3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sample at the brewpub. This brew is a hazy ruddy orange color with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Citrusy hops aroma with notes of honey and pine. Medium body with a moderately hoppy character with piney and citrusy notes, along with sweet malt and honey in the background. The finish is hoppy with a tart citrus aftertaste. Pretty good all around, almost like Hopslam’s younger brother.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Portland trip. Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a hazy caramel color with a medium sized yellow-white head. The aroma was strong sweet pineapple and grapefruit. The flavor was strong and crisp bitter grapefruit that had great oomph and a solid undertone of brown sugary. Long bitter hoppy finish. Fairly full bodied. Excellent.

On tap at Hood River Hopfest ’09. Colour... cloudy orange with a thick head. Nose... very hoppy and rather astringent. Palate... Whoa! Bitter! Bitchy! Tangy! And a lengthy pine-like finish, to boot!

Growler from the brewery. At 13 bucks, not a bad deal! Poured a deep amber with a big old fluffy white head that leaves nice lacing on the glassware. Aroma is citrus and pine hops with a notable marijuana note as well. Flavor was citrus, pine, caramel malt and weed. Solid beer, I probably didn’t need to drink that much of it in one go, but what can you do?

Tap @ OBF... Poured amber/burnt orange with a thick, white head. Nice hoppy aroma. Big hops up front with a little bit of grains and much noticeable alcohol. Had a malty finish.

What a breathtakingly bitter and complex IPA. Mostly citrus hop profile, and with a large body to sum up.

Without doubt, the brewery’s best!!! This one poured a fiery orange, with flickering yellow and rose making their way into the glass. Fruit-filled flavor (tangerine, grapefruit, orange) with ponderosa pine bark present as well. Bright, tangy, and well balanced. Wish they bottled this!!!

Tap at brewpub.
Wow, this was one fine IPA! Pours an average cheddar orange with an aroma of biting grapefruit and bitter hops. Flavor is sour, mouth-puckering floral hops with a bitter grapefruit finish. Slight hints of pine slip between the cracks as well. Thick and pleasant mouthfeel. Nice surprise; wasn’t really expecting it to be this tasty. Glad to see it’s highly rated by others as well.

Pours a hazy garnet coloring, bold like a new copper penny. Has some great fruit undertones, and lots of citrus peel in the nose. Comes across very hoppy on the palate, with lots of resin and grapefruit, nice use of simcoe, and some biscuity caramel maltiness. A really well done NW style IIPA.
