On tap at WM--Poured a hazy copper-amber with a non-existent head. Big hoppy, floral and malty nose. Sticky, resinous and piny. Maintained a thick, rich IPA flavor that was much desired. boFNjackson (4201) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 30, 2007
Tap... Poured a hazy ruby color, served with pretty much no head. Floral, hop and malt aroma. Contained a nice fruity/floral essence with a mild bitter grainy/hop finish. I could drink this 24/7. beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - SEP 2, 2007
Tasted on tap at the 10th Annual Bistro IPA Festival. This IPA pours a medium orange gold color. Small to medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is piney and citrusy. Medium bodied India Pale Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are piney and grapefruity. Nice balance. Finishes very dry that lasts a long time. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is crisp and dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter and dry. IrishBoy (4200) - Bakersfield, California, USA - AUG 15, 2007
Draft at The Bistro’s IPA Fest; nose of light lemon; clear amber with a medium, yellow-tinged head; flavor of light hop bitterness and caramel. DYCSoccer17 (3698) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 13, 2007
5 ounce sample tasted at Bistro’s IPA Festival. Extremely faint, almost non-existant aroma. MAYBE there is some earthy hop notes present, but really quite disappointing. Transparent copper color with a relatively quickly dissipating off-white head. Very spritzy, carbonated, grapefruity hop flavored start. Somewhat grainy in the middle. Dry, carbonated, grapefruity bitter finish. Straight-forward. Meh.

Draft at the 3 Rivers Restaurant in Hood River - Poured a slightly orange amber in color with a small white head. Aroma was fruity with plenty of citrus hops. Flavor was mostly hops (that is not a bad thing), but there was no malt balance. A good beer, but not outstanding. DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - JUL 28, 2007
Draft at Nora’s Fish House in Hood River, OR on 7/19/07. Clear amber, large creamy white head, and superior lace. Aroma of light stone fruits and toffee combined nicely with some spice and citrus hop notes. Medium body and carboantion, slightly resinous, yet smooth and satisfying. Beautiful balance between light malt flavors and assertive citrus based bitterness. The lengthy dry finish was clean and crisp. This is a beautifully crafted beer.

Beautiful slightly hazy golden-amber. Deep, intense hop fruits (mango, orange, kumquat, wood) with some of the freshest pale malts to come through the nose of a hoppy beer. A feat even by PNW standards. Gorgeous....large bitterness from hops that flirt with florals and citrus before settling on woody. Clean, fresh-tasting, pale malts. Bracingly hoppy dry finish with that little bit of resininess to make sure you know you’re drinking a properly-hopped IPA. Skyview (6055) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 14, 2007
Sampled on tap at the brewpub in Stevenson, Washington during ABA Beer Tour ’07. Pours a semi-cloudy golden amber brew with a slowly dissolving white head that leaves behind a decent lacing. Aroma of light grapefruit and piney hops, and just a touch of biscuit-like malt. Taste is average carbonated, medium bodied with a sweet citrus flavor. Finish is light, crisp with a melon and sweet citrus aftertaste. Not as dry as their other IPAs. BuckeyeBoy (7684) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 4, 2007
On tap at BrewPub Pours out a cloudy amber topped with a nice head. Nice floral hops on this 7.2% IPA.
