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.

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.

On Tap at brewpub: Cloudy gold with a case of lacing all over the glass. As one would expect, the aromas and tastes were hops, juniper berries with a nice, initial bitter-taste. The feel is creamy and pleasant. Perhaps, the best Idaho micro IPA.

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!

5000 (6180) - 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!

Draught @ Harry’s - Nice 1/2" white head on a beautiful pale orange hazy pour. Aroma of hay and grapefruit with a dark sugar malt background. This is one bold IPA, floral bitterness on the front end, straight bitter on the back. The middle is a wonderfully built malty, citrusy, spring-like balance of subtle sweet and astringent sour. I was very impressed, would definitely drink again...

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.

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.

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.

12 once can thanks to summer 13 secret santa. Nice amber pour. Good aroma. Bitter and hoppy. Good malt build. Pine. Simply a well done IPA all in all.
