Tap. Very nicel floral aroams. Great flavors of citrus, flowers and pine. Offset by a bit of malts. Very nice West Caost style IPA, medium bodied almost creamy.

The aroma promises a symphony of hops, as does the prominent hop lace upon pouring. The viscosity suggests the malt strength/alcohol content. The hop flavors deliver on the aromaís promise, producing a hop synergy second to no other. The sweet abundant pale malt could not rival the hop presence, which really lingers in the finish. Move over Stone, you have some real competition in the IPA department!

Slightly cloudy light copper color with a thick white head that leaves behind a good deal of lacing. Crisp floral/grassy hop aroma. Medium-bodied palate. Nice lingering hop finish with some dryness. Good malt character to back up as well.

UPDATED: JUN 25, 2008 like chewin on a sugar coated pine cone.
(yes i know). super hoppy and really too sweet. out of balance but strangely drinkable6/4/6/3/13 is equal to 3.2
re-rate on tap @ papago... hazed brownish gold with a foamy white head and rings of pillowy lacing. aromas of pine, citrus and grapefruit pith stand out in front of grainy sweetness. the flavor is caramel-y grain sweetness... sugar added as a last ditch effort to balance it out and make sense of it?.... tastes like a sugary pine cone mixed with the bitterness from grapefruit. itís certainly hoppy... itís sweet and bitter but not necessarily dry. thatís what makes it weird for me... 8/4/6/3/13 is equal to 3.4

very good beer. Nice dry hop flavor. Strong in every respect...& you have to respect that. If you like hops youíll lov ethis. This beer isnít very well balanced though, but for a hophead......balance is not a real issue

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Murky brown orange color with a creamy off white head. Fresh hoppy nose of pine and orange peel. Big hop taste in this big IPA. Tons of sweet grapefruit, pine resin, apple sauce, orange juice and peach. Solid bready malts to support it all. Long bitter finish of grapefruit rind. Full mouthfeel, and a well hidden 7% ABV. This is an aggressive PNW IPA, and a very tastey beer. Iím glad I have two bottles of this.

Nice, slightly cloudy copper color, frothy lasting head. Oh the nose! Huge hop aroma with pine and citrus - nose runs the gamut. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Nice lemon/grapefruit hop flavor. Just enough sweet maltiness to balance. Very nicely done.
