12 ounce can thanks to buckeyeboy. Thanks! Pours a hazed copper with a big white head of foam. Aroma is herbal and citrussy. Smells really nice. Some pine bitterness comes out in the taste and really dries the beer out. The aroma is where this beer really shines.

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.

Pours a light golden orange color with a small disappearing head. Aromas of citrus hops, sweet malts, and a hint of fruit. Flavors of grapefruit, orange, with subtle hints of caramel.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2013 I first got this on draft at Si Bueno in McCall, ID. Clear amber with white head. Nose of citrus and pine. Medium body. Smooth mouthfeel. Flavor is nicely bitter and the finish is dry. Excellent. More recently I got this in a can (via six pack) again in McCa;ll, ID. This shows great craft beer can come in a can.

Got in a trade with TheFugitive. 12 ounce can into pint glass, no canning date. Pours hazy orange amber color with a 2-3 finger dense and fluffy cream colored head with fantastic retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, orange zest, tangerine, lemon zest, pine, floral, grass, caramel, and floral earthiness. Damn nice aromas with great complexity of hop notes with a moderate malt balance; and good strength. Taste of big grapefruit, orange zest, tangerine, orange rind, floral, pine, grass, caramel, and floral earthiness. Good amount of floral/pine bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, pine, floral, grass, caramel, and floral earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity of hop flavors with a moderate malt balance under the bitterness; and zero cloying bitterness after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a creamy, crisp, and sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is an excellent IPA. All around great balance and complexity of hop flavors with moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth and crisp to drink. A very enjoyable offering.

Sockeye IPA dagger falls is a nice copper pour with a fruity citrus aroma. It has a soft pillowy mouthfeel. Very pithy & bitter at first but with a smooth and fruity finish.

Nate (4171) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 23, 2007
Draught at brewery. Great hoppy nose. Floral and sweet with fresh apricots. Great malty presence that balances nicely with the hops. Clear amber gold with foamy lacing head. Medium body with light carbonation. Mild sweet malts to start followed by great bitter hoppiness, fresh and juicy. Floral with grapefruit and apricots. Bit bitter end large bitter after. Slightly on the bitter side and a bit off balance with the malt character.

Hazy burnished gold color out of the can with a sticky lasting off white head. Big fresh citrus hop nose with some hop flower notes. Definitely a hop forward beer with orange peel, red grapefruit, some tropical fruit sweetness and a grassy finish. Some caramel sweetness under it all. Tasty IPA.
