3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2006 Very light amber with lots of bubbles that cling to glass. Strong fruity aroma. Barely bitter, slightly skunky start with a fruity finish that lingers bitter then fruity. Strikingly smooth, clean feel. A favorite from this area.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Clear gold color with a white head. Aromas are mainly sweet, flowery hops. Initially, it had a pretty good balance of bitter and sweet, but later turned to a more bitter, hoppy taste. I liked it alot. The feel is smooth as well, not to thick. Another great Idaho beer!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: NOV 21, 2007 From a 12 oz Bottle. Strong nose of herbal hops with a hint of citrus. Pours cloudy light amber with a medium white head. Hops work well on the tongue. I am rating this one again, and find it a little better than last time. Decent IPA.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
A well established aroma of hops lets the nose know this beer is waiting to be tasted. The glass fills with a cloudy butterscotch solution that has no head only big bubbles that fasten themselves to the edge of the glass. This beer is thin and watery, yet it produces a moderately hearty hops taste that fades slowly leaving a mild nutty taste in the mouth.

Pours a cloudy amber with a thin white head that quickly dissipates down to sparse lacing. Smells of citrus and flowers. Taste is breaddy with some nice pine resin and citrus elements.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Orange, grapefruit, herbal and grassy hops in the nose with underlying honey and toasted malt sweetness. Clear golden body with a fine bubbled and lasting white head. Sweet, doughy malts blend well with orange, grapefruit and herbal hop flavours and moderate bitterness. Medium light body with lively, strong carbonation. Sampled at GABF 2005.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Orangey citrus aroma. Faint whiff of malts. Quite lean, rather bitter. Moderate citrus hop flavor. This could use a bit more body and juicier palate. Finish is very bitter.

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2008 Pours a medium gold body with a little note or orange. The head is thick and white. Teh aroma is not subtle at all. It is full of grass, orange peels and some light fresh bread crust. Very nice smell. The taste is full of orange peels and some burnt toast. There is a hint of flowers here, but it is overpowered by the straight up hops. This needs a little more balance.
