On tap at the brewery. Clear yellow pour with a white head. Citrusy hop bouquet. Tropical fruit and citrus hop notes. Great balance with a sturdy malt backbone. Good body and mouthfeel. Impressive.. tiong (7342) - Espoo, FINLAND - JUN 10, 2014
Draught @ Fremont Brewing, Seattle, WA jcartamdg (3470) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Pours dark orange with a smooth head. Aroma of citrus, caramely malts, grass and grapefruit. Taste is malty, sweet and stuffy with some citrus and grapefruit. Finish is sticky and sweetish with some hoppiness. A bit unbalanced.
Pours a deep orange with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet malt, citrus especially oranges. Taste is sweet malt upfront, bitter citrus with a malty finish. A bit too sweet for my liking but still a good ipa. deaconmike (470) - Roswell, Georgia, USA - MAY 14, 2014
On tap at Seattle Tap Room in SeaTac. Good piney/resiny ipa. Body is slightly south of medium. Good, but not a standout mikedR (1561) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - MAY 9, 2014
Solid malt forward IPA, with a nice touch of sweetness. Bitter, but mildly so.

Bomber that I have no idea where from. A copper beer that has quite a bit of carbonation floating up. An off white head that is fluffy and has good retention. A pleasant citrus aroma is classic west coast IPA. The flavor is also citrus with a little pine and tropical fruit. Moderate bitterness. Malts are a little different and are caramel. A nice classic version. OldMrCrow (2443) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 16, 2014
Draft at the Seatac Seattle Taproom.

Amber pour, modest white head, good lacing. Spicy, floral hop nose. Citrus peel and pith drive the aroma, ample pine -- this is a classic c-hop profile. At 6.5% I wouldn’t call it a session beer -- maybe a PacNW session beer at best -- but it’s enjoyable enough to drink if now special enough to stand out from the day-to-day crowd of literally hundreds of c-hopped PacNW IPAs.
Reviewed from notes.
The appearance had a light hazy yellow somewhat golden color; light carbonation is seen rising, half fingered white foamy head slowly dies and leaves a decent amount of clingy lacing.
The smell had some light bitter hops - somewhat citrusy yet smooth; malts do present themselves fairly well.
The taste was a bittersweet througth the malts and hops, combined nicely, light malty sweet citrusy aftertastek quick dry finish.
On the palate, it sat at/about a light to medium on the body, somewhat sessionable. Carbonation is good for the style and for me.
Overall, this was a good AIPA that I would have again. PhilHarmstead (25) - Vermont, USA - MAR 6, 2014
A nice discovery while in Seattle this winter. Paired perfectly with Dungenes crab cakes and green curry mussels. A nice, well-hopped IPA. Not overwhelmingly bitter but not at all sweet/malty. Wish I could find a 6-pack in VT. EdInSaltLake (727) - Salt Lake City, Utah, USA - FEB 4, 2014
Grapefruit/lemony hop aroma and flavor, and light bready malt character. Tasty bitterness--more in the aftertaste.
