Draught at Apex, Portland
Hazy golden color with compact head. Musky strong IPA, moderately sweet, but not caramelly or heavy; the hops are sturdy. Not necessarily easy to drink, or exciting.
Heavy beer. Heavy concept.

On tap at Apex, pours a clear golden copper with a small white head. Aroma brings out piney and herbal hops, and biscuity malt. Flavour is wonderfully balanced, with loads of piney hops, some herbal notes, and just enough dry malt to back. Excellent balance - with loads of hops that don’t become burdensome. Wonderful.

Draft - Lots of nice grapefruit. Clear gold with a decent white head. Lots of grapefruit and nice bitterness. Clean and simple.

Orangish pour at GABF. Flavors of grapefruit peel, dank hops, sweet malts. Big beer. Sweet and hoppy at the same time.

On tap at the 2009 NABA. A stand out beer for sure. No surprise that it won gold. Pours a golden color with a medium frothy white head. A huge aroma of citrus hops, grapefruit and pine. The flavor was excellent; bitter, lots of citrus, pine and caramel malts as well. Flavorful and strong but very quaffable like a good IIPA should be. I wish I had tried this a few more times.

From the Jug at the GABF Colorado Convention Center, Denver 11/10/2008 Very fruity pineapple aroma. Golden coloured and very hoppy with a crisp and bitter lasting finish.

Ibrew2or3 (8814) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - NOV 15, 2007
Courtesy of jayg, thanks Jay. Pours clear copper with gold edges and thin off white head. Wow, big aroma of pine hops that seem to border on wet hops along with grassiness. It delivers a big mouth feel full of pine, resiny, grassy, wet hops that hit the spot for this hop head of mine. A mild malt sweetness never exceeds at making its presence felt beyond just a murmur. It leaves a nice pine hop sense into the after taste.

3.7
jredmond (8626) - New York, New York, USA - OCT 7, 2014
GABF 2014. Pours an orange amber with white lacing. Aroma is citrus, grapefruit, pine and caramel malt. Mouthfeel is light to medium with notes of citrus, pine, mango and clean malt.
