22oz bottle-Pours a orangish body with a small off white head. Aroma of citrus, hops, and a little malt. Taste of the same with a little bitterness on the back end. Very well balanced without the hops being overbearing. Nice Double.

4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
On tap served in a snifter in PDX. The flavor from initial taste to swallow varied and I would agree with Schultsc comments on taste. "Flavor begins dry with a burst of dark hops flavors and fruit--more stonefruit--along with orange. Malt sweetness follows with some grain flavors. The body is firm but graceful and finishes with some grain flavors and a bit of alcohol warmth." It was a great beer for me on my way home from PDX I stopped by the Brewery on a Saturday and the boys at Ninkasi gave me a pint glass and set me loose towards there taps! Great bunch of guys and an awesome beer. My new favorite!

22 oz bottle. Clear tea colored with a slight, off-white head. Nose is tangerine and caramel, melon and spicy grass. Almost medium with a fine carb tingle that nicely balances the hyped hops. Taste is orange peel and sugar cookie. Bitter quinine finish. Good Double.

Clean. Crisp. Bit of malts. Not as intense as other Double IPAs, but still a solid beer all around.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: OCT 13, 2008 From a bottle on Hendrick’s Hill--thanks Lucy and Jared. Somewhat cloudy medium orange-gold with a very thin, fine, white head. Fruity, grainy malt aromas with peachy yellow stonefruit hops notes and a slight grassiness. Flavor begins dry with a burst of dark hops flavors and fruit--more stonefruit--along with orange. Malt sweetness follows with some grain flavors. The body is firm but graceful and finishes with some grain flavors and a bit of alcohol warmth.

On tap @ Brass in Portland.
Fantastic. It’s hazy copper with a nice glow as it comes across the bar, head not too persistent. Hoppy aromas hit you right off the bat, citrus, graprefruit juice. The beer is well balanced and just drinks awesome.

This poured an orange color with a large white head. The aroma contains perfume, orange peels, and lemons. This was not an over the top IIPA by any means. Slightly bitter with a good dose of malt presence. Some mild oranges and lemons showing in the flavor. Well balanced IPA and overall a pretty good one.
