Light notes of hops and citrus. Light and watery upfront but the hops hit you in the end. Medium mouthfeel. Bottle. legion242 (2348) - Richardson, Texas, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Poured a medium orange with a fluffy, lively head. Soft nose go grassy hops. Pleasant in the mouth with nice malt balancing the hops. Leafs93 (2343) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Pours clear reddish orange with a white head. Aroma is citrus, pine and florals. Taste is bittersweet with the bitters lasting throughout. Light mouthfeel with a crisp refreshing finish. craftycarl21 (2338) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 15, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 29, 2012 On tap in DC at Kramerbooks Cafe. Cloudy amber pour. Nose holds decent grapefruit, lemon, pine, and earthy hop on the nose, but the flavor tastes too oxidized, with heavy malt presence. Unfortunate, really not impressed.
Rerate- draft at Churchkey. Much better, with more lean west coast style hop bitterness with pine sap and touches of white grapefruit. A definite improvement, less oxidation this time around. milewide (2332) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUL 24, 2013
Fine hop aroma and taste. Medium hop bitterness in aftertaste. Too filtered for my taste. 12 oz. bottle.

Bottle. Aroma of tropical fruit, resin, and pine. Slight vegetable notes too. Taste of resin and peach, fairly bitter. Good body. Bule (2309) - 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.

Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – Served an orange-amber colored brew with a one finger white head. The head has fairly good retention, eventually fading to give a nice level of lacing.
Smell – The aroma is a nice abundance of sweet citrus and some lighter tropical fruit as well as more bitter hop smells of a grapefruit and pine nature.
Taste – The taste begins with a strong bready base with some light caramel sweetness and a mild grapefruit hop bitterness. As the taste advances further the caramel is lost to lighter fruit flavors in nature. While this occurs so to does the citrus grapefruit bitterness increases. As time advances however the grapefruit hop flavor gives way to a piney hop flavor, which at the end of the taste, leaves a bitter yet fairly balanced flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the slightly creamier side with the carbonation level being below average and light. The combination of the two overall, gave it more of a cask beer feel, which was nice for the hoppy and malty flavors of the brew.
Overall – A pretty nice IPA with a good balance between breadiness, sweetness, and hop. Well worth a try.
