Draft, at the Seattle Brew Pub. Pour is orange gold with a smallish white head. Aroma is hop and a little bit of chemical funkiness. Taste is the bright floral hops, but strong chemical egg and popcorn was there too - probably diacytel. This was not terribly enjoyable.

Arayaga2 (2158) - portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 22, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2008 Clear golden with lingering white head. Aroma is sweet and floral, albeit too subtle. Sour lemon pithy bitterness in taste with vigorous carbonation, and resinous hop-oil aftertaste. Englishy yeast character with unpleasant fermentation byproducts $5/22oz

This beer wasnt too bad. Pours out orange with a decent white head. Smell is a bit hoppy no citrus that Im used to in these west coast IPAs. Taste is clean and smooth with a nice punch of hops but not over the top at all. I will say that the slight buttery taste from the diacytel took away from it a bit. Still a good beer.

Bottle which Garrett brought to my house last night. Thanks man. Pours out a orange color with a thick white head on it. Smell is slightly hoppy, with a touch of a butter note. Taste was smooth and rich, somewhat hoppy, but had a bit of diacytel in it. Not bad by any means, but I was expecting a PNW IPA, not an English style IPA. Id like to get a bottle that didnt have diacytel in it though.

Poured a clear golden color with a thin off-white head. The aroma was semi-sweet with malt and a mix of sweaty hops. The flavor was a mix of piney hops and sweet malt. Mild bitterness and a semi-dry finish. Medium bodied.

22 oz bottle shared with padrefan98. Aroams of citrus including pineapple off this hazy orange brew with a huge fluffy head that lasted forever. In fact, when I was done with the beer, there was still head in the glass. Can I get a spoon please.... Flavors were more hops with some grapefruit citrus taking the forefront. Pretty tasty.

22 oz bottle thanks to dgarth. Pours a golden cloudy orange with a huge head that lasted the whole time. Good hop presence with tastes of grapefruit and pine. Very good.
