Bought a sixer at Trader Joe's. Poured into a standard pint glass.
Good looking head and left foam down the glass. Not a great bouquet but mild. Hazy, golden color.
Slightly oily taste to the hops, leaves a slight bitterness at the end.
Carbonation was mild the malt was average. A decent IPA with a warm feeling to it.

The Brewer states "an IPA with a wonderful aromatic hop bouquet, a pleasant hop bitterness with citrus overtones and a deliciously round and lingering aftertaste." And I have to agree, this is another fine PNW IPA. You expect an IPA to taste at least this good when you order one in Seattle or anywhere else in Washington St.

Handsome dark amber color with the off-white foam bubbling up in the tall Pilsener glass. Medium body with a malty base. Just a hint of sweetness on the lips. A woody sensation with plenty of spritz in the mouth. A grainy aroma with a hint of flowery hops.

Hops are full-bodied with a zesty flavor. Some sharp oily notes. Quite a rich mouthful of flavor. Lots of aromatics with a fruity peach flavor with a piney edge. The bitterness is moderate with a leafy and even musty note that is rather pleasant.This seems to grow more malty and less bitter as it warms up. An interesting and mellower variety of IPA, and thoroughly drinkable. From the 22 oz bottle bought at Bottleworks in Seattle.
