On tap (isn’t available in bottles), pours amber with nice soapy suds, smells of fir trees, and sweetness. Tastes like pine cones, chronic, and beautiful bitterness. Great hop presence and all around body.

illidurit (2121) - Petaluma, California, USA - APR 1, 2014
On tap at Beercraft. Pours dark tangerine with a light khaki head. Aroma is candied orange with a sort of dusty old graininess. Flavor is pretty similar but there’s a strong soapiness that puts me off.

mcberko (5998) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2013
On tap at Redwood Curtain Brewing, pours a cloudy orange with a small off-white head. Aroma brings out juicy citrusy hops, resin, and just enough malt to back. Flavour is similar, bringing out juicy citrusy hops as the main quality. Just enough malt in the profile to be balanced. Juicy, citrusy and hoppy, leaving a medium astringency. Great IPA.

Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. It poured an amber color with a white head. The aroma was of grapefruit and pine. The taste was of citrus, pine and some tropical fruits. The finish was a little dry and bitter and very well done.

Strykzone (4811) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - NOV 23, 2013
Sampled at ESBLS. Half growler from Hayduke. Some leaked during transit. Some haze in the golden orange beer. No foam. Citrus and tropical fruit aromas. The flavor begins with citrus but it is not bitter. Carbonation might have suffered. That bitterness quickly grows and becomes big. A lot of fruit is tasted. Malts are pale and no caramel is noted. The hops become more floral. I like it.

Tap at The Sea Grill in Eureka, CA. Pours light amber with a slight head. Resin aroma. Med body. Flavor is resin plus a different sort of flavor. Gets fruity. Finishes nicely fruity and bitter.

Wonderful local IPA in the heart of IPA heaven. Managed to stand out in well-crafted but saturated market. Starts crisp and sweet without being too syrup-y. Quenches but leaves you happy and wanting more.

This is available in quite a number of locations in Humboldt County, and is developing quite a following. I get it often at Brick and Fire Bistro, just a few hundred feet from the back gate of my property. This color in the glass is a very clear orange- amber, raises a good white head and leaves light lacing rings. The nose is intense, full of grapefruit and pine. The body is medium and the mouthfeel very clean and satisfying. The flavor is aggressive, with lots of the citrus and pine, but there is tropical fruit there as well. The finish is dry and bitter, but it is also flavorful right down to the last drop. There are a lot of good IPA’s brewed here locally, but this one tops them all with its rich flavors and exceptional balance.
