3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Flight pour on tap at the brewpub (Corvallis, OR). Pours a nice deeper amber hue, a firmer haziness here with dulledamber glow out to the edges. Darker and dulled colors, a frothy offwhite head atop dies to a smaller ring, laces similarly. Aromas are a bit of pithy g rapefruit, earth and florals. Jabbed with bitter earth, more subtle tropical notes with a bit of sweeter malt, bread and subtle caramel. Still a hop presence that stands up. Initial is bitter florals and tropical jabs, a bit of gumball, touches of caramel and bitter citrus. More florals, pithy, a bit tropical. A touch sweeter than the Pale with a bit of richer floral bitterness, earth, rind and bitterness. A touch sweeter, that fuzzy bitterness, jabs of caramel, subtle pineapple and bitter earth presses on. A bit more flabby, the carbonation a bit lower and the flow and bitterness not as enjoyable for me. Though the hop flavors to mix well, this one ends up a touch sweeter for me in t he end. Still nice, an intriguing hop profile and something I would drink again. I just found the Pale the superior option.

Poured from tap to glass. Orange hue with fizzy white head that diminished to a ring. Aroma is grapefruit, pine, caramel, orange. Mouthfeel is great with a medium body and zesty carbonation.

Growler. Thanks, C! Looks like this might be my 500th IPA rating (again). Sweet! Pours a clear medium gold with a dense and sudsy white head. Big grassy nose, very herbal, super pleasant and much softer than so many PNW IPAs. A little butter lurking in the background, alas, but it comes across as a killer recipe. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Soft caramel and beautiful sweet fresh grass on the mid palate--not pilsner-y, but nicely leaning toward that direction while still an IPA. Crisp light finish.
