Ibrew2or3 (7091) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 10, 2013
Share courtesy of MikeJslc. It pours with a clear copper body that supports a creamy light tan colored head. The aroma offers up sharp citrus notes, some mango and a bit of earthy black tea at the back end of the draw. The taste delivers malt sweetened lime like citrus as well as grapefruit and then a bit of mango tropical fruitiness. Nice crisp IPA.

Tap. I thought this was pretty good. Typical citrus and pine but a pretty solid candy sweetness for balance. Smooth and drinkable.

fiulijn (15260) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 6, 2014
Bottle from Total Wine, Lynnwood, 6% ABV; bottles 09/02/14, less than 3 months ago
Hazy light amber color with medium sized head. The aroma is delicate and nice; it blends, malt, fudge, vanilla, and a flowery hint, chamomile. Smooth mouthfeel; lean caramel flavor with light residual sweetness; the flavor is not exceptional; it has a correct bitterness level, some timid hop resins, less fruits, overall the hops are not shining here.
Ordinary IPA.

Masterkush7 (567) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 18, 2014
Aroma is light toasted malts and some earthy hops. Taste is bold malty sweetness kind of grainy with some citrus and earthy hop bitterness win the finish which is quite strong. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

as a beer, this isn’t offensive, but as a west coast orgonian ipa, this beer is just plain ridiculous. almost hopless, save for the bitter aftertaste. how this is getting a B on beeradvocate is beyond me. must be 13 homers that have rated it. 40 ibus for an IPA? why bother? english pale ales are higher!

Bright orange gold pour. Aroma tangerine, herbal, toast, wood. Tastes minerals, herbs, pine, grapefruit. grains in the background. Bit of resin and fine carb on the palate.

Citrusy nose. Flavor is same plus flashes of dank, pine, resin, touch of butter, and a light crackery malt base.

maxwelldeux (3794) - Everett, Washington, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle. Pours a crystal clear light amber color with a moderate white head on there. Nose is lightly grassy, but not too much aroma to it. Taste is slightly bitter and light, and without much substance. Meh.

Sarlacc83 (946) - Oregon, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Bottle. A: Clear orange color with a dense white foam head. Good lacing. N: Spruce, leaves, grapefruit, orange syrup, crystallized sugar, biscuit, and some mariijuana hints. Hint of spice. T: Pleasingly bitter with a backdrop of sweetness and fruit. M: Creamy carbonation, resinous, medium body. Alcohol is restrained. O: Big leafy IPA. The classic hops are identifiable, and they lend a delicious fruity bend to this one. Seems like there’s a commonality with Sculpin, but I wouldn’t swear to it.

22 oz bottle- Pours clear golden with a two finger head thad slowly reduces and a geyser of carbonation bubbles. Aroma is sweet malt, grapefruit hops, some pine, a little spiciness. The taste is light malt, grapefruit, hops, floral, dry finish. Body is medium and carbonation is fairly high. Enjoyable PNW IPA.
