4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

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.

On tap at Horse Brass Pub, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma of strong citrus hops and tropical fruits (pineapple). Flavour of pineapple and mango, and citrus hops, unbalanced to the hops with not much malt, but delicious in its lack of balance. Excellent.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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!
