12 oz. can from Buckeyeboy. Thanks again! This one pours a rather dark golden orange with a stable off white head. The aroma is a good, standard piney, grapefruit, hints of caramel IPA. The flavor is the same. Good body, not too much caramel malt. Solid bitterness. Summer fruit, pine… strong finish. Nice one.

12 ponce can from Hayduke. A hazed and coppery pour. A big off whote fluffy head takes its time to fade and sticky lacing remains. A nice and clasdic west coast IPA aroma with caramel, citrus and pine. A big biting bitterness kicks in early. It is somehow multi layered bitterness. A rich feel. The hops are citrus including grapefruit with pine. Yeast is kind of bready. My only knock on this beer is that the bitterness almost over powers the flavors. It is not a shrinking violet beer.

This poured a lighter orange color with a beige head. Aroma was of orange and peachy hops, with light pine to go with it, as well as some caramel malt. Flavor was much the same, fairly bitter, but decent amount of hop flavor too it. Think this one was a bit old and still pretty solid.

Into a pint glass. Half finger of head on a cloudy, dark straw colored body.
Smell is citrus and pine.
Taste has a strong bitterness with mild malt. Good balance.
Crisp texture with moderate carbonation and medium body.
A solid IPA with a good dose of bitterness that’s balanced nicely.

tap at brewpub August 2012-man, this place is crazy!! It was Boise State Football night so everybody in the place was going nuts! Pours dark orange with a hint of haze with a small eggshell fluffy head. nose is piney woody hops straight up C hops. Flavors follow suit-tons of pine, resin and lasting speriment like bitterness. damn this is bitter-lasts forever! Very dry and lush body with nice carbonation. I love the huge pine here-very much my type of IPA. Textbook example here! Awesome!

Boy I sure miss my San Diego selection but this beer is pretty darn good. It has everything you want in an IPA hops little bit of citrus and really nice smell to it.

Draft at the brewpub. Light amber in color, drawing you in. Very well laced head, laddering down the glass. This is a yummy west coast IPA, focused on a nice citrus-blossom character. Good stuff. (#4676, 7/7/2012)

I am a huge fan of IPA’s and also drinking local if I can. So when I am wanting a good local IPA, Sockeyes is second to none in the valley.
