Dark amber pour with a persistent off white fairly thick head. Citrus / pine aroma. Nice smooth malt flavor with a tinge of bitterness. Medium body and good carbonation. Great beer! Bulk_Carrier (6065) - Vermont, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance had a shaded orange to copper color with a glazed over brownish tints closer to the center of the glass. There was a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute leaving some light lacing here and there.
The smell had a sharp grapefruit to citrus (slightly tropical and enticing) with a light pine weaving it’s way in the aroma.
The taste was pure bittersweet arranging a nice orange flavoring to come out nicely.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a pretty good acceptable sharpness normally tasted in an AIPA coming from the Northwest.
Overall, pretty good AIPA that I would definitely have again. JohnGalt1 (1721) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 21, 2014
1/2" foamy white head has very nice retention and lacing... the brew is a hazed orange.
I can easily smell this brew 2 feet away... pungent pithy citrus... minor pale malt with even a little bit of toasty presence... but this brew is all about the hops... unapologetic.
Huge bitterness... oily citrus zest... lite pale malts mid palate along with the noted toasty malt element... finishes long and hoppy... really pretty dry throughout.... Honestly, the only "real"
bitch I could even remotely come up with is the bitterness up front may be a touch high... but I would never complain.
I forgot how much I like this one... Any NW IPA lover would certainly put this into their rotation if they had access. bhensonb (15752) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Can from Brewforia. Pours orange gold with an off-wite head. Aroma seems strong mix of citrus and resin. Med body. Flavor is really strong resin/citrus hop over a somewhat roasty caramel base. It finishes dry and bitter. Pretty hoppy ale! NeoHippie2 (1074) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 27, 2014
Can courtesy of Lectvay, thanks man! Hazy copper pour with a white head. Aroma is big resinous hops. Flavor is bitter citrus peel hops but not quite as hoppy as the nose. Decent brew, not as complex as other IPAs but still a solid offering.

Can. Pours a hazy dark copper with noce lacing and white head. Great looking beer. Aroma is lacking. Taste is bitter, slight citrus. Nothing great, slight metallic taste. TXBadger (2811) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 30, 2014
A nice west coast style IPA, big on the grapefruit tones. Pours a nice amber color with white head. Citrus, grapefruit, and pine on the nose; all follow onto the palate. Finishes smooth. sebletitje (10293) - Enghien, BELGIUM - APR 19, 2014
33cl can in Brussels via trade with BuckeyeBoy.
Orangée sur un léger trouble, col blanc cassé.
Arôme est houblonné modéré, pointe fruitée sur qcq effluves citronnées.
Palais est axé sur un malté agréable, houblonné moyen sur une petite pointe citronnée. Palais est râpeux avec des pointes herbacées et un fruité rappelant le pamplemousse voire un léger côté mandarine ponctué par un léger herbacé-pin. Bartzilla (624) - La Mesa, California, USA - MAR 23, 2014
Pretty good. Definitely northwest style. Bitter but finished a little sweet yet dry. Good stuff. Smell and appearance are what you expect for the style. No problems with it. Just not my favorite style of IPA. timspnb (1) - Garden City, Idaho, USA - MAR 3, 2014 does not count
Great Northwest style IPA. Distinct hop aroma with malt balance.Nice carbonation and head retention in a can. Had it draft at Mountain Brewers Festival in Idaho Falls. Awesome!!!!!
