On tap at Alameda in Portland--Poured a rich orange-copper body with a attractive wispy white head. Nose of bold fruity hops. More floral than bitter. Finished sharp and full-flavored. Perhaps the best beer from this brewery. A+!

Reid (1946) - Salem, Oregon, USA - FEB 15, 2010
22 oz bomber..no mention or ’orgainic" on the label. In appearance this is already an odd IPA, darker amber with a small bubbly,frothy tan head. Strong citrus like hop aromas, but also stong breadyness from the malts. very balanced flavours the citric hopping and very strong semi-sweet malts shining though.. God enough o the palate..nice lingering finish. Overall a strange one. Almost an American Strong Ale rather than an IPA in my opinion.

raphael (916) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 12, 2008
On tap at mickey finn’s. drk amber with thin head, aroma a little placid but pine, caramel, oak. good carbonation with just a shade of weight in the mouth. some edgy bitterness, some clash of citrus and resin & maybe the malt itself, having some presence. better than I expected

BlackDonald (1126) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 5, 2008
This was actually suprisingly good. Most of their stuff ranges from good to mediocre, but this I really enjoyed. The nose has big fruity hop aromas, lots of citrus and an actual malt presence. Suprisingly bitter in the finish. Tasty and refreshing.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours a hazy orange color with a small off-white head. Has a malty hoppy pine needles aroma with hints of grapefruit. Sweetish malty hoppy piny and grapefruit flavor. Has a sweetish malty hoppy bitter finish.
