Tap @ their Public House... Poured clear orange/amber-ish with a white head. Lots of hops on the nose. Well carbonated with a load of hops up front to help retain the spicy aspects that assaulted the palate. The malted grains came through to the finish. anders37 (26625) - Malmö, SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2008
Draft at the brewpub. Pours a golden color with a small off-white head. Has a malty hoppy citrus and pine needles aroma. Sweetish malty hoppy bitter grapefruit flavor. Has a malty hoppy bitter flavor. BlackDonald (1126) - Gulf Shores, Alabama, USA - JUL 19, 2008
Wow, impressive hop nose, citrus fruits, and a bit of grapefruit followed by a small hint of skunky resin. This is a true NW style IPA, great hoppiness on the palate. Kind of disappointed in the malt body, but other than that it is really nicely done. Oakes (17676) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2006
Cloudy amber. Fruity-hoppy nose with a hint of caramel. Moderate bitterness, woody hops and a fairly strong malt character - caramel and date sugar. Diacetyl underneath.

Tap at Hood River Hops Fest. Medium amber colored, fairly clear. Whitish head leaves moderate lacing behind. Citrus and earthy hop aroma with a decent toasty malt balance. Medium bodied with a pleasant mild carbonation. Earth and citrus hop flavors interact well and play nicely with a biscuity, toasty malt background. An interesting blend of Noble and "C" hops.

(Draft: Elliot Glacier Public House in Parkdale, OR) Sweet and fruity nose is very light on the hops for an IPA. Light gold color, slightly hazy. Light tan head is supplied by dozens of steady, mesmorizing carbonation bubble trails that creep slowly along the edge of the glass. Moderately bitter hops is the principle component of the flavor, but a moderate fruitiness and a sweet, lightly grainy maltiness makes for a nice base. A thin layer of head is retained throughout the session, and leaves a single large patch of white lace on the glass -- is that Elliot Glacier? Very pleasant, and the best of the four on tap at the brewery today. Sham (1844) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 19, 2005
Amber with a light, fluffy head and no lace. Sweet caramel nose with some floral hops. Bitter hops in the flavior with hints of soap. Nice malt back. Well balanced with a finish of bitter hops. BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAR 9, 2005
Sampled draught at Elliot Glacier Brewpub, Parkdale
Cool gold, shimmering creamy head, nice lacing. Nose of floral PNW hops & light malts, the flavor is nicely bitter with a light body & some chewy malts in the tail. Best of the bunch!
