Muddy. Aroma is very bright, especially with amarillo. A lot of amarillo, touch of mandarin simcoe, the malts are pale and light but muddied by too much yeast.

On tap at Bottleworks, pours copper with a small white head. Aroma of hops, biscuit and a little ginger (?). Flavour reveals more of that ginger, coriander, biscuit and hops. Quite different and nice.

A hazed blonde IPA with a thin creamy lacing off white head. In aroma, a smooth floral hops, pinhey and restrained, over biscuit malt. In mouth, a nice grassy citrusy hops over caramel malt, light pink grapefruits, not bad. On tap at brewpub, Oct. 9 2011.

Draught at the brewery. Pours hazy orange with a medium, frothy off-white head, long retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is citrus, tropical fruit, and dank hops with cracker malt. Flavor is heavy dank, citrus, and tropical fruit hops and moderate bitterness, medium cracker malt and a dry finish. Medium body, moderate carbonation, and a pleasant light alcohol warmth.

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.

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Brouwer’s. Wow, what an awesome little surprise this was tonight. Didn’t even know they were pouring it, and it’s a delectable little Simcoe bomb ready to ambush the unwary. Pours crystal clear coppery medium amber with a thinnish, off-white, creamy head. Huge floral bouquet of mango, tangerine, and pineapple. Just a tropical fruit conflagration. Creamy medium body, well-placed carb for body but not for fizz or effect or anything like that. Clean and refreshing. A little bit of graham crackery malt under the wash of tropical fruits, but this one is really about the fruits. They tail off into a nice gooey, rind-y bitterness near the end. Maybe a tad overly sweet in spots, but, otherwise, this is a buy-by-the-keg IPA to serve at BBQs or that second house you might’ve bought if you hadn’t spent all your damn money on fancy beer.
