3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JUL 4, 2013 Tap @ The BeerMongers... Poured pale, mildly hazy with a thick forming eggy white head. Nose had earthy vegetal hops. Some bitterness but the hop spicing was overly earthy with onion-like vegetal tones along with a strong citrus note too. Not much malt to balance.

On draught at PDX Beer Week 2013 Kickoff Party at Lucky Lab. Pale golden color. Soapy grassy hop aroma. Taste is quite hop forward, with definite grassy bitter notes. OK, but not a favorite.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ the brewpub in Hood River. Pours slightly cloudy golden with thin head. Aroma is strong grapefruit hop notes. Taste is thin caramel malt, with juicy fresh hops on the finish. Big flavors of grapefruit, grass, and pine. Dry on the finish. Quite refreshing, and doesn’t seem as big as the 7.3 abv suggests. Tasty.

On tap at Suds and Suds. Dank and hoppy. Some malt in the background. Finish is both bitter and sweet. Grapefruit flavor comes out more as the brew warms. A well done IPA. Tasty.

Tap at Fiddlers.
Delighted to have the chance to try this old-time American hop in a single-hop beer. Surprisingly light-colored pour; the beer looks more like a golden ale than an IPA in the glass. Enjoyable clean flavor profile, big tropic fruit with herbal tea elements, 7+ % alcohol entirely hidden. Delicious.

Good looking draught beer. Not like an IPA, Soapy. This was the most memorable for me, the soapiness. It tasted like dish soap, it had texture like dish soap. It is not like a good beer.

didn’t really do it for me, maybe I’m too accustomed to NW hops, but this one just didn’t have too much going on.

Pint – Eastside Tavern Club - Olympia, WA
Dark amber in color, clear with a thin head. Nice hops aroma. This is a single hopped IPA. Good malt background and the hops add to the flavor. Floral, fruity and a light earthiness to the taste. This was a great beer.
