Thought this beer to be quite nice. Almost a honey note in it that I kind of like with an IPA on occasion. It seems to mellow the bite some. I'm not familiar with Yakima Valley hops being from the east cost but I can only assume that's what provides the uniqueness.

On-tap at brewery:

Pours golden yellow with a thin lasting head that leaves lacing.

The smell is floral with pine and some bready notes.

The taste is floral/pine. Bready pale malt balances it in the middle. Refreshing bitterness in the finish.

This easy-drinking IPA shows off the floral/piney hops well while keeping a pale, bready malt balance until the bitter bite in the finish. A nice American Northwest-style IPA.

22 oz bottle. No bottling info

Pours a hazy golden-orange body with a slightly off white head good lacing, some retention

Smell is not very pronounced but what I am getting is a floral pine with malt

Taste has the malt leading with a slightly bitter hop finish

Average full feel

Overall an average IPA. Nothing wrong with it, but nothing really stood out either.... I prefer their regular IPA

For a golden IPA it pours more a hazy copper or classic IPA color. Had a bit of lacing from the bottle and has a light aroma of nothing special that I found. Taste is pleasant but a bit thin to me but is a good juicy feeling as it goes down. Good beer but not what I exactly expected.
