Draft pour at brewery, happy ipa day, bright golden amber pour, citrus and pine aroma, some bit finish have had this beer a number of times over the years, one of the most popular beers in WA I see why. Awesome beer. solidfunk (8941) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - JAN 2, 2016
Lots of pine and some citrus. Good balance, and very well done for style. Pours golden amber with decent lacing, not much head. Finish is quite bitter. Notes of pineapple. Nicely done. Draft at Seattle Taproom. Wombata (623) - Kobe, JAPAN - SEP 4, 2016

Aroma: Grassy hop with fresh pine/cedar, ripe orange and orange peel, mango, yeast.
Flavor: Dried mango, orange and orange peel, peppery pine. Long, spicy and bitter fruit (apricot, mango and orange) finish.

On tap at Corvus & Co. in Capitol Hill, Seattle. Beautiful clarity and a warm copper color. Moderate bitterness, good pale ale character. Overall very good, another PNW brew to applaud.

On tap at Naked City. Pours clear orange amber with a thick, frothy off-white head. Hoppy aroma of grapefruit and pine, with some oatmeal. Tastes similar with a little more caramel. Long, bitter pine finish. gracefullypunk (667) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 23, 2009
UPDATED: FEB 13, 2010 On tap at the brewery. Liking IPAs more now so decided this one deserved a re-visit. Faint IPA aroma of piney hops. Taste balances between citrus and peppery hops. Enjoyable. OldMrCrow (2437) - Seattle, Washington, USA - SEP 20, 2009
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2012 Tap at Fiddler’s.
3fourths (9341) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 26, 2011
Dark copper pour w/ a small head. Nice c-hop aroma. Dry, peppery hop flavors, ample resin, hint of sweetness coming in behind but never forefront -- darn solid IPA. A pleasant surprise. 9/20/09. 7/3/7/4/51
Revisit Fiddlers 9/15/12. Better than I remembered, juicy and well balanced. Nudge upwards in score.
draft. clear medium gold; white head. pine and citrus nose, fresh, lively and clean. snappy cracker malt and zesty pine/citrus hops with tingling bitterness and a medium-light body. extremely drinkable. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 6, 2011
Draught @ Brouwer’s Café: Golden, slight coppery hue, fairly clear otherwise, moderate white head, mild carbonation, nice lacing. Hoppy on the nose, slight citrus rind. More citrus rind on the tongue than the nose suggested. Otherwise hoppy with a slight dank basement presense. Finish has a little bit of earthiness to it. Fairly well balanced. A not so over the top bitter PNW IPA. Respectable!
