On tap at the brewery in Bend, OR. Pours dark orange with a light white head. Citrus and piney hop aroma with a touch of pineapple. Nice well-balanced flavor with an assertive hop bitterness. Very nicely done.

trevor211 (1298) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2012
On tap at Brouwer’s. Not sure this one lives up to some of these ratings. Orange pour, with a smallish head, and a nose that’s certainly hop-forward, but doesn’t give much of a fresh punch. They’re right on in citing tropical fruits in the flavor -- pineapple is definitely apparent, and that makes this a bit more intriguing... but it’s still fairly, well, standard. Definitely decent. But not great.

Smurf2055 (1293) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Pours cloudy like grapefruit juice, no head. Smell is hoppy citrus and floral, taste is very crisp, a bit juicy, grapefruit and pine. Fuller bodied. Reminds me a lot of Zombie Dust. Great beer.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - APR 29, 2012
Hazy gold, beige head. Aroma of pine and citrus, some malt, but mostly a wallop of citrusy hops. Taste is great, very well balanced. This is the kind of IPA I could drink all day long, okay maybe not sitting at 7.5, but I could definitely have several and then several more the next day.

Zeswaft (1343) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 24, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2013 F my last rating. This beer is the tits. Awesome citrus hops and healthy malt to balance. I order this any time it’s offered on tap. Top 5 IPA of all time. Another above exemplary PNW IPA yet another reason for me to branch out. Golden color. Fruity hop aroma, and flavor is very citrusy though a little lacking in malt balance. Alcohol a little too detectable for 7.5%.

openbottle (19) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - APR 18, 2012
Cloudy pour with very nice lacing. Smells of hoppy citrus and fruit. Very nice aroma. Taste falls flat with bitterness with little flavor. Maybe a liitle too much malt? Big promise up front but couldn't quite deliver overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

raphael (838) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 11, 2012
Way citrus aroma--lemon, honey. almost no head, hazy orange yellow body. Feels right in the mouth--slight heft, a carbonated sizzle. Flavor also citrus with substance more tart than bitter, enough sweet to keep it from running away. alcohol well hidden.

mcberko (5362) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 10, 2012
On tap at Horse Brass Pub, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of strong citrus hops and tropical fruits (pineapple). Flavour of pineapple and mango, and citrus hops, unbalanced to the hops with not much malt, but delicious in its lack of balance. Excellent.

BillKismet (3295) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 4, 2012
Rich gold bar body, with a decent head. Sharp Chinook bitter-floral notes pique the olfactory senses, quite invigorating. So too the body is saturated with bracing Chinook bitterness that flaunts a winsome floral leafyness. Neither dry nor sweet. Well-balanced throughout. A fantastic bitter-forward hoppy IPA.
