Pours a dark amber color, and releases a fantastic, hoppy aroma. This is a citrusy, bitter ale and the floral-hop flavor puts it near the top of my list.

From a bottle at the Olympic. Bold hoppy flavor, absolutely great for hop lovers. Plenty of citrus in the finish nice to have a place in town that consistently serves this one. Rating number 100 for me.

On tap DLD08. Pours a rich orange with a white head. Aroma is citrus, piney, and floral. Taste is very nice, unforgiving hop flavor mixed with some hop flavor. This is a really excellent beer that I would recommend to all.

I bought a case of this recently, although Ive had it on draft and bottle before, this time Ive decided to rate it. Pours clear amber with nice thick tan head. Flower aroma, definitely hoppy. Medium character, outstanding taste, tons of bitterness. Definitely one to put onto the regular rotation.

Wonderful statement of cascade hops, with a clean/bold statement. Very drinkable, I can see why they did so well at the GABF !! A must try if you like Hoppy ales.

Caramel and hops greet the nose, citrus and a little pine. Why are IPA makers so fond of caramel. If you like bitter, you like bitter, why all the sweetness? Anyway, full, bitter flavor of hops and malt finishing bittersweet. A good IPA and one that I enjoy from time to time, and would more often except that its generaly a dollar or two more expensive than some other equally fine and even superior IPAs. Recommended.

one of the best pale ales ive ever had, even better now that i can get it on tap. rusted amber with a big ole santas beard on top. hops abound but balance well. notes of caramel and pomelo. love the brwery, love the beer.

Medium carbonation with a after taste of hops. Smooth brew with a nice grain taste.

Bottle from Cutters Way. Pours a nice amber color with a tan colored head. Aroma is citrus, pine, malt and slight sweetness. Taste is a citrus with bitterness up front with a sweet ending. A very good pale ale.
