4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
translucent amber-tan, small white head. Dry clean nose, huge fresh orange with resinous pine, no sugar. Resinous orange front palate, delicate and dry across mid, faintly soapy through the bitter finish. Oily palate, thin but quenching. Reminds of Maine peeper, bit thinner and less expressive, but my pint was gone in 10 minutes.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A tasy IPA, pinapple, grassy and bitter hops, malty brown sugar, citrus- lime and lemon, papaya. A tropical, but one dimensionally bitter ipa. It despite the color, looks like a clear, beautiful IPA, I want to drink. A little just plain bitter with not enough flavor profile, but overall an upper-tier go to Oregon IPA. I think that other breweries have caught up with the genius of RPM and that that RPM might have to evolve to keep their best Oregon IPA title.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap. Pours a slightly hazy orangish body with a one finger frothy off-white head that faded to a thin film, lots of lace. The nose is nicely citrusy and juicy with a little resiny hops as well. Some minimal caramel maltiness. The flavor is a little duller than I was expecting, the hops are just not popping out at me. A little caramel sweetness on the finish. Rather light bitterness given how nice and hoppy the nose was. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Shorter finish than I was looking for. Kind of let down with this one.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Uber. Pours pale orangish golden with thin creamy white head. Aroma is a hint of malt and big grapefruit and pine hop notes. Taste is crisp light caramel malt with lots of fresh earthy hops on the finish. Nice citrus and pine from the hops - good flavor without being overwhelming. Very drinkable for a hoppy IPA.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Light, hazy golden, bright white head. Aroma is honey, citrus, grass. Flavor begins with pine/resin bitterness, which leads to softer, pineapple and faint mango, ending in dry, grainy sweetness and a light bitterness that tapers off. Everything I look for in an ipa, tons of hop flavor, ample bitterness without being overdone, medium-light malt backbone that supports without contributing too much sweetness. Dry without being overly so. Definitely a benchmark west coast ipa.

Amber with a firm head. Some fruits in the aroma, long bitter finish. Excellent showcase of a west coast ipa

Draft pour at taphouse. Amber pour with average white head. Very hoppy. A little sweet for me, but its mostly what I look for in an IPA. Good stuff.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draught at APEX in Portland, OR on 22 May 2013. Poured a hazy orange with a scummy white head. Hoppy aroma with grass and citrus at the fore with some caramel sweetness. Fresh hop flavours; nice grapefruit and Seville orange mixed with biscuity malt. Palate was very bitter resin, marmalade and dry grain.

Drinks like a double ipa. I don’t knw the ibu or alc content, but this is a big beer. Big carb bite and citrusy hop punch with full body. Can’t go wrong, excellent brew!
