Pours an orange-copper into the glass, with an initially wispy eggshell head that diminishes to spotty lacing. The nose is of floral and pine notes. Flavors follow the nose, with some orange and light grapefruit citrus mingling with pine resin and pine needles to close the finish. The citrus remains on the palate, and with a substantive mouthfeel, but easy drinkability, this shows promise in the summer months. Not too heavy, but complex enough to be a good brew with a nice quaff.

GTAEgeek (2220) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - FEB 9, 2012
On tap at Taco Mac. Pours copper with a small head. The aroma is caramel, orange rinds, and some earthy notes. The flavor is pleasantly bitter, with a good malt backbone. The palate is light to medium and uneventful. This is a good IPA, but doesn’t really stand out.

ROGUE (2215) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - SEP 21, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a clear amber color with a thin off white head that quickly dissipates. Aroma has lots of fresh, piney, grapefruit hops. The taste has gobs and gobs of grapefruit, slight mango and a little bit of pine. Grapefruit is the dominating flavor here. The end palate leaves a lingering bitterness backed up by the caramel malts. Creamy feeling body with moderate carbonation.

On draught at 1702. Pours a mostly clear orange-amber color with a fluffy off-white head. Aroma is citrusy, tropical fruits and some resin. Taste has a nice sweet malt backbone with dry bitterness. Medium bodied and oily. Bone dry finish. Pretty good and super bitter.

Arayaga2 (2198) - portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 8, 2012
Gold with a thin white head. Aroma is sweet orangey hops with a touch of caramel. Taste is the same with mild english yeast and vegetal hop character. $2/12oz

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2013 12 oz. bottle- Pours mostly clear orange with a one finger head that reduces to a blanket. Aroma is very hoppy, citrusy and pine, light malt. Taste is wonderfully hoppy, pine, malt is there but not in your face thankfully. Body is medium and carbonation is slightly high. Overall I really liked this, lately it seems all I have had in IPA’s is the balanced more malty than I’d like type, this does not shy away from the hops, which is awesome.

3.8
Bule (2166) - California, USA - MAR 30, 2013
On tap at Collin's Pub in Seattle. Pours a murky golden brown with a lot of fine head that coats the glass. Milder hop flavors that are well balanced against the alcohol. Enjoyable IPA.
