On-tap at Tap House Grill in Seattle. A maltier IPA, she says. Why not, I'll take a pint. On to the beer:

A creamy inch of head caps this rich copper colored beer, and the creaminess of the head and retention is awesome. A maltier IPA in aroma, sure, I don't mind. I still pick up orange and vague mixed fruits. Maybe Wildcat will get its motor running when I taste it? Well, not exactly. Okay, I'll be fair, the taste itself is fine, but there's something in that aftertaste that kills much of the pleasure I have getting. Esters and a side citrus fruits make an acceptable IPA taste, however the aftertaste is phenolic and bitter like aspirin, and it sticks like glue to the palate. Something didn't go right here, (brewer or alehouse related, I don't know who gets the bigger blame). Killing that bad aftertaste would boost the taste score an extra 0.5 easy.

Dark gold color, good 3/4" white head with above average lacing to it. Aroma was just soapy bitter cascade hops.

Taste had plenty of bitterness, nugget, cascade, chinook, maybe even simcoe I'd guess, all the bittering hops here. Not my favorite format, but very affordable nonetheless in the bomber for a standard ipa with no frills.

Very, very good.

Nice creamy, thick head; Foamy, not bubbly. Laces glass for its entirety. Pale sweet copper color. Smells like a million dollars; flowers, hops, buttery biscuit. Taste follows. Upfront bitterness, buttered toast, bitterness lingers pleasantly on the finish like cilantro. Feels thick and creamy but not too heavy.

This is an overall amazing IPA imo. And very affordable at 5 bucks a bomber at Gravity beer market in Olympia makes this a go-to IPA.
