Poured from bomber, picked up at the brewery last week. Cloudy golden with medium white head. Nose was fruity, tropical, with a sweet malty taste. Medium bodied, carbonation, with a long bitter finish. Good IPA.

Great hop aroma hit my nose with this first beer of an 11 beer sample session with Steve, CelticBrew and the infamous DrBayern, who I am sure ahs waited to be review #10!!!! It poured slightly cloudy with a nice light lacy head. The first taste gave a nice bite of hops, and the finish was equally as refreshing! An Olympic Gold Medal Winner at MY games!! And NOW, DrBayern may impart his words of wisdom!!!!!

Aromas I get bubblegum, peaches, sugar and apricot and (unusually) the new-furniature smell. But I like it. The aromas remind me a lot of cutting into fresh fruit, like a rock melon. SO awesome.
Flavours - mild bitterness mixes with a perfect sweet, caramel malt. Turns into juicy fruit with banana, pineapple, passionfruit.
Relatively full bodied. I like this a lot.

It’s all about the free range coastal water. Cloudy golden pour with a thick cream white head. Floral hoppy nose. Really lacks a distinct palate, but the lingering bitterness is nice. Really balanced hops: citrus, sweetness and crisp bitterness.

On Tap @ Rogue in Portland. Hazy copper, with a thick orange tinged head. Wonderful hoppy citrus aroma, like a good whiff of fresh grapefruit. Hazy and thick. One of Rogue’s very best. Nice sweetness balanced deftly by copious hops. This one is a keeper. Anyone know ABV ??

pour orange with a red tint and a big fluffy head. I did not enjoy this beer at all, i felt it was like drinking bitter orange peelings. It was sweet with a strong citrus peel taste, there was some pine and lighr spicyness to it and it finished bitter.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle, poured a nice peachy-gold color, off-white head, nice carbonation. Flavors of pine resin, citrus - the Amarillo hops are are at the forefront of the hop blast. Not totally crazy about this IPA, but it is definitely drinkable.
