look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Made with Northern Brewer, Centennial, and Cascade hops.
Clear, caramel in color forming a small white head with mild retention and lacing. Aroma is pungent with pronounced Cascade hops and little else (perhaps honey). Mouthfeel is crisp and very acidic with a medium body. Taste is also very pungent with pronounced citric and oily hops. Very much a heartburn brew with a medium strong citric grapefruit rind bitterness. Alcohol is midly perceptable in flavor. A bit overpowering, out of whack, and true to west-coast offerings. Not my bag but well-made.

Copper to brown in color, nice fluffy stand up beige head. Florals, biscuit, malt, and big hop blend into an appealing smell. Nice balanced malty taste, with a super strong hoppy kick. Creamy medium bodied feel, good bitter finish, crisp, nothing lingers. Asks you take another sip. One of their better offerings.

Hazy translucent copper color with a creamy thick settling head (thanks to the cask-conditioning). Heavy citrus rind and hop oils in the inital smell, with bready malt elements as well. Upfront grapefruit and herbal(grassy?) hop assault on the palate, crisp and clean malt with a very biscuit-like element, followed by a very clean hop "snap!" (I don't know how else to explain it) at the finish, that begs you to take another sip. Very big malt character, even for an IPA, with a clean hoppiness that dosen't linger on the palate. This is my favorite IPA... excellent character.
