tiong (6488) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAY 20, 2016
Draught @ Big Time, Seattle, WA. Pours dark orange with a smooth head. Aroma of juicy fruits, pine, toffee and caramel. Taste is sweetish, malty and caramely with some pine, resin and citrus. Finish is crisp, malty and caramely with some pine and resinous hops. A bit unbalanced.

asedzie (786) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Draft at the Hopvine, Seattle. Pours copper, brief wispy head. Nose is light and floral with mild honey-like notes in the background. Flavor is just classic NW hop forward real ale & really good - nicely textured caramel malt of the back alongside a hop profile that begins like orange marmalade, has some spice in the middle and finishes with a mouthful of lingering piney resin.

jgb9348 (5729) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 1, 2013
Hazy golden coloured body with a hint of some orange glows and a nice proper two centimetre tall white head. Aroma of nice citrusey and piney hops with a good malt nose and a little yeast as well. Medium-bodied; Fresh hop flavour with a good balance of malt and some sweetness from caster sugar on the tail end, but the hops end piney and a bit floral. Aftertaste shows a nice subtle hop flavour, but more malts are noticeable than from before. Overall, a solid IPA with less of a focus on the big hops, and more on the balance - which works well! I sampled this pint on draught, while shopping for more beer, at Bottleworks in Seattle, Washington for US$4.00 on 10-February-2013.

fiulijn (19387) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 16, 2012
Cask at the brewpub, 6% ABV, 8-4-8-5-17=42
Hazy golden color, with typical cask head, frothy, very persistent. The aroma is less powerful but more delicate than in the draught one, with nice fruitiness, yellow stone fruits. The mouthfeel is greatly improved, being smooth, and allowing the toffee flavor and malt to shine completely; the hopping is strong and delicate at the same time, perfectly complementing the malts. Balanced final.

Draught at the brewpub, 6% ABV, 8-4-7-5-16=40
Cloudy golden to light amber color; creamy head. Lovely aroma of fruity hops, citrusy. The body is lean, it has a very good toffee flavor, the hopping is perfect, powerful but not oppressive, with plenty of hop resins and bitter orange character.
Fresh and excellent.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - JAN 10, 2012
Draft @ brewpub. Nice hazy unfiltered look. Warm orange gold. Scattered lace . Aroma has a rustic character with lots of nutty fresh malts that are earthy and blend well with the earthy hops, which are never overpowering. Orange peel. Almost has a continental hop feel...Crisp bracing bitter finish but overall a balanced beer. not sticky at all. Good IPA
