COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Enter, if you will, all the glorious aromatic complexity of the hop. This big, bold IPA’s intense multi-hop kick gets a subtle dose of restraint from select Crystal and Carastan malts. For discriminating hop heads.

Deep copper color...slightly opaque. Fluffy head. Floral hop aroma. Fresh flavor of hops upfront, with hints of citrus...unusually smooth mouthfeel for an IPA. Hop bite kicks in throughout the back. Finish is light, with noticeable citrus undertones. A very balanced brew...nice hop flavor without the overpowering nature of most IPAs.

Tap at Porter’s Pub, UCSD. Clear dark amber, with a small white head. Sweet and biter aroma, of malt, pine, hops. Taste starts sweet, of malt and caramel, then picks up more pine hops bitterness. Lingering caramel and hops flavors. A little strange, but tasty.

jb43 (1650) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAR 20, 2009
(Bottle). Pours a light red/orange color. Head is yellowish/white. Light to moderate head lacing. Aroma of hops. Strong taste of hops and citrus, with a finish that is somewhat bitter. Soft carbonation.

crondonik (32) - California, USA - MAR 20, 2009
Bottled. For a mass produced micro it has good bitterness and malt sweetness. At the same time it is an average IPA with not too much of anything other than malt. The 6.8% alchy surprised me but that was about it.

BeerNeedy (126) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - MAR 11, 2009
12 oz bottle. Mildly fecund aroma of pine and hops. Pours a deep copper with a full one inch white head. Flavor is bold and yet smooth with definite hoppiness. Overall a pretty decent IPA.

snakeoilpete (324) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 9, 2009
Bottle. Pours clear dark orange amber with a nice foamy off-white head. Mostly citrus hops in the nose, some caramel malts as well. Very well-balanced flavor of grapefruit, caramel, and a little pine. Mouthfeel is surprisingly thick and sticky.

zapprentice (314) - East Setauket, New York, USA - MAR 1, 2009
A decent, regularly available IPA. Subtle flavors on the nose, maybe some citrus fruits. Not much to the hop flavor, run of the mill.

Nebulor (109) - , California, USA - FEB 24, 2009
Lots of caramel, and some pine and grapefruit aromas. Poured an amber color with a copper hue and a sticky off white head. A lot of caramel with sweet English Tea and has some grapfruit and alcohol taste throughout. Medium bodied, resinous, with lively soft carbonation. Decent for a session starter or an inline session beer, for me.

Nice, classic northwest IPA. Sweet aroma with a rich, creamy hop flavor. Dry, bitter finish.

captaincass (45) - Everson, Washington, USA - FEB 18, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 27, 2009 smells pretty carmelly and grapefruity from the hops. pours pretty dark for an ipa. tastes a little too much malt but has a nice hoppy finish.
