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.

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)

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Light orange gold color. Medium head. Aroma is grapefruity and floral. A medium bodied IPA. Malts are fruity and sweet. Hops are grapefruity and floral. Nicely balanced. Very smooth taste despite the bitterness. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

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.

12 oz can shared by beerpig317. Pours a hazy dark golden color with a small off white head. The aroma and flavor have faded hops, some citrus, some candy sweetness, mild bitterness. Would this have popped more fresh?

Can to snifter (shared by beerpig317). Looks good; a hazy vibrant orange with thin off-white head that steadily dissipates into sticky lacing. Smells of bitter hops and sweet pale malt. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Maybe it’s getting a little old; seems like it’s fading.

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.

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.
