Big citrusy, piney, resiny hop aroma. Cloudy light amber. White lacing, medium bodied. Very dry, resiny and grapefruity hop flavor. Has a bit of an earthy aspect in the finish. Big west coast dry hopped ipa. Prob one of the best bottled ipaís Iíve had in a while.

On tap at Laurelwood on 52nd and Sandy (not the pizza place). Light golden-orange color with big off-white head that laces well. Intense fruity, almost tropical aroma. Grapefruit, pineapple, mandarin, tangerine and biscuits & honey. Some red apple. Soft creamy bubbles and low carbonation make this medium bodied brew smooth and very drinkable. Sweet lightly toasted biscuity malt is bursting with juicy hop flavors. Big pink grapefruit impression, orange, tangerine and piney resin on a lingering bitter finish without being offensively bitter. Hugely drinkable. Probably the best IPA I found in Portland.

Bottle acquired in a trade with a friend in the Northwest. Consumed at home and poured into a goblet. It pours a little hazy copper with a nice head. The aroma is a mild citrus with hints of resin and tropical fruit. The taste is quite balanced with the main properties of the hops evidently coming from late in the boil and dry-hopping. The finish is clean. Great beer. I wish we could get this out here on the East Coast.

My opinion, which doesnít mean squat, but this is best brewery in Oregon, overall excellent IPA. Canít say enough about fruity hop aroma, and great clean bitterness and awesome hop character.

From a mason jar 1 day old from the brewery...big thanks to Jeff! Hazy dark golden amber with big head. Freaking wonderful nug & citrus aroma. Did someone just smoke a j, or is that just my beer? The hops are perfect; citrus, pine and nugs. Just enough lightly sweet caramel malts bring it all together and keeps the bitterness in check well. At 7.5%, itís got just enough of everything to really shine. Love it. Not sure what you could do to improve much on this...from a hop-heads perspective anyways.

Drank from a 22 oz. bottle. Poured really nice, with a nice head. Had a nice citrusy, hoppy smell. The ale was a a brown, copperish color. Began mild, but after a few drinks the hoppiness came in. A very smooth beer, that I enjoyed.

Yum....gorgeous amber color with a big head for an IPA, still very miniscule. Amazing aromatics, starts floral and rapidly moves on to honey with a bit of chimayo chile powder. Terrific balance...brings the hops but rounds it out with some malty sweetness AND body. Itís got the grapefruit but this isnít sucking on a yellow pith, itís the ripe pink flesh with a hit of rind as you scrape it out of a split one at the breakfast table. Very pleasantly suprised with this one and favorite against Diamond Knot IPA and Rogue Yellow Snow in a small tasting.

Have enjoyed multiple times in many formats. When fresh, this is one of the very best IPAís from the PNW. This shows dank, piney aromatics from the first pour. Medium bodied, this is quite easy to enjoy. Thick lacing coats the glass. A mix of resin & bright citrus fruit hit the palate & bring you right back to the glass for more. Lingering bitterness from the ample hops. Excellent.
