This beer wasn’t too bad. Pours out orange with a decent white head. Smell is a bit hoppy no citrus that I’m used to in these west coast IPA’s. Taste is clean and smooth with a nice punch of hops but not over the top at all. I will say that the slight buttery taste from the diacytel took away from it a bit. Still a good beer.

Bottle which Garrett brought to my house last night. Thanks man. Pours out a orange color with a thick white head on it. Smell is slightly hoppy, with a touch of a butter note. Taste was smooth and rich, somewhat hoppy, but had a bit of diacytel in it. Not bad by any means, but I was expecting a PNW IPA, not an English style IPA. Id like to get a bottle that didnt have diacytel in it though.

Great Hop Flavor start to finish. One of my favorites at the local pub. Medium body, nice texture.

Poured a clear golden color with a thin off-white head. The aroma was semi-sweet with malt and a mix of sweaty hops. The flavor was a mix of piney hops and sweet malt. Mild bitterness and a semi-dry finish. Medium bodied.

22 oz bottle shared with padrefan98. Aroams of citrus including pineapple off this hazy orange brew with a huge fluffy head that lasted forever. In fact, when I was done with the beer, there was still head in the glass. Can I get a spoon please.... Flavors were more hops with some grapefruit citrus taking the forefront. Pretty tasty.

22 oz bottle thanks to dgarth. Pours a golden cloudy orange with a huge head that lasted the whole time. Good hop presence with tastes of grapefruit and pine. Very good.

Top tier brewery’s flagship brew. I especially enjoy the fact that it is so readily accessable

greenhorn1 (850) - Mission Viejo, California, USA - APR 6, 2007
Bomber. Pours a clear golden orange color with a small head. Grapefruit and pine notes can be found in the aroma and flavor. There is something else strange about this beer...is it vanilla? A bit watery mouthfeel. I prefer my west coast IPA’s to make a hop statement, which this one is lacking. Not a bad beer, just not a good representation of a good west coast IPA.

igneous1 (1528) - Davenport, Iowa, USA - MAR 23, 2007
nice gold/orange color, head is white, thin. aroma is of lemony citrus and earthy grainy hops. Flavor is quite balanced between the hops and malts with a nice bitterness coming through in the finish. In the end, I prefer more of a hop presence in my IPA. Pretty good, but nothing special.
