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.

DYCSoccer17 (3290) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 13, 2006
On tap at Laurelwood Publick House in Portland, OR. 5 ounce sample. Citric grapefruity hops present in the nose with some orangey and hempy aromas. Mild sweetness is also present. Transparent light coppery color with frothy, off-white/yellow head and nice lacing. Metallic, piney hoppiness to start with some grapefruity bittering hops to finish. Sweet, toasted malts are sandwiched between the hoppiness. Well-balanced.

Easily my favorite beer sampled at the brewpub. Went well with the clam chowder. Gold colour. Light long lasting head. Delicious fruity hop flavour. Hoppy finish. Nice balance lots of hops and too much.

roner77 (35) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 3, 2006
Tasty IPA for sure. More golden than amber. The flavor is of citrus and PNW Hops. The body is medium and the beer has a slight bitter finish. Good stuff.

Draft - A golden colored beer with subtle citrus nose. Malty bitter flavor. Could drink a lot of this IPA.

aspidites (1272) - manteca, California, USA - FEB 14, 2006
Piny and citrusy nose with signature cascade notes. Very clean and soft beer that seems much smaller than it actually is. A touch of sweetness and fruit forward malt are overly balanced with the clean and underwhelming dryhopping. Soft and clean finish with a little hint of copper penny from the Cascade.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2006
This was a decent but somewhat thin IPA. I think it had a great hop profile, and really showcases that aspect of the beer, but it was severely lacking in balance and in malt characteristics.

BrewDad (4784) - Olympia, Washington, USA - NOV 3, 2005
(BJCP Class) Nice hops aroma with a great head. Good golden copper color added to this beer. There is a snap with the start of drinking this beer. It grabs you for sure. Aggressively hopped good citrus flavor like a grapefruit. Good dry finish which tends to be bitter. A good deep rich pasta beer.

JoeMcPhee (8313) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 31, 2005
Golden/pale amber colour, thin white head. Aroma of citrus and light tropical fruit. Semi-sweet malt with a sweet fruity hop flavour balancing it out. A bit of spicy hop flavour as well. Well-balanced beer. Nice combination of spicy and citrusy hops. Easy-drinking IPA.
