Hoppy notes that linger. Less flavorful than I expected

On tap at Elk Public House. Served in a pint glass.

Appearance is a copper color with a slight haze and a small white head.

Smell is a faint citrus aroma.

Taste is a dry bitter pine and dandelion flavor. Not great.

Mouthfeel is dry and mildly carbonated.

Drinkability is just average. It's an ordinary IPA. I wouldn't want a lot of it.

Can't go wrong with this classic hoppy IPA. Find very few who won't drink a pint of it.

Served in straight pint glass. Poured a medium gold color with about 1/2 inch of just off-white head that had good retention and some lacing.

The aroma was nicely floral hops, otherwise subdued and benign. The flavor was also floral hops, had good balance and finished with a slightly surprising citrus tang.

The body was the typical mid-range of the style. Drinkability was pretty good, this is an IPA you can have several of without killing your tatstebuds. Overall, an OK example of the style, worth trying when you see it.

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.

Growler from the new grower station which adds the CO2 saturation. Great looking head, nice lacing falling down the 12 oz glass. Taste subdued grapefruit, hops hiding until the swallow. Fast flashes of citrus and floral oils. Mouth feels satisfied. Overall a good bear not even close to to world class beer but very drinkable. Cheers!

Growler filled directly at the Georgetown Brewery.

A: Golden copper color with a bit of the unfiltered haze and a small white head of foam.

S: Primarily citrus but a bit of malt.

T: Pine flavor is dominant, but alcohol is present and not masked.

M: Medium carbonation. Alcohol is not masked. Very noticeable.

O: I have a soft spot in my heart for Georgetown. I regularly stop in and get growlers of Lucille, but when compared to other IPAs, it is very middle of the road. Nice to bring to an informal gathering, but I'd pick something else over it when given the choice.

A: Moderate citrusy,piney, resiny hops upfront, followed by a light slightly sweet malt aroma.

A: Golden color with a light orange hue, pretty clear with a thin white head that rests as a film. Lots of lacing in the glass.

T: Citrusy, piney, resiny hops with moderate malt sweetness. The beer is crisp, with moderate hop bitterness and finishes dry.

M: Medium-light bodied with moderate carbonation.

O: Pretty good; Solid citrusy-piney hop aroma and flavor, but has a bit too much malt and hop bitterness.

On tap at the horseshoe at all places.

A pours a amber color with a 1 finger head that dissipates quickly.

S notes of pine and some grapefruit.

T the taste follows the nose with more pine and grape fruit.

M its about average for an ipa.

Overall this is a solid ipa but here on the hop heavy west coast it kind of gets lost in the shuffle. But all in all a good drink.
