Pours crystal clear yellow with little to no head. A sweet light body backed by a huge bitter hop grip. Enjoyed this pint.

Nice, light and fresh. The malt bill keeps it light. The hops have a very herbaceous quality. The alcohol is very hidden, as is that 100+IBU

Tap @ HUB Bike Bar for #IPADay 2012... Poured pale, amber/golden with a thick, retaining white head. This was quite resinous and bitter. Not floral at all. Thick mouthfeel. Pepper spiced and loads of citrus here. Some warming alcohol in the finish.

Nice IPA, lots of bitterness and a very nice profile at that a great strong IPA. Looks very light, and has a similar light taste, bitterness of hops balanced by their citrus quality.

Oregon Brewers Festival 2011 – Portland, OR
Golden in color, clear with a thin white head. Big hops aroma and a nice malt backing. The flavor was a big huge IIPA grapefruit flavors. This was an amazing beer looked like a light beer but has a huge flavor.

On tap at Concordia Ale House for IIPA fest in late July 09. Pale yellow color. I was very surprised at how pale this beer looked as it easily could have fooled me for BMC, but that is where the similarities end. Big piney, citrusy nose. Big hop assault with the first sip, then malty backbone evens things out before a big bad ass hoppy finish. Extremely well balanced, highly drinkable, great depth. Superbly executed. My choice of the fest
