DuffMan (10435) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 27, 2011
Bottle, shared with JJ. Hazy light amber gold, big bubbly white head. Nice zesty hop aroma, citrus and light pine and fresh cut grass. Lightly syrupy malt base with interesting fresh hop character imparting the expected citrus, but with a pretty intense grassiness, like fresh cut nettles, that has an almost sour edge. Interesting in a good way. Beerona97 (2399) - Washington, USA - AUG 23, 2011
Pours hazed orange with an annoyingly massive beige head that builds and builds and takes forever to fade. Initially the aroma is hard to get through the foam but I am picking up lighter fruits like apple and peach and a floral hoppiness. Taste is mostly sweet with a mild bitterness on the finish. Pretty good stuff, the head is weird but other than that, it is a solid beer. I was thinking it was going to be old and oxidized since this is a 4th anniversary beer and the first rating was over a year ago, so that makes me assume they have brewed this again because it definitely does not taste like a year old Pale Ale. Now that the head has receded mostly, I am getting more lemony and slightly herbal hops. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 1, 2011
Bottle:   Heavy on the orangish amber, some sediment floats about, moderate sudsy off-white head, spotty lacing.   Hop driven nose, very slight mustiness, a bit of wet basement and staleness.   Otherwise some orange citrus peel.   Somewhat of a dull hoppy start, minor bitterness and citrus peel.   Seems like a decent Pale Ale.   Has a fresh taste about it, but the aroma leads me to believe otherwise.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Lingering citrus peel, seems a bit sweeter than the start.   Maybe because its warming up?   Funny, as I drink this I think to myself that a lot of other beers would call this an IPA.   Lingering citrusy hoppy bitterness that just fits for a Pale Ale.   Pretty good stuff, despite the nose throwing me off. vacantskies (208) - Spokane, Washington, USA - MAR 5, 2011

22oz Bottle – Gravity Beer Market – Olympia, WA after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - FEB 5, 2011
Dark amber and hazy in color. Big hops aroma and flavor. Floral and light fruit hops flavor. Liked the malt and the finish was dry and smooth. Easy drinking brew this was another iron Horse treat.
22. Pours a murky burnished dark amber with a dense and fluffy white head and plenty of dotty lace. Nice tropical nose with caramel and toast under that. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast, caramel, nuts, tropical fruit, and a sharp pine finish on the mid-palate. We’ve probably had this beer quite a few times from quite a few different brewers, both pro and am, but it never gets old, especially when it’s made this well. Great session beer.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy peach juice with a creamy beige head. Aroma of mild, light stone fruit. Med. body. Flavor is peach/apricot/citrus over a light malt backbone. Very fruity APA. Drinks quite nicely. And the finish is bitter! riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - NOV 18, 2010
Very nice aroma of tropical fruity hops, hints of grass here and there lightly sweet malt base. Pours golden orange with a lasting whispy/creamy head. Flavors of tropical fruit - peaches is spot on, light toast/caramel malt base with a fruity fresh hop finish and hints of grass in there as well. Wonderfully fresh and drinkable. A very nice APA.
