Pours and orange copper with yellow-tan head. Aroma is pine, citrus and grass. Flavor is much like 2Hearted by Bells. Crisp, grassy, floral. One of Laurelwood’s best IPAS. hayduke (5550) - Eureka, California, USA - DEC 28, 2010
From a 22 oz bottle, this pours a hazy amber with medium sized off-white head. Nose of floral and pine hops. Medium body with good carbonation and lively mouthfeel, but yet smooth. Flavor is caramel malts, floral and pine hops and lots of bitterness. Long dry bitter finish. A classic Northwest hop monster, and very well done.

22 oz bottle from Bier Stein. Poured a very dark amber, with a huge cascading and pillowy white head that leaves fat, sticky lacing everywhere. Aroma is one of the best I’ve gotten from an IPA, just huge and intense mixture of grapefruit, peaches, oranges, pine needles and just enough caramel malt to keep it all in check. Flavor not quite as great, but still excellent mix of caramel, citrus and pine hops. Very tasty beer, one of the better ones I’ve had from Laurelwood. neepsntatties (2008) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 7, 2009
On tap at Bailey’s Taproom in Portland, OR. Colour... orange-amber with no head. Nose... very citrusy hops with a hint of Seville orange marmalade. Palate... very hoppy burst up front, tangy, piney, plenty of grapefruit zest and wedge skin. Nice! And, part of the sales help support a very good cause (see the label on the 22oz. bottles)!!

Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours a lightly hazy amber with a one finger clingy beige head. Aromas of floral and pine. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Flavor is bready caramel, floral hop, but this is overcome by a lot of resin. High IBU. It’s a little astringent. It’s hard to get at the malt, but it’s hiding below all the hop. Truly a NW hop bomb. Course having a honey mead just before this may be coloring my opinion. :) luttonm (6504) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 7, 2010
22oz bottle. Great solid western ipa. Awesome hoppy nose with beautiful pine with some citrus. Well balanced with tight malting, very smooth. A bit of a bitter end. Quintessential, rad. Gooney (389) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 9, 2009
22 oz bottle from Fred Meyer - This one had a very nice aroma. It looked like something out of a dream with a nice copper hue and a 1" creamy head to keep all the goodness in. The flavor was a bit disappointing in that it was a bit malty for my taste, but the hops more than made up for it. Nice beer. troopie (2351) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Bottle. Poured dark orange with thick foamy head. Full aroma of tangerine and pine. Bitter citrus flavour, full bodied and pleasing. Lingering hop finish. There was enough malt to keep this from being too much of a hop bomb. Tmoney99 (14626) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2010
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured clear dark amber color with an average to large frothy off-white head that lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy hop aroma. Medium to full body with a oily slick texture with lively carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. Very good brew and expectations where exceeded.
