I drank this beer in Bert Grantís 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.

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 Iíve had this year.

22oz bottle. Dark amber gold color. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is grapefruit, fruit and sweet with a touch of wood. A medium bodied IPA. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are grapefruity, citrus and a touch earth/wood. Nice balance. Lots of earthy and herbal characters that go along with a strong hop bitterness. Crisp finish. Nice representation of the Pacific Northwest IPA style. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and crisp. Aftertaste is bitter, yet there is some sweetness as well.

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, whoís 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!
