Pours a muted orange with a one finger off white head with nice lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, tropical fruits, and sweet malts. Taste is similar to the aroma. Has a medium body with a slightly cream mouthfeel and a semi dry, moderately bitter, medium long finish. Overall, a pretty tasty IPA.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a pale brown color with a bit of head. Full hop flavor yet mild in the bitterness.

natejgood (391) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - MAR 24, 2013
Pours a hazy medium brown with a nice white head that goes down quickly. Aroma of citrus, hops and a bit of malty carmel. Nice hop flavor but also a bit of wheat undertones. Not quite as crisp in the mouth as some IPAs but still fairly easy drinking. With all of the great IPAs out there right now this probably isnít the best of the style, but itís definitely not bad either.

In short: A classic golden session fruity IPA of superior quality.
How: Bottle 22oz. consumed very fresh, a week or two after being purchase directly at the brewpub. Tasting session with Montreal friends.
The look: Cloudy golden body topped by a small off-white head.
In long: Nose has a smooth inviting character of refreshing fruits and grassy hops over a smooth toastiness. Taste has very nice toasted cereals, a smooth caramel flavor, plenty of juicy fruity hops (citrus fruits mainly), a tasty bitterness that is round and smooth. Everything is smooth in this beer, nothing aggressive here, this is however a tasty beer, a superior tasty session IPA. Iíd drink gallons of this beer. Another world-class IPA from the west-coast, sometimes Iím jealous of people living on the west-coast, but then I look at my watch and it is 1pm here and realizes that it only 10am on the west coast and Iím like ďGet over it west-coast, stop living in the past!Ē

MartinT (7811) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 24, 2012
My Bottom Line:
Leafy, citrusy hop resins top cuddly cereal sugars in this very satisfying rendition of the West Coastís signature style.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy sheet of foam garnishes the misty amber.
-The resinous hop bitterness is gripping, but leveled to the rest of the brewís meidum-high intensity.
-Carbonation feels soft and natural, which doesnít impede on the aromatics at play.
-Malts donít offer much apart from a few sugary flavors, but that was to be expected.

Bottle.

phaleslu (6509) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a clear orange-gold with a small but resilient off-white head. Aroma of sweet and caramel malts complement orange and grapefruit citrus, pine, and flowers. Flavor of orange, grapefruit peel, apricot, pine resin, caramel, biscuit, and a bit of floral notes. Medium-bodied, with a juicy, resinous mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Excellent IPA. Not quite White Knuckle, but right there.
