this was definitely the best of the beers i had from georgetown brewing. its a nice light and balance ipa, super fresh tasting from the tap, a lot more refined than their bodhizafa and a lot less malty than their mannys pale ale. tons of fresh citrus notes the the hops here, relatively uninterrupted by any malt, lemon and grapefruit here, very sort of classically northwestern while at the same time never really getting all that bitter, and staying dangerously drinkable for its abv. a little bit of an oily feel to it, but pretty light, with fresh cut pine and grapefruit in the finish and just a light cereal complexion from the grain. its well carbonated and on the drier side, simple but very well made beer, which seems to be their thing. in the northwest, there are a lot of more extreme and new school styled ipa types to pick from, this is, after all, the motherland of hoppy beer as far as i am concerned, but something a bit classic thats high quality and very drinkable is always welcome, and thats exactly what we have here. less distinctive i think than others, but there is something to be said for being a classic...

Poured from a 12oz into an IPA glass.
Look- copper, clear, good head retention, minimal lacing.
Smell- grapefruit, floral, piney.
Taste- grapefruit, piney, slightly dank, well balanced.
Feel- slightly thin, smooth.
Overall- excellent beer, very excited that it is now available in a can.

Canned 2 weeks ago. Beautiful transparent golden amber with a creamy, very persistent, white head that leaves some nice lacing. Aroma is grapefruit peel. Taste is sweet malt with citrus and tropical fruit flavors. Medium body, nice carbonation.

Handsome clear amber brew with swirls of white suds in the wine glass. Quite spritzy in the mouth with a light body. Fruity and musty aroma. Malty, though, and the sweet kiss of each new sip is quite inviting. Hops take over and darkness descends.

Warm malt with some toast plus melon. This gets very woody and dark after a few sips. Aftertaste is quite bitter with some grapefruit peel. I think the serious IPA aficionado will go for this. From the 12 oz can purchased at Whidbey Beer Works in Oak Harbor.

12 Oz can. Canned date, July 7th

Pours a copper body with a white head. Good retention and thin lacing

Very prominent grapefruit on the nose

Taste follows with a nice grapefruit bitterness

Crisp even feel

This beer screams 'Seattle" to me...I have been a fan of Lucille for quite a few years and up until now it was only available on tap. To some extent this has made Lucille a little larger then life to me. This canned product is still pretty good ! I have a regular gig playing blues a few blocks from the brewery and the Lucille there is amazing cause it's so fresh. If I had reviewed it there it would have been 5's across the board. Do yourself a favor. If you are ever in a bar that has it on tap get it !

12oz can from a 6-pk purchased a a local grocery store for $8.99.. According to the stamp on the can, it was canned on"06/15/2017." Amazed I've never reviewed it before now, considering how many times I've had I on tap.

Poured into a Mad Bomber IPA glass, this was a shade of amber just shy of copper, with good clarity and a big, creamy beige head leaving lots of sticky lace.

Grapefruity and piney hop nose with a subordinate, bready malt scent well into the background.

Bitter and citrusy and slightly tropical fruity hop flavors lead the charge and pretty much dominate the flavor throughout, with the malts providing a good backbone but not intruding otherwise. Bitter and sappy at the swallow.

Medium bodied, with a thick, oily, resiny mouthfeel.

Tastes like a classic PNW IPA, which, I suppose, it is. Tasty but not spectacular. An excellent choice when wanting a well made, old school IPA. This could be a regular guest in my fridge, now that it's available in cans.

On tap at Tap Room, Seattle.
Pale amber with film of white that speckles. 4
Orange hard candy. 3.75
Caramel base, jagged little herbal bite, then a whack of C hops and slight dank comeback. 4
Sugared grapefruit linger.
Almost medium, chewy, round. 4

Old school. A bit light - body and hops both - for the strength. Nothing wrong with this, it’s just 5 years behind the times. 3.75

I enjoyed this great well balanced IPA after a really nice bike ride up to Edmunds with my friend Karen, in Greenwood neighborhood of Seattle, at the Lodge pub.
