Suttree (5224) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 28, 2013
On tap, Horsebrass, Portland. Orange, thin but dense white hea. Nice aroma of pine and caramel, and maybe a hint of smokiness. Heavy palate, pine and resin dominate at first, then some slick malts, the more chewy, woody hops in the finish.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 23, 2013
Draught @ Brouwer’s Café:   Golden, faint haze, light carbonation, moderate frothy white head, nice lacing.   Soft citrus peel and pith nose.   A little dank too.   Smooth citrusy bitterness on the tongue, slightly mealy.   A moderate IPA, one that isn’t too bitter, nor too aromatic.   The mealiness on the tongue really detracts for me.   Nice citrusy and floral notes, but that mealy/cereal aspect I don’t like.   Would be an 8 otherwise.   Body and mouthfeel are somewhat viscous.   Strong pith and citrus peel on the nose, lacking sweetness, low bitterness.   Soft lingering cereal like mealiness.   Lots about this are good, but the cereal/mealiness just makes it only average.   Wished it were more floral to combat that mealy maltiness.   Good IPA, that could be great if it were cleaned up a tad bit more.   Needs to be brighter, with more floral sweetness.   Then we’d have something!

BEENJAMIN (290) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 22, 2013
On tap - Sweet pine, grapefruit, pineapple, and a bit of dank skunkiness for aroma. Pour a couldy yet glowing golden hue with a slightly off white head. The hop flavors explode on your plate and the balance is unbeatable. Truly one of Oregon’s best IPA’s.

Salmoniform (950) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Tap to glass. A very nice amber hue with white head. Aroma is honey, sugar, and hop explosion of citrus & melon. Sweetness initially on the palate but is rounded out quite well with hop bitterness. A slight CO2 "bite" throughout. Carbonation is medium and really provides a great medium to introduce the hop essence. Overall, this is a top notch IPA!

GT2 (8685) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Tap at Hop N Bean in Sisters, OR. Found on tap all over PNW on my beer trip. Clear lighter orange with excellent, webby lacing. Nose is dank, juicy, clean grapefruit and orange style hops. Taste is sweaty, salty, juicy thick melon/mango, candied lemon, mild sugar balance. Great, soft palate. Clearly impressive. Don’t pass on this if it’s on tap.

Love me some Boneyard. On tap at Belmont Station. Pours a clear copper color with a medium white head. A sweet nose of PIls malt and big resin fruity hops. The flavor is crisp clean malts, big sweet bitter hops, resin and deep fruit. Oranges. Very smooth, tasty. Nice IPA.

haddon90 (1477) - Denver, Colorado, USA - SEP 13, 2013
Draft. Pours a clear, deep wooden color with a nice laced head. Thick, tart aroma with some floral notes and an excellent sense of hops. Wet, hoppy flavor with a little floral and tart in the background. Really good balance and a well done IPA.

joeneugs (3416) - Livermore, California, USA - SEP 12, 2013
On tap at the Livermore Saloon. It pours yellow with a white head. The aroma is potent with citrus, juicy fruit gum and wheat. The flavor is creamy on the palate yet light bodied and crisp with tropical fruit, mango, grapefruit and papaya. Mildly bitter finish. Super tasty stuff!

maekchu (2247) - Hirakata, JAPAN - SEP 10, 2013
Draught at Concordia Ale House in Portland, OR. Good pine/citrus mix in nose. Deep copper color. Juicy, tingly, and just slightly metallic / orangeade with solid caramel backing / mild hoppy finish. Very nice. The hops squeeze through. Glad to have a chance to try this. Went to the brewery in Bend a few weeks ago to sample -- but they are open only until 6pm.

Clear Amber pour with no head. Citrusy hop nose. watery smooth body Inoffensive but nothing stood out to me Based on other ratings i should probably try it again.
