Apricot colored beer. Really a nice mix of oranges and resin. Not overly bitter, but fresh and vibrant.

On tap @ the brewpub. Parksy ordered this, but I think I drank more than my share, lol! Hazy medium golden, soft white head. Nice pine and citrus profile, sweet malts, medium body, nice bitterness. Solid PNW IPA.

Not as flavorful as the pale ale, but still loaded with nice english hop character. A nice break from the monotony of the hop race.

Growler from the brewery. Pours a golden amber color with a thin white head. Aroma is hoppy, pine. Medium on the palate with soft carbonation. Flavor is bitter, hoppy, pine, some malty sweetness, with a bitter hop finish. A solid IPA.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at the brewpub. Gold with a lasting white head. Piney, citrus, and lightly tropical hoppy aroma with high intensity. Some richer bready malt in the flavor with a medium light sweetness. Bitterness is medium-high and hop flavor is floral and fruity. It’s ample but not distinct. Medium-light body. A solid drinkable IPA that leans a little more on the sessionable side than huge hop-bomb side.

Sample tray. Airy body and hoppy flavour. Worth a pint or two or a bottle and a definate revisit.

tap at brewery. pours a clear light copper. big pine and grassy grapefruit notes. herbal. hop forward. cereal, bready malt backing. decent stuff. brewery likes the herbal, grassy hops. seems to be a common denominator in most of their non sours.

On tap at Bailey’s Taproom in Portland. Light pour, with floral hops countering mild caramel malts. It’s a nice standard, but not amazing in any way.
