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!

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!

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.

@Mountain Beerfest-on tap-pours a thin off white head and copper color. Aroma is dry, bitter hops. Taste is dry, bitter hops (simcoe, summit, a little cascade), token medium malt. Did I say dry? OK carbonation.

This is a great sessionable IPA. All the bases are covered here. Great balance, with lots of ctirus acidity, hoppy bitterness that lends alot of great fruit flavors, with a realy clean malt body that I could stand to have been a little more powerful, but still this is a really well done take on the style.

Growler via scrizz. Opened with a spirited hiss...which is a good start. Pours clear orange caramel color with a thin tight head that settles to a ring around my glass. Pretty nice nose of very tropical fruity. Peppery, pine, grassy hops notes on the end. The flavor is very ’compact’ on the ipa spectrum, by that I mean no flavors are really over powering or stand-outish. Nice malt and bittering up front with some citrus fruit over shadowing and then dusty bittering on the end. Decent stuff that I would like to try fresh. Thanks Clint.

Type: Draft Glass: 23-oz. glass From: Old Chicago in Boise, Idaho Price: $5 (happy hour) Purchased: Dec. 18, 2013 Consumed: Dec. 18, 2013 Misc.: N/A Poured a caramel orange murky color with two fingers of khaki white head when I got it. Tons of thick foamy lacing on the sides. Great retention all the way down. Smelled citrus hops, grapefruit, tangerine, orange, floral hops and sweet caramel. Very good overall. Tasted similar to the nose. Got bitter grapefruit (citrus) hops, orange, caramel, Cascade hops and floral hops. Medium body. Oily-to-creamy texture. Average carbonation. Bitter finish. Just a very good beer. Boise definitely has some good beer.
