Tasted from bottle -- 22/10/10 on the cap. Tasted March 2, 2009. Gorgeous hop aroma of pine and some grapefruit. Great golden color. It states 6.9% alcohol and you can get the bite with the hops on the finish. But it balances nicely with the malty sweetness. It is hard to stop drinking it. I am very impressed and love this beer. Wish it was a little cheaper to be able to enjoy more often, but it is still well worth it.

Bottle. One of my absolute favorites but from this bottle unfortunately not as fresh as I´ve had it before. Color is amber with a light yellow head. Aromas of gooseberry, lemon and pine. Taste of lemon,and herbs. Very fresh with a long lasting bitterness and good carbonation, medium body.

330ml bottle. Thick fluffy head of sandy coloured foam. Solid amber and honey coloured base. Caramel and butterscotch aroma that is very fragrant and inviting. Full flavour with mild bitterness and lingering on the palate. Very nice.

Pours a nice golden color with a foamy head. Has nice citrus taste which compliments the fresh strong hop taste. A very nice west coast style IPA. Purchased it in a growler at Holiday beverage. My biggest complaint is they ran out of it.
