hoptimist (99) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 6, 2010
Solid hop presence here with resin, citrus and pineapple notes held in check with some caramel malt sweetness. Copper orange color with a touch of haze. Frothy and long lasting light tan head. Medium+ bitterness underscored by pine and citrus, accentuated with pineapple. Medium malt sweetness. Medium body and lively carb. Bitter attack, bitter middle, bitter finish. Actually the malt sweetness makes an appearance or two as it comingles with the hop madness. Long semi-dry finish. Cricky texture. Rev it up!

Tap (TCBW15) (6:3:7+:4+:14+=3.4+++)
Stinky hoppy aroma, a little pungent. Lightish palte. Nice balance of light malts and bitter hops. Hops so fresh - beautiful. Gets better with every sip. Balance is perfect. No sign of 7.5%. A stonking IPA, shame about the aroma not quite being there.
