thedm (4971) - Fort Wayne, USA - AUG 5, 2007
This draft brew from the Oregon Brewers festival poured a large sized head of foamy fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a transparent softly carbonated golden brown colored body. The mild aroma was hoppy and dirty sock. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of cascade hops and orange peel. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

UPDATED: MAY 16, 2008 draft @ the taphouse grill - loved the warning from the barkeep that this was 7.5%...haha...comes clear and dark orange; full aromas of hops and mild mix of malts; goes down very smooth with that slight dry aftertaste...........5/16/08 update: ymmm, just nice to have again at the brewery and slightly more tasty than I remember

Amber with an average head with good lacing. Nutty malt with orange and pine - very nice bitterness that lingers on the back of the tongue. A very nice IPA that I found enjoyable.

On draft at the Diamond Knot Brewery back on 06Jul2007. This double IPA (or xIPA as DK calls it) is good stuff. Nice darker amber color with a creamy head. Good malt sweetness that gets covered by a hop flavor that is very strong but not killer bitter (is there such a thing?). I really like this beer. It has such a creamy body and just had a great hop finish. Nice piny, citrus, herb flavors in the hops. I had 4 of these after I rated it.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 5, 2007
Amber with red hints and a frothy head. Sheet lacing. Musty aroma of citrus and bitterness. A bit of roast and a hint of woodiness. Oranges and malts being toast and roast. Bitter, malty finish.

bb (6860) - Alamo, California, USA - APR 27, 2007
Draft. Rich amber beer with a nice off-white head. Fruity, grapefruit aroma. Nice grapefruit and slight tropical fruit flavor with pine and a bit of caramel. Lingering pine and grapefruit. Slightly creamy mouthfeel, medium/full bodied.

DrunkenWeasel (224) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 27, 2007
A very nice light amber with a medium white head quite pleasent looking. Smells of a rich hoppy aroma that is mostly piney could have done with some more levels of hop. The taste is more complex with a nice hint of malt to the hops but a slight yeasty twang at the end detracts from it. Otherwise really good.

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - APR 15, 2007
Big ol thick hop juicer. Citrus and pine flavors blend through a murkey orange body wth a thin white head. Resiny and heavy on the palate, sticking to every taste bud. A good beer for a really spicy dish, this thing could rid the palate of any flavor.

CapFlu (4616) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 8, 2007
(Draught) Sampled at Brouwer’s in Seattle. Lasting tan head with a lightly carbonated deep orange body. Nose of creamed vanilla, sweet candy cane malt and strong hops. Smooth, malty, wooden and tart oranges. Toasted malt finish. Very good.
