22oz bottle at 41 F poured into a nonic pint glass. No date that I saw, which is a bit of a surprise.

Pours clear, darkish amber, medium-small head, lots of carbonation. Smell is nice, honeysuckle, flowers, pine, and citrus.

Taste is...good. Not stellar, but pretty solid. Next time I go to a Mariners game (when the White Sox are in town), I hope this is available in the Pyramid beer garden, because it's better than their other beers. Hefty bitterness, lots of sweetness, maybe lacking a little in any specific characteristics.

Mouthfeel is thickish and reminds me very much of the mouthfeel of Coke. Overall, it's a not a bad beer by any means, but it's also not excellent.

22 oz bottle bought from a local convenience store. $2.99 Hazy darker golden body with a lovely creamy and thick eggshell white head. Aromas are of fruity, floral hops. papaya, mango, sweet cherry and flowers. Taste is similar to the aroma..but less sweet, balanced by a chunky caramel malts and a drying alcohol presence , which helps the tsste this time and does not detract. Nice medium mouth feel which gets sweet near the end but is not cloying. Very nice IIPA from Pyramid of all people. Drinkable despite the high alc volume.

Seriously orange color with plenty of suds and a veil of lacing in the Gulpener tulip. Pleasant blast of hops of every description-- now I see this is supposed to read "H to the 7th power" referring to the number of hop varieties.

Quite tangy, even acidic, but the sweetness provides an interesting balance. Rather hot with alcohol. The hop mix works well, but overall it's very, very fruity. Cider, orange marmalade, lime peel, grapefruit, mango-- seems to be the complete fruit salad. Moderate bitterness, but again the sweetness floats over everything. The zingy tart edge is the saving grace.

Clean and well made, just a fruitier concoction than I believe I've encountered. It's actually quite easy to drink, even more so as it was quite a bargain. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at the Pyramid taproom by the ballparks.

Bottle from Safeway-Yakima. Starts off with a somewhat normal pour, murky amber and small airy head. Aroma also seem normal IPA, but fuller flavor flows, with gentle alcohol warmth. Hops kick in late, and linger long after the finish. Mild for an IIPA, but very accessible.
