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.

Had this at a pub and a beer festival. Both tastings were awesome. Went down very easy and full burst of hops flavor. One of my faves.

Clear Orange, much more of a citrus flavor and a cleaner palate. Some Woodsy flavor at the finish. Extremely easy to drink, so beware.

This was a very hoppy IPA, and I was surprised to find it at Magoo's in T-Town. Oh well. The bartender was feeding me free shots of Crown Royal and I was having a good ol' time. Anyways this was hopped to the core and finished with more hops. It smelled like hops and I was diggin' it. A creamy head with a golden color that was quite clear. I would love to have it again.

One of the premier Northwest IPA's. Nicely balanced compared to some IPA's with an appropriate level of bitterness. Wonderful on tap at the brewery!

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2005 Cloudy tan-copper; rousing hop aroma - cedar, grapefruit, orange. Creamy start, wonderfully smooth hoppiness flows over the palate. High woody factor, but no earth, pointing to all US hops and minimal quantities of crystal malts. Biscuits, wood, grapefruit collide. Luscious, and finishing with a lot of bitterness.
