On tap at the brewery. Pours a hazy gold with medium frothy off white head that lasts. The aroma is tropical fruit and dank. Thin mouth, juicy hop, grapefruit, nice light bitterness, very good.

Syzzer (633) - Oregon, USA - AUG 19, 2015
On tap @ hood river brewery. Best of their beers Iíve had. Piney hops are solid, tolerable bitter finish. Good IPA example. Solid transparent blonde color. 8.8 bd

fiulijn (18725) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 8, 2015
Draught at the brewpub; 6.2% ABV
Hazy golden color with compact head. Delicate pale malts perfectly support this ale loaded with citrusy hops, a real hop explosion. Easy to drink.
Very good. More expressive than the Strictly Rude #15.

Imaena (2177) - Maputo, MOZAMBIQUE - SEP 27, 2013
Draught. For the west coast this is a flimsy IPA. I was hoping for more bite and grassyness.

dfinney23 (2658) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 25, 2012
Bitter to the point of being one-dimensional. Citrus and floral, citrus and floral, etc.

Alphadelic (2144) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 18, 2012
A dry and very Columbus oriented green-tea/marijuana nose. Crisp with a tight and light carbonation. A light kiwi flavour and acidity with a slow bitterness. The carbonation reminds me Kronenburg 1664 and I donít mean that as an insult, it just does. I think itís nice, the bitterness builds a little too intensely and that weedy flavour could become too much if I bought more than a glass.

dchmela (3006) - Orlando, Florida, USA - APR 22, 2011
Tap at the brewpub. Light amber pour with a thin white head. Big citrus hop aroma. Nice smooth malt body, caramel and a big citrus hop bitterness. Good brew.
