4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I have to agree I had this one back in July and did not have the pleasure of drinking it out of a proper glass. This is a great tasting beer going down, not to heavy and not to light, but just right. Very hoppy and citrusy, if you liked SN Celebration you will definitely like this.

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.

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.
