Very tough beer. One of the breweries highest in alcohol. The atypical in your face Pacific North-West IPA.

teamsale (108) - Washington, USA - JUN 25, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear golden copper with a one finger beige-white head and great lacing. Smells a woodsy citrus olive. Tastes malt citrus hoppy but really well balanced. Bitterness is medium but long lasting. Aftertaste is floral.

biirusaikou (2332) - - MAR 27, 2016
Bottle. Nose of overripe peach, pineapple, marmalade flavors are more or less the same with light bready and piney notes, somewhat feels a tad too mild if not watery, fairly dry finish. Goes down pretty smoothly, a bit too simple maybe for the abv but still a fairly decent hoppy brew.

Gerbeer (2979) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 22, 2016
650 ml bottle. Pours a copper color with moderate head. Aromas of candied fruit and bread dough. Flavors of candied fruit, light pine, and sweet malts and sweetened pineapple.

slowrunner77 (9421) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JAN 3, 2016
Lightly floral aroma with a good amount of malt, pine and citrus. Flavor a little warming, similar to aroma. A decent but not great IPA. Might have a little age on it.

rosenbergh (9922) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 23, 2015
22 oz bottle. In Hawaii Tasting with IslandHaole. Thanks Dan! Murky mid-brown color with a small white head. Dryish hops, malt, mild yeasty notes and mild bitterness in the aroma. Resiny hops, moderate bitterness, malt and some yeasty notes in the flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

IslandHaole (1216) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Deep Gold/Light Orange, beige head with well balanced scent, floral hops, cotton candy, Mandarin Oranges. Good hop flavor profile with an interesting blend of floral/pine/citrus and a funky dusty quality, sticky sweetness, slick feel. An interesting beer, 22 oz is plenty to drink.

reebtogi (5471) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 9, 2015
650ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is grapefruit and tropical fruits with some caramel and grainy notes. Taste is a grapefruit hop bitterness with a tropical fruit and malty sweetness. Slightly grainy mouth feel. Medium bodied with good carbonation that tickles the tongue. I really enjoyed this one. Recommended.

mjg74 (2953) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUN 30, 2015
Bomber from Winco. Hazy amber in color upon pouring. Sweet and slightly fruity nose. Good hoppiness up front with a bit of sweetness. Good deal of hoppiness throughout. Good balance with a bit of sweetness and malts. Solid 2IPA.

Not bad. A bit citrus but not too much. Had this in Seattle with John and Mark. Floral.
