Nice balance, malty, chewy, and oh so hoppy. Fruity overtones and just a nice mouthfeel. Nice beer

p1meatloaf (256) - Corvallis, Oregon, USA - SEP 16, 2011
in taster at BJs in huntington. Looks pale amber. Smells like citrus and dry hopped with citrus. Tastes like citrus on the front and end with a light bite over the palate. Also some fruity and sweet mixtures in there. Pretty good ipa. Overall 7.5 of 10. Needs more bitterness but still smelly and tasty flowers.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 12, 2007
Not sure if this is the "Backdraft" that I tasted at Green Dragon in PDX. Very nice, floral Simcoe hops nose and smooth, floral, piquant bitter flavor. Not too bitter, just right. Poured a bright copper-amber-golden with a healthy fluffy white head that died down a bit after a few moments. The brewer here is quite good.

glennmastrange (2685) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - NOV 11, 2007
Tap. Aromas of roasted and bread for the malt, moderate fresh green hops, pine and citrus, and light dough for the yeast, with toffee in the background. head is creamy, white, mostly lasting, with excellent lacing. Flavor starts moderately acidic and finishes moderately acidic and bitter. Palate is light/medium, watery and has a soft to lively carbonation. Okay beer, aroma was good but the taste was a bit flat.

Tasted at BJís. Clear oranfe amber with fizzy white head. Soapy hoppy aroma. Tangy taste with a perfume hoppy finish. Slightly out of balance. Crisp hoppy finish.
