3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On Tap at the Bend Brewery mostly clear deep yellow with a fine white head and soapy lacing. Light sharp malt and hopppy bitter aroma. Dry and quite bitter but the hop flavors are thin and just biting. Kind of one dimencional. Well attenuated and clean finish

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From bottle. Pours amber yellow with a big white head and lots of sticky lacing. Aroma and taste of tropical fruits with a nice medium maltiness and sweetness. Make no mistake, though, this is an IPA with a nice solid punch of hops and medium bitterness. Medium to full mouthfeel. Bitter finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle in a tulip. Pours golden/amber with a white head. Aroma of light galaxy hops with hints of bitterness, some pale and caramel malts, and some dough. Flavor the same with a decent blend but the bottle is probably old. Average texture. Not a bad beer, would like to try fresh.

Those "down under" hops actually do it for me. One of the first IPA’s I have enjoyed in a while.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Tin Bucket
A: Gold color, white head, lacing.
N: Pineapple, grapefruit, mango, pine, earth, and a bit of hemp.
T: Good bitterness, underpinning sweetness.
M: Creamy carbonation, resinous medium body, no alcohol presence.
O: Good IPA. Nose vastly outshines the taste, and this is less dry than I would expect for a west coast IPA, but it’s better than I expected as well.
