Deep cloudy copper color. Sips piney hop and slight caramel. Middle is kind of watery thin. The 70 ibus are well balanced. Nice local ipa.

Thanks to Frank the Tank for sharing this. A: Pours a copper ale with slight haziness. Less than single finger peanut heat of whipped consistency falls to a medium sheet of the same. No lacing. S: Plenty of fruits up front on the nose. Atypical of a NW IPA, IMO, this would appeal to the east coast or great lakes palate (think 2 hearted, not as good, but along the same lines). Apricots, peaches, pineapple, citrus. Not much resin or pine at all. Solid malt backbone, plenty of caramel/vienna profile. T: More bitter up front than I had presumed provided the aromatics. The beer has the early bitterness on the front of the palate that converts into the release of the sweetness of plenty of medium toast malts, some citrus, meaty fruits. Overall, the malt reminds me more of a stronger Red Ale than an IPA. M: Medium body, maybe a hint light. Medium to light carb. Nothing added or taken away in this category. O: Well done. I see why they chose this among their flagship bottled lineup. Just started seeing this on the east side of WA, and I hope it hits the tap handles soon. I think it will do well on the handles in the area. Again, I think the overall picture of the beer is more or less a hybrid Red and IPA. Cool beer. Serving type: bottle 04-08-2011

Ferris (3785) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 26, 2013
Bottle - Fresh pine and citrus with a candy malt. Cloudy orange with a big beige head. Pine and resin with a nice well balanced bitterness. Finish is dry and resinous. A decent but average IPA.

thegreenrooster (3189) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - OCT 26, 2013
Pour is a dark red with a small head. Aroma is of super sweet malt and fresh pine hop. Flavor is malty and sweet at first. Earthy hop flavor follows with more of a syrupy heavy maltyness. Finish is dry and fleeting. Nice start, but lacking in the finish. Average at best IPA. Way too malt heavy and the hops don’t overpower that malty sweetness.

mar (4806) - Dallas, Texas, USA - OCT 7, 2013
Deep amber pour with a cream head. Nose is doughy malts, lightly bitter, and fresh grapefruit. Easy palate, bitter hops upfront, backed with a chewy malt backbone, and light caramel.

chuckstout (247) - Washington, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Can- Aromas of citrus,pine, resin, tropical fruit sweetness. Pours a Amber/ orange with a nice dense off white head good lacing. Dry, light bodied, good bitterness, a little malt sweetness, more pine/resin.

22415brewery (371) - redmond, Washington, USA - SEP 10, 2013
Pours a medium burnished amber with golden highlights, a tad bit of haze and a vigilant cream colored head. Aroma is primarily orange citrus, old oranges, grapefruit pith, yet earthy and somewhat herbal and dank, some very subdued piney notes lends itself to the background. Flavors of neutral malt with some medium-light caramel sweetness, good carbonation. Firm bitterness lingers and takes on a bit of a harsh aftertaste reminiscent of grapefruit pith. An above average IPA, but nothing distinctly outstanding.

Pretty good IPA. Nice hazy orange appearance. Medium mouthfeel and a decent hoppyness. Like that it comes in a can for the pool club!

DrSilverworm (6274) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 27, 2013
12oz can, from Wine & Brew in Michigan. Totally hazy amber color, lots of particles visible in the body. Thin off-white head, leaves decent bits of lace. Kind of malty, soapy, sweet in the flavor, with an odd old-hops aftertaste in the finish. Doesn’t taste like a fresh IPA, unfortunately (no date stamp on the can). Some spicy citrus hops, but mostly just caramel malt. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, light carbonation, lightly sticky finish. Disappointing IPA.

superspak (2537) - Michigan, USA - AUG 24, 2013
12 ounce can into pint glass, no canning date. Pours cloudy orange amber color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings down the glass. Aromas of big grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, orange rind, tangerine, pineapple, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, and floral earthiness. Very nice aromas with bright hop notes and a moderate malt balance; and good strength. Taste of grapefruit, orange zest, lemon zest, tangerine, orange rind, pineapple, floral, grass, light pine, bread, light caramel, and floral earthiness. Moderate earthy floral bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of citrus, citrus zest, citrus rind, pineapple, floral, grass, light pine, light caramel, bread, and floral earthiness on the finish for a bit. Very nice balance and complexity of hop flavors; with a moderate malt balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly crisp and lightly sticky mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice IPA. All around nice hop flavor balance and complexity with moderate malt balance; and very smooth and crisp to sip on. A very enjoyable offering.
