An amazing and refreshing IPA brew. Sweet zesty head and bursting hops in the palate. Yet you don't taste the red ale till the latter. Cheers from SoCal USA 2/13/18

Very nice spice note. Mild hoppy finish. More malt than expected in an IPA

Slightly dry but very flavorful, tropical note is subtle and not the typical hoppy ness of typical IPAs

Really enjoying this beer. Much better than last year's Tumbler. More along the lines if the hoppy bitterness I expect from Sierra Nevada.

Pours a nice red/amber from the tap to a one finger head. Smell: pine, with some citrus in the background. Taste: piney, citrusy, grapefruit hops with a toasty, baked bread malt backbone. Dry, roasty finish not unlike a brown ale, Porter, or stout. The hops have a lingering bitterness which is accentuated by this dry malt finish. Overall: seemed a bit too piney and dry for my taste. If you're looking for a true northwest IPA this is a very good beer for you.
