APPEARANCE: Orange and mostly clear with a bit of haziness. The quarter-inch white head is not too impressive at first, but sticks around for a long time, it’s made of tiny bubbles. Lacing is very strong with those tiny bubbles, full coverage on the back third of the glass. Really, great lacing on this one.

SMELL: A lot of orange on the nose. A little pine and grass along with some grapefruit are also pretty strong.

TASTE: Nice and juicy with lots of citrus flavors; lemon, orange, grapefruit. A bigger grassy character than I would like is present, but it still works. A little minty hint on the end and this one stays bitter through and through.

MOUTHFEEL: Those tiny bubbles don’t mean tiny carbonation, there is a nice sparkle to it. The beer is on the dryer side, but the hop juiciness actually provides a nice, semi-sweet balance.

OVERALL: My first sip seemed too bitter, not something I say very often, but by sip number two, I was appreciating it more and more. I like it.

Pint on tap at Roasters by SeaTac. Copper color with half finger of foam. Decently malty with balanced hoppiness. Smooth lingering bitterness. Overall very enjoyable.

On draft at Seattle Tap Room at Sea Tac into a shaker.

A: clear copper with minimal khaki head, decent lacing.

S & M: modest nose, caramel and toffee, some pine and a little fruity but nondescript citrus...pretty balanced and modest bitterness...similar to many hoppy ambers in mouthful....a little rough. finishes with a modest amount of bitterness and another blast of caramel sweetness.

all in all, this is okay, but in a crowded field, it doesn't stand out.

I got this as a gift from a friend who went out West. This was quite good!

In a word, meh. Pretty average IPA with a fairly weak hop profile. ABV at 7% had me expecting a bolder profile. Probably will look elsewhere for my future hop fix.

On tap at the Seattle Taproom at Sea-Tac. Slightly hazy amber color, one finger head that quickly faded to a thin film with some nice lacing. Aroma is piney and fruity but not too strong. Decent flavor with a good piney flavor and malty sweetness. Mouthfeel was medium bodied with very little carbonation. Overall this one was just OK, nothing special.
