Drank from a growler at the 2004 RBSG. Golden, slightly hazy. Another great IPA that’s more than just hop juice. Brandy and wholesomeness, some nice malts here. Yeasty qualities that I wouldn’t have imagined working out in an IPA, but they compliment the hops quite well. Excellently done and deserving of being one of the top beers on the site.

Amber with a creamy white head and nice spotty lacing. Strong earthy hops. Citrus with a nice malt backing. Musky earthiness for the hops in the flavors. Some bitter and citrus. Malty finish with a very nice dose of hops.

I need to give a special thanks to Jagerqueen for bringing the growler of this amazing beer to the RBSG ’04. I consider myself a hop head and have been aware of this beer for a long time, and it was worth the wait. Pretty golden beer with a fluffy white head and a simply amazing aroma. The hops smelled very fresh with floral and pine notes. Intricate hop flavors of orange and grapefruit citrus, but mellowed to almost take all the harshness out. Well balanced, delicious beer. I love this beer, and if I ever get near it again, I’ll make the special trip.

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2005 RBSG 04. Pours a nice orange color with a white head. Aroma is fulll of floral hops, very appealing. Tsate almost starts sweet but the bitterness quickly takes over to add a great hopped taste, great for us hop lovers.

Tap@The College Inn, Seattle. Seattle seems to be the place for good IPA’s. This is a cracker of a beer. Full flavoured. Caramelly malts, lightly buttery, nice and soft. Lots of hops, lychee, piney hops. Seems like the combo of caramel and lychee wouldn’t work, but it certainly does in this beer. This is the real deal. Bitter finish.

Diamond Knot Brewery go there if you can. A great medium bodied IPA. Grapefruit aroma, nice mellow head on this beer, its there all the way through but stays out of your way. This is a real drinking beer not a sipper and I am glade to see a beer such as this is appreciated by the big beer lovers of this site.

Aroma yeah! Big sweet grapefruit aroma. Cloudy, orange in color, small medium bubbled but ever lasting head good lacing. Big hop flavor but far from over done there is malt here. Really this is just a prefect northwestern style IPA. A special beer or a session beer its ether one. One of the very best

On tap at the brew pub. Cloudy golden color with a cloud like white head. Citrus and hops in the nose. Smooth on the palate with strong grapefruit flavor. Not as bitter as I would have expected. But, just an easy drinking, enjoyable beer.

Had on tap at the brewpub in Mukilteo - great place. Nectarine colored appearance - nice, thick and cloudy. Slight spruce aroma - little to no head - but leaves a tad bit of lacing. Solid citrus, grapefruity flavor - not overwhelming or tongue numbing though. Very solid IPA - session worthy.
