Turbid amber ale with a soapy yellowed eggshell sheet. Smells of pine, resin, some mint, some other herbs. Flavor is nice and grapefruity, with sweetened lemon zest, some resin, some Vitamin C character and a slightly sweet malt backbone. Medium bodied with zippy, but lower carb and a watery finish. I like this beer. It’s like a smaller version of Ruination - which is probably my go to IPA honestly. Oregon_butcher (60) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - OCT 29, 2013
Very heady, very cloudy. Dark orange in color. Smell is very strong citrusy/earthy. Taste is of
mellow citrus, smooth, and very balanced. Very sessionable IPA. And a pretty dank IPA!

(July 2013, Can from Bottleworks, SEA) Appears clear, deep apricot. Nose is quite thick and sticky, almost fat/sweet hops. Some pineapple and pot. Quite pleasant taste, lightly pricking, subsequently more sweet and bitter hops. Well hopped alright. MartinT (10239) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 27, 2013
My Bottom Line:robforbes (2292) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - OCT 27, 2013
Earthy hop resins and their citrusy buds develop dank, grassy greenery within this India Pale Ale’s caramel malt profile.
Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam tops the cloudy amber.
-The hops also share plenty of geraniol.
-The flavor profile could be tighter. There is a lot going on, but it is a whirlwind. Albeit, a nice whirlwind to parasail through.
-The soft natural carbonation increases drinkability.
pours a cloudy amber with a medium size white head, and good lacing.
smell is of malt, some caramel, and a little pine.
taste is of hops, malt, and a touch of citrus. ends a little sweet.

ours orange/amber with off-white foamy head, lots of lacing on the glass (snifter). Hop aroma of oranges, pine resin. Taste is sharp and tart, hops up front, malt on the finish. Smooth with a little edge. ABUSEDGOAT (2964) - California, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Hazy amber color, moderate head, decent lace/retention. I successfully predicted a few of the hop aromas here - cascade and centennial. Grapefruit, citrus, pine, big and fruity sweet hop aroma with moderate caramel. Medium bodied, moderate bitterness, a little too sweet for my tastes but really nice flavors here. 19Ei8hty (1166) - Washington, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Hazy straw body with a tall white head. Moderate grainy malt character. A little doughy. Some light toasted bread. Fresh floral and grass notes. Some light sweet fruit. a bit watery and thin. haddon90 (1634) - Newport Beach, California, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Draft. Pours a clear copper color with a thin head and bubbles rising to the top. Nice grapefruit aroma with some hops. Smooth taste. Tangy flavor with some hops. Not dry. Very wet. Good balance though. maekchu (4202) - Hirakata, JAPAN - SEP 8, 2013
Bottle in PDX. Nice, almost sugary, nose with some citrus, with good caramel. Light copper color. Good toffee-ish sweetness / some serious hop burn in mid / good balance in final orange juicy and sweet malt. Medium body. M+Nice stuff. Tangy and not overdone.
