Bottled. Pours a clear amber color with a few specks of yeast floating underneath a medium sized lasting white head. The aroma has a nice blend of floral, citrus, and pine hops with some toasted caramel malt in the background. The flavor is very similar to the nose floral, citrus, and pine hops with a modest malt backbone, somewhat earthy. The bitterness is at a nice level for an IPA. Medium bodied, nice drinking IPA.

Solid IPA. Beautifully balanced. Hop character midway between floral and pungent/piney. Eminently drinkable. mcberko (18930) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 29, 2010
12 oz. bottle, pours a hazy golden with a white head. Fantastic pine hops, grapefruit and floral notes on the nose. Flavour follows similarly, with a balanced malt underlay. Really great IPA. Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 24, 2010
12oz bottle. Rating #1156. Nice dark yellow/gold pour with a pretty nice long lasting white head. Citrus (light grapefruit/orange maybe) with an underlying pine aroma as well. Medium bitterness and a little sweetness as well, very drinkable and a real solid IPA. (1192) bpreo (2943) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 23, 2010
Not really the best beer in the world, but it succeeds as an IPA. Plus, the cap has a logo featuring a darling little dog.

This poured a rich dark orange with a finger’s worth of white creamy head. The aroma has some pungent aromatic hops. Taste at first has the aromatic hops come through with a solid malt backbone, though the crisp and piney hop bitterness shines through on the aftertaste. An excellent everyday IPA. I give it extra points for the very low price for this solid brew. Cole (967) - , Alberta, CANADA - APR 18, 2010
Pours clear amber with a thick yet quickley dissapateing head. Aroma is great! Lots of cascade, and strong floral hoppy notes. Flavour is also exceptional. Bold and rich, malt giving way to a citrus flavour and then into and excellent lingering bitter hop finish. The hops really make this beer it is an excellent IPA start to finish. daleharshman (1073) - Escondido, California, USA - APR 16, 2010
12 ounce bottle from Total Wine in Tustin ($1.79). Pours a murky orange-amber with one finger of frothy off-white head. Aroma of more mellow and less "bright" hops (grass, peach). Taste is initially mellow hoppy as well but the malt soon kicks in, leaving this generally well balanced and smooth. A big of lingering bitterness in finsh along with some booze which is surprising since this weighs in under 6%. I bought this about seven months ago, so that could be a reason for the mellow-ish hop profile (at least for a California IPA). Good enough, but not a whole lot going on here.

Bomber thanks to Timbo and April. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a medium white fluffy head. The aroma is sweet citrus and malt. A smooth hop bite; easygoing light citrus, lots of balance from a earthy dry malt. So easy and tasty. SkipperHoyer (31) - Copenhagen V, DENMARK - APR 11, 2010
Intense peach and melon aroma. Powerfully fruity, not sickly sweet. Even non-beer drinkers (!) ought to be lured in by this one.
Deep piney colour with few bubbles. Not clear: clouded with pollen-like particles. Pure white head. Lasts nicely, doesn’t obscure aroma.
Fruity taste, at first. This fades after a few sips. Then crisp, tart, strong and still fruity. Quite bitter aftertaste. Grapefruit? A little malty.
Excellent overall - a really interesting beer.
