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.

Clear amber color with a small white head.
Sweet marmalade, sweet fruity hops, mild bitterness, sweet caramel malt and biscuits in the aroma.
Strong resiny hops, strong bitterness and caramel malt in the flavor.

355ml can. Canned 07/2017. Big thanks to Euphemos for this one!
Pours amber in color with a thick white head.
Caramel malty nose, canned fruity with strong piny notes.
Flavor has caramel sweetness, malts, hops, pine, massive bitterness in finish. Not very fresh anymore. My first from Idaho! tntracey (111) - Hood River, Oregon, USA - OCT 26, 2017
12 oz can poured into a pint glass. A well balanced IPA that serves the purpose. Doesn't taste like the 100 IBU suggests it might. This is to say, it's not an IPA that burns your tonsils right out of your mouth. It's a great thing that I have have a case of this beer!

Picked up a 6-pack in Boise, ID. Pours amber with head and lace. Aroma of grains, pale malt, grassy hops. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of bitter hops, pale malt, bitter roots. Overall rich and bitter, but not especially smooth or tasty.

Can from World Beer Market. Big fat tropical fruit nose, with biscuits, citrus, and some piney hop. Clear amber/orange color. Moderately sweet initial flavor, with caramel, resin, grapefruit, and mild but long bitter tracks. Medium body, with some hop texture. Very nice IPA. j12601 (13304) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 31, 2017

Draught at Bar Gernika. Pours clear copper with a medium, bubbly white head, medium retention with light lacing. Aroma is heavy citrus and pine hops with medium toast and nutty malt. Flavor is moderate citrus and pine hops and bitterness, toast malt with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation. jefcon (1935) - Arlington, Virginia, USA - JUL 22, 2017
Light aromas of cereal and lemon. Nice and bitter, finishes dry, oranges, lemon, tangerine, some scrubby pine and a plain backing malt. natejgood (533) - Bozeman, Montana, USA - JUL 8, 2017
Pours a darkish golden orange with a nice sized head that is also slightly orange. The beer is hazy in the glass. Between the head, the color and the hazy completion this beer looks like it has good body. Aroma of tropical fruits and a slight amount of molasses and caramel. The molasses and caramel comes through in the flavor, backed up by a decent hop punch. Not exactly crisp in the mouth, but not overly thick either.
