On draft. Nice golden pour. Hoppy aroma with a little pine end citrus. Taste is simply awesome. Hoppy with a good malty finish. One of the best of the style (IPAs) out there, if not the best. TheJestersBeer (2430) - SWEDEN - JUN 3, 2012

I first tried this beer at the Oregon Brewfest in 2010 and I fell in love. For me it is the perfect IPA. Nice hop aroma and extremely smooth well-balanced taste. Drinking this on draft gives me a beergasm every time and it’s hard for me to stop drinking it once I start. Purely delicious. beerbastard (844) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - JUN 2, 2012
This is the classic IPA. Malty with that northwest hop nose. Perfectly balanced hop, malt and bitterness flavors of citrus pine and fruits balanced with a strong malt backbone. Finishes clean and dry with a slight bitter end. jc4031 (129) - Colorado, USA - MAY 31, 2012
one of the best commercial ipa’s on the market in my opinion, i think this is up there with blind pig and stone lots of floral and citrus in the nose and taste

On tap at a work function, came with a high recommendation and did not disappoint. Citrus & pine on the nose, punch of hops on the palate. Lively carbonation, well balanced.

Bottle: pours clear golden, small, dense, off white head. Nose: resin, pine, peach, citrus hops. Quite nice. Flavors of resin, pine, sweet caramel malts, dry hopping really noticeable. Crisp, sticky on the lips as it's like hemp oil on there. Nice, short bitter bite. You can see why it's a classic.

One of my favourite beers of all time. There is a reason why this brewery won the 2012 Brewery of the Year at the World Beer Cup. This is their flagship beer and for good reason. A hop lover’s dream, right up my alley. guerinfbfan (110) - Elmwood Park, Illinois, USA - MAY 25, 2012
Pours a nice golden yellow with a thin beige head. Aroma consists of floral notes and fruits. Flavor has the usual hints of pine, as well as fruits, mostly grapefruit. Very drinkable, lovely offering! chrispthompson (29) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 24, 2012
From a bottle at house of brews, 5/2012. Pours pretty light color for an IPA, not cloudy at all, almost like a pale ale, golden with medium head. Lots of bubbles like champagne almost at first, but settled down after a bit. Nose just a really pleasingly intense hoppiness, I'm not getting all the citrus and complexity that other people have mentioned... It just smells like straight hops to me, and tastes the same. Really good though. A great session IPA.
