Draft at snoose junction. Pours a cloudy dark amber with bright golden edges. Dense creamy white head. Big fresh piney nose, very inviting. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Bitey dry mid palate; there’s toast and caramel there too under the resiny bite. Big dark dry resiny finish. Nice for an ipa that aims more for power than variety in flavors. Worth repeating.

Tap @ K&K. Hazy orange pour with a persistent, short white head leaving moderate lace. Nose is fairly malty, with a touch of pine hops. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Pretty ordinary double IPA: Caramel, grapefruit rind, more EtOH bitterness than I like in any beer and some oranges. Finish is long and bitter, with more EtOH bitterness and some dandelion. Pretty average, which puts it well below the high water mark in this part of the world.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - SEP 19, 2010
Draught. Seemed rather a beer difficult to appoach. Draught. Thin soapy head with much lacing. Rather feeble aroma, almost merely a smell. Full bodied hop flavour that redeemed the aroma. Fine hoppy finish. Worth drinking withal.

Good hop aroma. Orange color. This is good. Quite hoppy but doesn’t seem ttoo strong. Definitely drinkable.

bitbucket (2158) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - SEP 19, 2009
Sampled at Fremont Oktoberfest. Pours hazy orange amber with a scant white head. Sweet citrus and cotton candy aroma. Full body nearly still, and the serving temperature is pretty close to the current outdoor temperature in Fremont. There are some weird flavor notes in the aroma and taste, perhaps due to being so warm? The taste is cotton candy sweet, with some citrus that fades to resin.

Aptly named, this is one strange IPA. If there is 100IBU in here it’s hiding under the layers of sugar.

DialSquare (2306) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 28, 2009
from old rating note: draft at fremont oktoberfest in seattle. dark amber pour with small light tan head. floral hops and sweet honey malt in the aroma. taste is all about the big hops. balanced somewhat with caramel malts. suits my tastes - but tough to put into context after day of drinking. K7.5

Bradrcr (806) - Renton, Washington, USA - SEP 14, 2008
9/12/08 On draught at the WBC Oktoberfest. Aroma is citrus cascade flora forward with good caramel balance. Appearance is hazy amber with a moderate maintained off-white head. Flavor is harsh, with only some malt sweetness balance, and metallic in the background. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a low carb texture and highly dry starchy finish. Overall, funky and not even close to easy drinking.
