Lovely floral aroma, nice orange-ish color, solid head and HOPS UP FRONT & through to finish. A bit sharp on the git go, but the very pleasant malts come through even if you have to look for them a little. Hop yeh! After the delightful Tsunami will say these guys are 2 for 2 in my book.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear amber body, thin off-white head. Floral, herbal and strong hops aroma with caramely malts, also notes of pine. The strong hops carried over to the body with a very bitter citrus rind finish. Biscuity, caramely malts were amped up just enough to balance the hops. So standard an IPA though...Thanks Bill (batkins) for the bottle!

mmm, creamy sweet hop aroma, very nice creamy head, beige color. pours a lighter amber color fairly clear with good carbonation. Taste is quite good, awesome hop presence in this one, nice aromatic and floral taste to it along with great citrus hop taste, ends nice and bitter with a nice full malt body.

UPDATED: OCT 11, 2005 Clear and golden with a creamy head. Very inviting nose -- hoppy, with a little yeast. Rich texture. Malts exuded with cookies and bread dough. Hops were very aromatic; notes of wafty flowers, spices, fresh-cut grass, and citrus (sweet orange and zippy lemon). Tremendous balance. Mouthwatering IPA. One of the best out there. Seriously.

Now this is how an IPA should be! Beautiful fluffy pour with tons of lacing. A cascade aroma you could sniff all day - herbs, pine and grass are abundant. Very tangy hop bite grabs and takes hold of you, starts fairly fruity but ends spicy and tingly. Hops leave a nice, resinous, pine cone residual. Definately a winner. Thanks to Derek Arent for the brew.

Bottle pours a slightly hazy golden, large foamy white head, extremely light carbonation, with attractive lacing.   Fresh, sweet hop aroma on this one.   Subtle pine/spruce notes as well.   Sweet & spicy hop flavor up front, but followed by some tartness and semi-sweet citrus like bitterness thats fairly reminiscent of a barleywine.   Fairly round body, good mouthfeel.   Finishes with lots of hop bitterness.   This one was somewhat malty, but not enough for my tastes.   If you like straight foward hop bitterness, this one is for you!

Ok beer bought while camping near Newport,OR.
Comes in the usual plain brown Pelican bomber.
Very nice looking ale when poured, its slighly darker than the usual IPA..almost amber with a huge creamy/frothy off white head
Wonderful spicy hppy aroma.Very pungent but extra fresh.
Mm this is a "hop heads"IPA..very strong Cascade hop presence..though there is a noticable malty background..but really its hops,hops, hops on this baby.
Very nice and smooth on the palate,nice warm after taste.
Nice and drinkable especiually after drinking "swill".

Pours a hazy amber with a tall white head. Lots of citrus hop aroma. Taste was well balanced with a tons of bitterness toward the end and a faint hint of grapefruit in the finish. A good smooth IPA.
