Nice golden/amber coloured body with a perfect tan head. Aroma of fresh hops, nice malt, a bit of citrus and plenty of caramel. Medium-bodied; Nice sharp hoppy flavour up front with good caramel and plentiful malt. Aftertaste clean and bitter - a good IPA from Portland. Definitely worth trying if you can get your hands on it. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Portland, Oregon on 23 November 2006 (Thanksgiving). YogiBeera (2569) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 12, 2009
Seattle - Draft - 2008: Dark golden color, small fast vanishing head. Very light nose. Nice bitter taste- on the edge but still pleasant bitter hops taste that last and lingers forever. LilBeerDoctor (4236) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 9, 2009
Bottle. Pours a clear light orange with a thick off-white head. Aroma of floral hops, sweet malt. Flavor of light floral hops, toasted malt and a touch of diacetyl. Nice and drinkable. Simple, but good.

Bottle. Aroma of floral hops, light caramel malt. Flavor of floral and grassy hops with the same light caramel malt. Not bad, though not terribly entertaining. SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 8, 2009
In the bomber bottle from Cousin Andrew. Really, really nice. I like this a lot. Great hoppy notes to the scent of grapefruit. The flavor has plenty of pleasant bitterness and yet still remains quite a bit sweet. Nice balance. The lacing on the walls of the shaker are impressively coated with thick foam. This is a satisfying brew that I’ll have again. Can’t wait to get back to Seattle!

22oz bottle. Pours clear golden in color with full full full FOAMY!!!!!!! head, almost all head. Aroma citrus hops. Taste citrus hops with bitter finish. To much head for me, the first pour was all head except about an inch of beer with slow pour. dmac (6591) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - DEC 31, 2008
Ok after reading a few reviews I cant decide wether the bottle was infected or if this thing is just way overcarbonated. When I say this beer poured all head I mean it poured ALL HEAD. Aroma was dust, musty old hops, dirty cellar and notes of vomit. Despite all that I somehow managed to sip it and POW, I was punched in the mouth with tons of carbonation. Flavor of citrus rind, toffee and just very bitter especially in the finish. Maybe I will revisit this in the future after people begin to sy things like average size head or soft carbonation. j12601 (13304) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - DEC 25, 2008
Bottle. Pours an almost clear but gently hazed light amber color with an enormous thick white head that is taking up at least half of the pint glass and stubbornly not deflating very quickly. Aromas are slightly scented with hops, but I’m not getting very much complexity, no clear citrus or resin filled pine notes, just a roughly hoppy scent. Body is thin to medium at best with more of the seemingly excessive carbonation showing up. Finish is nothing but bitter, and a lot of it, with no layers of flavor or anything long lasting. Just a big quick bitter kick in the tongue. Being a big fan of big IPAs, I was quite let down by this one. It is not bad to the point of being a dumper, but I certainly will not be shelling out for another bottle.

Gold pour with just a hint of red. Malt with very light hops on the nose. Spiced flavor with just a hint of bitter. Light bodied with really aggressive carbonation. Very weak ipa not much hop aroma or bitter at all. I will buy another bottle and try again. tomthompson89 (1983) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 20, 2008
