Not made anymore is what I hear. Too bad because I really like this stuff. True, it is just another NW IPA, not too different from the rest, but but still it was good stuff. Golden orange appearance. The aroma was of fresh hopped peach and pine. The flavor was biting bitter and a grapefruit sourness.

Draft @ McCormick&Schmicks:Fruity nose. Clear golden orange color.Little head. Carmel/toffee malt with some citrus hop flavor. Finishes with a lite linguring bitterness, pretty clean otherwise. Not bad, but didn't wow me either

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 6, 2003
Pours a very nice red with little head. Nose is fruity with some hops. Floral, fruity flavor with hops that build up as you drink. A pretty mellow IPA.

Creamy hop profile, subtle and sweet, clean and fresh. A smooth ipa with a pleasant feeling body.

Orange tint to a golden body with a fairly small off-white head. Subtle hoppy aroma, which is almost barren of malt or any other characteristics. The taste is mostly piney from the hops, while some citrus hoppiness is noticeable. The hop bitterness lingers for quite a while after you have the last sip. The beer's taste was very balanced with hops and malt throughout the taste and palate. Not as hoppy as I had expected for a West Coast brewery, but it was pretty good anyways. I thought this was more of an APA more than an IPA, but maybe it was just this keg!? I had this on tap at the Falling Rock Tap House on 11-August-2003 in Denver, Colorado.

drismyhero (815) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - AUG 8, 2003
A very solid IPA, in the same category as Stone and LaConner where the flavor of the hops is just as strong or stronger than the IBUs. Nice initial citrus flavor and a fairly palatable floweriness provides this beer with a very solid flavor and body. Nicely done.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAY 25, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 27, 2004 Where's the hops? I understand this brewery is employee owned. Well, kick down and add a few my friends.
