COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Northwest style IPA with a rich balanced malt profile with Centennial and Cascade bittering hops backed by whole flower Kent and Cascade aromatic dry hops. Definately no over bitter.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Pours a transparent copper orange with a spotty-lacing white head. Aroma of lightly toasted grainy malts and some earthy grassy hops. Starts with a mild caramel malty sweetness and some earthy bittering hops. Finishes drier, earthy and bittersweet. For a west-coast IPA, Id expect a much bigger fresher hoppy presence.

ATLBeerDog (280) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Pours a light yellow color that is slightly cloudy with a small head and below average lacing and very under carbonated. Light smells of hops that is lacking in aroma. First taste is extremely light not just for an IPA but for a pale ale as well. Not worth your time or money as this beer is lacking flavor.

unclemattie (4189) - Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2008
22oz bottle. Pours clear orange, thin white fizzy head. Aroma of latex and hops. Flavor of light malt. Very well balanced with a bitter hop finish.

shp555 (2024) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Pours a hazy light copper color with a white head. Aroma is malty, toasty, and some citrus hops. Flavor is malty, toasty, caramel, and a bitter citrus finish.

spikester (604) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 5, 2008
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2008 Poured hazy amber color from a bomber, minimal head good lacing. Aroma was a bit of fruity hops. Flavor is bitter citrus hops with a fair amount of malt backing. Not as crisp as I expect of an IPA. Very smooth though. Could be a session brew. Will try on tap in the future. This beer is hard to find even in Oregon where it is brewed. I have to admit Ive had APAs that had more hops. Nice mild IPA.

ABUSEDGOAT (2394) - California, USA - FEB 24, 2008
Hazy orange, large head with good lacing and retention. Aroma is floral, spicy and citric hops. Some caramel backing. All in all, very light. Would make a light APA even. Medium to light body, very low bitterness. Bland.

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 27, 2007
Bold citrus aromas are accompanied by caramel malt. Flavors a semi-sweet with a bitter finish. Pretty decent IPA.

bhensonb (11079) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 1, 2007
Bomber from Liquid Solutions. Firm citrus aroma backed by a bit of roasted malt. Slightly hazy orange amber color with a head that never really arrived. Medium body with fizzy carbonation. The flavor is citrus hop fairly well balanced with caramel malt. Grapefruit is noticeable. Very nice feel. The finish is less than dry but really set off by decent bitter. This may be underrated, or perhaps I got lucky with this bottle.

jgb9348 (4738) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - OCT 26, 2007
Hazy golden/orange coloured body with a very thick tan coloured head that lasts quite a while for a year-old beer. Aroma of fresh lemons, oranges, hops (of course) and some white sugar. Medium-bodied; Strong hoppy flavour up front with a good malty kick and a subtle sweetness fading to a pleasant bitterness. Aftertaste shows more of the same, a good malt backbone with potent hops up more noticeable. Overall, a decent IPA - nothing amazing...but good to try! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Portland, Oregon, purchased one year ago, sampled on 26-October-2007.

Bottle. Hazy amber with a huge off-white head. Citrusy, earthy, floral aroma. Grapefruit, pine flavor with light backing malt. LIngering grapefruit and pine. Medium body. Slight oak and lactic/infected tones.
