ACHops (1247) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 24, 2012
On tap @ Beer Junction. Pours clear pale orange with thin head. Aroma is grapefruit hops. Taste is solid caramel malt base with a ton of hop flavor; grapefruit, pine, and floral. Nice alcohol to pull it all together. Truly one if the best balanced IPAs around. Glad to see this back. Gearhead is a weak sibling to this.

Taste is crisp, hoppy and grassy with some pine and citrus. Finish is crisp, sweetish and grassy hoppy with some lingering bitterness and citrus. Good one.

12 oz Bottle. Smells of pine and catpiss. Pours a golden amber. Tastes a bit sweet but pleasant, lots of sweet hops in the flavor. Lasting aftertaste with ideal bitterness. This is a solid IPA.

Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a murky golden yellow with a small white head. The aroma is a big sniff of pine with citrus and hops. The flavor is pine and hops in a nice blend with some citrus at the end. An excellent IPA.

umich03jm (3304) - Flat Rock, Michigan, USA - NOV 24, 2015
Bottle. 2 months old. Aroma is sugary citrus juice with light flowers and crackers. Tastes the same. Too much sugary malt here. Maybe the hops faded a little over two months? Almost no bitterness. Not really my kinda IPA. I’ll try to revisit fresh some day.

Plastic cup draft at the Moda Center for a Blazers game. The pour is clear copper with a one inch egg white head that is lasting, impressive considering the plastic stadium cup. The aroma is big orange citrus fruit, strong resin and sweet malt. The taste is a great blend of the big fresh orange citrus resin hops and softly sweet malt. The palate is medium bodied, active carbonation and a resin and mineral finish. Really solid IPA, super fresh - fantastic for a stadium beer.
