COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pale orange, fruity hoppy and strong. A bold, unapologetically hoppy northwest-style IPA. Brewed with Pale, Munich and Crystal malts with a portion of sugar. Bittered and finished with Chinook, Centennial and whole flower Cascade hops all over the place.

mcberko (6726) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 25, 2012
22 oz. bottle, pours a clear dark copper with a medium white head. Aroma of truckloads of piney and resinous hops, mandarin oranges and other tropical fruits (mango and pineapple), and caramel malts. Flavour of orange peel, some mango, resinous hops, and caramel malt backing. Medium astringency from the orange peel notes, with quite a well-balanced body, though pronouncedly hoppy. Very enjoyable IPA.

NachlamSie (2789) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 23, 2012
Pint at the brewery. Pours a hazy orange with a very nice, lasting head. This is a no-nonsense PNW IPA. The nose is crazy hoppy with fresh grapefruit and evergeen. I haven’t had a pure, straight up IPA like this in a while. Man, is it good. The flavor is clean and satisfyingly bitter. Fresh, sharp grapefruit and pine notes bombard my palate. Finish is lovely. This will take care of any IPA craving I might have.

Zeswaft (1381) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 10, 2012
On tap at Tangletown. Awesome mango, citrus atoma. Quite pungent. Flavor is a little disappointing for the aroma. Quite boozy, would have expected a double ipa. Citrus hops and bitterness. Average appearance and palate.

dwyerpg (4579) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 17, 2011
Wonderful fresh hop aroma. Floral and citrus together. An excellent beer. Good hops but not real overpowering, If anything, this could have just a tad more strength.

turboespresso (256) - Port Moody, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 13, 2011
On tap. Cloudy copper-gold with small ring. Little lace. Mild to medium carbonation. Quite cloudy and hazy. Aroma is a little fruity with hint of citric hops. Body is on the lean side. Taste of slight malt sweetness with hint of citrus and straightforward bitterness. Lingering bitter aftertaste. Quite good but not quite great. Goes well with spicy food.

19Ei8hty (1171) - Washington, USA - AUG 24, 2010
Bright amber body with copper-orange hues. Crisp, biting, floral hops on the nose with some light grassy notes. Body is a little thin and watery sporting a lightly toasted caramel maltiness. Lightly sweet finish.
