22 oz bottle share at Thanksgiving, bro brought it straight from Seattle! L: Amber, clear. Fresh head on the beer. S: Prominent hop aroma of floral and pine. T: High hop forward flavor, medium-low malty flavors, and pretty dry finish. F: Medium body, good alcohol warming as a DIPA. O: Pretty balanced, good bitterness, and smooth for the abv.

Poured from a 22-ounce bottle with no date a clear orange under 2" thick white head which leaves semi-rings and spotty lace. Aroma is piney and resiny. Flavors are malts and piney hops. Chewy, bitter finish. Medium body. Just O.K.

Appearance: pours a hazy orange color with a 1" head. Some lace develops during the session.

Smell: fruit sweetness and some earthy tones are easy to detect.

Taste: caramel, orange, mild grapefruit, some pear, and an earthy bitterness rounds it out.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Crisp to start, less crisp at the finish. Long lasting aftertaste here.

Overall: a decent beer that has a nice flavor profile.

Bottle from Boise Co-op. A return to the classic NW IPA. Clear, light amber with a soft, sticky off white head. Resinous hops lead the aroma, some sweet caramel malts underneath. Taste follows with up front hop bitterness, slick, smooth, sweet malts, and then more lingering bitterness. What I remember early IPAs being. Tasty.
