COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This big, glowing, powerful IPA is packed with assertive Northwest hops that are floral, citrusy and resinous. A healthy dose of Munich malt helps to provide backbone and balance against the hoppy attack. The result? Explosive! Brewed with Gambrinus Organic Pilsner and Munich Malt, Centennial and Cascade hops. 7.0% ABV, 75 BU

Bottle to tulip glass. I think this must have been waaaay past it’s prime, if I ever get a chance to score a fresh one I will re-rate. Pours golden cloudy orangey with a lot foamy white head. Munich malts on the nose, no hop presence whatsoever, this smelled like a run of the mill APA. Taste was more of the same, this has to be long past it’s time of goodness. Bitterness is quite low, the malt presence is pretty much all I’m tasting. Based on all the other characteristics of this beer you can tell its well made, the mouthfeel and carbonation are both very pleasing and again probably quite nice when fresh. This came across the country in a car and was one of the last beers I got after. Better luck next time methinks!

Draft pour at Frankies pizza. Pours a cloudy golden color with a foamy head and a ton of lace. Big citrus hops aroma. Citrus flavor up front with lemon and a touch of grapefruit. Hoppy finish. Good stuff. Will look for more from these guys.

Floral and citric for sure. Good quantity and quality of hops make this enjoyable. Even a little rye-like spiciness. The malt is a little heavier than I prefer, but not to a fault.

vadie (800) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 9, 2014
Ambré pale avec une grande mousse beige. L’arôme est d’abord très forte avec de la pamplemousse avec un peu du caramel, mais il deviens du citron après quelques minutes avec un peu du malt pilsner. Le goût est d’une IPA du nord ouest, mais la bière manque un peu de corps. La finition est sec. Je pense que il faut dire que d’abord je pensais que c’était une bière super bonne avec une grande arôme complexe, mais ce n’est vraiment pas le cas. Si j’ai pris un échantillon mon avis aurait été beaucoup plus positive. Avec une pinte j’ai un impression très different.

On tap at Rogue in Gastown in Vancouver. A medium amber beer with moderate white head. Faintly hoppy on the nose. Prominent citrus pine hop notes with mellow malt background. Yes! 3.6.

Vattnig Ipa med en långvarig besk eftersmak, frågan är men vart humlen tog vägen. Inte ofta jag blir besviken på öl från Oregon.

500ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is light citrusy fruits with some hints of grapefruit and pine and cereal grains. Taste is a grapefruit and pine hop bitterness balanced nicely with a fruity and malty sweetness. Medium bodied with good carbonation. A solid IPA that is well balanced and definitely worth sampling.

CampesinoTino (781) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUN 22, 2014
500 ml Bottle. Hazy golden orange pour capped with a healthy later of sea foam. Faint aroma of floral hops, toasted grains and citrus. Flavor is orange, tangerine and honey upfront along with some biscuit malt and pine to round it out. Also a bit of herbal hops bitterness and caramel in the finish. Overall, a fairly well-balanced PNW style IPA.

Had a pint of this heaven on draft at mothers in Portland with breakfast. It goes well with eggs and coffee! Fluorescent orange pour with white head. Fruity smell. Mild hops. Grapefruit and orange tropical flavor. Well done.
