3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub in Portland, OR. Pours a cloudy, orange-gold colored body with a finger-width, creamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is grassy and floral grapefruits with touches of pine resin and a grainy malt backing. Flavor is similar. Grapefruit citruses with a good amount of grass and florals up front. Grainy malt backing with a few pine resins before this finishes dry, somewhat spicy, and moderately bitter before leaving a lengthy aftertaste. Medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a pretty solid IPA. Well hopped and bitter with a nice grainy malt backing. Good one.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Breakside Brewing, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small beige head. Aroma of bitter resinous hops, pine, and creamy buttery malts. Flavour of bitter piney and resinous hops, and super-creamy buttery malts. Full-bodied, super piney and with such a creamy mouthfeel. Pleasantly surprised by this – excellent stuff.

UPDATED: AUG 12, 2012 Cloudy dark orange with a short head. Nose of sweet orange, resiny pine, and grass. Light sweet, medium bitter flavor. Lots of fruit. Medium body, resiny-oily texture, soft carbonation, and a big grapefruit bitter finish. Nice IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap @ Breakside... Poured amber with a thick, frothy, eggy head that had nice retention. The nose was solid. Big hop and citrus punch. Flavor profile was malty and husky. Bready, cracker malt, some hop bitterness, and a hint of chemical soap. Earthy, pepper spice, citrus, and more hop bitterness in the finish.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Powerful but not over vegetal. Good mixture of pine and citrus. Nice and sparkly too. One of the better IPAs of late for me. Another strong effort from Breakside.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
On tap at PDX Beer Week with Carla. Pours deep orange with off-white foam. Smells very floral and possibly a little skunky. Tastes initially very sweet of floral hops but ends very bitter of something akin to asparagus.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: APR 21, 2011 clear copper/amber body. crystal malt notes (soggy grains, caramel/toffee, bread crust) with limp, wet hop aromatics in the nose. low acid and relatively low bitterness for the style; this flabbiness along with the rounded, chewy and syrupy body leave me frustrated once again with oregon-made IPA. i’d like to point out that india pale ale includes the word ’pale’ ಠ_ಠ - that all said, i’m really excited to announce this rating as Oregon Beer Rating #666. yeehaw.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: JUL 18, 2013 Over two years later and this time from a bottle (not available back then.) Full hop aroma assault , resin with a little citrus tinge, peppery, the malt ballast hardly there. modest off white head on clear orange amber. Just a bit of resin weight int he mouth, fragrant.. the sweetness just alittle closer to noticeable in the flavor--resin, wood & grapefruit
