This it’s an amazingly flavorful beer. I’m not usually an IPA fan, but this had win me over. All the other IPA’s in my waterhole are tasteless in comparison. liquidhedonism (289) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - DEC 23, 2014
On tap at Pizza Schmizza in Hillsboro, OR. Aroma: malty and piney, with hints of caramel, bread, and resin. Taste/Palate: crisp; starts sweet, and finishes with a long bitterness. heppenheimer (8) - - MAR 26, 2014 does not count
My favorite IPA. Wonderful balance between hops and body. Bitter, but not overly so. Gangstergafje (1142) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - APR 21, 2017
Had the beer during the 2016 Kompaan Bloedbroeder festival. The beer looks delicious. It has some typical IPA looks. The color is a light orangy yellow, with a nice cloudiness. On top of the beer a nice little layer of white foam is formed. The bulk collapses quickly, leaving a thin drape.
The smell is amazing. It reminds me of Dublin and the Irish IPA’s I’ve had there. Amazing smell. I smell lovely sweet and lightly sour aroma’s of citrus fruits, including grapefruit and lemon zest, and a nice hint of passionfruit. I immediately feel like I’m in Ireland again, because most Irish pale ales have the same fruity hop characters. The hops are lovely, very aromatic and rich and well balanced. They are full of smell, but gentle.
The taste is the same. Irish pale ale all over. There is hoppy grapefruit, passion fruit and other citrus fruits. Also some lovely bitter touches of hops and some ginger. Perfect balance.
The palate is fine. Nice and smooth. All in all, a very good IPA. Good job. I love it. hops99 (60) - Montana, USA - SEP 17, 2012
Had several of these brought back from my OR coast trip. This is a great beer. Pours a cloudy reisinous orange color. Smells piney and citusy also slight yeastiness in there. Taste is very bold, nice malt up front with a good hop bite at the end. One of the best IPA’s I have ever had.

UPDATED: NOV 13, 2011 This is an exceptional IPA. This beer has a smooth and building hops tone... the 97 IBU then becomes very apparent. The aroma is classic Cascade hops philbertk (1873) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 15, 2010

Thick orange hued copper body with a tall ecru head. Lemonhead and orange citrus jumps out surrounding a rich cereal and toasted bread malt backbone. Lemongrass and fresh sharp pine notes. Some wood and earth along with hearty milled grain and moderate oily resin character. A bit of herbal leaf notes a slight caramel sweetness. Good floral notes and perhaps a dusting of sweet peach. Outstanding drink. Aml42000 (622) - Washington, USA - APR 6, 2012
Very good IPA. Orange/amber color. Poured from tap. Floral hops on the nose with a medium bodied palate. Sweet malts are quickly balanced by strong white peach and grapefruit flavors. Long, hoppy finish.
