On tap at Fat Headís Portland, pours a clear golden copper with a small white head. Aroma is fairly sweet, with notes of citrus hops, caramel bready malt and residual sweetness. Flavour is well-balanced, with lots of piney hops, some resin and sweet caramel bready malt. Fairly abrasive but in a good way. Very nice hop monster.

On tap @ Fat Headís PDX. Pours clear medium copper with thin lacy white head. Aroma is light caramel malt; followed by dank juicy hops, grapefruit and grass standout. Taste is sweet caramel malt, thick coating mouthfeel; dank, bitter hops; mango, pine, and resin notes standout. Really nice IPA, I liked this a bit more than Semper FIPA.

Serving: from tap at Fat Headís Brewery Aroma: heavy pine hop. Appearance: very small, off-white, initial head with no lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Clear, dark-amber body. Taste: moderately bitter, citrusy initial flavor and finish with average duration. Palate: medium body, syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Overall: very good. Nice balance.

Draft at Chuckís CD. Amber-tinted gold, small foam. At first glance this has more malt-amber, biscuity than Iíd usually like but juicy, strong balancing hops rise quickly. Alc, metallic bitter, full and finishes very crisp. I dig it.

Rating #1669 - #CBC2015 Beer 54 - Day 4 - On tap at Fat Head Portland w/ Ferris. Clear golden amber pour with a weak, white head that bubbles away to a ring. Aroma is strong with mango, peach tangerine, light pine Taste is more of the same, dry hops and doughy malts dominating the flavour, with a dose of mango punchy sweetness sure to last. Lovely

Crowler from chucks hop shop. Wow what a hop bomb. Nice bouquet of hop notes. Pours a great golden color. Really noticeable mango, passion fruit and melon. Nice harsh hops on the backend. Itís a good really balanced and clean IPA.

craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 11, 2016
Draft at Chuckís CD. Mostly clear amber pour, decent fizzy white head. Nose and flavor are biiig and hoppy, with candied orange, tangy citrus, kumquat, toasted biscuit malt balance, light boozy heat. Very hoppy and decidedly bitter, but smooth and far from astringent. Serious stuff.
