Orange in color with a white head. Big grapefruit, pineapple, and tangerine aromas. A little bit of mango, some sugar, pine, and a little bit of bread. Some floral notes, too. Thereís a nice citrus flavor of grapefruit and tangerine with a moderate tropical quality, too. Some caramel maltiness with a nice bitterness on the finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Light amber pour at GABF. Aroma of resin, citrus peel and a hint of toffee sweetness. Flavor spells out what the aroma hinted. Citrus/resin hops and a caramel malt backbone.

Bottle from JW77. Boring IPA. Pours an orange color. Aroma is resinous and some citrus. Flavor isnít bad, citrus, caramel malt. But its boring. Just ok.

UPDATED: NOV 5, 2012 Tap. Pours clear light amber, medium off white head, great lacing. Aroma is muted grapefruit, pine and herbs. Flavor is grapefruit, lightly spicy and sprucy, light bitter finish. Buttery and full bodied in the mouth. Nice IPA.

Hazy copper pour from firkin, fine foamy head persists. Very nice, light hop aroma, spruce, blended with hay. Bitter taste, not too strong, blended with caramel sweetness, and a hint of yeast from the cask. Alcohol note in their as well. Reminds me of a good homebrew.

Picked up a bottle at Johnís Marketplace, in PDX. Pours a dingy yellow beige with a huge pillowy off-white head. Nice fresh citrusy hop aroma with a slight husky papery note. Perfumy soapy hop flavor, plenty bitter na d a lingering background grainy malty profile. Quite strong hop character, but more of the soap and chemical kind. A bit of a let down for such a highly rated beer. But still a decent IPA... and thatís no "Bull"

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A: Poured a burnt orange color with good carbonation, nice white cap and some soapy like bubbles and lacing remains
S: Toasty, grapefruit, some spicy notes witha whiff of toasty smoke
T: Oh boy. Iím not exactly how fresh this IPA is but it needs help. First sip is bittering orange peel, grapefruit, spicey, biscuity, toasted with a faded hop presence. The back end is a slick, grapefruit hop bite with a annoying buttery bite blended with hop bitterness, some astringency and booze.
M: Heavy, unplesasnt and disturbing
O: Wave the white flag.

12 oz bottle from "Lifesource" Salem. $2.25
Burnt orange hazy body to this beer with a lovely creamy,thick off white head. Handsome.
Floral,spicy, fruity hop aromas abound..invigorating.
An intensly hoppy taste..yet not harsh at all but smooth..i think this is because it HAS a substantial malt back bone..even if its not obvious under the hop attack.Semi dry finish some marmalade flavours aslo. Good.
Great thick,luscious palate..smooth..very nice.
I really liked this IPA..very smooth and easy.

Bottle. A bitter India Pale Ale from start to finish. Slightly unbalanced but still very drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Amber with some good, clingy lacing. A surprisingly cereal aroma, sweet and sticky. A lot hoppier in the mouth. Plenty of herbal pine and citrus rind flavours. The bitterness is a little harsh and grating but it remains reasonably drinkable. Orangey and sticky.
