Dark Orange-amber body, large off-white head, sudsy lacing. Nose shows grapefruit upfront followed by perfume pine, resin and herbals. Flavor shows similar hoppy notes but increased caramel malts. Medium bodied, assertive bitterness, gentle carbonation. Nice.

IndianaRed (4418) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 27, 2013
On tap at Ellensburg Pasta Co. Classic medium amber with a dense sandy cored head. Lots of grapefruit hoppiness in the aroma with a mild biscuity malt character as well. Flavor is near ideal. Big fresh citrus hops and just enough sweet light malts to compliment. Moderately bitter but so tasty. Creamy soft palate and easy on be carbonation. Very nice !

maxwelldeux (4374) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JUN 20, 2013
Draught. Pours a hazy amber color with a very small white head on it. Nose is nice and hoppy with some good floral tones coming off of it. Taste is bitter and smooth and quite refreshing.

boFNjackson (4200) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 24, 2013
Tap @ The BeerMongers... Poured pale golden/orange with a thick forming white head. This hits the spot as a west coast IPA. Floral, vibrant, pine-like and citrus hops with a clean balance. Lots of hop flavor without being too bitter, and just the right amount of malt without coming off as too bready and grainy. This is worth revisiting for those special IPA craving. Im hoping for six packs.

BillKismet (4020) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 28, 2012
Stately bronze bodied and crowned with a creamy, airy beige foam. Fresh floral hop aroma--the hop pellet dust and hop resins is almost palpable. Strong chinook, and perhaps centennial and crystal hop flavors. Really thick hoppy component--very pelletized body. Powerful.

maekchu (3816) - 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.

Can. Pours a hazy amber with a floral hop filled aroma. Hop lover beer for sure. A little bit of sweet fruit in there too. Finishes really smooth and full of flavor. Easy drinking. Very well done.

jake65 (3585) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - FEB 6, 2015
Can: Citrus and piney aroma, lightly sweet. The pour is a dirty orange and yellow with a ridiculously large sandy head. Really nice hops flavor, citrus and pine. Sweet with minimal bitterness. Light bits of lingering floral hops.
