Copper gold, with a bit of haze and a frothy soapy white head. Smell is light, not much there, just pine. Flavor is big green chlorophyll. Lots of pine, and bitter green lettuce. Good but one note for me. Finish is extra dry from the huge amount of hops and lasts a long time. Not my favorite. Hops are tasty, bright and zesty, but this just seems like an attempt to cram in a bunch of hops without really crafting a balanced beer. Not my style.

Chill haze light amber without much head, but what's there leaves some good drippy lace.

Smell is less potent than flavor turns out to be, mainly giving off notes of orange, grapefruit, pine resin and wild herbs.

Taste leans bitter and harsh with woody pine and grapefruit, orange, herbal perfume, a little musky spice and faint toast.

Feel is medium-thin with a light crisp froth and semi-dry finish.

This hits all the right notes for an IPA. Piney and citrus in abundance. Intensly hoppy finish, as it should be. All around solid IPA. Don’t pass this one up.

On tap at Engine House 9 in Tacoma, WA.

This one pours pours a light golden orange/amber, with a small head and lots of lacing.

This smells like super zesty pine needles, orange zest, crackery malt and grassy/spicy hops.

This is super hoppy and spicy, with a wonderful dry earthy hop character, with very little malt character. It's super drinkable- cleanly fermented and delicious.

This is light bodied, with a nice lingering bitterness.

This is my first beer from them and it confirms their status as a great West Coast IPA purveyor.

Poured from a growler at a day old. Pours a deep golden amber with a thick tan foam head. The nose is of malt and light tree bark. Taste is malt forward. Caramel sweetness to it along with herbs, grasses and a very faint citrus lemon peel. The lemon peel is almost herbal tea like or medicinal. Medium to full body with a semi crisp clean finish. Good beer.

I had this beer on-tap in a pint glass at Collins Pub in Seattle.

Appearance: rich golden hue with a dash of haze, strong effervescence, and thick finger of tan foam. A nice lace is left on the glass; a beautiful IPA.

Smell: herbal, earthy hops over a toasty-ish base. Not too bad.

Taste: herbal and quite bitter; the base is a little sweet but not cloying. Malt is toasty rather than caramelly; a very solid IPA.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body but a huge carbonation and big, if ephemeral, creaminess.

Overall: I like this IPA a lot. Bitter but not overwhelming, sweet but with a dry herbiness. I dig it.

On tap at Pour House Grill in Bend OR. Never heard of this brewery before but they have certainly made a great impression. Bartender told me they won GABF for this brew a few years back. Def worth trying if you can get your hand on it.

L- clear amber color. Poured with a half inch head that dissipates fairly quickly

S- pear, citrus, floral.. not the strongest flavors on the nose.

T- fresh bread, pine, slight grapefruit,
Unique smooth ipa that to me tastes more like a pale ale. Very good.
