Keg at the taproom, 07/11/14.
Lightly hazed golden with a decent off white covering, good lacing ensues.
Nose is bitter orange, citric pith, melon, orange squash, earthy hop tunes.
Taste comprises light pine, straw, grapefruit, bitter orange.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
Adequate IPA. Ferris (15004) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 7, 2014
Draft - Piny Skunky hops, very fresh. Cloudy gold with nice rich beige head. Piny hops, with an upfront bitter hit and tropical fruit in the finish. Bitterness is a bit much for me. slowrunner77 (11917) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 11, 2014
"Dark pour. Body like a double, big and smooth without the alcohol. Malt forward with a very pleasant fruitiness, though the hops do get drowned out a little. Not bad, not great." DuffMan (10270) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 13, 2015
Can. Gusher! Hazy deep golden, massive head. Grapefruit and pine, sour tang, scathing aspirin bitterness. Not enjoyable. marcus (10142) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 2, 2015
Can shared by haggerty. Pours orange amber with a modest off-white head and a citrus aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor with a very bitter grapefruit finish.

Hazy copper under a nice foamy off-white head. Pretty nice nose of sweet fruity caramel with some papaya and mango hops, perhaps a bit of pine and raw coconut as well. Really interesting hop nose. The flavor is a bit yeasty and muddled but thereís this bright tropical tone shining through, with some nice piney bitterness and some rich cracker-y caramel. Itís noticeably flawed but I still find it tasty. douglas88 (9049) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 26, 2013
16 ounce can from Beermongers. Pours a dark copper color with a large white head. A sweet nose of fruit, oranges especially, caramel. The flavor is quite nice: lemons, sweet perfume, some toffee, caramel, lemon rind, medium bitterness especially in the finish. Quite good. A sort of grainy earthy finish with bitter hops. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - JUL 5, 2012
16-oz can. Pours a murky medium amber with a gigantic dense and creamy tan head. Stringy lace here and there. Looks magnificent. Mild sweet lettuce-y nose. OK, already...I realize itís a tough year for hops, but IPAs are really not supposed to smell like iceberg lettuce, even if it does happen to be spanking fresh iceberg straight out of a chilly wash. Itís crisp and sweet and all, but itís more on the savory salad side and even at that itís not too deep into the good part of the salad side of the plate. Maybe they will bump up to a more dimensional and complex hop when yields go up again next year to meet demand. Anyway, the beer--it smells OK, but itís neither on the fruity nor the piney side. Creamy body on the high side of medium, with soft carb. Caramel and toast happening, and hereís where the hop profile could really bolster the beer. The malts have a fair bit to do with the flavor profile, appropriately so. But the hops just arenít going blow for blow with them the way this is set up. Itís a nice beer but it needs a bit more power. Sledutah (7488) - Utah, USA - FEB 12, 2015
16oz can picked up at Total Wine AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - DEC 26, 2012
A volcano erupted when I opened it up. Lost half of the can on my desk, floor and finally made it to the garbage can. Pours cloudy golden with a huge off-white head, good lacing. Aroma is floral, dusty, grapefruit and pine. Flavor is bitter grapefruit, pine, fruity and very bitter, dry
Not balanced, a very bitter finish. Would have been footbalmed if I had a whole can.
Hazy amber color with a huge rocky head. Dusty pale malt, dry hay, mild floral aromas. light body, average carbonation. Dry pale malt, caramel flavors with dusty hoppage--too dry for the style
