My bottle says 7.4 %abv. It pours a light gold, not much foam, going going almost gone. Pine, grapefruit, kinda tropical fruit going on. I can’t smell any malt. Taste is true to the smell. I feel the bitterness level is a bit high without the saving graces of any malt. I gave it chances to improve over time. Fail. Not bad, not what I like.

L: brilliant gold column permeated by rapidly rising bubbles blanketed by a 2" cream colored sticky and lacy foam collar with good retention.

S: hop fruit aromas, tropical fruit, pineapple, citrus and hints of mint and pine.

T: Citrus, tropical fruit and papaya lead to an assertive bitter with some hop based astringency.

F: very creamy smooth, medium bodied with medium, very soft carbonation

O: full flavored, very drinkable beer.

Pours an almost clear only slightly hazy light orange color with a thin white head that dissipates quickly into a thin cap that leaves lacing with each sip. The aroma is wonderfully tropical fruits with pineapple and mango out front. The taste is like the aroma with just a little pine tossed in. A touch more carbonation would help, but that's nitpicking. Overall a great beer.

Pours a hazy orange with a small white head. Smells of oranges, wheat, hops, and other fruits. Tastes of very light hops, sweet wheat, citrusy fruits, and sweet tropical fruits. Medium in body and carbonation. Overall this is a very good mild IPA.

Had at their brewery on Capitol Hill. It's better than your average IPA. It's floral with hints of raspberry. Good substitute when Space Dust is not available.
