3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I poured this into a tulip, inhaling the aroma of toast and pine as soon as the can was cracked. The amber pour is bitter, sticky and full of flavor...also is obviously quite unfiltered. Tipping the glass to my lips leaves a heavy cream-colored lace, and with every pull leaves a set of consistent rings to mark my journey through the brew.
The bitter is angry, but not evil, and gives me that jaw pop that is so familiar to those who love hops and other various bitter things. The grapefruit is more apparent the warmer this gets, and I am finding a new go-to in this beer. The medium body and balanced carbonation has got me won, and I will be happy to recommend this one to friends that enjoy a solid IPA!

Not feeling this one. Didnít taste super fresh, or more than english ipa type hoppy. Well balanced? Sure. But not really what I want in an IPA. Subpar for the style, at least the sample i had (94 on RB?!). "

Can from The Beer Junction, Seattle
Hazy amber color. The aroma is quite fruity and nice, the flavor is caramelly and a bit cloying.

Can in Seattle. Pours gold with a white head. Nice funky light veg, over ripe fruit, pine aroma. Medium body, medium carbonation. Nice and juicy, with tangerine, pine, lemon, pineapple, light wood, grapefruit... Nice balance, lots going on. Tasty.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Canned 17 July 2014. Pouring a clear amber with a dense, off white head with excellent retention and minimal lacing, this looks solid. The nose is great. Bright, pungent and dank hops with grapefruit, grapefruit pith, pine, weed, a little chalk and a little grass. A little caramel is present. The palate opens with a moderate bitterness, plenty dank with a pronounced weed character. A little grassy, which distracts from the wonderful bitterness and moderate hop flavor thatís comprised of grapefruit, pine and a little melon. The mid palate is smooth and creamy with a little sweetness before a long, clean ,bitter finish with flavors of grapefruit and west take over. A little candied melon is present as well. Medium light in body with moderate carbonation, this tastes solid. Definitely worthy, a great NW IPA.

16 oz can (excellent) picked up at The Bier Stein. Pours a hazy orange with a white head. Got a few floaties in there. Aromas of mango, orange, maybe a touch of onion. Mostly bitter flavor. Maybe a bit undercarbed. Get orange rind, more citrus bitterness. Decent, middle of road ipa.

Pours golden with a gorgeous orange hue and decent hop sediment. Aroma brings juicy oranges and some light sweet malts. Flavor brings drier orange citrus with some nice bitter dry zest on the backend.

Very frothy thick white head. Dark golden hue, lots of bubbles on tap. Smells like bananas and grapefruit. Bitter all the way through. Delicious
