A clear, pale yellowish golden beer with a dense, finger-thick white head leaving lacings. Chalky, yeasty nose with pine cones, resins and orange zest. A faint malty touch in the flavor, it’s quite dry on the palate, with a soft carbonation. Medium body. Bitter, citrusy flavor with some orange juice and resins. Lasting bitter, grassy and orangey finish. Pleasant this one, although the aroma wasn’t impressive in any way. 141219

Pours slightly hazy golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, orange, citrus and grape. Taste is medium sweet and medium to heavy bitter with a long orange and citrus finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

On draft. Faint pineapple aroma. Taste is of pineapple and roasted nuts, and is more bitter than it sounds like it might be. Nice, but kind if lighter than it is big.

UPDATED: NOV 2, 2014 Pours a clear light copper gold medium head Aroma is citrus tangerines and floral notes. Taste is a bit stronger than the aroma with good pine hop bitterness and a nice malt backbone with some spice notes aswel. Actually pretty good. Is better than I was expecting.

Pours amber with a large head. Nose shows restrained herbal, peppery and floral hops. Some light sweet clean malt. Piny, grapefruity hops as flavours. Some soft malt again.

22oz bomber pours up with a clear copper body that has gold hues and supports a tall head of light tan colored foam. The aroma offers up a fruity mix of grapefruit and tangelo as well as spicy garlic with herbal and mild malty notes showing up at the end of the draw. The taste starts kind of soft and smooth for a moment before grapefruit, clementine and tangerine citrus hop bitterness rushes to the surface ringed thinly by citrus hop flavor. It gets a bit dank and spicy to midway amid the citrusy notes adding a resiny facet to the experience. Darn nice IPA with pleasing balance and depth.

fletchfighters (1133) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2014
Bomber into a tulip Hazy light orange amber color, bright white head. Good lacing and body to head. Nose is mostly citrus. Mixture of bright and dank citrus. Not a lot of malt body in the nose. Highly bitter and dank taste. Lots of citrus. Very lean, oily and full of resin. Dry finish. One dimensional but tasty

jazz88 (2564) - San Francisco, California, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Bottle. A light golden color with a white head. A light pine and citrus aroma with smooth flavor, light earthiness, little bitterness at the front with a nice dry finish. This beer is smooth and easy to drink and quite enjoyable. There is a nice hop profile.

Amber color, moderate head, decent lace/retention. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, citrus, caramel. Low bitterness, quite drinkable with typical PNW flavors.
