COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tawny colored, this IPA is true to style. It is very generously hopped with Tomahawk, Centennial, Cascade, and Amarillo hops for and intensely hoppy aroma, flavor and bitterness with a balanced malty flavor.

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2011
Bronzed body with a very fluffy, egg white head. Pineapple hoppy nose that moves into the gustatory realm as well, with another dose of liquid pineapple hop together with some some citrus flares. Easy leafiness. Not bad.

raphael (883) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 16, 2011
A slightly over-aged brie smell, a swampiness with some hop bitter still cutting through, and oak. a golden head on yellow-amber clarity, very light in the mouth but still a good presence, raspy to the tongue. I taste oak, resin, caramel—the balance goes to the hops but still contained. Hoppy finish

bu11zeye (11943) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 13, 2011
(Draught) Pours a clear yellow body with a medium white head. Aroma of grapefruit, grain, pine, and caramel. Flavor of grapefruit, orange, earth, grain, and caramel malt with a dry, bitter finish.

joeneugs (3250) - Livermore, California, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Orange pours with a white head. The aroma is toffee, caramel and herbal, tropical hops. The flavor is very bitter without a whole lot of flavoring or aroma hops. Theres some pine and earth with some buttered toffee for balance. This was a nicely balanced and potently bitter IPA. Would have liked more aroma hops.

boFNjackson (4137) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 4, 2011
Bottle... Poured burnt orange/amber with a thick, beige-is head. Nose had some floral, perfumey hops. Lots of bitterness here with hop flavors of pine, pepper spice, and very resinous with a residual hop finish. Malt tones balanced but were definitely the illegitimate chile here.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - MAR 16, 2011
Bottle from Bier Stein. Hazy orange pour with a light white head. Nice mixture of hop aromas, with citrus and grass being most prominent but some nice pine notes as well as a modicum of caramel. Tastes malty initially, but then you get hit with a burst of citrus and pine hop notes that slowly recede back into the caramel. Pretty solid and underrated IPA in my opinion.

Hophazard (193) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 7, 2011
Sappy, sticky and resinous spruce and pine needle aromatics. A slightly orange golden pour that is clear and sits underneath a thick, creamy two-finger white head. Pine and northwest hops punch you in the mouth before you expect it. Finish is bitter and bone dry. Caramel traces make a brief appearance but this is about the hops. Very light but not in the least watery. Great ipa. Traces of orange peel as it warms.

scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - DEC 3, 2010
I smelled this and proclaimed Summit hops. I was wrong. Big juicy dank aroma, some pineapple and lemongrass. Clear gold, tall proud sticky white head. More gummy pineapple coupled with abrasive pine. Strongly bitter, with a long tingly finish. Medium bodied, no alcohol sting, just gooey hops.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - NOV 26, 2010
Bottle. Pours tawny orange with foamy white head. Full floral aroma, citrus, especially orange notes. Medium body, all over the tongue flavour with seville orange and tangerine. Lasting hop finish.

slitcher (266) - Freeport, Illinois, USA - NOV 20, 2010
12 ounce bottle. Pours a hazy orange with a thick rocky head. Aromas of grapfruit and pine. Huge citrus hop flavor with just the right amount of malt sweetness and a nice bitter finish; really good stuff.
