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.

douglas88 (7354) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 8, 2008
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.

Nose practically non-existent. Flavor not much better. Bitterness but no hop flavor or aroma, little fruit. Malty, not in a good way. Just tastes old. This is an out of market beer we got for a festival. You think they wouldn’t send old ----. You’d be wrong.

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?

b3shine (6763) - Indiana, USA - FEB 26, 2014
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.

after4ever (6749) - Brier, Washington, USA - JUL 6, 2015
Draft at Hop n Hound. Pours a cloudy medium amber with a dense and creamy white head. Big c-hop nose, nice caramel maltiness under an intense wash of fresh green leaves and pine; like a sun-baked forest floor that’s showing fresh scent. Creamy medium body, a bit grainy, lively carb. Darkly toasted caramel under a bright leafy wash of c-hop woodsy notes. Long crisp finish with earthy accents. Solid IPA.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2007
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!

Sledutah (6103) - 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.
