Poured from a bomber. Thick, foamy head. Smells a bit dank, taste is on the yeasty side but the hops come through. Unique IPA i'd try again.

22oz bottle from "Trader Joe" in Salem OR.
This IPA is a deeper amber colour..unusual for style and a small yet lasting thick and creamy white head.
very strong and fresh hop aromas...resin and pine take the fore..some malts in the backing.
Taste is mainly resiny hops mixed with caramel hops with a finishing stroke of grapefruit hop..tastes very fresh but i doubt that it is!
Good refreshing well carbonated mouthfeel.
Very nice drinkable IPA

22 oz bomber from whole foods portland transported back to pa. i agree with the description on the bottle: smooth bold and full of flavor. no sell by date, but extremely fresh tasting with floral grassy citrus - these northwestern IPAs just continually have IPAs from the east coast on the mat. great job. wish i had a case of these....i cannot understand why this beer is not rated higher. this is en excellent brew.

On draught at breakside - pours out clear golden. Definite nose of hop. Taste also of hop - to me tastes like a double ipa. Perfect pairing with spicy food.

Bottle - Mango and grapefruit, very fruity. Clear gold nice head. Fruit translates well into taste but very thin and bitterness sems unbalanced.
