On tap at Craft, Vancouver.
Pale amber with webby eggshell foam. 4
Mango and musty lemon nose with pine forest floor. 4
Brioche with sugared tangerine, a bit of skunk, tropical fruit salad, and Sunny D hops. 4.25
Orange blossom end and long lean linger.
Medium, smooth, slightly clingy. 4

A shifty one: sweet start, some dank, citrus comeback, but long piney finish. Has that Oregon sugary malt backbone but the IBUs go on and on (especially for just 50.) A bit sweet for me - I rank it below Workhorse - but I get why this wins stuff. 4

Not quite as tasty as the standard IPA, but I'm not sure that there are any beers that are. Still such an awesome beer.

22oz bottle $6.99. Orange, clear, nice fluffy head. Aroma is citrusy, hops, and more hops. Flavor was much the same, very nice Northwest Coast IPA and almost as good as their flagship.

Poured from a 22oz bottle; poured a hazy golden color similar to a hefe with two fingers of head. Aroma was pronounced and pleasant; strong citrus nose here. Taste matched scent perfectly and mixed nicely with hops. Mouthfeel was medium, but initial sips were a bit too carbonated, much like a soda; however the beer mellowed down as it warmed up and became much more pleasant to imbibe. Overall, this is an easy-drinking and tasty, citrusy IPA.

Bottle shared by Darrell. Thank you, sir!

Clear orange body with a small, fluffy, white head. A combo of citrus and pine scents. Fresh hops with moderate bitterness. Pretty straightforward for the style. Easy drinking. Pretty good.

Bottled 8/5/14. 6.7% ABV per the label.

Pours a murky golden-yellow with a foamy tan head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy patches of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of citrus fruit, citrus zest, and tropical fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with citrus fruit and citrus zest flavors on the finish. There is a mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a good beer with a tasty mix of citrus and tropical hop qualities.

Serving type: bottle.

22 oz bottle. Pours clear light yellow with a medium frothy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is some bready (slight crystal) malts with sweet tropical fruit and piney hops.

The flavor is sweet tropical fruits with a big resiny bitterness. The mouthfeel is a bit thin and watery.

Overall, nice tropical fruit, resiny IPA, a bit thin and watery though.

On tap art the brewery today.

A clear amber with a dense off white head with good retention and nice lacing, this is a solid looking IPA. The nose is loaded with hops with pine, oranges, citrus peel, mild tropical and floral notes. The palate is bright, fruity and moderately bitter with honey, orange peel, some grapefruit, and pine. The mid palate has a mild honey sweetened with a mild butteriness that's distracting. Solid stuff , nice flavors here.
