On tap at Walking Man. Color was amberish. Aroma was a nice balance of malt, hops and an overall fruitiness. Flavor was caramel and fruit with a bit of a floral bite in the finish. For me, this seemed a bit less hoppy than the knuckledragger. Drinkable for the style.

Draft @ Horsebrass Pub. An excellent IIPA. These guys really know how to brew high gravity brews a la Rodger Davis. Excellent job Jacob!

egajdzis (5336) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2009
Poured a clear amber color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malts, brown sugar, citrus, floral hops, and a bit of pine. Taste of caramel, honey, light citrus, some grapefruit, but a medium sweet finish. Alcohol was covered.

Mason jar shared by hopdog. Pours a deep amber with golden orange notes and a medium off white head. Aroma of caramel, toasted malt, nuts, floral and light pine and citrus notes. Flavor of iced tea, caramel, floral, light pine and citrus.

hopdog (8940) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 18, 2009
Mason Jar acquired in trade with riversideAK (from the Uber Tavern). Thanks! Poured a deeper and slightly hazy amber color wtih a larger sized off white head. Aromas of fresh floral hops, earthy, and pine. Tastes of the same floralness, toasted caramel, pine, and some citrus. Alcohol content well hidden. Some lacing left on the glass.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - FEB 17, 2009
On tap at Concordia Ale House in Portland. Hazy golden pour with a puffy white head. Surprisingly hefty caramel malt backbone with a huge citrus and pine hop explosion at the front and a nice bitter finish. Wonderful flowery aroma with a slight pine note. Extremely tasty IIPA and I hope to sample more from this brewery ASAP.

theisti (3237) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JAN 14, 2009
12 oz schooner draft at Uber Tavern at Seattle. Pour is clear amber with lots of carbonation bubbles. 1/2 inch off white head. Aroma of floral honey sweetness, a bit of pine resin. Very full nose, nice and fresh. Taste is sweet sticky resin hops, caramel, scotchy pine, nicely balanced with a big malt backbone. Palate is medium to big, coating, with the alcohol present in the aftertaste. Nice one.

BillKismet (3335) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 11, 2009
Amber color with an oily diffuse head. Feintly hoppy aroma and a body of strong Chinook bitterness with the strong presence of grapefruit throughout. A strongly bitter, but bearable IPA, though not complex and extraordinary enough to garner much attention.

19Ei8hty (1171) - Washington, USA - DEC 1, 2008
On-tap, Malt and Vine; Nice cloudy, deep hazy straw body. Mild caramel sweetness, grainy malt backbone that provides nice, big body for the impressive hop build. Mild grapefruit, pine and grass. Great floral hoppy component. Really light on the nose but massive and balanced in all other areas.

carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 27, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2009 V - cloudy orange. A - noticable hops. T - slight note of candied sugar along with the hops. P - balanced and enjoyable. Offers enough uniqueness to stand out in the IPA genre.
