3fourths (9357) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 1, 2011
draft. caramel sweet malt with fruit cocktail / gelatin hops and floral / waxy / fruity esters. juicy, highly bitter, fruit cocktail sweetness is excessive, body is a bit too chewy. not bad but more like ho-hum typical over-sweet american IPA. dwm1034 (785) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 25, 2011
DRAFT at Laurel-wood on Sandy in Portland....pours a darker shade of usual orange IPA....tan head. Good hoppy nose...citris and other astringent scents...good stuff....tastes much the same...went well with my very spicy burrito....will be back BrewDad (5328) - Olympia, Washington, USA - OCT 25, 2011
Nice citrus aroma with some floral. Amber in color, clear with a thin head. This is the same beer as the Workhorse but with different hops so that’s why the different name. Very solid beer once again. Great job Laurelwood. riversideAK (6261) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - OCT 19, 2011
Citrus and floral hops, some pine, pepper, on top of a good dose of caramel malt. Pours darker amber with a thin off white head. The flavor is caramel malty with some citrus and floral hop bitterness rounding out the finish as well as a light dose of pepper. boFNjackson (4201) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 11, 2011
Bottle... Poured amber/orange with a foamy, white head. Nose had resinous, piney hops. Lots of citrus and a bit of bitterness here. Pepper spice, pine, yeast esters, apricot fruits, and bready malts for a subtle balance.

22 oz bomber from Roth’s Vista Market,Salem. $4.99
Rather dark amber for an IPA but with a pretty eggshell wite head..thats thick and bubbly.
Nice hoppy aromas, resiney,piney..nice
Taste is like the aroma, but with a good malt balance,semi sweet finish.
Ok on the palate but for my tastes it was rather under carbonated.
Pretty average IPA really troopie (2410) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - SEP 21, 2011
