3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at the brewpub. Same exact color as the cast pale ale, bronze-red. Thin top. Nice orange blossom aroma. Thick and viscuous, this borders on a DIPA/IPA with a body-builder’s physique of a beer and a rich, malty punch. Advertised the day I was there as 7.1% ABV. (#3402, 4/10/2008)

Orange gold color. Medium head. Aroma is malty, fruity and a touch floral. A medium bodied IPA. Malts are nutty and sweet. Touch of fruit. Hops are grapefruity and piney. Smooth taste. Balance is a touch towards the hops. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Poured from the tap to a light reddish-orange with a thin white head that lingered thru mid glass and left decent lacing. Nose was a nice crisp citrusy grapefruit, mouthfeel was full and tingly and the flavor even accentuated the grapefruit more than the nose. This all led to a full long finish.
A pleasant surprise from this out of the way place.

Draft courtesy of Cameron, thanks! Decent nose, decent piney bitterness, this one stands up to many American IPAs. Worth a try.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Big hop nose, amber color, low frothy head. Fairly big body--enough to support the stingy hop bitter end. Smooth. Good American IPA.

Thick and somewhat smokey? Not sure this is my favorite IPA even here. Liking other ones better.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light yellow, sweet apricot and lemons, some sweet hops, nice body, medium texture... light with respect to other west coast IPAs, a good summer IPA heavy on the sweet citrus.
