Itís fitting this experimental pale ale was the first beer brewed at our Portland Pub. This XPA gets its bitter twist from Nugget, and Northern Brewer hops, then delivers a pronounced citrus kick from Cascade, Centennial and Citra hops. Consider this your next hop obsession.

Reid (2237) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 16, 2014
22 oz bomber bought from "lifesource" in Salem OR. $3.69 Pours a clear orange hued ale with a good sized frothy cream coloured head. Nice enough hoppy aromas here. Floral and some citrius..goodish caramel malt backing. Taste si sweeter than first imagined..like sweet clementines. Nice bitter hop in the back of the mouth balances it somewhat but not all the way. Mouth feel is medium but i think the sweetness is a tad overdone and becomes a little cloying but not enought to make this a bad experience. OK APA..would drink again if offered

JStax (4595) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - MAY 26, 2016
Bottle poured into a wine glass. The beer is a clear amber with a white head of foam. Good retention. The arom has pine and resinous notes on top of bready biscuits. If a pine forward biscuit were a thing, thats what this beer would mimic. Fairly bitter throughout. Medium body and moderate carbonation.

tmongoose (2075) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 22, 2016
draft to sampler. poured the normal orange color with white head. this is a pretty typical apa nothing really stands out other than it is drinkable and has a nice citrus kick to it. basic medium malt which is typical of Deschutes and a nice bitterness from the hops. long lasting citrus flavor on the tongue. overall its drinkable but yet pretty average.

degbert (1594) - Austin, Texas, USA - MAY 21, 2016
Bottle. Pours a dark amber-gold with a high, off-white, lacy, mixed-grained, mashed-potato head. Nose is lime, barnyard, mushroom, earth, cedar, and papaya; odd that it says Citra, as Iím not getting that at all. Sweet and fruity up front, with a slight bitterness; then moves into more pronounced bitterness in the midpalate, with an orange-toffee malt to balance it out.. The bitterness is grapefruit pith and wood ash; itís nicely balanced, and the drying qualities stay consistent without punching you in the face. Finish is long, dry, and a little clove-spicy. I like this. Itís big enough without being too big.

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.
