Cask at the brewpub.
Deep amber brew with some sparse head. Huge citrus aroma - mango, grapefruit, orange peel. Flavor is a bit thin and lacking overall - caramel malt, floral and citrus hops.
Very nice orange color and fine white head. Hoppy flavor but bitter, strange palate. Not my favorite but its ok. Shink (177) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 29, 2012
A bottle to go from the SE location. Pours a clear golden color with a fading white head. Pleasant hoppy aroma. Slightly malty and fairly hoppy taste. I find it very pleasant. A pretty solid beer. 3fourths (9367) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2011
draft. amber orange with faint haze and a thin off-white head. fruit-forward hop nose (grapefruit, mango, mandarin orange) with minimal malt and lightly dirty yeast (homebrew-like). suffers from flabby texture and watery body but the hop flavors are presented well, though bitterness and acid are both too low. decent IPA that doesn’t demand your attention but like most things from this brewery it doesn’t stand out in a city and state full of IPAs. unclemattie (4406) - Georgia, USA - AUG 12, 2006
CarlSing brought us to this brewpub in Portland. Amber color, very crisp hop flavor. nice flavor.

Was hoping to sample the Dog Day IPA, but settled for this at the NW Portland area LL Brew Pub.
Could’ve been a bit hoppier, but nonetheless tasty and smooth enough to keep on track with this instead of hopping around to the other choices available at the Brew Pub.
What you would expect from a good IPA, citrusy, bitter, tasty.

On tap at LL Brewery on Quimby. Poured a copper color with white head. Aroma was hoppy but not astringent and the taste was similar. The mouthfeel was not too viscous. I enjoyed this the more I drank it. Also, these IPAs are somewhat of an experiment and taste-and-see type thing, so props to LL for the experimentation.
