From the name, I expected more hops. Much more of a citrus based beer than anything else. Golden coloring, with a citrus nose. Flavor is slightly bitter, with some malt flavoring for balance. Citrus again, and then small amount of hop flavoring. Not their best, but their worst is still good.

An APA? I could’ve sworn I was drinking an IPA. Anyway, this IPA, or APA, pours a cloudy orange color with a medium white head. The aroma is the most attractive thing about this beer. A nice blend of caramel sweetness and citrussy hops in the nose. At first a smooth sweet maltiness hits but it’s quickly consumed by the overbearing harsh hops. I’m not one to complain about hops too often, but in this case I’ll make an exception. The finish is a strong hop bitterness that leaves a lingering reminder long after (about 10 minutes, kind of impressive) the last sip.

Aroma: strong sweet hops, leaves, honey, and grains--smells very fresh
Appearance: golden yellow, bubbly, white head, lacing
Flavor: strong sweet hops, slight yeasty flavor, leaves, sour milk, and a mustiness
Palate: smooth but dry and bubbly, some watery-type qualities

Perkeo (322) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 14, 2004
Newly bottled 22oz.: Pale reddish brown beer, aromas of hay and and freshly cut spruce boughs. Smooth, all most lager-like on the palate, with a slight hint of roast and a dryness to it, good cleansing bitterness, fairly high. Very clean amalgam of citrus, floral, herbal and caramel. Classy, "premium" tasting brew.

Yes it’s hoppy but there is some earthiness to accompany it. The citrus flavors are there and it is pretty bitter but the balance is nice. Good beer.

Hab40oz (242) - Grants Pass, Oregon, USA - MAY 8, 2004
wonderfully hoppy aroma mixed with a rich hoppy smooth taste that just makes you want to drink too you fall over. I love this beer, not too bitter, full of flavor, a real winner.

Draught @ PR. Pours light amber/golden. Great cirrus fresh aroma. Light malts. I enjoyed it more when it was cold, and less when it warmed up. (?) Great Brew!!

At the brewery... and not far from the hop growing region of WA, which explains the high, dry hopped taste. Not overpowering and easy to drink.

porterdude (170) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - NOV 11, 2005
On tap. Poured a light copper color with an ever-lasting thin white head. A decent bouquet of citrusy hops and some grassy notes. The taste was very hoppy, not balanced at all. This was, however a rather drinkable beer amd what malt flavor there was must have been hidden under a steep amount of Amarillo hops. Pretty full mouth feel.

This beer smells better than it tastes, unfortunately. It has a very strong citrusy aroma, but the taste is a bit too sharp for my taste. Not enough balance in the flavor to keep me interested. It was a decent beer, but for the money I know I can do better.
