On tap at Capital Hill Brewery.
Copper-orange color. Strong hop aroma. A typical Northwest IPA. It is all about the Northwest hops. Its only failing is the lack of malt characteristic I look for in an IPA. This with a Indian curry would be great!

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Poured a clear medium orange color. Head was thick, creamy, and off white with good retention and lacing. The aroma was not as floral or citrusy as I had expected for a left coast IPA, but was ample. There was also a modest malty caramel note. Slightly sweet on the tongue with only mild hop bitterness. Again, not what I had expected. The malt-hop balance was equal with biscuity malt and light citrusy hop flavors. Overall, a non-offensive IPA that was very easy to drink.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 10, 2007 Re-rated from bottle Nov. 2007. Very nice pour with long-lasting, lace-leaving head. Straightforward and relatively balanced. Not a hop-assault and not a very complex IPA. Some white pepper notes. Had also sampled at a Great Canadian Beer festival. Did not take detailed notes and only indicated that it was an excellent IPA but for more reliable tasting notes will have to try it again, in a longer draught from the bottle or tap.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Elysian Fields in Seattle. Pours golden with a retentive white head. Aroma of skunk (yes, my wife confirmed), faint citrus, and pale malts. Flavor of pale malts and grapefruit with a dry and grassy bitter finish.
The beer is decent, but nothing really grabbed my attention.

Deep copper orange color with a frothy white head. Bright crisp and fruity flavor that is evident in nose. Bitter finish that lingered. Itís a wonder why this beer is not more renowned globally.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a deep gold with orange highlights and a medium-sized white head that laces the glass. The aroma is big with grapefruit, soft fruit, and sweet malts. The flavor is a great balance between citrusy and piney hops and lots of crystal malt and sugar. The finish is somewhat dry with an aftertaste of citrus and malts. The mouthfeel is a tad over-carbonated. Otherwise, it is creamy and medium in body. Overall, a very decent IPA. Their menu (at the Tangletown pub) indicated that their beers (Elysian) had defeated Dogfish Headís in their informal in-pub tasting competition (90 Minute IPA must have been the competitor). This week they were pitting this brew against Victoryís Hop Devil. I personally donít think this brew is quite as good as either of those, but it is pretty tasty.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught sample at brewery. Great fresh grassy hops with apricots and resin. Mild bitter fruity malts. Fresh! Dull golden amber clear with creamy lacing off-white head. Medium-heavy watery body with medium carbonation. Big fresh hops flavor. Grassy with grapefruit and big bitter finish. Sweet sugary malt and light grain. Big bitter finish with medium chalky bitter after. Nice big IPA but not overly harsh.

mellow orange flavor, good aftertaste, not very hoppy, little to no head and dull brown appearance, aroma is a great piney smell. Worth the price.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
A nice golden orange color with a good looking white head. Aroma is a woody spice smell. A slight malt flavor with a bit of hops. Not a bad beer but not great.
