mcberko (8722) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 19, 2014
On tap at the Porterhouse, pours a cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma brings out piney hops, some buttery notes in there as well. Flavour brings out smooth piney hops, some light butter, and just enough malt to back. Well-constructed, balanced IPA, with a creamy palate. Good stuff.

Dull hazy light blonde, moderate bitterness in a grapefruit forward IPA. Dry finish. Finish is a bit harsh with a dash of yeastiness.

maxwelldeux (4131) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - SEP 8, 2014
Draught in a flight at the brewpub. Pours a clear amber color. I get effectively no aroma on this, which I found disappointing. Taste is moderately bitter and slightly grassy, but I don’t find all that much substance to this one.

fiulijn (16186) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 22, 2014
Draught at the brewery, 6.8% ABV
Hazy golden color, with creamy head. The aroma is hoppy, fruity. The mouthfeel is lean, quite dry; some toffee malt flavor; but the malt is completely hidden by an extreme hopping, very resiny, a bit fruity; the final is maybe just a bit too bitter.
Pleasant, aggressive, not graceful.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Draught @ Brouwers Café:   Orange hued golden, lively carbonation, moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Soft hops, pith, citrus peel, and hops on the nose.   A little green and pithy on the tongue.   Certainly bitter, perhaps too much to one side.   Could use some more sweet citrus or floral notes to balance it out.   Needs a bit more malt backing for my liking.   It is an assertive IPA that is for sure.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Lingering bitter finish, very pithy.   Could use some softening, but its decent.

Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Fresh west coast hop aroma. Medium to light bodied. Crisp citrus cascade flavors. Finish is sharp. Not really balanced but that is ok. Easy drinking brew ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aubrey (3482) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - JAN 25, 2012
Decent IPA, albeit a little sharp. Pours hazy orange with a pillowy head. Smooth texture up front; dry finish. Malt flavors exude cocoa powder and bread dough, but the bold hops definitely take the stage. On the positive side, they burst with citrus rind, flowers and perfume. But on the negative side, they come off a little stark, bracing and astringent, and they leave behind a lingering, plant-stem-like bitterness in the aftertaste. In time, my palate adjusted to the discord, but I still found it to be a little rough around the edges.
