My girl insisted on going to a yoga session, which happened to be down the street from the Pike street location of this brewery, during the Seattle stop of our 2011 summer vacation. So, where could I possibly spend my time in the interim?

This beer appears a cloudy orange copper hue, with one finger of creamy ecru head, which leaves a solid ring of inkblot lace around the glass as it settles. It smells of grapefruit, pineapple, and orange fruit bitterness, and some caramel malt. The taste is grapefruit rind, orange pith, and leafy pine hops, with some still oppressed soft bready caramel malt, trying its best. The carbonation is moderate, actually just right, in that it encourages yet another sip, the body smooth amongst an inherently zippy body. It finishes with some undeniably bitter pine and grapefruit hops.

Between the name and hop assault, some godly aspersions are cast with this IPA. In the end - enjoyably intense, without being overbearing.
