Appearance - Brilliant orange to light amber, hazed over, persistent head, big time sticky lacing. Very nice look.

Aroma - Big fruity nose, stone fruits, sweet and piney, citrusy grapefruit pith and rind, some toasty/caramel sweet malts

Feel/Taste - Super smooth carb and feel, medium body. Taste is remarkably well balanced, yet ridiculously hoppy at the same time. Like the nose: stone fruits, citrus pith and peel, and pine resin hops pack a quite bitter punch; hops stick and linger for a long time. Providing some much needed balance are lightly sweet, toasty, caramel malts. Resin bitterness lingers on and on.

Overall - Really nice IPA, but you'd better be game for a bitter, hoppy slap in the mouth hole. I'm somewhat of a hop-head, and I even found it quite bitter. Thank goodness for that smooth, slightly sweet malt backbone! A badass IPA - good show, Sockeye! This is better than the vast majority of widely distributed IPAs I've had.

I really enjoyed this (on tap at Papa Joe’s), lots of hop flavor without the overpowering tartness. Hazy amber with a small creamy head, mild pine bitterness, abrupt finish. Enjoyable and highly drinkable.
