UPDATED: JUL 21, 2013 Shipped to me by my wife on a trip to Portland. Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a dark amber color with a huge foamy and creamy yellow white head that lingered and produced great lacing. The aroma was sweet grapefruit, pineapple and raising with a hint of fruit cocktail. The flavor was tart and very tangy with moderate bitterness and solid elements of grapefruit and pine. The finish was long, tangy and at ouch off. Moderately full bodied. Nice.

A great IPA, drank it out of a wine goblet on my Aunts patio. This one was overshadowed by a bunch of other beers. Happy to cross this great off my list.

pineypower (3247) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - AUG 6, 2010
Bottle from Total Wine Fredericksburg, VA. Pours an attractive clear, well carbonated copper color with a big fluffy off white head. Aroma was of nice citrus and pine hops, and some light malts. Taste is nice, citrus and pine hops with a light tropical fruit note. Unfortunately this bottle was more towards the end of the lifespan of an IPA, but none the less this was still a very solid brew. Would love to try this fresh.

humulushound (244) - British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 4, 2010
Pours amber-orange into a tulip, lacy off-white head. Delicious aroma of grapefruit, pine,floral character, light candied apricot and honey undertones. Flavor is sweet oranges and grapefruit, honey-caramel malt with light spicy hops in the finish. Smooth, medium body with a little bite. Fantastic IPA with a winning blend of hops.

BeerGeyser (37) - San Marcos, California, USA - JUL 27, 2010
On Tap at the Firestone Walker tasting room in Paso Robles. It poured a nice amber with a foamy head. The hop content was very evident in the aroma as I raised the taster glass to take a sip. I was expecting an overwhelming hop bite but it was pleasantly smooth. A very nicely balanced IPA with a hidden kick at 7.5%.

Draft at Downtown Joes, Napas. POW! Silly huge Cascade nose from a glass of clear gold with fine white diminishing head. FW house flavor is there; its similar to Lagunitas. Bitterness is not profound, just there to shore up the peachy, orangey hop flavors and delicate sweetness. This is a very sneaky strong beer with medium body and no heat.

22oz. bottle poured into a tulip glass. Bottling date is 4/22/10 so we are definitely towards the end of this ones shelf life. A nice inch and a half of head forms and leaves impressive lacing as it dissipates. Nice, bright, golden yellow-orange color. The nose has tangy pineapple and citrus hop qualities and a healthy dose of malty sweetness to it. A bit sweeter than I prefer but still well balanced. Mouthfeel is full bodied and medium-heavy. This is definitely a big beer. Pine and pineapple flavors tickle the tongue before a tidal wave of bitter hops rushes across the palate. Surprisingly lively hops for a relatively old bottle. Not very much carbonation but the hops are still crisp enough to overpower the majority of the malt with their resiny bitterness. Very drinkable for a beer that should probably be in the imperial/double class.
