Dark amber color. Orange pekoe and apples in the nose. Malt driven lots of hops in the background. Modest bitter finish. Pretty standard PNW IPA.

deyholla (10216) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Sampled from the tap at the brewery. Pours a clear amber orange with a tan head that dissipates to the edges and laces. Aroma has bitter citrus with a touch of earthiness and a bread backbone. Flavor has a bitter citrus and pine note with a bit of earthy grain backing.

shoulderbroken (3831) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JUN 14, 2015
Tap at Grub. Quite tropical, bit of pine and resin, bit pineapple and mango maybe, bit of sharpness that is maybe reminiscent of grapefruit. Bit of malty sweetness. Alright. Lots of bits.

Zeswaft (1671) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 21, 2014
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.

luttonm (4730) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 19, 2014
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 (1995) - Cincinnati, Ohio, 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 (11614) - 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.

AmEricanbrew (6737) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - AUG 13, 2013
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 (3861) - 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.
