2008-09-01. Orange amber boy with a small white head and lacing. (3+) Aroma is on the modest side, pleasant hops, resin and a touch of citrus (7+). Flavour is hop forward, pleasant bitterness takes on just a touch of astringent citrus sed prior to a pleasant tangerine like citrus note. Average palate. Pretty solid IPA. Not overly assertive but rather nice. 7/4/8/3/16 - 3.8 On tap at Steamers, Ketchikan

2008-09-06. Crisp orange body with a smallish white head and lacings is actually less hazy than the draft sample. (3+) Big hoppy aroma of resin and orange citrus (8+) carries over to the flavour where rich green hops strike a keen balance between assertive resin and pervasive sweet citrus notes. (8+) Average palate is lightly carbonated, but excellent for a cask. (3+) Wow! Probably my favorite beer of my Alaska trip so far. 8/3/8+/3/18 - 4.0 On cask at the brewpub.

On tap on Independence Day ’08 at Rays Waterfront in Seward, Ak. Nice burnt orange color with lasting white head and average aroma. Flavor is great, floral, and easy to drink Not too heavy and the hop flavor is wonderful. Wish I could get this nearby.

hayduke (3583) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 26, 2008
On draft, this was a rich copper color with a light pinkish head and moderate lacing. Nose of floral and citrus hops, and a smooth and clean mouthfeel. Flavor is dominated by the citrus, and there is a satisfying and nicely biter finish. A well balanced and quite drinkable IPA.

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - JUN 14, 2008
6/3/08 On draught. The hops tend to be very earthy with a stong resiny influence. Still, balances quite well with the sweet malt.

crackedmachine (473) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 9, 2008
A nice surprise, on tap at Duck Island. A highly drinkable, moderately bitter IPA with very nice citrus and mild pine flavors. Big head. A delicious, not-too-strong ale for hop lovers.

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - APR 3, 2008
Tap at Brouwers. A nice aroma of citrus, and herbal cat pee/weed. Pours a hazy golden tone with a great fluffy lasting head. Nice moderate hop profile with floral, citrus, and weed flavors accompanied by some light caramel malt to add some sense of balance. A nice IPA.

On tap at Collins a while back. Light amber with big fluffy off white head. Very nice citrus aroma and taste. Great fresh hop taste. Just a bit fbitter in the finish; balanced quite well. Love the hops in this. Not sweet at all. Head stayed fluffy the whole way down.

TomDecapolis (4609) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUL 9, 2007
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy golden amber with an average foamy off white head that laced. Aroma of fresh citrus hops, lots of orange, a citrus blast. Also got some floral notes in there. Flavor is a blast of west coast hops with their great citrus, pine, grapefruit, chewy hop thing going on. Some caramel malt to balance but overall this one is all about the hops.
