From Skyview. Dark copper with a thin head. Aroma of slightly cheesy hops. Light orange and citrus hop flavor. Finishes a bit on the buttery and butterscotchy side.

Big hops aroma. Cloudy gold color, and a large, rocky white head. It is a fine looking beer. Unfortunately the flavor is not as good as the aroma or the appearance. Very light citrus hops. It might be old. Medium palate. I think it would be really good and flavorful fresh. Thanks to Skyview for sharing.

Skyview (5477) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - SEP 10, 2008
Picked up a 22-oz bomber from the Raccoon Lodge, west of downtown Portland, OR. Pours a hazy orange amber brew with a thick and fizzy off-white head that has some nice retention and sticky lacing. Aroma of light caramel malt, toffee, grapefruit zest, some dry grassy and piney hops, and some citrus zest. Taste is medium bodied, plenty of carbonation with flavors of iced tea, light caramel malt, some toffee and dry biscuity malt. Finish has a mild and lingering bitterness with a dry iced tea aftertaste that slowly disappears. Bottle was over a year old, yet still retained a lot of its IPA character.

Sampled a pint of this one on draught at the brewpub in Portland, OR. This beer pours to a slightly hazy, deep golden to orange color, with a thick, creamy, white head, and a good carbonation. The nose in outstanding, with big, pungent aromas, of pine, lemon, and grapefruit. The palate is firm, with good pale and biscuit malt flavors, with a very good, tangy, grapefruit hop flavor. This beer finishes with good pale malt and hop flavors up front, then ends with a very, long, dry, very zesty piney/cirtus hop bitterness that lingers for quite some time. This beer just screams PNW hops, and is what AIPA is truly all about. Big hop aromas, big hop flavors, big hop bitterness. Packed with character, yet still a very drinkable beer that you could enjoy a few pints of, and a beer that would work well with the spicy fare on the menu.

Bottle courtesy of a travelling friend. This brew pours a murky orange color with a medium thick and foamy light beige head that dissipates slowly. Top ring of lacing with spots underneath. Huge butterscotch aroma blows off pretty quickly, leaving a floral hoppy nose. Medium-bodied and moderately hoppy with butterscotch and malt undertones. The finish is dry and equal parts hops and malt. Pretty enjoyable overall.
