Poured at a good temperature with a nice sized, foamy, frothy, off-white head, with glass coating lace. Aroma is very mild, hop, malt, grapefruit. Flavorís like nose, carbonic tang on top with bitter/sweet right behind. Body and carbonation are perfect. Finish is like flavor, fairly long, and a bit boozy. Great IPA!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Appearance: clear golden, big frothy white head. Aroma: caramel, floral, honeysuckle, citrus, touch of pine. Taste: bitter pine throughout but not tongue scraping, maltiness comes in middle with some floral/citrusy hoppiness, finishes dry bitter with sweet malt. Mouthfeel: slick, oily with low to mid carbonation. Overall: it's pretty good, but not amazing. Pretty malt forward with bitterness. Needs a touch more floral or citrus hoppiness to balance a little better.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle in Breck with the Faj. Poured a golden orange, with a big off-white head and great lacing. Aroma is very malt forward, but has hints of floral hops, earthiness, soap, and light citrus. Taste is sweet caramel and brown sugar, with light touches of earthy hops and soapiness. Mouthfeel is medium with high carbonation. Overall, a little too malty for me, but still decent.

Great IPA here no doubt. Citrus and herbal hops explode off the nose and palate. Nice balanced malt profile provides a light sweetness that keeps it from being abrasive. Bitterness is nice and welcoming. Great stuff.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours clear golden, with generous, lasting head. Caught the citrus (grapefruit) aroma as soon as I opened the bottle. Strong citrus, grapefruit & tangerine flavor. Bitter, hoppy, sour, taste & aftertaste. Hop bitterness a touch too strong.

6/29/12. 22oz bottle via Tim. Clear golden pour with a small khaki head. Light musty and caramel aroma with some cardboard. Bitter malty flavor with bits of citrus and touches of a plant aspect and floral aspects. Maybe a bit old.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 1, 2012 22oz bottle, appears to be bottled in April of 2012 (a "4" written in sharpie on the cap). Served at around 40F.
Pours clear amber with a two finger off-white head that leaves some decent lacing behind and holds a small creamy cap.
Aroma starts with some pineapple and mango, then moves more towards floral hops and caramel malt. Good, but not great strength.
Flavor features floral and resinous hops, a bit of fruit and citrus, decent bready/caramel malt backbone. A hint of sweetness in the middle, but finishes with nice bitterness and a touch of alcohol.
Mouthfeel is medium bodied, oily, good carbonation.
The first sniff was great, but then became more subdued after that. Pretty good IPA, but not blowing me away...

In the bottle from Tacoma Boys: not familiar with this brewery and didnít expect such a high number of reviews. Outstanding hoppy flavor and crisp aftertaste. Not dominated by a high alcohol content like so many hoppy beers. A pleasant golden IPA.
