650 ml bottle. Pours an amber color with light head. Aromas of grass, citrus, and toast. Flavors of lemongrass, pine, and toasted malts over-ridden by a very strong bitter finish. Seems to be very different from the other ratings...

Bottle - Sweet fruity hops with a great malty caramel backbone. Clear gold with a rich off white head. Very sweet, but bitterness balances well. Like candy and hops, very nice.

Pours a clear dull gold with a thin white head and some lace. Nice malty aroma, light spice, some skunk. Boozy, thin body but good spicy hop bite. Crisp with decent carbonation. A bit unbalanced, but tasty.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Poured clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sour citrus hop and earthy aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. Very good brew.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crisp copper coloured body with a one centimetre tall tan head with a lot of movement in the body - nice. Aroma of bread, yeast, grassy and herbal hops and a decent amount of malt. Medium-bodied; Assertive resinous and medicinal hop flavours with a lot of alpha acids and bitterness, some metallic twang going on at the end and a deep malty finish. Aftertaste shows a good hop bite with a pungent kick of alcohol and metal and a little malt. Overall, a nice IPA with perhaps more of a metal and bitter flavour than hoppy, but good none-the-less. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Bottleworks in Seattle, Washington on 11-January-2013 for US$4.99 sampled at home in [the real] Washington on 19-February-2013.

Bottle from Community Food Co-op - N Forest St, Bellingham, WA
Amber color with orange hue; medium sized creamy head, persistent. Nice hoppy aroma, strong, fruity and resiny; it has a mild but nice manure touch. Good toffee flavor, but with a bit of chewyness too; arrogant hopping, carrying loads of resins and some fruits, providing a mild earthy vein, and leading to a very long final; yet, it has a few notes of freshness.
Bold IPA, with a peculiar character.

Tap at Elliott Bay Lake City
Clear pour, clean flavors. Orange zest and resin. Well-crafted if straight-forward IPA. Malts backgrounded relative to Scullers, and thatís probably a good thing though I see I rated Scullers quite high way back in the day.

3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Now thatís a kick in the head. Tastes so hoppy, itís overwhelming, which makes a great beer to sip when already drunk. Very one dimensional to me; still, worth trying.
