Draught @ Kahootz: Fiery golden, fairly clear, moderate off-white head, nice lacing, light carbonation.   Good strong hop nose, very slight earth aspect.   Good balance of hops and malt on the tongue, earthy, a little soily, otherwise good old citrus bitterness.   Fairly full bodied, flavor lasts from start to finish.   Not whimpy and yet not raw.   Solid example!

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)

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.

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.

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?

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JAN 21, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2004 Wow! This is a great IPA. FULL of hops. Aroma is all about hops. Pours a misty orange color with just the right amount of head. Lacing stayed on the glass all the way to the end. I had this from the tap at the brewery and from a growler I took home. Flavor is very well rounded in this beer. Full of hops like an IPA should with a sweet, somewhat fruity finish. Very refreshing on the palate, not too dry, but not too think. One of the best IPAs I've had, and it's at a local brewery!

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.

Strykzone (4965) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 1, 2013
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.

12oz can pours a hazy orange with some frothy, lacing white head. Nose is good, standard, malty, honey, orange, pine, soap. Flavor is the same, solid, lemon, grapefruit, pine, soap, malt, honey. Bitter finish. Spot on for the style.
