I donít get much on the nose. Perhaps some graininess. A bit of red in there. Nice hop flavor makes up for the weak nose. Would drink again.

Draft at the lcw. Pours a murky dark amber with a dense and creamy tan head that doesnít stick around. Leaves tons of lace. Big fresh sweet grapefruit nose. Creamy medium body, almost thick. Soft carb. Grapefruit foremost on the mid palate. Some caramel under, washing out into a sharp blood orange finish.

Tap @ Beveridge Place: Orange color with a white head, the nose is big on this. Lots of sticky sweet hops; orange, grapefruit and more. The maltiness is profound AND...itís quite balanced, which all good imperial IPAs should be. Dose you full of IBUs without even having to choke it down. Very clean and refreshing with quite a strong body.

riversideAK (6140) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - MAY 27, 2009
Hazy amber pour with a nice foamy head and sticky lace. Really nice aroma of pine, grapefruit, floral hops. A pungent hop nose for sure. Flavors of tropical fruit, pineapple, grapefruit, with a strong resiny finish. Malt lends a dryness in the form of biscuit, and a soft sweetness that compliments the hops. Really nice hop bomb of a beer. Citrus and punch linger, lots of resins.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 24, 2008
On tap at Elliott Bay Brew Pub in West Seattle, WA--Bright citrus floral hops. Great nose! Orange copper body with lots of legs. Wispy white head. Great malt balance with a touch of wheat. Simcoe and Amarillo hops rule! Fantastic beer. Strong bitter finish. I predict this beer wins best IIPA at GABF.

8/23/08 From cask at the Seattle AHA rally. Aroma is strong; primarily of sweet cascade. Appearance is hazy yellow with a well maintained white head. Flavor is very well balanced, slightly starchy, and all good. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a low carb texture; some resin. Overall, excellent.
