Draft. Pours orange with a thin off white head. Fruity hoppy aroma, with light pine and sweet caramel malts. The flavor has fruity and piney hops and a light malty sweetness. Pretty good.

Another macho IPA brewed in the American Northwest. I had to force myself to drink through this one, and get to some Guinness.

Sampled on tap at IIPA fest at Saraveza, pours cloudy orange / yellow with a small lasting head. Aroma of heavy caramel malts, pine and citrus. Flavour is malty and with citrus hops. Well-balanced. Beautiful.

Sampled on tap for IIPA fest @ Saraveza, pours hazy golden orange with a white head. Aroma of resinous hops, grass and caramel. Flavour of resinous, leafy hops, an earthy tone, citrus and some caramel backing. Extremely well-made - delicious.

Subdued citrus aroma. Flavor is lots of sweetness, assertive grapefruitiness, but disappointingly obvious prescence of alcohol for 8.7%. This beer definitely lingers. First the alcohol, then the sweetness, then the bitterness leaves the palate. Good marks for serving it to me in a pint and at happy hour prices.

Snifter at Tangletown. Huge, thick pillow head. Hazy deep amber pour. Smooth feel with some sour-sweet-malt to balance with a not too huge hopping. Tasty, smooth middle of the road Imp Ipa.

On tap at Brouwer’s Hopfest ’09. Pours an orange-copper with a small head. The aroma has a ton of citrus hops (some sweet mandarin and lots of grapefruit). Not much of a caramel malt counter - this one is definitely hop-forward, and even a bit boozy... but it has a full mouthfeel, and is really tasty. Good work by the guys at Elysian.
