brokensail (13609) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 28, 2015
On tap @ Seattle Tap Room. Amber in color with a sticky white head. Not very nice. Just a lot of lemon and grass with a strong caramel malt profile. At least it smells okay and decently citrusy, but the flavor is just not all that good. Lots of toffee and caramel sweetness with a rather pronounced tea bitterness and astringency. Slight apricot and peach in there, too. A few redeeming qualities, but overall unpleasant.

furthur (455) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - JUL 12, 2015
Draft at Safeco field, nice amber beer, little head in the clear solo. At the risk of sounding mundane, this I just another excellent west coast IPA. Aroma of spruce and citrus, taste spruce, juicy citrus, a little pale malt. Palate smooth and rich, carbonation fresh but not too bright. Pretty good!

mrjez (86) - Osaka, JAPAN - JUL 10, 2015
Poured from bomber into a pint glass. L: a nice dark gold, very clear, diminishing head. S: great nose. Big distinct grapefruit and pine notes working in harmony. T: any citrus is dumbed down in the taste, the piney hop takes front stage. F: a very bitter finish, but very drinkable if IBUs are your thing. It coats the tongue a tad. O: I’m not sure. I feel a bit short changed after that wonderful aroma. Taste wise, there’s nothing to set this apart from the pack. Would drink again though.

Man this stuff is good. Very malts forward but just enough cops so that it’s an IPA. Can drink the living beJesus out of this beer.

WABeerFiend (327) - - JUN 16, 2015
Poured from draught into a pilsner glass today. A: Grapefruit, sweet malt, flower, and maybe some grass. A: 2 finger head that recedes to some spots of foam. Hazy dark orange body. T: Grapefruit, flower, and honey malt dominate. Pine is subtle and lingering. P: Smooth and easy drinking. It has a little bit of resin. O: It’s great with food.

Ferris (8012) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 16, 2015
Draft - Nice pine and citrus notes, clear gold with a decent beige head. Resin, Woody, weedy and some balanced bitterness. Nothing special but quite drinkable.

AirForceHops (4681) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAY 10, 2015
650 ml bottle Nate P. carried back from his West Coast trip. Color is an orange / clear gold. Aroma is citrus, light floral with sweet malts.

The balance between hops and malt is rather good although it does lean a tad on the sweet side. The hops and bitterness comes from a mixture of citrus and pine and mild floral hints. The brew shows a mild trace of alcohol in the finish. Citrus and floral are more present than pine. Can tell this bottle was fresh from the brewery because the hops are still alive in well. It a nice standard IPA.
