Pours a hazy amber with a frothy head. Resinous hop aroma with tangerine hints as well. Flavors of resinous hops as well. Very little hop bitterness and hints of orange with decent malt backbone. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22 oz. bottle, pours a hazy opaque dark amber orange with a small off-white head. Aroma of big resinous hops, truckloads of tropical fruits, especially tangerine, and big caramel malt. Flavour brings out shitloads of bitter resinous hops, loads of oranges, and a big caramel malt backbone. Finishes dry and bitter, but also with some residual sugars. The malt profile is perhaps too prominent for my tastes; however, this is still a well-made big fat juicy IPA. Solid, but not my thing.

Great IPA. Not super hoppy but delicious round flavor. Carmel flavor, I taste a bit of brown ale. This is an unexpectedly good craft-brew IPA. - Snowboards and IPA

IndianaRed (2954) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 27, 2013
On tap at Ellensburg Pasta Co. Classic medium amber with a dense sandy cored head. Lots of grapefruit hoppiness in the aroma with a mild biscuity malt character as well. Flavor is near ideal. Big fresh citrus hops and just enough sweet light malts to compliment. Moderately bitter but so tasty. Creamy soft palate and easy on be carbonation. Very nice !

12oz. can poured into my ipa glass. Pours a slightly hazy dark orange color with a thick frothy white head that leaves great lacing. Smells of pine, citrus, and resin. Tastes of all the same things in the smell but wow its an amazingly citrusy hop bomb. Mouthfeel is between light and medium with ok carbonation and a dry finish. All the rumors I’ve heard of this being one of the best ipas on the market are true. I will be seeking this out on a regular basis for now on, but it tends to sell fast.

gramity (1581) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 22, 2013
Pours quite clear golden with a large, pillowy white head. Aroma has a huge C-hop presence, basically like picking a cascade cone off the vine, opening it up, and inhaling. That comes through in the flavor as well, along with a bit of biscuit and a medium-bitter finish. Light and drinkable, but at 7% maybe deceptively so.

Earthy citrus aromas, hazey orange, medium bitterness, rounding out to be a sweet and satisfying little IPA.
