Tap. I was not as impressed as others with this beer. Orange. Almost no head. Grapefruit hop aroma required some effort to pull from the glass. Strong consistent hop flavour with some sweetness at the edges. Not a long finish.

I live just up the road from the brewery and find it very good, very good hop nose, you can tell its made with fresh northwest hops.

Truly an outstanding IPA. I thank the heavens whenever I can find it. Last/originally tasted at Latona Pub.

Growler thanks to Scott (Skaughty). Poured a hazy orange. Aromas of grapefruit, grass, pine, and some diacytel notes. Flavor of light fruit, grassy, hoppy and finsihes bitter. Medium bodied.

Sampled from a growler courtesy of skaughty. Pours a slightly hazy copper bronze with a thick white head with nice retention and lace. Aroma is a fresh blend of western hops sprinkled with grainy caramel malt. Starts mildly sweet and exhibits good balance for an IPA before turning to a hoppy bitter finish. An enjoyable and very drinkable brew, but could use a little more complexity or depth of flavor. Id love this for a session beer though. Thanks again Scott!

Welcome to the pine forest! The aroma goes on, and on, and on, and on, and on, and on....The head is frothy and stays with the aroma. The taste is almost *too* fresh, as the taste and mouthfeel are almost leafy. This is a fairly rare and rough, yet amazing IPA.

Ernest (7662) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 27, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2015 Bottle. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly lasting. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (toasted grain), lightly to moderately hoppy (grapefruit, grass), lightly yeasty (dough). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately to heavily bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly astringent. Revisiting this 11 years since my first review and still not a fan. Funny to think this used to be a Top 50 beer on this site. Pretty run of the mill, as it was back then too.

Cloudy and amber-orange. Mild to medium carbonation. Smooth and very drinkable. Fresh dough aromas. Bready and yeasty flavors and esters swirl about. Great balance. Moderate bitterness in the finish. Great aftertaste, with lingering flavors of cookie dough and pine. One tasty IPA.

Just a stunningly good example of an English IPA. Have to admit, I primarily drink the Industrial IPA, but this beer is an absolute top shelf example of the style.
