3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle courtesy of jcwattsrugger.
12oz bottle pours hazy deep copper with off white head. The aroma is sweet with caramel and malts as well as vague citrus hops and a sense of pine hops off in the background. The taste begins a bit tart with grapefruit and orange peel like sharp hop bitterness and only giving up a sliver of ground to malt sweetness from time to time. It mainly stays bitter with citrus hops right to the finish and getting a tad resiny too. Nice bitter IPA. I had it recently on tap too and it seemed to have less tart like acidity than the bottle.

On tap at Sockeye. Light copper color with a nice head and small amount of lace left in the glass. Plenty of citrus and flower aroma. Real smooth taste with the hops overpowering the malt. Nice smooth finish at the back of the mouth. The is a real nice beer.

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.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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...

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
