COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Copious quantities of hops and an assertive alcohol content are the foundation of our best-selling beer. Crystal malts and a blend of Yakima grown Fuggles, Centennial, Cascade, and Ahtanum hops impart a very satisfying balance. This ale is late-hopped in the hop back for added flavor and aroma.

Tap. A; Semi clear orange color with an off-white head. Lacing. N: Pine, grapefruit, leaves, orange syrup, some marijuana and onion, plenty of biscuit. Peppercorn. Hint of toffee and toast. T: Goodly bitter and a balancing sweetness. M: Quite dry, moderately resinous, medium body. No alcohol. Prickly carbonation. O: Well rounded IPA. Crisp and snappy; old school.

Draught at St. Augustine’s, Vancouver
Hazy golden color, with creamy head. Mild aroma of citrusy hops. The mouthfeel is lean and the sweetness quite low, yet the malts are quite chewy, and despite the lighter color it shows a bit too much caramel; well, if this is still the original recipe, it would have been innovative back then, but today you can find crispier IPAs; strong bitterness, with hop resins and some chicory.
Good IPA.

mcberko (12451) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 6, 2016
On tap at St. Augustine’s, pours a mostly clear golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out considerable citrus notes along with some moderate berry-like fruitiness. Flavour brings out citrus and piney hops upfront, followed by buttery bready malt. Lots of punch to this one. Nothing spectacular but it’s well-made.

Hop stone fruit mango aroma. Bubbly with tight white head. Real differencian of different hops in flavor of earthy and pine northwest hops. Flavor has some caramel sweetness only lightly as the hops carried in the beer.

BeefPocoroba (49) - Oregon, USA - SEP 7, 2010
On tap at Corey and Monica’s kick-ass Pig Roast for Labor Day weekend. It washed down Jeter the pig wonderfully and didn’t wear me out, so I was able to pee standing up that night.

leems (406) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 26, 2010
Hazy light amber, cascade aroma. Cascade flavor, malt is there but not St th forefront. The cascades dominate the flavor and aroma profile.

neepsntatties (1653) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 22, 2010
Had this on tap (some time ago) at the Laurelwood Public House on NE Sandy Blvd. in Portland, OR. Colour... cloudy copper-amber with a thick off-white head. Nose... hoppy with some malt. Palate... I like the blend of hops used for this IPA as they make for quite a citrus oriented palate, but the malt is not to be denied its time and graciously helps keep a balance. The Boss is a nice quaffer for the, "light" end of the west coast IPA style!

hayduke (4462) - Eureka, California, USA - MAR 16, 2009
From a draft pour at the 51st and Sandy brewpub this poured a cloudy amber with a medium white head and good lacing. Nose of citrus hops and caramel malts. Smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is lightly bitter and this is in the finish as well. A very solid and well balanced IPA.

GJF (1468) - Mount Vernon, Iowa, USA - DEC 30, 2008
Nothing outrageous, but a pretty classic west coast IPA. Very drinkable with a solid dose of hops in the finish.
