Draught at Apex, Portland
Hazy golden color with compact head. Musky strong IPA, moderately sweet, but not caramelly or heavy; the hops are sturdy. Not necessarily easy to drink, or exciting.
Heavy beer. Heavy concept.

Orangish pour at GABF. Flavors of grapefruit peel, dank hops, sweet malts. Big beer. Sweet and hoppy at the same time.

mcberko (9344) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 8, 2015
On tap at Apex, pours a clear golden copper with a small white head. Aroma brings out piney and herbal hops, and biscuity malt. Flavour is wonderfully balanced, with loads of piney hops, some herbal notes, and just enough dry malt to back. Excellent balance - with loads of hops that don’t become burdensome. Wonderful.

From the Jug at the GABF Colorado Convention Center, Denver 11/10/2008 Very fruity pineapple aroma. Golden coloured and very hoppy with a crisp and bitter lasting finish.

BMan1113VR (7904) - Los Angeles, California, USA - NOV 21, 2011
On tap at GABF. Pours with a clear yellow body and a white head. Aromas are strongly hoppy, dank, but quite pungent, onion and a bit of cat piss. Flavors are quite bitter, pungent, really strong ammonia/cat piss. Lively bubbles, dry. Just too pungent sadly, the hop presentation and malt bill were nice, but ammonia overpowered.

Draft - Lots of nice grapefruit. Clear gold with a decent white head. Lots of grapefruit and nice bitterness. Clean and simple.

Courtesy of jayg, thanks Jay. Pours clear copper with gold edges and thin off white head. Wow, big aroma of pine hops that seem to border on wet hops along with grassiness. It delivers a big mouth feel full of pine, resiny, grassy, wet hops that hit the spot for this hop head of mine. A mild malt sweetness never exceeds at making its presence felt beyond just a murmur. It leaves a nice pine hop sense into the after taste.

On tap at the 2009 NABA. A stand out beer for sure. No surprise that it won gold. Pours a golden color with a medium frothy white head. A huge aroma of citrus hops, grapefruit and pine. The flavor was excellent; bitter, lots of citrus, pine and caramel malts as well. Flavorful and strong but very quaffable like a good IIPA should be. I wish I had tried this a few more times.
