I drank this beer in Bert Grant’s pub. He is the godfather of microbrews. A scientist and contractor for major breweries, he petitioned to repeal old prohibition laws prohibiting breweries from having a tap room. He is said to have carried a vial of hop oil around with him for the weaker beers he drank.

Serving: from tap at Snipes Mountain Microbrewery and Restaurant
Aroma: moderate, cat piss-like hoppy aroma.
Appearance: very small, white, initial head with fair lacing and fully diminishing longevity. Hazy, dark-yellow body.
Taste: moderately bitter initial flavor and moderately sour, citrusy finish with long duration.
Palate: medium body with dry texture and soft carbonation.
Overall: excellent. Great aroma, well-balanced unique taste. I’d like to drink this again.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
9/8/07 On draught at the brewery. Aroma is grassy PNW hop forward with lots of citrus and a light sweet malt note to balance. Appearance is a hazy golden copper with a solid off-white head. Flavor is strangely complex and encompasses all of the tongue. It is very complex hop forward with a dominant citrus character. There is a good sweet malt character balance to keep it easy drinking. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with medium carb feel and a clean, but not dry, finish. Overall, one of the best IPAs I’ve had this year.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Floral hop aroma backed by caramel malt. Something of an apricot color with a white head that filmed while lacing strangely. Medium bodied, almost creamy. Mild carbonation. Floral hop, maybe a bit of citrus, with mild caramel sweetness. As the sweetness goes, the finish is hop, hop, hop. This is great.

A gift from my friend Jason, who’s cousin received it on a flight! In a bomber, Nice! Mellow drinker for an IPA, but this sample was fresh, and lots of nice hop flavor, with that said, its an easy drinker, without a "Hopbomb" flavor to it, very balanced, and enjoyable, Thanks Jay!

Bought a 12 Fl. Oz. bottle of this from The Beer Shoppe in Yakima, WA for $1.90. Poured from the Blue/Green Labeled bottle w/ a cattle skeleton head on the front into a 16oz Arcadia IPA Pint Glass. Has no freshness date to be found on the bottle.
Aroma- Nice hops, citrus fruits, and light piney characters. Not dry hopped but sweeter on the nose.
Appearance- Pours a 1.5 finger head that has good head retention. Has a reddish copper colored body with semi-haziness. Leaves good lacing behind.
Flavor- Both citrus and light pine come through once again but very easy. Medium bitterness at the finish and sweet. No character overpowers any other one.
Mouthfeel- Light-Medium Bodied, Medium Carbonation, Smooth, and has a sweet, hop flavor on the finish.
Overall Impression- A very fresh and light hopped up IPA! Enjoyed how easy going it was for the time of day I was enjoying this. Would like to have more from this brewing company!

Draft at Chuck’s. From notes. Pours dark amber. Resinous aroma, backed up by caramel and bread. Taste: Light caramel sweetness, bitter pine finish that lasts. Medium body, creamy and oily texture. All around, not bad.
