8oz sample at the Taphouse Grill. Pours orangey-copper with a white head. Aroma has pine and flowery hops with citrus and some caramel. Taste is of pine needles, flowery spices, grapefruit with some caramel back. Finishes bittersweet. A bit rough and the pieces do not come together as well as they sound.

Shiny and clear gold with a large pale blonde head, falls quietly into the glass.
Intense, earthy nose.
Medium body but intense flavor, good length. Very bitter but well balanced with malt. Grapefruit pith, savoury taste.

Pours a copper gold with a thick white head. Aroma of bitter hops, reminds me of homebrew hop pellets. Taste follows but the malt comes in strong. Balanced malt and hops. Not over the top in body, pretty easy to drink. Not as bitter as I'd like but it was really cool for what it is.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
It has a bright orange colored body, looks thin, with a bright white head. It has an aroma of slightly stanky hops and is bold, solid and thick. Itís more bitter at a warmer temperature, but easy to drink, strongly hopped late in the boil, and has barely enough caramel to handle the bitterness and thinness of the beer. Still, thin and potent.

A very delicious IPA. I had a sample platter and all there beers are great. Especially the Hefe. I bought one bomber to take home. I wish I had bought more.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap @ Taphouse Grill, Seattle. Hazy amber with a dense, creamy head that leaves some lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel, citrus and bubble gum. Flavor is very sweet with a ruff bitterness. Medium body with a muddy texture. This could be old, overly sweet with an old hop flavor, ugh.

Received in a recent trade. The problem with getting IPAís that arenít dated is that this one may have been slightly old, not too old, but the weeklong shipping in the heat of the summer certainly canít help.
Nice dark orange color and a very solid hoppy nose. A very large frothy head on an average pour. The malt comes through a little more than I expect in the flavor. Not a bad beer, but certainly not something better than I could get fresh locally. I would guess if I had this at the brewpub it would be excellent.
