I love the name and the beer. A very good IPA in the west coast hoppy tradition. Siletz is a very good brewery all of their stuff I have had is good.

Pours copper with a huge gushing tan head. Smells very tarte with chewable vitamins dominating. Tastes acidic and metallic with a messy finish. dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - JUL 4, 2009
This beer obviously has a multiple personality disorder. Half of the people think it is normal, and the other think it’s a drain pour. I opened this bottle to a gusher, despite leaving it still and chilled for a week. When I poured the beer, it filled the tall pint glass with foam. Like 100% foam. Like, you can lift up the glass and look at the bottom and only see foam.
After five minutes, an inch of cloudy, auburn beer has appeared, and the head has dropped an inch below the rim. The bottle sits in the sink and continues to foam out. Malty, yeasty, hoppy, stale aroma. I fear I got one of the bad batches. Flat, stale, bad. This beer, was hardly worth the wait. They should put warning labels on this beer.
I hate to pour out a bomber of IPA, but this must be done. :-( JJClark (551) - Roscoe, Illinois, USA - JUL 4, 2009
22 oz bottle. Pours a clear light amber color with foam, foam and more foam. The beer had to settle down for 15 minutes before I could take a drink. Aroma of piney hops and citrus. Taste of hops, citrus and spices.The flavor was not overwhelming hoppy but still hops dominated the beer. Had a semi bitter dry finish.

Bottle think it was an extra. Pours an orange body with an off white head. Floral hoppiness with earth y tones and some grass. Malty pine with some citrus. Eh.

I Love Beer and I’ve had Great ones and I’ve had bad ones! This has to be one of the latter! It tastes like a home brew that was left out in the direct sunlight all summer long! :( Not an IPA but more like a belgian golden ale with way too much yeast. Sorry Guys! I liked your Red Ale! raphael (1303) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 27, 2009
Aroma starts off peachy but turns toward grapefruit, with smoked malt also present. Clear yelllow amer body with white head that lingers. Flavors of smoke grapefruit—both the fruit & the peel. drying finish.

Aroma – Has a decent hops aroma with some dactyl also mixed in.
Appearance – Amber in color, Hazy with a light head.
Flavor – Nasty taste right from the start. The flavor was infected and just terrible.
Palate – Bad Mouthfeel, Off texture with a dry Infected finish.
Overall – Two words… Drain Pour
Wierd fruity, hoppy aroma. Very sweet, lemony tart malt backbone - very fruity, with almost a berry essence, with a big soapy component which kind of gives you the impression of Pine-Sol. Not sure what they are trying to do with drink but I suggest taking it back to the drawing board.
