I'm really excited. At Pete's in Bellevue, I found a few 22s of Hopworks Urban Brewery (HUB, in Portland) IPX Amarillo Single Hop ale. It's an IPA made with 100% Amarillo hops. They actually give a shout out to the guys from my hometown (the Gamache Family) who created the Amarillo variety, which I thought was pretty cool.

Ha! I was just going to post that beer as well - I really liked it. AleSmith is a great brewery.

Agreed, they make some good stuff. Visited the brewery/tasting room last month and everything we drank was awesome. They do some limited release stuff I'd love to get my hands on.

I've only had it once, and it was the Breakaway IPA. I remember it being pretty good, not amazing, but it was quite awhile ago. I'll have to rectify that!

BTW, I heard that Ballast Point Brewing out of San Diego is finally being distributed in WA. So, I went to Whole Foods and, sure enough, ended up finding a sixer of the Sculpin IPA. Really, really excellent beer - top 10 IPA for me. The only downside: $14.99 per six. Ouch.
