Draught sample at the Portland Pub. This turned out to be a great recommendation from the bartender. I thought it was a really fresh IPA that had tons of citrus and no harsh bitterness.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - APR 25, 2010
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden orange. Dense cream coloured head. Plenty of lacing as it falls away. Great aroma as expected with plenty of citrus, mainly grapefruit and pine resins thanks to the hops. Also some dried apricots, passionfruit and malt sweetness to add some balance. Great aromas. Plenty of malt sweetness up front and then resiny hop bitterness near the end. Not as aggresive which adds to the balance. Quite liked this one.

edwardbass (518) - Illinois, USA - JUN 18, 2010
Bottle from Friar Tuckís in Springfield, IL. I didnít get a lot of aroma from it, but the appearance and taste were very good. A nice lingering palate of bitter hops. Iím not quite able to describe things like "grapefruit" and "resin", etc., but I definitely tasted "grapefruit". Very, very good IPA.

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.

650ml brown bottle. Colour is a deep golden with orange hints. Beer is hazy. Decent fluffy white cap on top. Foamy, clingy, thick lacing. Aroma has some pineapple fruitiness and a bit of light pine spiciness. A lot of hop flavour - spice and pine, also some fruity notes, again pineapple, also some sweet orange. Dry and hoppy bitter finish with grapefruit coating the tounge. Also notes of grass in the aftertaste. Fairly strong carbonation, medium bodied, good drinkability. Found this one to be a bit of a quaffer. Nice.

TAR (2499) - Lafayette, Colorado, USA - MAY 16, 2011
Hazy straw-hued orange. Gentle pour raises a voluminous cap of fluffy and sticky white froth. Charming nose of apricot jam, white grapefruit, dried pineapple, lightly toasted biscuits and candied pecan. Soft, graceful carbonation. Complex inundation of citrusy and leafy hops are capped with a kumquat-peel bitterness and juicy dabs of lemon pulp. Clean and deeply complex hop profile. Savory toasty-malt foundation showcases comfortable heft and remains appropriately secondary to the voluptuous hop blend. Malt persists with light notes of crackers along with a crisp earthy crackle which dovetails with the lustrous peach-candy esters. Airy phenols gently dust the palate, lightening the weight of the body and bolstering drinkability. Resins cling to the palate, but are fairly polished and stop shy of tarnishing the predominately bright hop character. The well-balanced finish juggles pepper-, grass- and leaf-tinged hop bitterness with sweet and toasty toffeeish malt. When fresh, this is a very good brew. A refreshing change of pace from your monotonous run-of-the-mill American IPAs riddled with grapefruit rind and caramel. Comes off as more of a hoppy golden ale than an IPA, but regardless of style, cheers to Rogue for creating an original, quaffable, and balanced hopcentric beer.

3fourths (8055) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 5, 2008
22oz bottle pours light and cloudy orange with a 1/2 inch white head. Pungent fresh hop nose, full of citrus orange, lemon and pineapple, dry and grassy, somewhat dank, but very fresh and enticing. Bitterness is medium to heavy, malt body is mostly smooth and full, fresh fruity melon and oranges all around, wonderfully fruity and fresh, lightly drying in the finish. Very nice.

bhensonb (11130) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 16, 2008
Bomber from Bottle Trek. Hazy gold color with a frothy white head. Resin and citrus aromas over a warm malt backbone. Medium in body, moderate, soft carbonation. Flavor is lightly sweet malt with a good dose of resin and grapefruit. Nice dry and bitter finish. Sure there is sugar, it just is not that noticeable. Stands above the run of the mill IPAs. It just keeps getting more so with time.
