Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a coppery orange amber. One finger fine whtie head with good retention and lacing. Muted aroma of sweet malt and a hint of citrus, very slight hops. Flavor is well integrated sweet, slightly biscuity malt and grassy hops. Finish brings out a bit more spicy hops leaving a pleasant hops aftertaste. Medium bodied with a bit of creaminess and nice active carbonation. This is certainly not a hop forward IPA, but I liked the melding of the hops and malt. On the mellow end of the IPA spectrum, but enjoyable.

On draft while in Seattle, but I forget what the bar was called. Pours hazy orange with light frothy head. Smells of straight pine and very little else. I can tell this is going to highlight bitter hops. Flavor is an explosion of pine cones and some grapefruit, big bitter, slightly slick and resinous. Medium mouthfeel, with a strong bite on the finish. Good IPA for those who like hop-forward brews.

12 oz bottle.

A- Deep hazy copper color with white 1 finger head. Decent lacing.

S- Unfortunately, this might not be the freshest bottle because I am not getting a lot of hops in the smell. Slight citrus hops and big malt. Fresh on tap, this beer has a nice floral nose.

T- Taste is better than the smell. The hops are much more present. Great balance with this beer.

M- Medium mouthfeel with good carbonation. I like the drink of this beer a lot. Very satisfying.

O- This brewery was my local watering hole when I worked in Enterprise for the Forest Service. This was my first IPA I really got into. The other option was Deschutes Quail Springs at the time and this was much hoppier. How times have changed. :) I still really enjoy this beer and pick it over many "newer" IPAs today.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A: deep golden honey with hints of orange; good head
S: some malt, bright Meyer lemons; one dimensional
T: rich and full but not complex; wish there was more fesh hops instead of malt domination; nicely balanced, some bitterness
M: rich, fully
O: a pretty good beer that I'd like to try on tap or maybe a fresher bottle. Wish the alcohol level was a little lower than the 6.9%.

One of many post-climbing pints enjoyed from Terrebonne Depot.

Hazed amber with a respectable white head that laces very solidly.

Somewhat blunt aromas of bready malts and pine with hints of zesty herbs now and again. Seems a bit unharmonious.

Seductive earthy toffee malts meld satisfyingly with a clean, piney bitternes. Straightforward, but terrific balance.

Medium bodied with moderate and even bitternesss. Lively carbonation gives it terrific vibrancy across the palate.

Highly drinkable and well rounded IPA that didn't do a lot for me the first time I tried it but got better every time I tried it.

Hmmm...a distinct IPA for sure. The color was a caramel color with a bit of orange tint. The head was adequate, enduring, and left a nice lacing. The smell was weak. I like an IPA that really grabs my nose and opens it like a shot of Vick's Vaporub. The tast is what grabbed my attention...bisquits...not usually associated with an IPA. A little lacking on the hops side of the equation. Enjoyed the swirl before the swallow and overall...an enjoyable brew. Kinda reminded be of Fat Tire meets Hop Stoopid.
