Poured into a Reuben's Brew pint glass. Pours a medium coppery amber with a two finger off-white head with good retention and lots of lacing. Nice aroma of caramel malt, tropical fruit, orange citrus and light piney hops. Flavor is pine and citrus hops, citrus rind, rich tropical and orange family citus, full flavored and well balanced; long lingering piney hop flavor and bitterness. Medium bodied with some creaminess, nice mouth feel. A intensely flavored malty and fruit flavored IPA that also packs a piney hop punch. Well balanced and nicely made, like the other ales from this brewery.

I a free with Dirtyal on his assessment. Right away the Hops are uo front and the Bitterness hangs with you. They knew what they were doing when they brewed this one. I was discussing IPA's with a long time Seattle beer drinker and his opinion is a lot of brewers are hoping up beer to much... I think it is a matter of new taste and those enjoying it.

on-tap @ the brewery

Have had this many, many time - my favorite Reubens beer (narrowly over the Imperial Rye) - dank citrus hops, sugary grapefruit, candied orange peel, pine - bright, clean and balanced. Booze present, but in check. Body is a little big, but only a minor flaw - this is very good stuff.

On tap into a 4oz sampler glass @ the brewery. Pours a clear coppery golden color.

Aroma is a burst of grapefruit and orange, some pine too. Smells tantalizing.

Taste follows nose. Tons of citrusy tropical hops laid upon an abundant backbone of neutral pale malt. Alcohol content is evident as a warming toward the finish. This is maybe a little sweeter than most DIPAs.

Mouthfeel is medium-bodied and balanced, typical DIPA.

Overall a big, flavorful beer that packs a punch.
