On tap at Hawthorne Hophouse - Pours clear yellow with a white head. The beer has caramel malt, dry crackers, tropical fruits, grapefruit and pine. The finish is quite dry and bitter. Nice IPA.

Not a bad beer. Just not much flavor. Mild. No malt flavor (a good thing).

Yes folks I AM rating this beer a 4.8. NEARLY PERFECT. I am going to be bold and say that this beer very well could be this generation’s version of PLINY the ELder. It is THAT big and different. I bought this bottle on a whim, thinking that most other IPAs that feature galaxy hops tend to showcase the hop in a subtle way while blending in other American C-hops. This particular beer though brings forth the Galaxy in a very unapologetic way. Pouring a light copper, slight haze, with an average amount of head, one would never expect the BLAST of galaxy hops form the first sniff. There’s a deep dank-ness about the aroma, the tropical passion-fruit aromas hit you right in the nose-hairs! It is absolutely unapologetically tropical fruit. On a plus note, they did not f this one up by complicating the malt bill. The malt is simple, straightforward, a touch of caramel sweetness and a little bit of biscuit, but not much more. The bittering is incredibly smooth, no harsh cohumolone induced pucker faces or cat pee aromas. It is so smooth that it really just rolls off the tongue and implies a slight alkali-sensation. I wish more people could try this double IPA. This IPA should push brewing to the limits and do what Dogfish head 90 and Pliny the Elder did for the last 10 years. I have a new favorite beer, and it’s an outcast.

A nice fresh aroma of pine and soft citrus. Smooth light body with ample bitterness, especially in the finish. Wouldn’t mid trying this again......................"

Bend’s best Double IPA. Hands down. Tasty, and pair this with food from their pub (Crux Grilled Cheese) and you’ll be in hoppy heaven.
