COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is a traditional filtered Pacific Northwest India Pale Ale. Although golden in color, this is not a light beer. With more than 60 bitterness units it’s got a bite to it, but is well balanced by the sweetness of a 7.4% alcohol by volume brew. This a is a very aggressive tasting beer.

Not Bad. Does have some pine and grapefruit notes as stated below. The flavor gets better at a lower temp. Stays carbinated (Which is a positive for me) Been drinking the same bottle for over an hr. only 12 miles from brewery. U Save store in S Valley has it 7.3% 22 OZ Bottle.

Oak color. Strange nose. Bitter but weak. Could be woody as well. Taste is malty. Sweet. A strange tootsie roll taste. Molasses and pie

brokensail (10738) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 2, 2013
On tap @ Seabright. Orange pour with a white head. Grass, orange, and some pine aromas. A light bread aroma and sweetness. Flavor is bitter grass, pine, and grain. Some orange and lemon peel notes, too. Mild malt sweetness, too.

Blairgus (2586) - California, USA - JUN 9, 2013
8 June 2013, can. Dark yellow. Nose is pine, grapefruit, and sweet alcohol. Thin body and moderately fizzy. Bubble gum, piney, moderate alcohol presence. Rather bitter, lasting finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Ungstrup (29211) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 18, 2010
Draft. An unclear golden beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of citrusy hops - from the CCC series I guess. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, hops, and citrus fruits - especially lemon, leading to a bitter finish.

tekhna (118) - California, USA - SEP 18, 2009
On tap at the brewery. Excellent lacing, poor aroma, generic color, bitter, not much late-kettle hop addition. Pretty generic. Not bad, not good. Just sort of there.

IrishBoy (3821) - Bakersfield, California, USA - AUG 14, 2009
Draft at the Bistro’s IPA Fest. Nose has floral hops mixed with a light wheaty banana ester. Clear yellow with a small lightly lacing off white head. Flavor is lightly bitter and fruity like a german hefe!

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 28, 2009
On tap. Hazy and opaque orange with an off-white head leaving laces. Lightly citrusy hop aroma. Medium body, not much of a malt feel but fruit and caramel and an extremely dry and hoppy finish. 090709

yespr (30902) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUL 24, 2009
From tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Solid hoppy fruity with a mix of apricot and mild grapefruit. Sweet and solid grapefruity hops flavoured. Slight downplayed bitterness at first, but slowly growing.

At the brewpub i picked up a groler to take back home. Nice color, poured with a two finger head. A blast of hoppiness to the nose and senses. Of course had to have a second pint of this! People at the bar were very friendly!
