Probably my favorite naked city beer. Copper color and unfiltered. Smooth creamy texture. Citrus and and orange hop aromas. Fair amount of malt. Caramel and candy sweet. Great.

Draft at Naked City Brewery in Greenwood. Rating #2000 as it happens, as the Seahawks were rolling to a victory over the 49rs. Darker brown-gold. Soft green hop. Malty backbone souring - bitter hops. Drying bitter. Solid.

Prufrockstar (820) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 7, 2014
Draft at Fiddler’s Inn. Pours clear copper with very little head (4 oz taster filled to the brim). Despite the lack of head space, this packed a big, fresh pine aroma, like a pine tree up my nose. In a good way -- not the way an actual pine tree up my nose would feel, which would be horrible. Taste: Restrained sweetness, just the right level of bitterness, with a lightly toasted finish. Creamy texture, medium body. Overall: the best beer of the night for me in a line-up of other hoppy beers. Very nice!

Dogbrick (7634) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Sample at the brewpub. The beer pours a hazy deep amber color with a medium off-white head that recedes gradually. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, sweet fruit and malt. Medium-bodied with a moderately bitter fruity hops character and notes of toasted malt and pine. The finish is hoppy with a lingering fruity aftertaste. Above average overall.

On tap. Clear amber color with ivory head. Nice spicy, skanky hop aromas with tropical fruit, pale malt. medium body, average carbonation. Spicy, skanky, tropical fruit flavors with a solid pale maltage---very tasty

BillKismet (3321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Bronzed body with nice airy, lacey head. Puissant hop nose with a bit of hop hair to it.Warmly fruity, passionfruit, citrus, and some cat urine mixed in. Smooth, viscous body, Sweet and powerful. A surfeit of citrus flavors overflow onto the palate, with orange and passionfruit dominating. Generates a bit of taste buzz to the palate. Bitter orange finish.

Amber in color, clear with a thin head. Super hops flavor and finish. Nice malt build with a good finish. I loved this IPA.

after4ever (6069) - Brier, Washington, USA - APR 20, 2013
Draft at ncbc. Pours a hazy burnished dark amber with a loose and sudsy whitish head. Big sweet nose--showing pine and grapefruit and a bit of orange peel. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty darkened caramel on the mid palate, washing out into a dryly bitter resinous close.

trevor211 (1298) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 7, 2010
On tap at Naked City. Pours a deep, transparent amber, with surprisingly little head. Wow is this ever fruity! Super sweet nose, with caramel-covered fruits. Hops start to shine in the flavor - there’s plenty in here - but I feel like this is off-balance. Let those hops take the show in a big IPA! Covers the 7.5% *too* well - this one is sticky sweet. I’d love it if they held back on the malts a bit (or used a variety that was a little lighter / less sticky), and added a bit more carbonation. Good effort - it’s a very tasty beer - but the recipe could probably use some tweaking.
