savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 26, 2011
On tap @ Bend Brewing Co. Hazy orange with a white head. Aroma of orange zest, flowers and pine resin. Flavor is lots of bitter hops and a light caramel malt sweetness. Medium to light in body with a dry, bitter finish. This is an above average IPA with lots of great hop character and a clean finish. Great beer.

Alphadelic (1922) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 12, 2011
Had this at the Horse Brass blind IPA tasting, Portland, OR - Orange. A very soft, leafy aroma with a little lime and kiwi amongst a hint of malt. Very malty like an English IPA or golden ale. Dry in a summery hay or straw way. Middling.

SamGamgee (2451) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - AUG 10, 2010
Draught at the brewery. Very hazy gold color. Fruity and soft aroma with grapefruit and melon. Lots of melon and citrus flavors with lightly sweet toasty malt. Fruity overall with definite grapefruit. Strong bitterness in the finish. Soft and creamy mouthfeel. Bitter, sweet and fruity overall. I guess not really my kind of IPA.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 2, 2010
Bottle:   Pale caramel, hazy, orangish hued, large foamy white head, decent lacing.   Fairly strong hop nose, slight citrus peel (unsweetened).   Soft hop bitterness, slight citrus zest.   Smooth but not very heavy.   Seems more like a Pale Ale.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Light IPA, clean, just not as big as I would have liked.   Pour a little Hop Head in this to give it more umph.

Sample at the Brew Pub in Bend. This was my favorite among all those sampled. Pours orange with typical white head. Traditional fruity, cascade style hops, and a decent bitter finish. True to the style. An easy drinker for IPA fans.
