Bomber. Great nose of piney, grassy, bitter hops. A little caramel malt in there, too. Flavor does not back up the big nose, unfortunately. Muted notes of grass, citrus. Was expecting alot more from this beer, esp after reading all the hype. Not bad, though.

16 oz can from a friend of mine. Packaged on 20 January 2015, so relatively fresh. Get some onion on the nose, plus some earthy grassy hops, but the onion dominates. Flavor is more pleasant with a pretty smooth hop presence, but the finish has a funny metallic tinge. Still very drinkable.

Draft. Little aroma. Flavors of sweet orange before fading to a bitter punch in the face. Solid but not terribly distinctive.

Golden color with decent white head. Aroma is interesting, spicy, floral with some citrus. Taste is interesting as well, spice mixed with citrus with pine on the back end. The use of Ahtanum hops makes this Ipa stand out.

Pours a golden orange with a foamy white head. Orange an citrus on the nose with malt sweetness and some piney flavours. Initial sweet orange on the tongue, punch of hop bitterness balanced well with caramel malt sweetness. A little sweeter than I prefer in an IPA, but well balanced. Refreshing
