UPDATED: DEC 7, 2014 "a solid aromatic interpretation of the style. this place had pretty good beers all the way around. good food and service too if you’re in the old town area." 2014 a little funkier than I remember.

Tap. Pours clear orange with a medium, creamy white head, medium retention with excellent lacing. Aroma is fruity esters, floral and citrus hops with biscuit malt. Flavor is moderate hops and bitterness, supporting malt with light fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Sampler @ River City -

Fantastic example of an IPA with boatloads of hoppy goodness from the aroma to the palate. Punchy citrus hops in flavor was really supported well by the great attenuation of the beer and the back seat that malts played. They really let the hops be the star of this beer, and I was quite thankful for that. This and the hefe were my two favorite beers of the afternoon. Loved it.

On tap at West Coast Brewfest 2011. Pours copper with a thin off-white head and a toffee aroma. There is a rich toffee flavor with moderate hop bitterness.

riversideAK (6149) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - SEP 12, 2009
Hazy golden pour, nice foamy head. Soft floral citrus nose. The flavor is lightly floral and grapefruit hops. Biscuity and caramel malt. Nice balance, but nothing stands out.

phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 19, 2008
meidum body, deep copper colour, well integrated hops and a nice big hoppy head. The aroma in the head was strong and floral, by the hoppy aroma, i was suprised that it went down so smooth.

Shadallion (534) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 3, 2001
From a small brewpub in down-town Sacramento. This IPA is nothing spectacular, but it sure hit the spot on a hot August afternoon. Slightly off-balanced citrus flavors, but a nice bitterness to the finish.
