A good though not exceptional IPA, on tap at Capones Restaurant. Big IBU, fruity and orange. Spider lace. Decent drinkability, however some bleach in the finish.

slowrunner77 (11487) - Reno, Nevada, USA - AUG 26, 2014
not sure of the freshness of this one, but its what they were serving at Canfest. Medium bitterness and florals. Understated hop aroma and flavor as far as the citrus and pine is concerned. OK, but definitely nothing that makes me see the high rank. i like the Trader Session Ipa MARKEDLY BETTER.

12 oz bottle. BB 10/03/14. From a kiosk in Portland, OR.
Hazy orangey golden color with a small white head. Citrusy hops, lemon, mild bitterness and dry grainy malt in the aroma. The flavor is... old hops... shit... I didnt check the BB date before buying... Theres old hops, mild bitterness and dryness in the flavor. Needs a rerate.
And the rerate is coming much sooner than I thought...
12 oz can. BB 1/8/16. (Beermongers) Portland, OR.
Deep golden color with a small white head. Citrusy and piney hops, some bitterness and dryness in the aroma. The flavor is... fresh... citrusy and piney hops, moderate bitterness... Tasty.

Cask at the Atlanta Cask Ale fest. Pours a clear gold with a slight amber hue and a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a combination of sweet grains and grassy hops with a hint of resin. Flavor has much more resin and pine up front that mellow to grass with a sweet grain backbone.

adnielsen (10584) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 25, 2011
Bottle @ home. Pretty cool puke green, recycled paper label. Moderately hazy dark orange appearance with a fluffy white head. Really a nice grapefruit, orange citrusy, slightly piney hoppy, sweet pale malty aroma. Dessert pale malty, slightly spicy, grapefruit citrusy hoppy flavor. Booze is hidden well. Surprisingly a pretty nice IPA.
