Comes out of the tap an attractive, somewhat hazy dark amber. I’m not sure about the head, since the server didn’t allow for much of one, but it did leave some scattered lacing. Aroma is strongly hoppy and evergreen with an undertone of sour orange. Flavor is evergreen hoppy, like any really good IPA, and has a sour citrus undertone that is mainly orange with hints of grapefruit. Texture is quite fizzy and edgy, leaving a nice hoppy tingle.

Ibrew2or3 (7252) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 26, 2010
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.

Sledutah (5567) - Utah, USA - OCT 23, 2009
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.

riversideAK (5726) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - SEP 9, 2009
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.
