a good complex hop profile stands this one out from most of their beers, which are more boring than not. Adequately bitter and flavorful. Not too shabby...

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crisp hazy orange coloured body with a bright bronze glow and a nice three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of piney and especially grassy hop scents with some noticeable malt and alcohol, but the hops are central here. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and herbal hop flavours dominate with a great balance of malt, some light alcohol and a hint of dry notes - but the grass and herbal flavours really come out, in a good way. Aftertaste shows mostly hop bitterness, but the beer is perfectly balanced and the malt flavour is also noticeable. Overall, a great IPA with more of a focus on grassy and herbal flavours - great to sample! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Belmont Station in Portland, Oregon on 12-April-2013 for US$5.19 sampled at home in Washington on 23-June-2013.
