Our cult favorite, deep gold American pale ale. Big citrus and floral aromas, malt flavors, and intense hoppy finish.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - OCT 24, 2008
Tap at Oregon brewpub.
Pours thin with a small head that has ’’mold spots.’’ Aroma is a nice, strong, orangey grapefruit. Flavor is uninspired, paint-by-the-numbers bitter grapefruit. Average mouthfeel. Just sits there, like a kid bored at the opera.

SHIG (4670) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Bottle: Poured a coppery amber color with a off white head. The aroma was hoppy and some citrus to it. The taste was a lovely hoppy tange, this was a nice beer throught with just enough mildness to balance out.

hotstuff (4864) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 20, 2008
Draft at Steelhead BC, Eugene, OR. Off-white small head that mostly diminished, next to no lacing, no carbonation observed, slightly hazy, and a gold hue. Nose was hoppy, citrus and some pine notes. Flavor was malt, hoppy and citrus. Smooth mouthfeel and light-medium body. Quaffable, decent brew for the style. Worthy of a try!

AleDrinker (1089) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - NOV 4, 2007
Brilliant IPA here. Pours golden, slightly hazy with a medium head. Leaves plenty of lacework on the glass. Flavors are potent of citrus and berries. Flavor is slightly sweet but not cloying. Finish is very smooth and bitter. Excellent.

fordest (2455) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - AUG 26, 2007
Draft at Eugene Brewery. Hazy apricot color with citrus aromas with notes of mango. Flavor was hoppy citrus and grass. Not bad.

thedm (5668) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 4, 2007
This draft brew from the brewery in Eugene poured a head of finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a hazy uncarbonated dark orange colored body. The mild aroma was hoppy and malty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The weak flavor contained notes of hops and mild astringency. A poor ipa that I would not buy again.

Sampled at the Brewhouse in Burlingame. Had a good flavor with a fair use of hops that really lead it to be a good brew. I prefered the IIPA, but this one is good.
