On tap, pours a cloudy yellow gold with a thin head that laces well. Nice hop-citrus dominate nose, some dry grass and pine. Attack is grassy, pine, some bright sugar notes. Clean finish. Yumm.

I really enjoyed this (on tap at Papa Joe’s), lots of hop flavor without the overpowering tartness. Hazy amber with a small creamy head, mild pine bitterness, abrupt finish. Enjoyable and highly drinkable.

Picked this up for the Co-op in Moscow, Idaho. Great looking label on a 12 oz can. Great hoppy explosion off the top with a smooth following. Dry hoppiness brings up the rear and sticks around for quite sometime. Great ipa. Cheers!

12 oz can- Pours hazy orange with over a two finger creamy white head that leaves ice cream float like appearance. Aroma is hops man, spicy hops, pine and citrus dominate the aroma. The taste is bitter up front, resinous piney hops follow and the finish is bitter again. Body is fairly light which doesn’t bother me, carbonation is good. Overall good IPA, very sessionable if it weren’t for the 6.3%.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12 oz can from a six pack bought at Super 1 in Rathdrum, ID. Pours hazy cantaloupe with a large cream-colored ice cream float-looking head with excellent retention; after it recedes a little bit, some decorative lace is left behind. Aroma is toasty, crackers, piney, grapefruit, catty. Taste starts out a little sweet before a nice bitterness sets in and lingers. Body is thin for style, which is fine with me; creamy mouthfeel. Basic PacNW IPA, but very well done.

Its a liquid tree! Well balanced but hop forward with a strong pine / resin profile, pairs well against the darkesque malty body.

Got in a trade with TheFugitive. 12 ounce can into pint glass, no canning date. Pours hazy orange amber color with a 2-3 finger dense and fluffy cream colored head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, orange zest, tangerine, lemon zest, pine, floral, grass, caramel, and floral earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great complexity of hop notes with a moderate malt balance; and good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, orange zest, tangerine, orange rind, floral, pine, grass, caramel, and floral earthiness. Good amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, pine, floral, grass, caramel, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity of hop flavors with a moderate malt balance under the bitterness; and zero cloying bitterness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy, crisp, and sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent IPA. All around great balance and complexity of hop flavors with moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.
