COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
If you’ve visited Bend’s pub-centric Westside or rode the nearby trails, you’ve seen the Phoenix Rising. In the same creative and inventive spirit, we offer IRA. Inspired by the IPA category, this ale is high in hops and caramel flavors from Munich and crystal malts. Cheers to artists like Frank Boyden who’ve made Bend a bit more colorful. Grains: 2-Row, Munich, Crystal Hops: Warrior, Willamette, Cascade & German Tettnager Available: Jun 1 – Sept 1 Available seasonally in 12 oz bottles, draft

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 10, 2013
hazy red/orange. an awkward nose of dusty hop and slightly metallic malt. in the mouth it is smooth, balanced, peppery, caramelly and with a nice hop bite in the finish. this could be a pretty good session beer I reckon. Need a pint of it though.

luttonm (2069) - Belgrade, SERBIA - DEC 17, 2013
22oz bottle in Seattle. Deep orange, creamy body. Sweet orange candy malt aroma, carries through to the main flavor which is hard orange candy, something artificial about it. Juicy hops and caramel medium malts add up to a strange beer with big juicy alcohol. Tasty enough, but doesn’t quite add up.

Bottle in Hood River. Nice simple red ale that was a real easy drinker. Would have this again.

Syzzer (571) - Oregon, USA - AUG 26, 2013
7-28-13 poured from bomber with my buddy Josh. Good malts. Dark orange color. Some hops. Slight sense of overripe orange. White head reduces down. 8.4 BD; 8.9 Josh; 9.19 Joek

hawanna (1892) - GERMANY - AUG 21, 2013
Bottle. Medium body. Medium carbonation. Hoppy and with some caramel notes. Good IPA but a little bit watery.

5000 (6027) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Dirty caramel, moderate frothy sandy head, nice lacing.   Pale hoppy nose, slightly floral with tea leaves.   Fairly bright on the nose.   Pale hoppiness on the tongue, mild sweetness, a little sweet citrus peel and tea leaves.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   A little musty hop finish, tea leaves, pale citrus peel, a little pith.   Not as biting as one would think for an IPA.   Its like a cross between a Pale Ale and an IPA.   Thankfully not overly bitter or harsh.   Not bad, sessionable, but not as bright on the tongue as I would have liked for an IPA.

Overall just average, but it is tasty, and you can run through quite a few of them pretty quick.

BillKismet (3295) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 15, 2013
Crystal clear brassy amber with nice froth top. Appreciably piny nose with a chocolate caramel underpinning and some toffee notes. Body is rather candyish, with the hops a bit more muted. Toffee and some diacetyl, a bit of dank sock, but overall not bad. Hops are dialed back more than I would desire.

Theydon_Bois (6998) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2013
Nitro tap at Cascade Lakes Lodge, Bend, 23/05/13. Clear amber with a decent looking off white head. Nose is pale malts, grass, bitter orange. Taste comprises orange pith, hops, grapefruit. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, nitro smoothness on the palate. Ok stuff.

improvjock (317) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 4, 2013
Pours a gorgeous reddish amber with slight off-white head. Hints of grassy and piny hops in the aroma, but not really much there. The taste is a bit on the sweet side, mostly malty with a hint of citrus. A bit of bitterness in the finish, but not as much as I was expecting. Good, but not great.

DrinkEmUpJones (1062) - Georgia, USA - MAY 21, 2013
Cloudy red orange. Medium aromas of bread and caramel malt. Malty but balanced palate has flavors of gingerbread, caramel and yeast.
