Bottle: Hazy golden orange, like a fresh apricot almost. Carbonation columns rising to the surface with a film of head with small islands of juicy bubbles. Small rings of lacings touch the edges where the beer has been. The aroma is balanced with some good hops (grapefruit, citrus & herbal) and balanced malt (munich, toasty, spicy) and faint alcohol notes. The flavor is more towards the sweet side initially but the hops take a big bite (out of crime) out of that sweetness. The finish is like hop soda with a tangy, zesty carbonation and sweet hop resins. Good, not much alcohol awareness but needs some hops in the bottle maybe. hmmmm. :) JoeMcPhee (9598) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 30, 2004
Cloudy deep orange colour with a large rocky tan-coloured head. Very sticky lacing and a mouthfeel that is also quite full. Aroma is all dry hops, pine, juniper, etc. Flavour is also very hoppy with a hint of caramel malt in the back. Bracingly bitter. Not really all that complex though, just lots of hops.

A fairly straight foward IPA. Nose is full of resin citrus and pine forest wich continues into the mouth. Nice Chewey dusty carmel backbone. beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - JUN 5, 2004
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2004 On tap at the Sasquatch brew fest in Eugene,OR. Pours a amber color with a great white head. Citrusy hop aroma, very fresh and ready for a hot day. Nice hop taste with a bitter end, very hoppy brew. If you like a hop-dominated brew try this. This is the perfect example of northwest overhopped IPA, yumm.

This was a very good beer. Great hop aroma and a juicy hop taste. Well worth trying if you can find it.

Ok I like La Conner’s beers I was at the pub and had this one fresh. What a treat, flowery citrusy hops smack you in the face. Malt? Yeah there is some malt enough so you can put in more hops and have a nice mouthfeel to it, but damn it this is a beer for true hop loving Americans Sickboy282 (1116) - San Diego, California, USA - MAY 17, 2004
Pours a light copper in color with aromas of pine and pure hop. Flavors of the same with a litte thickness on the palate. beer4president (17) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - MAY 2, 2004
A few of the bars in town (Bellingham) carry La Conner IPA on tap ($8.50/pitcher) and it is always wonderful. Great beer from the great state of WA. I drink alot of it. sloth (2945) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - APR 18, 2004
Medium sized white head on a copper color brew. Good retention and an abundent sticky lace. Big hop nose, inky, woody. Medium/full body. Resiny hop flavors, fruity with a solid malt backbone. Finish is medium dry, malty, then the hops settle on yer tongue leaving behind a nice bite and fruityness. SDbruboy (1863) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 10, 2004
Bottle. Poured hazy amber with a small white head. Aroma is full and hoppy tending to floral and pine notes. Nice sweet malts with lots of hop bitterness, very dry finish. Medium body and nice carbonation. This would make a good session ale.
