Draught at Bailey’s Taproom, Portland. Good citrusy, grapefruit aroma with a touch of manure. Gold/straw color, big creamy head, lots of carb. Solid balanced initial; hops rise into the nose in mid palate; juicy, lemony finish. Medium-thick body. Very creamy, like a light beer pudding or a hoppy meringue. Very good stuff. mrhoppy (1196) - Santa Clara, California, USA - JUL 26, 2012
This is a tasty staight forward bitter IPA at a good price. Excellent flavor and well crafted. Very fresh tasting. jgb9348 (6480) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 15, 2012
Hazy copper coloured body with a lighter amber and bronzish glow with a thick, five centimetre tall tan head - nice, actually! Aroma of fresh grapefruity and piney hops with a bit of resin and some nice sugars and malt finishing up the nose - mouth watering and very cascadey and PNWy hops. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and herbal hops up front that fade a bit soon afterwards, but reassert themselves at the tail end with some resiny notes, all in the middle with a good malt backbone, a hint of sugars and a little grassy and herbal complexity. Aftertaste is nice and bittering from the hops and not in a horribly pungent way, but the flavours abound are very nice and show greatly. I love the choice and nature of these beers and how readily available they are in PNW - this is another fine example of a beer that I wish I could get all the time here at home, but it’s a few hours away by plane to grab a bunch then return. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Belmont Station in Portland, Oregon on 28-February-2012 for US$4.15 sampled at home in Washington (the real Washington - not the next-door neighbour of Oregon) on 15-July-2012.

Really great. The aroma is citrussy nw hop scents. Great residual on palate, not too much but the taste is there and hops right on point. Malt backs up the hop, good blend. Overall really nice ipa bu11zeye (13215) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUN 25, 2012
(22oz bottle) Pours a lightly hazy orange body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of orange, pineapple, grapefruit, caramel, and grass. Flavor of orange, grapefruit, caramel, and grass with a dry, bitter finish.

On tap at Suds and Suds. Average India Pale Ale. Bitter and citrus flavors mixed with a malty background. A bit off in the middle. The Finish is nice and bitter. blutt59 (6579) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 14, 2012

(22oz bomber thanks to bu11zeye) clearish medium amber, creamy offwhite head. Nose of melon, very light bitterness, cocoa, lemon, marshmallow. Taste of cream, agave, light butter, mild bitterness, medium body and light bitterness. Easy to drink. Ferris (16507) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 31, 2012
Draft - Hoppy nose, ruddy orange with thick head. Very bitter with a medicinal quality that is just unrefined. Considering how good Hop Fury is from the same brewer a real disappointment. kathouse (1940) - LAS VEGAS, Nevada, USA - MAY 27, 2012
Cloudy orange color, this IPA is typical standard fare. Cascade and Centennial hop aroma and flavor. Bitter without a solid body. Just not my type.
