Bought this in August in Portland and brought it back to Vancouver Island. Forgot about in the basement until this weekend. What a nice surprise when I cracked open this little beauty. A mouthful of elegant hops and bitter citrus that permeates the taste buds. Delicious!

Darwenus (934) - Virginia, USA - OCT 20, 2016
Im a litle late getting this, but this bottle is delicious regardless of its age. It pours cloudy orange with average head and carbonation. The aroma is grapefruiit/citrus and slightly sweet malt notes. The flavor hits hard with that citrus. Grapefruit, and then a lemon meringue, sweet finish. I liked this beer.

On tap at St Augustines, Vancouver. Very cloudy apricot pour with a white head. Big fruit aroma and flavour, nectarine, citrus, a touch metallic. Very flavourful, good bitterness, and not at all cloying. Nice IPA.

teamsale (217) - Washington, USA - JUL 26, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear yellow with a finger thick white head and good lacing. Smells very woodsy, some olive, mild grapefruit, light tangerine, a hint of rotten eggs. Tastes light and mild, citrus flavor. Mild bitterness, more medium in the aftertaste. More pluses than minuses.
