2.33/5  rDev -19.1%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Appearance: Pours a golden amber with lots of white head. The head dissipates pretty quickly and the lacing is passable.

Smell: A very typical IPA that obviously little time was spent on creating. The smell has what you would expect to be there but not up to par with better IPAs on the market.

Taste: Like the smell you have a typical unimpressive IPA taste. As a beer overall this taste isn't bad but for a craft beer and an IPA from the PNW this beer fails miserably.

Mouthfeel: The beer really saves itself here with a good amount of carbonation and not being unpleasant on the pallet.

Drinkability: This beer is a waste of money to brew and a waste of your money to buy and drink. Just stay away, okay?

Not what I expected from a Northwest brewery. Very malty all around. Seems to be mostly bitter hopped instead of aroma hopped. I didn't really enjoy this beer and would not have it again if given the chance. The taste is more of an amber/red with big malty flavors. It really bugs me also when brewers don't include the ABV and IBU's on their label. I want to know what I am drinking. Dissapointed in this beer.

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a regular pint glass. Shared with my buddy BH who wholeheartedly agrees with these notes!

Appearance: Golden amber pour; lots of foamy white head which quickly dissipated, leaving minimal white lacing.

Smell: Nothing jumped out at me; completely unremarkable.

Taste: Took three or four good pulls before dumping it down the sink. This level of brewing is a disgrace to the fine tradition of PNW IPAs!

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied; low level of carbonation.

Drinkability: It's been a long time since I dumped a beer down the drain, but this was a completely undrinkable waste of my time and $ !!! Can't understand how a brewery that makes this kind of swill can compete in a marker full of excellent breweries!
