Lots of grapefruit and floral notes on the nose. Very citrusy. Some light sweetness underneath. Golden amber pour, lots of lace and a decent creamy head. Citrus - grapefruit, a good deal of this. Some floral notes. Soft malts add balance, but this is a fantastic hoppy drinkable ipa. I could only imagine if this were right off tap. 1 month old growler, but still awesome.

grower from ditmer, thanks! Dank earthy aroma, musty citrus, like odd cologne. Light bronze. juicy and earthy. Citrus and wet on one side, woodsy and dry on the other. Light bodied, lingering dry aspirin finish.

Growler via scrizz. Opened with a spirited hiss...which is a good start. Pours clear orange caramel color with a thin tight head that settles to a ring around my glass. Pretty nice nose of very tropical fruity. Peppery, pine, grassy hops notes on the end. The flavor is very ’compact’ on the ipa spectrum, by that I mean no flavors are really over powering or stand-outish. Nice malt and bittering up front with some citrus fruit over shadowing and then dusty bittering on the end. Decent stuff that I would like to try fresh. Thanks Clint.

On tap at Sockeye. Great color and aroma. Not as citrusy as I expected. Nice head. Almost a 3-D color in my glass. Delicious but not spectacular.

This is a great sessionable IPA. All the bases are covered here. Great balance, with lots of ctirus acidity, hoppy bitterness that lends alot of great fruit flavors, with a realy clean malt body that I could stand to have been a little more powerful, but still this is a really well done take on the style.

On tap at the brewery. See through golden orange pour with great retention. Aroma is fairly weak, mainly hinting at whichever malt is being used with a tiny blast of citrusy hops. Flavor brings it a bit more proper with a weaker malt up front and through the body, but where this gets interesting is the hop profile really kicks in RIGHT at the finish and through the end. Lots of bittered business going on. Fairly resiny. A decent example, but was hoping for a bit more per all your ratings...

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2008 On tap at the NABA festival 2008 and recommended by Jordan. Pours a light orange with a touch of red and a very nice thick white head. The aroma is full of hops, both pine and grapefruit like, and some light honey. The flavor was bursting out, a smooth and sweet hops that has a ton of flavor and meshes well with the light malt and other flavors. A definite stand out beer. Quality IPA.

Draught @ Harry’s - Nice 1/2" white head on a beautiful pale orange hazy pour. Aroma of hay and grapefruit with a dark sugar malt background. This is one bold IPA, floral bitterness on the front end, straight bitter on the back. The middle is a wonderfully built malty, citrusy, spring-like balance of subtle sweet and astringent sour. I was very impressed, would definitely drink again...

3/7/08 on draught at the brewpub. Aroma is extremely citrusy with a somewhat grassy backbone; sweet malt is just barely noticeable. Appearance is hazy gold with a moderate maintained off white head. Flavor is tangy as well, but not as strong as the aroma. Here the earthy and grassy flavors come through easier, as well as a respectable sweet pale malt background that balnces nicely. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a light spritzy carb feel. Overall, complex and well balanced, a must try for someone who loves more citrusy than harsh IPAs.
