3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2010 Cloudy pour. Spicy aroma. Strawberries, apricots, peaches, and floral hops. Tart and peppery with a sweet caramel finish. Delicious. A hoppy reminder of Flemish sours.

Pours orange-amber with a small white head. Pleasant herbal, slightly spicy hop aroma brings to mind summit hops. Flavor is at first spicy and bitter, quickly followed by plenty of malt, ending with a lingering bitterness. Flavor comes and goes quickly, and the finish is a bit watery but retains some mildly caustic bitterness. The aroma and taste, while clearly sticking to the NW IPA style, are pretty unique. Well worth a try.

Bottle:   Really dirty pale caramel, moderate to large frothy off-white head, very nice lacing.   Seems like freshly squeezed hops on the nose.   A little sweet tea and citrus peel as well.   Citrusy hoppy start, not too bright, but strong.   Smooth, like its cask or something.   Carbonation is low, but the body is still nice.   There is a slight hint of unripened peach... yeah, its peach tea (subtle) with citrus and hop aspects.   Pretty tasty.   Slight astringency on the backside, but its minor.   Hoppy yet not biting, and has a slight fruity aspect to it too.   I can dig it!

the visual murkiness reminded me of Blue Dot, but the flatnes did not. still plenty ofhops swimming aorund in here, and an alleged high alchol content vibrating slightly behind the citrus bitter onslaught, a wisp of caramel as well

One liter swingtop. I bought this a while ago, should have drank it fresh. Oh well, such is life.
Massive, creamy head on a warm amber medium body. Fruit, caramel, grass, citrus, and alcohol in the nose. Maybe just a touch catty? Moderate carbonation. Lots of flavor, citrus, fruit, toffee, fading into pine.

Tap @ The Tin Shed. Pours orange with a tan ring. Nose is muted and hoppy. Taste is nice, rich citrus, and light bitterness. Pretty decent IPA.

Served in a tulip...poured amber orange with a nice billowing white head. Some faint hoppy notes in the aroma. Nice hops upfront with pine and grapefruit both noticeable...following it became a bit flat and watery although not unpleasant by any means. Some malty notes come through in there somewhere, but this one really more of the West Coast take on the style with hops being more front and center. Finish is dry and lingering. Overall a pretty nice beer, but not the hop bomb I was looking for.

swingtop bottle. tall patchy off-white head. amber body. soft yeast-driven aroma with fruity hop undertones: pillowy, dusty, minerallic mandarin orange and dried egg shell-scented pineapple. snappy and bitter pine resin hop flavor fades to caramel, maple and honey sweetness in the finish with a soft pineapple accent.

Grapefruit/citrus aroma. pours a murky brown orange with huge foamy head. Really heavy on the citrus, overpowering really, the finish ends up being quite tart. The hops are still there. A strange one, but I didnít mind it.
