I really enjoyed this (on tap at Papa Joe’s), lots of hop flavor without the overpowering tartness. Hazy amber with a small creamy head, mild pine bitterness, abrupt finish. Enjoyable and highly drinkable. bhensonb (15768) - 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! 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. 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. DialSquare (5133) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 10, 2014
Can courtesy of Brooke (thanks!). Copper pour, frothy off-white. Aroma of fresh hop, grapefruit, pine. Tastes are evergreen, orange, grapefruit, woody. Little dry in the finish. Great balance, very nice.

12 oz can poured. Pours a light cloudy orange color with a lasting foam head. Orange, and hop forward aroma and flavor. Light bitter, huge flavor hop finish. Very tasty IPA for sure. Solid. harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 21, 2003
I have to agree I had this one back in July and did not have the pleasure of drinking it out of a proper glass. This is a great tasting beer going down, not to heavy and not to light, but just right. Very hoppy and citrusy, if you liked SN Celebration you will definitely like this. pinkzambia (2073) - Boise, Idaho, USA - DEC 22, 2005
On Tap at brewpub: Cloudy gold with a case of lacing all over the glass. As one would expect, the aromas and tastes were hops, juniper berries with a nice, initial bitter-taste. The feel is creamy and pleasant. Perhaps, the best Idaho micro IPA. jake65 (4000) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - SEP 20, 2006
Draft: Dark orange / amber pour with a nice frothy head. Solid blend of floral and citrus hops, a little bit of pine, and some malts to balance. A well done IPA from Sockeye! 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 9, 2007
Draught @ Kahootz: Fiery golden, fairly clear, moderate off-white head, nice lacing, light carbonation.   Good strong hop nose,
very slight earth aspect.   Good balance of hops and malt on the tongue, earthy, a little soily, otherwise good old citrus bitterness.
Fairly full bodied, flavor lasts from start to finish.   Not whimpy and yet not raw.   Solid example!
