UPDATED: OCT 8, 2015 22oz. bottle. Pours a nice amber color with a good head. Smells good and tastes even better. A perfect balance of hops and one of the best IPA’s I have had.

22oz bottle, thanks Bmartin08, smells fantastic and looks great too, tastes just like cascade hops should, nice and balanced with a little zip on the tail end. a good west coast IPA, yet another beer i could drink daily if it was available

Light watery yellow pour. Aroma is grapefruit with slight grass. Grapefruit hoppy profile in the flavor. Not as much grass as is evident in the nose. Delightful IPA that isn’t over the top or over-bearing.

starfireming (309) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAR 23, 2007
Cloudy golden body, rocky cream-coloured head. Extraordinarily hoppy aroma. Bitter flavour, hop-py!

can8ianben (1458) - State College, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2007
Deliciously hoppy. Sampled on tap in DC. Orange colour, nice frothy head bursing with pine and citrus. Beer is very smooth and subtly dry and bitter in the finish. Sweet on the lips, and every well done.

rederic (3250) - montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 14, 2007
22oz bottle, hazy yellow golden hue, with a small creamy white head, leaving laces, cascade floral hop nose, with some fruity orange and peach accents, with a toasted malt note, good piney, coniferous, cedary hop aromas follow through on a medium-bodied palate with a crisp piney hop, with a peachy, orangeish fruity character, with some coniferous, leafy, grassy and cedary flowery hop accents, hint of lemon fruitiness, leading towards a nice leafy, grassy hop bitterness finish. A good interpretation of an i.p.a.

Bottle in a pint glass. Nice hazy orange color with great head. Easy to drink. The 7% alcohol is fairly well hidden. Will buy and definately drink again.

Bomber is a chilled pint glass. Poured up a dank orange color. Light on the hops, but more alcohol aftertaste than I would expect for a 7% alcohol beer. Good IPA overall.
