I think it has to have a picture of Sig Hanson on it....

I think of it as an IPA light.

"Northwest" = nasty grapefruit flavoured beer.

I guess that makes sense. I also thought the pine/citrus flavor constituted the San Diego Pale Ales/IPAs? Maybe I should just quit while I'm ahead!

I got 6 differnet bombers from various PNW breweries sent(that i cant get here) not to long ago. After each one i noticed a similar taste to them all as well as the known pine hop thing.I think they generally share locally grown malts,maybe Great Western malt mainly as well as the some of the known PNW hops maybe. I've always thought WCIPA's were their own kind of ipa though.

We have a joke around here that a NWPA is the IPA's we send to the east coast so we can keep the good stuff local.

I've been searching the forum and the internet for a general idea. Does this style actually exist (not a BJCP style of course) or is it just a marketing scheme by some of those northwest breweries (Rogue, Deschutes)? If it does exist, what qualifies a pale ale as "northwest"?
Probably a pretentious marketing ploy by the breweries in the Washington/Oregon area to set themselves aside from breweries from the rest of the country?

In all honesty though, it's probably an aggressively hopped grapefruit bomb, which I usually find delicious.
