As of late I can not find the time to take tasting notes of each beer I sample. I would like to track and record my thoughts of each so I will just use the simple scoring rubric until more time is available.

This one is perfect. Heres why. Every time I try a new IPA I say "oh yeah this is it this is the one" well after a while every one is "the one" however, after trying fresh squeezed Iím more confident in saying that. This beer is just awesome. Itís super hoppy, super balance which is key. For me Iím not crazy about the malt. I understand and appreciate why itís there but for me Itís the hops. The aroma on this is literally fresh tropical juice. Some took a juicer and took massive amounts of pineapple, grapefruit, mango, papaya and just dumped it in this beer. Itís incredible. Probably the most tropical smelling beer Iíve had. The taste is just perfection. So much tropical fruit..mango, PINEAPPLE...so much Pineapple I canít even describe it. So fresh. Again itís like someone took all these tropical fruits and squeezed the juice and just poured it into this beer. I canít really think of any IPA that has made me this excited in a while. This one is just killer. Snag some and really appreciate the work that went into this one. It is one of a kind. Cheers!

Fresh squeezed pours a mid-coppery color with a very light brown half finger head. Not much lacing.
Slightly piney/citrus aroma.
Medium mouthfeel with slight bitter--not overly hoppy. 60 IBUs I think.
Honestly, a great brew. Recommend.

The label caught my eye, and the beer surprised. However, the finish is a little off and not as hoppy as I like in an IPA.

Las Vegas, NV - Smithís Food & Drugs - 12 oz bottle. Medium copper pour, slight haze, nice soft white head. Aroma has a nice dollop of spruce goodness. Flavor is succulent with some juicy fruit gum notes, some solid citrus bitterness, a touch of mango fruitiness. Nice thick rich mouthfeel. Another solid entry from one of my favorite Oregon brewers.

Part of me wished this stayed in a bomber once a year. Now that I can get it everyday I donít appreciate it as much! Poured, out of tap, right from the bottle, you donít miss much any way you drink this. Closer to room temp the better the aroma. Golden goodness, citra at itís finest!

Creamy head. Initial taste is very fruity; peaches, oranges, plums. Lots of flavor. Bitter finish with medium hops. Slight malty aftertaste. Overall very flavorful and refreshing.
