Tap. Pours a slightly hazy copper body with a small tight bubbled off-white head that faded to a thin film. The nose is nicely hoppy with some tropical fruit hoppiness and a caramel malt base. The flavor is aggressively bitter with lots of pine and tropical notes, especially heavy hops against the seemingly light caramel malt body. Lingering grapefruit pith on the finish. Lighter bodied but sticky and resiny hops on the back end. Pretty nice beer, tons of hops without the heavy body.

10/27 - On draft at Ballard Brewermaster Dinner. Copper colored, with a modest amount of creamy head, with small bubbles and some lace on the side. Aroma is of hops, a bit of leaf and lots of biscuit and caramel. Sweet start then bitter. Medium thickness, slightly oily and a long finish. Really nice!

mcberko (16622) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 17, 2014
22 oz. bottle, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out floral notes, earthy notes, and some minty / licoricey notes. Flavour is very dry and hoppy (this may as well be called a IIPA), with piney hops, biscuity malt, and some sweetish cereal. Well-balanced, with a fairly dry mouthfeel. Not the most complex, but nice enough.

Bottle from Haggen’s Grocery, Woodinville
Hazy amber color with medium sized head. The aroma is a bit milky; also a bit fruity. Good body strength; sweet caramel flavor with strong resiny hops, it also has some alcohol perception and some vegetables.
Not bad, but it has some off flavors.

improvjock (328) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 19, 2014
Tall can. Pours an opaque golden honey with light and soft off-white head. Aroma of biscuit-y malts and a complex mix of hops. Taste is overpowered by the hops and bitterness up front, but with a lingering sweetness in the back end. Pretty heavy mouth-feel, with a dry finish. Decent overall

Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Thanks to 5000 for sending me this can. Orange pour with a white head. The aroma has some very nice tropical fruit notes as well as some pine and biscuit malt. The flavor has some of the same notes. I get a ton of tropical fruit and orange citrus notes. The biscuit malt keeps the bitterness fairly low. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Really liked this one.
