3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at 16 Tons Cafe + Taphouse, Eugene. Pours a slightly cloudy orange, aroma is citrus, specfically grapefruit. Body is fresh, clean and sharp, finish slightly grassy, moderate bitterness, little warming, even at this ABV (which has gone down to 7.0 since the entry was created). A very nice IPA, quite drinkable, even if its complexity is a bit lacking.

Sample at the Tap House Grill in Seattle. Hazed amber pour with a medium off-white head that recedes slowly. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, tropical fruit and malt. Medium body with a moderately bitter hops character and notes of ripe fruit and bready malt. The finish is hoppy with a citrus aftertaste. Above average overall.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Orange in color with a light haze. Nice citrus zest and floral hop aromas, very intense. A good pine nose, some hints of grass, and very minimal malt; very dry. The flavor is bone dry, nicely bitter, and intensely hoppy. Great citrus zest, pine, some grapefruit, and tons of floral notes.

Pow! Pow pow! Hello Boneyard! Big nose of citrus and pine. Very balanced IPA at first taste, hopped back end that does not overwhelm. Lots of malt, but again, balanced. Great IPA.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Golden amber body with a tall, bubbly head. Pungent grapefruit bite upfront with rich floral character. Moderate caramel sweetness highlighting a silky smooth toasted bread malt backbone. Citrus dominates with light pine notes and fresh fruit hints. There is something special about the water in Bend that produces such great IPAs.
