Like a trainwreck in your mouth, this beer is bursting with flavor: biscuity malts colliding with colossal amounts of American hops to create our version of the classic palate bruiser. Dry hopped with Simcoe and Palisade hops for the classic Northwest style hop nose.

Prufrockstar (2117) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - JUN 15, 2016
Draft at Montana Aleworks. Clear pale pour, frothy white head. Aroma: caramel and dishwater. Medium sweet, moderate bitterness. Throwback IPA where "hoppy" = "just a really bitter pale brew." Medium body, average carbonation. Overall: shrug. I guess it is at it describes, but thats not doing it for me these days.

Zeswaft (1759) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 25, 2016
Tap. Copper gold color. Aroma of pine and citrus. Flavor is smooth but not an overwhelmingly hoppy. One of those piney, peanut butter flavored IPAs. Nothing amazing IMHO.

Darkmagus82 (2302) - - JAN 9, 2015
Served on tap in a pint glass Appearance The beer is served a deep amber color with a one finger head of fizzy white foam. The head fades rather fast leaving just a tiny bit of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell- The aroma of the brew is strong of a citrus smell with tons of grapefruit and tangerine. Along with these smells are some other aromas of caramel and a little bit of a doughty smell, overall giving a somewhat sweeter, but balanced smell overall. Taste The taste begins with a bit of a cracker and sweeter fruit taste of tangerine and pear. Right at the start there is a decent showing of grapefruit hop, which grows stronger as the taste moves on. Along with these flavors other flavors of a light floral and herbal nature come to the tongue which, when mixed with the rest, take the taste to its end and end up leaving a drier more bitter, slightly unbalanced taste on the tongue.. Mouthfeel The body of the brew is on the average to lightly chewier side with a carbonation level that is rather average. For the style it was rather appropriate, but nothing all that exceptional, and created a decent base for the brew overall. Overall Not really an IPA that I would frequent all that often, as it was a little drier, without having a great malt or balanced hop base. One to try if you are a hop head (as you may very well enjoy; dependent on your preferences) but one I will not go to all that often.

jake65 (3579) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - APR 15, 2012
Draft: Dark orange/copper pour with a fluffy beige head. Fruity hops up front with a little pine. Another big hop impact in the taste with more citrus and tropical fruits taking over. Piney and earthy/bready malts to finish. Thick and chewy. Solid.

billk (353) - Coeur dAlene, Idaho, USA - AUG 2, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2011 Tap at Piggyback BBQ, Whitefish. Hazy golden/honey with good thick white head. Fresh, floral, pine/grapefruit hops, light roasted rich caramel malt flavor. Very fresh tasting well made IPA. pushing full bodied without being the least bit heavy. Balanced, but with a huge hop driven flavor and bitterness kick. Im jumping on this again any chance I get.
