Pours a orange-tinged amber in the big Duvel tulip. Plenty of foam and even some lacing in the glass. Pleasantly sudsy mouthfeel. Toasted malt aroma with some resiny hops.

The malt flavors start this out promisingly. It turns out to be more thin and sharp, though there is some malty body. Bitter and barky. It's quite acidic. There is some flowery and piney hop aromatics. Mostly the grapefruit pith takes over.

Overall, this is insanely hopped and I find it barely drinkable. It may, however, please the hard-bitten hop fanatic. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Pioneer Market in La Conner.

The Wild Cat is a Pacific Northwest "reliable" when it comes to a legit IPA. . . Some might consider a trailblazer for the NWPA movement we are having up here in this region. It pours darker than your standard IPA, boasting a very inviting fragrance from a good combo dose of its hops. Consider it foreplay, because the taste/mouthfeel knows how to put the screws in with a sinister "hop-bite" that leaves you wanting more. . . So be careful ; )

They sell the makings of this IPA in a very user-friendly brewers kit that my father-in-law and I just tossed together while enjoying a growler of it. Hope the results of labor prove as delicious as what made us want to buy it in the first place.

A great Northwest IPA, just as the bottle stated. Big earthy and citrusy hops with a clean, dry and nutty malt backbone from a clean yet slightly tart yeast character. Bright gold with a big, rocky white head leaves globs of lacing on the glass make for quite the appearance as well. Exactly the kind of IPA I want while I am in the Northwest.

The bitterness is way out front, I proves as you get past the first few taste. This beer just needs a good cheeseburger to go with it, Alone it is for those who like to max out on the bitter end. Probably taste much better high up in Snoqualmie. Take it to a friends and see what they think!
