Huge pink grapefruit nose. Medium body, copper in color. Major grapefruit flavors outweight the malt bodies. Good, crisp, bitter IPA.

Pours a light amber color. Big citrusy hop aroma. Big a nd blanced malt to hop flavor. Rather citrusy and a dry mouthfeel. Some hints of toasted malts. A pretty solid IPA.

Pours a light coppery color with a small white head. Smell can best be described as hops and faint pine needles. Tastes hoppy with a slight detection of pine needles and carbonation. Has a nice bite to it. An above average IPA.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Remarkably clear golden appearance. Mild honey tea aroma with lemon and grapefruit citrus. Fairly moderate palate sweet honey-ish flavor at first to grapefruit bitterness especially noticeable in the aftertaste. A reliable IPA that doesnít challenge the greats of its style but would certainly challenge the palate of newbies.

UPDATED: JUN 24, 2009 Still and clear orange, but with an observable foam topping. Orange-soap aroma. But then comes the teeth-grinding hop crunch. Orangey, grassy and rindy. Pretty damn good. <<Draft at Humpyís June 2009 -- still pretty damn good .. copper, laced, creamsicley .. acidic ... nice. >>

Yet another northwest American IPA. I guess Iím a sucker for this style, though, since I continue to rate these beers higher than raters whose opinions I trust more than my own. Cloudy orange with a good white head and decent lacing. Lots of bitterness, lots of grapefruit hops, decent malt for balance. Nothing remarkable, simple rather than complex, but immensely pleasant. I guess the American IPA and the Willamette hops just work for me.
