Bottle. Pours an amber color with a moderate white head. Extremely hoppy in the nose, which makes for a great introduction to an IPA. Taste is very bitter and hoppy, just like an IPA should be. Great brew.

22oz bomber into a pint glass.
Pours a slightly hazy medium copper with a thick off-white head. Great head retention.
Has a very citrusy hop aroma along with a little bit of dankness. A little bit of caramel and biscuit malt as well.
Taste is a great balance between malt and hops. Great earthy citrus quickly followed by biscuit and toasted malt. No one flavor really overpowers the other and the balance is really outstanding. Bitterness is high and it leads to a crisp, clean finish. Nice full mouthfeel.
I am really impressed by this beer. It is not a humungous hop bomb but more of a balanced IPA. Would like to have again sometime.

Had this at the restaurant in Ashland. The aroma had a dank smell to it at first, but the first sip wiped all that away! Taste was hoppy, sharp and in your face. Just how an IPA should be!

Not a bad ipa at least this batch very bitter on back of tongue not to much for a hop head but probably for others. Pretty pleasant good head

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2014 On tap at Caldera brewery in Ashland, OR. Aroma was initially dishwater-like, but then quickly turned to pungent hoppiness. Stingingly bitter taste made the mouthfeel hard to discern. Taste was too bitter, though I could tell that there was a decent malt backbone somewhere in there. I kind of made it sound bad, but it was a decent IPA. I do prefer the sweetness of a DIPA though.

Draught. Orange with white head with coating lacing. Full fruity aroma. Flavour is midway between an IPA and a Cape Ale. Very good and satisfying. Seek this out.

750 ml - Good India Pale Ale, had the required hoppy nose and malt. Good but not remarkable.

Malty, hoppy, tasty. Lots of toffee, caramel and chalky cocoa in the malts. Rich, green and earthy hops. Lots of hop flavors; not biting or bitter. Light grass, flowers and sappy pine. Balanced. Stylistically, not in line with your typical IPA, but it’s still a delicious beer.
