Bottled (thanks Degarth!). Hazy orange colour, huge white foamy head. Aroma is really fruity hoppy along with some hints of yeast. Flavour is quite the same, but has some really big grassyness in it. Aroma is slightly better than the aroma. Still a good one!

2012-12-21, draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver, 7-4-7-4-14=36
Hazy golden color with small creamy head. Nice aroma, with some fruity hops and some cheesy yeast. Smooth mouthfeel, malt flavor, light biscuity impression; it has a powerful hopping, providing extreme bitterness, resins and some fruitiness.
A solid IPA, but not very fresh character.

2006-03-26, bottle at Freakin’ Frog, Las Vegas, 7-5-8-5-16=41
Hazy amber color; creamy head, nice lace. Nice fruity aroma (apricots). Malty taste, medium strength, with a good fruity aromatic hopping. One American IPA like many others, that is: I like it.
