Copper color, small head; fades quickly. Decent lacing. Smells pretty standard. Taste follows- perfectly balanced, really. Maybe too balanced if I can say such a thing. Well carbonated. Medium bodied. This is a really consistent and reliable ipa.

Rather malty with a distinct sweetness. Cedar and cigars come to mind. Fruity hops with a citrus finish. Mango with orange marmalade and a bitter peel aftertaste. Roasted malt with something overripe, like fermenting pineapple.

Lovely white cap of foam on the dark amber brew. Long-lasting suds. Makes a nice picture in the big Stella Artois goblet. Spritzy mouthfeel. This all improves after some sipping. Bitter, but not a hop bong. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Malt & Vine in Redmond, Wash.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a medium coppery amber with a one finger, f fine, off-white head with excellent retention and lacing. Aroma of caramel malt, light grassy hops, hints of apple juice and tropical fruit. Flavor is rich caramel malt with notes of light stone fruit and citrus, hops are subdued but of the fruit and mild citrus variety rather than intense herbal bitterness. Hops are not that noticeable in the taste, but leave a long grassy bitterness in the finish. A very pleasant creamy body with great mouth feel. An aberration in NW IPAs, with nowhere near the hop aggessiveness I'd expect, but very enjoyable as a malty, creamy old fashioned IPA. I'd put the profile closer to a classic red ale for the malty body and less intense hops, but this is one ale that wins me over despite not toeing the contemporary style line. Not what I'd go for if I was in the mood for a hop bomb, but I will absolutely buy this again. I've admired this brewery's Scotch style ales in the past and will add this one to my list to watch for.
