On tap at Brouwer’s Cafe, and well worth the trip from downtown on my final night in Seattle. Pours pale coppery orange with no head. No lacing - a lighter apple cider look. Aroma is pretty close to heaven; fresh fruit, pine, citrus in a lovely succulent blend. Taste has sweet fruit, pine needles, bitter citrus. A hint of malt. A fruity, lightish, super smooth blend. Gets more bitter thru the glass. Finishes bittersweet about medium length. A wonderful easy drinker.

Pour is brassy in color and slightly hazy. Flavor is clean and extremely balanced. This is a great beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On cask at Pizza Paradiso in Alexandria it is a clear gold color with a slight head . The aroma is citrus and the taste is a slight tinny flavor that evolves into a taste of bitter orange.

I said shazam, this is one of the most unique IPAs I’ve ever had. Pours a cloudy orange hue with a thin white head. The aroma wafts of a true citrusy IPA, the taste is deliciously complex, blending that simcoe and amarillo hop with pure intentions. Enjoy.

32oz growler from Dominion W&B, also a draft goblet at Spacebar. Gold with moderate white head. This is a very good IPA, with a great balance of pine,floral, and citrus hop aromas and flavor. No WC IPA slap in the face, just great taste. Very drinkable.

Growler from Stout Brothers. Bright golden pour with a frothy white head. Big juicy grapefruit aroma, bits of caramel, pine, resin. Flavors were juicy citrus, grapefruit, bittersweet finish. Super balanced, tasty, refreshing. What else could you ask for. First from Alpine. Nelson on deck.

Wonderful stuff. Lots of pine and big citrus. Pours golden with good head. Bitter finish. Grass and decent sweetened malt backbone. Great to see this stuff here in DC area. Tap at Galaxy Hut.

Draft pour pint at Special Brews. Pours a clear bright golden color with a fizzy head. I was a little surprised to see how highly rated the IPA’s from these guys are, but after trying them, I can see why. This one has an explosion of sweet juicy grapefruit aroma. Very nice hoppy citrus flavor, with a juicy fruit finish. Damn, this stuff is good. Loved it.

Pours an amber color with a thick foam head that dissipates and laces my glass. The aroma is of pine, floral hops, citrus, grassy, and had a good malt presence. The flavor is of booze, crisp semi sweet malts, it has a medium bitterness that lingers, and some earthy herbal flavor too. Overall a good IPA, glad to have enjoyed it.
