At the end of a fabled week during the winter of 1980, in a fever-pitched Olympic stadium, one hockey game changed the course of American sports history. Barroom legend has it that the night before the underdog American team took to the ice with no chance of winning, world champion coach Herb Brooks took a sip of a bold and simple ale that inspired the bold and simple words that inspired a team to become legends. Now we ask you, what was the true miracle on February 2, 1980? We can’t be sure what the exact formula was for Brooks’ inspiration. But this IPA’s bold and aromatic blend of floral and citrus hard checks your nose and follows it up with a medium intense hop bitterness that doesn’t linger. We shot. We scored.

Clear gold with sticky white head. Heady earth aromas....dirt, pine and underbrush. Full bodied palate is very bitter, very green. To me, this is a hop bomb. No complexity, no subtlety, just a bite into a big green hop. I don’t like it. To the brewers credit, if the ratings on this site are any indication, he does.know what sells.

Bottle from 5000! Just in time for hockey playoffs. Pours a hazy amber color with a light tan head. Aroma is caramel, sweet malts and some faded hops. Taste is sweet with some bitterness. Pretty balanced. Medium bodied and easy to drink. Pretty decent.

Ferris (9740) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 10, 2013
Bottle - Grapefruit and some pine with a malty backbone. Clear copper with a foamy head. Grapefruit and resin with a strong bitterness that tapers quickly. You can feel the alcohol in the finish. Not bad.

Spicy, floral, and citrus hop notes grace the sweet aroma. Hazy copper body topped by a decent white head that recedes to cover with some lacing. Hop forwards flavour delivers what the aroma suggests with a nice supporting malt base and moderate to strong bitterness. Moderate for a PNW IPA that is. Medium bodied with decent carbonation.. Enjoyed on tap at Portland Craft.

trujahwarrior (509) - Monroe, Washington, USA - APR 1, 2013
Pours a hazy copper color with a thick creamy head that leaves amazing lacing. Smells of citrus, caramel, pine, and resin. Tastes of all the same things with the citrus being the most prevalent flavor. This is also very hop forward. Mouthfeel is chewy and creamy with good carbonation and a dry finish. Overall this was a really good tasting northwest style ipa highly recommended for any hop head.

ACHops (1084) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 28, 2013
On tap @ Tippe & Drague. Pours dark orange with thick creamy very lacey head. Aroma is mildly sweet malt. Taste is medium caramel malt with big juicy citrus hop flavors. Notes of orange, passion fruit, lemon, and grapefruit. Bitter on the finish. Sizable abv for a standard IPA. Honestly not a standout among excellent WA IPAs, but not at all bad.

Pleasant aroma balanced tween the caramel sweet and the hop musky. Clear light amber with modest off white head, a little ehh in the mouth.. Flavor is woodsy, with caramel and distant cardboard, Dry finish
