This beer has a golden color and promient hop flavor provided by numerous hop additions during the boil and dry hopping in the kegs. The supportive malt flavors and body make this ale a great multi-dimensional beer. The IBU level is 63.

On tap at Hood Canal, pours a hazy dark golden with a small white head. Aroma reveals notes of resinous and bittering hops. Flavour is overmalted, with bitter resinous hops and bready caramel malt. The balance isnít so good, with too much malt and a weird hop characteristic. Not impressive.

Ferris (8448) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 30, 2015
Draft - Sweet citrus hops with some nice floral notes. Clear gold with a thin white head. Earthy hops, pale malts and a lasting bitterness.

October 2012. Bottle. Amber color with a white head. Nice aromas, but a bit bland and out of balance. Somewhat acidic on the finish.

Hazy orange, big white head. Aroma reminds me of Brett and Belgian IPA right off the bat with lots of tropical fruit and sweet malt. also kind of a lemonade thing going on. Note sure if this yeast is supposed to be so dominant. Itís not terrible, but it is a little on the sweet side and has too much yeasty gum flavor for my liking. Medium thin body, sweet and mildly bitter finish

bhensonb (12749) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 16, 2011
Bomber from a Fred Meyer on 196th St in Seattle. Pours amber with a foamy 4 finger near white head. Maybe beige. Aroma is rather citric. Med body. Flavor starts a bit cardboard and metallic. Thereís a caramel backbone and some citric/grapefruit. Itís nicely bitter. Bitter is the best point.

5000 (6474) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 15, 2011
Bottle:   Orangish side of amber, slight haze, thin white head, spotty lacing, very light carbonation   Soft hop aroma, some sweet and zesty citrus rind too.   Fairly sweet on the tongue, hoppy but not biting.   Seems fairly malty too.   Does fall a bit flat as far as mouthfeel, lacks carbonation.   Lingering earthiness and soil.   Sweet citrusy aftertaste.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to thin.   Decent IPA, better than I was expecting but it needs to be more lively.   Sweeter than most, and less bitter.   Not bad.

Aubrey (3501) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - OCT 28, 2010
UPDATED: JUN 9, 2011 Clear and copper-orange with a nice head -- tightly packed, creamy bubbles and big, bursting bubbles. Creamy carbonation created a nice softness on the tongue. Very fruity and flowery. In the background, I detected an odd, "synthetic" perfume quality, which was a bit off putting. I loved the sweet tropical fruit flavors, though. And the mild yet balancing bitterness. RERATE bottle: Overly carbonated; head overflowed with a gentle pour. Sharp and acidic on the tongue. Had some curiously interesting flavors; kind of reminded me of a Belgian ale. Hops were perfumey and floral. Very slight sweetness surfaced, like rock candy and scorched toffee. Overall, odd but decent beer.

Skyview (5345) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - MAY 7, 2010
Received 22-oz bomber via trade with 5000. Pours a semi-hazy orange amber colored brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that quickly dissipates to a thin ring. Aroma of caramel malt, some citrus zest a hint of dill, vanilla and grapefruit. Taste is medium bodied, a touch more malty flavor than hops with a touch of sweet apple. Finish is semi-dry with a hint of citrus and lemon aftertaste.

Beer sampler at the Crabhouse, Port Angeles, Washington, USA. Komt goed uit de bus omdat het niet heel erg bitter is.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 23, 2010
Bomber. Pours a clear, dark, reddish-amber color with a moderate head of beige tinted, bubbly froth. A thick wash of suds breaks apart into looping, broken arches and spotty flares of lace. The nose is balanced to malty, showing biscuit and buttery bread malts with hints of juicyfruit gum and a little soap. Peppery citrus hops seem dull, possibly faded, as they struggle to match the pace of the malt bill. Flavors show a bit more bitter, with some of the peppery citrus asserting itself, and the caramel biscuit malt seeming considerably oxidized. The palate is on the thin side of medium bodied, drinking papery and slightly dry, a bit under carbonated. Itís drinkable, but not all that enjoyable.
