This West Coast IPA is like that sweet little Nordic trail off the main trail of Meissner - it takes the high road. Using Pilsner base malt, it is light on malt but not hops. With a hop bill consisting of Amarillo, Centennial, Northern Brewer, and experimental hop X, we packed in the pine along with the citrus notes we love.

vyvvy (4394) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - FEB 7, 2015
On tap at the Portland brewpub - Pours clear gold with a white head. The aroma has pine, grapefruit and caramel with a great balance between everything. It is medium bodied with mild carbonation. The flavor starts very piney / woody with some grapefruit zest and decent amount of mildly toasted malt that offsets the hoppiness. The finish is resiny and bitter. Quite good.

On tap at Beer Junction. Light golden pour, sharply bitter. This one is appropriately named. More pine resin than fruit or floral notes, with a good medium body. I like it.

uhclem (380) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - DEC 22, 2014
On tap at Old Chicago. Theres very little to be done to improve this IPA. I did something I normally dont do - I had a second one. A perfect combination of aroma and taste, with a lingering finish. Too bad its a seasonal.

Nice pine and citrus aroma. Soft caramel color. Relatively light palate with high carbination. Flavor was bitter with a sweetness to follow. Good IPA to fall in line with the others for this brewery.
