This beer is like biting into a grapefruit with the skin still on it. Its aroma is a bit deceptive, as it tends to come across as mild and sort of weedy, yet the citrus outburst is extraordinarily present on the front. I work at the Lucky Lab and we do bottle our beers from the tap.

UPDATED: AUG 5, 2006 Golden-amber colour. Massive dry-hop aroma, living the Amarillo dream of grapefruit, wood, peach, pear and dalandan. Very bitter, woody in style, with light citrus undertones. Malts are bready and toasty but always keep their distance. This is 100% hop stew, but I’ve had a lot of hop stews in my day and few are as satisfying in both aroma and flavour as this one. If I lived in PDX, this would be my go-to beer.

Great IPA. Poured in an Imperial pint at the brewpub. Citrus and pine, clean finish. Little sweet on the back end, but no unpleasant bitterness.

UPDATED: OCT 1, 2007 On cask @ LL. Well, first off I was informed by the bartender that this was a bigger version of the LL pale ale (an "extra pale"), and this was corroborated by a binder that had all their brews in it. So to judge it by an IPA yardstick would be inappropriate in my mind. As such, this fine brew successfully occupies the ground between a pale ale and an IPA. The color was yellow-orange with a nice white head. The aroma was a wonderful grapefruit smell with a sweet floral note to it. The taste is of grapefruit as well but is smooth and clean and does not overpower the maltiness present. One of the better LL beers I’ve had.

Clear orange-golden color with decent head that fades to ring and spots. Grapefruit and some tropical notes, mostly pineapple. No astringent or alcoholic aromas. Big fruity hop flavors, red grapefruit, pineapple, orange all jump off the light malts leaving a bitter finish. Great West Coast IPA. Soft, light-moderate mouthfeel with low carbonation helps this hop juice go down. Highly drinkable hop bomb.

Draft at the brewpub. Aroma of super citrus hop. Golden amber color with a reluctant white head. Medium body, creamy carbonation. Strong citrus and pine flavors. The malt is almost lost. This is a super IPA. Way bitter into the finish.

Sampled this one on draught at the Lucky Lab Beer Hall in Portland, OR. Pours to a slightly hazy, burnt orange color, with a thick, creamy, white head, and a moderate amount of carbonation. Lots of zesty/citrus hops in the nose, very fragrant. The palate has a good base of pale and sweet malts, paired with really good citrus hop tang. This beer finishes with more good pale and sweet malt up front, then ends with a good blast of citrus hop bitterness that lingers. Well done AIPA, which is standard in Portland, OR. Very enjoyable pint of beer.

Tap at the LL beer hall. Cloudy golden amber with good sized o.w. head, lots of fine lace. Very fresh, quality made American style IPA. Fresh picked hop aroma & flavor with perfect balance of bitterness, fresh caramel malt flavor and sweetness. Pushing full bodied. This was the best beer I had on the visit to Portland.

On tap at Lucky Lab. Nice, orange color and thin, light head. Beautifully strong hoppy flavor from beginning to end. Yum!

UPDATED: NOV 3, 2012 Draft. I had about six.....teen high lifes before this so my pallette is thoroughly destroyed but I think it?s a pretty good IPA. Definitely some citrus hops going on here. Tasty, but what wouldn?t be after so many high life?s. Update: revisited this on a clean palette. Better then the first time encounter.
