Nice golden clear color. Heavy hop on the nose.head was white/off white. Was recommended by another hop head at Buffalo Wild Wings here in Anchorage. Was a solid grapefruity and floral taste. Very citrusy. Only thing I wasnt to thrilled abnout was mouth. It was mquite watery and very fizzy. The fizz was less bothersome than the watery feel. (342 characters)

Great IPA, wished for a hint more of bitterness but over all a great IPA. The color dosnt tickle my fancy as it looks like a bud light when poured but the flavor smacks you in the mouth just like an IPA is suppose to. will definitely drink this if its on tap at the pubs. (271 characters)

There is something special about the way King Street does their IPA. I personally think it is the clean water and close access Washington hops. But it also takes a good brewer to make a good IPA!
Pours a gold color with a fluffy white head. Smells of citrus, grass and a slight banana. Up front you get a full hoppy flavor that is fresh. It's almost like a wet hop! The citrus notes are there but not too much. You will love this IPA if you are a Hop ahead! (457 characters)

Poured from a can into my imperial pint glass, a little cooler than cellar temperature.

It's got a beautiful, golden-orange, honey-like hue, with stunning clarity revealing copious, fine streams of carbonation. The head is one finger, just off-white, and lingers a respectable duration. 4.58.

Awesome tropical fruitiness wafts out of the glass, with bodacious, herbaceous pine. Damn fine. 4.64.

And I continue to be further impressed when I take my first sip. Juicy, zesty citrus mingles with a daringly dank, piney, hoppy bitterness that I'm used to finding in IMPERIAL IPAs. Lovely, dry breadiness cleans up the finish and rounds out this fantastic flavor profile. 4.9.

The feel is terrific as well. Quite substantial in body and viscosity. 4.53.

I am seriously impressed here. Superb balance and intensity of wonderfully complementary IPA flavors that are right up my alley. (882 characters)
