authenticmead (65) - West Coast, Oregon, USA - JAN 5, 2012
22.oz bottle from mainbrew.com Poors a beautiful hazy amber with long lasting foamy head. Great citrus and pine aroma Palate is pine citrus and slight caramel and toast malts. A very drinkable and solid NW IPA. This brewery continues to improve!

Salmoniform (983) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - JUL 18, 2014
Poured from tap to glass. Hazy orange hue with creamy white head that held a ring. Aroma is tangerine, pepper, straw, melon. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and soft carbonation. Taste is slight malt sweetness initially followed by nice bitterness through the finish and lingers on the palate. Overall this is a decent brew.

Mora2000 (5853) - McKinney, Texas, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Yellow pour with a white head. The aroma has some strong perfume and floral notes from the hops as well as some bready notes. The flavor is resinous pine with some flowers, biscuit malt and low bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

DrinkEmUpJones (1069) - Georgia, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Clear gold with sticky white lacing. Skunky, basement aromas on the nose. Medium bodied palate has a mild bitterness and yeasty, dirty, cereal flavors that lead to a bitter finish. Not my style of ipa.

chicowv (463) - Canaan Valley, West Virginia, USA - FEB 23, 2013
Sample tasting at the brewery: Pours a clear yellow with a light head. Aroma is sour, piney and hoppy. Taste is piney, citrus but good malt balance. Bitter but smooth going down and rather complex. Great IPA.

bu11zeye (11971) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - JUL 27, 2012
(22oz bottle) Pours a clear golden body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of caramel, orange,pineapple, and herbs. Flavor of herbs, grass, citrus, caramel, pine, and earth with a dry, bitter finish.

5000 (6298) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 19, 2012
Bottle:   Hazy amber, on the orange side, large rocky off-white head, nice lacing.   A bit of a strong powdery sugary hop fest up front, on the tongue.   Nose is the same, a fake powdery sugary sort of hop nose.   Certainly hoppy without being too biting, but the sweetness is very artificial.   Reminds me of the pixie stix sort of powdery aroma, but add some hops.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Tiz okay, but the malt sweetness just doesn’t work for me.

Shink (177) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 16, 2012
Pours a crisp copper with a lingering foamy head. Strong hop smell with a moderately hoppy taste. Not too heavy for an IPA. Great all-around beer.

bhensonb (11489) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Bomber from "Made in Oregon". Pours hazy copper with a creamy white head. Undernote of roasted caramel, but the main play is a crazy conglomeration of hop aroma. Light pitted fruit, citrus and resin - at least. Med body or better. Flavor is a bit caramel, but there’s still a lot of pitted fruit, citrus, resin and I’m thinking floral. It’s very hoppy, tho not harshly bitter, and it’s just on the dry and bitter side. Needs imperialization.

presario (4705) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - APR 8, 2012
Bottle. Dark amber with a big head. Light fishy hop aroma. Big weird fruit hop flavour. Kiwi and grapefruit?

Gooney (389) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 10, 2012
22 oz bottle from Mainbrew - Clear orange with a pillowy white head. Pleasant aroma with minor hop tinges. Smooth drinking. Nice bitterness on the middle of the tongue. Very nice beer.
