Really nice, clean, drinkable IIPA. Nothing over the top but a thumbs-up to Red Hook for this one. 24 karat tangerine pour with a fluffy white head that left and intricate web of lacing inside the glass. Aroma is bright grapefruit, orange pith, lemon peel, and subtle caramel. Flavor is all citrus with hints of pine/resin, and honey. ABV is well masked...ample carbonation. bpreo (3011) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - OCT 30, 2017
A good strong IPA. Not just for IPA lovers, as Chandra (who dislikes IPA’s) liked it too. Snojerk321 (2984) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 4, 2010
22oz bottle. Pours a mostly clear golden orange with a big frothy white head that left some great lacing. Light metallics in the nose, along with some bitter citrus hops. Good hop bitterness on the finish. Light alcohol sting remains on the tongue. cbkschubert (2901) - BFE, Arizona, USA - MAR 15, 2011
22 oz. bottle from Total Wine (Phoenix) - Pours a clear golden color with a 3/4 finger thick off white head. Light spotty lacing. Aroma is light toasted malt, and pine and herbal hops. Flavor is lightly sweetened toasted malt with a nice dose of pine, herbal, and light citrus hops. Finish is somewhat bitter and not too astringent. Medium body. A good beer for Red Hook. I like it better than Long Hammer. Hophead22 (2879) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - SEP 12, 2010
22oz bottle. Rating #60. Bright orange/dark gold color with a thin white head. Lots of citrus and a bit of pine, but the fruit is the dominant aroma to me. Very smooth, light bitterness and a bit thin, light sweetness and a bit tropical. Not bad stuff. (1401)

22 oz bomber bought from "Habits" in Salem.
Its actually a very pretty beer to look at. Deep burnished orange, clear, with a nice thick and creamy off white head.
Aroma is reasonably hoppy..more along the pink grapfruit aroma ..whiff of alcohol.
Very resiny hop profile to the taste..then the pink grapfruit aspect shows near the end. Slight bitter after taste.
Palte is OK but strangely watery for such a substantial style.
Overall its not a bad beer but pretty lightweight for the style . savnac (2656) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUL 2, 2010
22 oz bottle. Clear light amber with a big rocky beige head that leaves some lacing. Aroma of biscuits, light herbal, citrus and floral hops and lighter caramel. Mostly sweet English malt flavors with a smooth mild bitterness, not much alcohol in the taste but there is a slightly metallic finish. Medium body, mild carbonation and a slightly watery mouth feel. Pretty good for Redhook, but tasted more like a strong ESB to me. SuperDave (2555) - Beautiful Sunny Mesa, Arizona, USA - JAN 8, 2011
Orangeish pour with a foamy head. Aroma of sweet malt and spicy and citrusy hops. Flavor is more of the same. A good, but sort of one dimensional brew. StefanSD (2468) - Ouray, Colorado, USA - JUN 12, 2010
650 ml bottle from Bev4less. Fresh sample, rated only 30 days after the bottling date of 06 May 10. Pours a translucent copper color with a small white head the soon recedes to a fine film. The aroma is mild with pine, grapefruit and soap. The flavor is hoppy and soapy, with biter pine and citrus giving way Palmolive dish washing liquid. Somewhere in there is a bit of caramel and some biscuit too. The palate is full and smooth with fizzy carbonation. The finish is long with lingering biter hops. Overall: meh SDalkoholic (2444) - Linda Vista, California, USA - SEP 24, 2013
Bottle from Pacific Liquor: Color is a copper brass like color and had created a soft fluffy topping for a head which broke down instantly. Mild aroma of hops and bread like malts. The flavor is bitter with a decent serving of hops that leaves behind a salty and metallic finish.
