I had this beer on tap at the washington brewer’s festival. It truly exemplifies everything that an american IPA should be. Anyone can brew a bitter IPA, it’s not challenging at all... This beer is loaded with juicy citrus hop flavor and aroma that will punch you in the face. This was a very clean finishing beer that did not linger in your mouth long.

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Super hops forward flavor and finish. Lovely beer with some super flavors. I love the complex hops and added mosaic.

Draught. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a moderate head on it. Nose is nice and hoppy with some great floral elements to it. Taste was very pleasantly bitter, and easy to drink. A great drink...

On tap at the brewery (and in cans that night). Deep golden orange with a lively off-white head. I was seriously impressed by this one. Very (very) hop-forward, as it should be -- herbal and citrus notes dominate, and the malts are really only in here for weight and balance. It’s a showcase of the hops grown within a couple of miles of the brewpub (the building is surrounded by hop vines), and it’s just delicious. Not too boozy, but very full-flavored. I wouldn’t call it sessionable, but I certainly wouldn’t mind drinking this all night. A little more bitter grass than my hometown Fremont Interurban, but very similar otherwise. Great stuff.

12 oz can- Pours hazy orange with little particles floating around and a very nice three finger head that reduces leaving a ice cream float appearance and sticky soapy lace. Aroma is fresh piney hops, some citrus, all hops. The taste is fresh tasting, I am getting some sort of melon, very exotic tasting, hoppy, very easy to drink. The body is medium but kind of light which I like in this style, and carbonation is medium. Good, very enjoyable.

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2013 On tap at O’Malley’s in Rathdrum, ID. Pours almost clear old gold with a medium off-white head with decent retention; leaves sheeting lace. Aroma is catty, piney, very hoppy. Taste starts out sweet before quickly turning bitter and lingering through a long finish. Bit of an alcohol burn. Super good IPA.
