Full nose of citrus fruit and caramel malts. Lightly sweet body with caramel notes evolving into light grapefruit and light hops. Not overwhelming, but the finish thins out a bit.

donít know how or why iíve avoided this for so long. lots of citrus aroma and a good amount of caramel maltiness. flavor is very reminiscent of indica ipa. surprising sweetness but a healthy grapefruit hoppiness. not the most bitter ipa, but propably one of the most tasty. I kind of like the fact that itís not a near 7% abv ipa.

UPDATED: JUL 16, 2011 I might be tempted to give this beer somewhat higher marks if I wasnít so convinced that itís basically a SNPA clone. While the hop profile is a bit different, of course, thereís a real similarity in the breadiness. I like the tart, dry qualities somewhat but thereís just not enough thatís distinctive about this one.

Enjoyed at AT@T park as a matter of fact. That stand behind home plate. 7$. Of course thats a rip off. I know. It was good though. A little more characteristic than your standard.

UPDATED: SEP 23, 2007 Light amber beer with a nice frothy off-white head. Lemon and herbal hop aroma, actually a hint of lemon tea for a moment. Some orange and peach lingers in the background. Malty flavour with a bunch of bitterness coming very quickly, and again that strange tea-note.

Heavy hop flavor, kind of soapy mouthfeel, very citrusy with a pine tree ambiance. nice drink, a little plain but well done. I think my glass did not get all the soap rinsed out as this is my least fav drink from this brewery to date - i will rerate with a clean glass when i get a new bottle.

Pours a nice amber color. Aroma is sweet citrus hops with notes of honey and pineapple. It a very clean and crisp and loaded with nice hop flavor. It has a slightly bitter but fading finish.

Sweet, this is delicious. Orange look with a small fast disappearing head. Aroma is very fresh hobby with notes of oranges and pine from the cascade. The flavor has a broad bitterness, and a refined malty sweetness, which balance it out nicely. Classy.

Pours a crystal clear amber that forms decently into a foam head. Smell is good, can tell this is an IPA. Solid drinker.

12oz bottle. Pours a medium copper that is just about opaque with a decent head and excellent lacing. Decent aroma of hops. The taste is nicely hoppy, if just slightly restrained. I suppose you could call this a sessionable beer then. A pretty decent IPA for a pretty decent price.
