Sarlacc83 (1540) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 11, 2015
(Green Flash) Bottle. Rating #1500! A: Cloudy orange with a ton of bubbles scraping against the side of the glass. Nearly white head and lacing. N: Blast of pine, pineapple, and grapefruit. Deep draughts of earth and a bit of mango to follow things up. Cracker as the base. T: Very bitter with only the slightest bit of malt underneath. M: Medium-light body, bone dry, prickly carbonation, a touch of alcohol. O: Itís a session IPA, itís an APA, itís a bird, itís a plane. Whatever it is, itís pretty well done, but I find that itís a bit too earthy for my palate, as well.

Solid IPA. Lots of citrus making for a bright beer. Just enough backbone and bitterness. Good stuff.

Citrus aroma, onion, garlic and little dankness. Mainly citrus though. Has a nice pop of bitterness and lots of grapefruit, tropical fruit juice and garlic. Lots of garlic itís interesting. Overall a pretty good session ipa. Not going to rush out to get it again but definitely worth trying.

X (160) - California, USA - OCT 9, 2015
Bottle. Golden-brass with a big sudsy white head. The aroma is fresh citrus and some pine. The taste, like the nose, features grapefruit and resins set in a light caramel malt base. The bitterness seems a bit over the top at times, but Iíll forgive this. Finishes long and dry. Top shelf stuff bro. Paired excellent with a steak and potato burrito.

This is far and away the most surprising, balanced, and awe invoking session IPA I have ever drank. The nose is strong with hops and resin, and upon first taste that is exactly what you get. Hops, resin, and a bitter finish but harmony is found between the hops flavor, which is nicely balanced by the malt. As the beer oxidized it rounded the edges of the hops and resin and brought forth the notes of citrus and pine. Amazing mouth feel and excellent carbanation made this session preform among more traditional west coast IPAs.

Fatehunter (1819) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - OCT 3, 2015
Pours a finger and a half of head on a hazy straw body. The aroma is bright lemon, grapefruit and pineapple. The taste is dry and metallic bitterness with a solid bitter finish. The texture is crisp and fizzy. Itís really good.
