Poured from a 64 ounce growler into a tulip glass. Filled yesterday afternoon at the brewery.

A: A finger of head fades relatively quickly. Clear gold and rather pretty.

S: Very pleasant, aromatic hops. Light spice (pepper?), lemon zest, and wet grass.

T/M: Not imposing, but pleasant and interesting. Bright, carbonated, and somewhat minerally. There is some citrus, but the hops are generally more earthy and delicate. Swish it around in your mouth and it has a solid presence.

O: A really enjoyable, solid, interesting IPA. Recommended.

On tap at their Tap Room. A creamy head and a lace sheet. Funky aroma and taste, a little astringent. High alpha bittering hop apparently developed 10 years ago in Oregon. Not a great IPA, but still a hop delivery and I was in a hop west coast kind of way.
