Can sample at a tasting at Troubles’ place. Thanks Denny. Hazy amber, white wave. Dry onion and very hoppy aroma, dry, hoppy, a little fruity-pear taste. Light-to-medium body, soft carbonation, bitter, leafy finish.

THis is a big, hoppy citric IPA. Amber color, clear. sampled at RBSG 04. Even though the commercial description says it’s well balanced, I found it to be a one dimensional hop monster.

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.

Draft: Dark orange / amber pour with a nice frothy head. Solid blend of floral and citrus hops, a little bit of pine, and some malts to balance. A well done IPA from Sockeye!

Pours a light orange/golden color with a small white head. Strong floral and citrus hop nose. Taste starts faintly sweet and malty but quickly fades to a nice hoppy, bitter end. Very smooth with a dry finish and some good hop tastes left behind.

I really enjoyed this (on tap at Papa Joe’s), lots of hop flavor without the overpowering tartness. Hazy amber with a small creamy head, mild pine bitterness, abrupt finish. Enjoyable and highly drinkable.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On Tap at Kahootz.
A hazy medium dark amber with a small white head. Aroma is a strong hops and citric rind. Flavor is a very bold hoppy taste but full and balanced with malts. Fell is heavy and substantial, and the finish is the classic IPA bite. Glad to see a good offering from a local brewer.

RBSG 2004, from a growler: Hazy orange with a small white head. Grapefruit aroma, starts lightly bitter and ends very bitter. Crisp ending with a long aftertaste, full bodied and lively carbonated.
