Parallel with 90 Minutes and Sixty-One
Hazy golden color with small head. The aroma is lightly malty; the mouthfeel is smooth, it has some pale malt flavor, correct bitterness, but not much hop quality.
Beautiful golden color and big creamy head. Very nice hop aroma, crispy, a bit nutty, and fruity (mature apricots and raisins). Some good malt flavor, unable to balance the huge amount of hops, with a lot of caramel character. Enjoyable.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Clear, golden pour, lightly sparkling, with a nice, lasting, white head. The aroma is very piney and citrusy, and there’s a little caramel-note too. The flavor has citrus, pine, bitterness and some caramel-like notes. Full-bodied beer with a little stingingness in the mouth. Long hoppy finish. A lovely pale ale that I think goes better with food than it does as a refresher. (070601)

355cl bottle from Belmont Station, Portland. Clear gold/copper with lasting beige head. Nice hop aroma, not over the top. Nice sweet malt to balance. Good hoppy finish. Bit of yeast/fart on aroma. Very drinkable. Love the balanced interesting hop finish.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle, 6%. Vegetable aroma, reminds me of Nelson Sauvin hop. Clear grey amber colour. Small white head. The flavour is caramelly from the hops, still has a little wet hop, vegetable, NS. Nice and clean, though. Seems to have a little watery finish.

Average IPA, fairly decent hops without being too overpowering. Not very complex, but still drinkable.

Golden color, small white head. Hoppy, flowery, a bit smokey nose. Sweetish, hoppy flowery, balanced IPA. Long flowery hoppy aftertaste, not too hoppy, so quite enjoyable as such.

The brewer told me that the first time they made this beer the football game didn’t work and he had to do it by hand. Ouch! Hazy amber, floral, lightly piney hop nose. Rich hops, lots of bitterness. In a way, this is less balanced than the 90Min, but in a way, that makes it better. A great beer in the hop-o-rific West Coast style.
