Pint at the brewpub. Pours a clear lighter amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma of piney hops, orange citrus, caramel malts, and tea. Flavor of orange and grapefruit citrus, caramel malts, pine resin, tea, and grass. Light-medium bodied, with moderate carbonation and a bitter, resinous mouthfeel. Solid IPA.

3fourths (8962) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUN 7, 2008
UPDATED: JUN 30, 2013 Draft at the brewery in Portland. Hugely pungent + fresh hop nose - big Cascade and Amarillo, fresh, green, dank, awesome. Grassy cannabis and fresh, vivid, dry-hopped character, straight hops, pure, assertive but not caustic or corrosive. Peppery but smooth. Awesome pure hop bomb.

Tap at Marciero. Deep blond color. Lots head, slightly cloudy, orange tints. Nose of peach, mango, melon, bread. Interesting nose with lots of stone and tropical fruit but not much citrus notes. Bready, fruity flavor that got nicer and nicer as it opened up and warmed. Original and tastety.

marcus (8589) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 11, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours golden amber with a decent beige head and a pine aroma. There is a nice caramel malt flavor that is overwhelmed by hop bitterness. Though somewhat unbalanced, it is a very pleasant and tasty brew.

alexsdad06 (8145) - Ohio, USA - OCT 23, 2010
22 oz. bottle from kenb. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma had quite a bit of orange and grapefruit, crisp resiny hops and mild caramel malts. The flavor is a nice blend of caramel dipped biscuity malts and the nice grapefruit citrus hops. Other flavors include resiny hops with a hint of herbal spiciness. Medium bodied with a dry bitterness to the finish. This is an enjoyable IPA especially since it is organic which I usually have more issues with.

[5918-20131011] 1pt6floz bottle. Grainy leafy hops aroma. Hazy, orange brown body with a quick foamy white head. Bitter grainy orange flavour has a bit of a metallic oldness. Medium body. Seems a bit old but is interesting. (7/3+/7/3/15) 3.5
