Hazy golden color. The aroma gives some delicate peach, but it could be better defined. The mouthfeel is lean, dry; the malt profile is anonymous; good bitterness level with nice fruity component (peaches and mango), but suffering from being too dry, papery.
Pleasant, but more APA than IPA.

Hazy amber color. Easy Ale, well bitter, with some malt flavor. Golden Ale, more than IPA.

Hazy deep blond color; creamy head. There are some nice hops in the aroma, but very light. Some lost malt flavor, strong hopping, but with limited resins and interest. With the Porter, it’s the more balanced than the other beers here, quite ok.
On tap at Steamworks, Vancouver. Pale copper/gold, thin white head. Excellent hop, rather intense hop, but the structure is great. Great malt and creaminess, followed by a hit of intense bitter hops, faint grapefruit, but very intense. Full in mouth, not overly piney. Soft and full in mouth and then intense bitter finish. saxo (18208) - Hřjbjerg, Aarhus, DENMARK - JUL 8, 2012
Tap @ Steamworks, Vancouver. Nice head with good duration. Color is golden. Aroma and taste grass, soap, malt and hops. A little boring and too few hops present. TBone (17442) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 22, 2011

Deep honey golden color, small white head, lace. Pine needles in the aroma. Medium-bodied. Piney, slightly resiny flavor with pine needles in the aftertaste. Clean, easy to drink. Classic NW IPA.
UPDATED: AUG 9, 2016 Hazy dirty blonde. The aroma is quite fruity- blueberry, pear, and mellow citrus. Has a fair bit of bitterness, nice fruity hop character. there’s definitely some chewiness in the finish, but a solid IPA. mcberko (17258) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 22, 2009
Golden amber, with a fairly hoppy aroma. Taste has a good amount of bitterness. Well-balanced. Good IPA. brokensail (16436) - Dublin, California, USA - AUG 26, 2014
On tap @ Steamworks. Golden pour with a white head. Quite piney and a bit herbal. Some grapefruit, melon, and orange peel. Light caramel and bready malt. Flavor is lightly sweet up front and fairly bitter on the back end. A lot of grapefruit and pine. Some fresh herbs and a bit of citrus peel. Slightly grassy as it warms.

Draft - Lots of grapefruit and some piney notes. Clear gold with a decent white head. Bitter citrus and pine notes. Solid. Sammy (12099) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2008
On-tap in Gastown. An off-bitterness that is astringent.Kent Goldings and Mount Hood hops, but it didn’t work for me. Orangey colour, some lace. Under average IPA.
