3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured an orange tint to a golden hued body with a fairly small off-white head. Aroma is quite floral, some malt sweetmess evident, but reminded me of European hops. Flavour brings some caramel yet it is somewhat overrun by a fairly acidic and astringent metallic hoppyness… I was expecting far more form this IPA. The finish is crisp and dry with bitter acidity and rendering of grapefruit peel. Ok IPA, but there’s so much more out there.

Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Aroma has a little honey, lemon, and a little bread maltiness. Light body, medium carbonation. There’s some light honey, lemon, caramel, some metal... It’s perfectly drinkable, but I wouldn’t revisit.

Tap at Full Sail in Hood River. Mild citrusy nose, with some solid roast notes. Pretty, bright straw color. Baby-food level of hopping, crisp and clean maltiness, some dark overripe fruit. Medium body. Nice, but not much as an IPA (doesn’t seem like 60 IBU).

Grassy/citrusy smell, pours a deep amber with a bit of head that lingers. Taste: a slight bitterness, nice roasted hop flavor with a watery finish. Light carbonation. Not bad at all.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Presentation: It was poured from a brown 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. Appearance: The body has a coppery color with a light haze and a tall light tan head. The head holds on well and makes some slick lacing. Smell: The nose has a big malty and wheat like yeast character which is balanced by an equally big hop presence. Taste / Palate: It?s flavor matches the aroma and comes via a full and smooth palate. Hop bitterness is herbal with a touch of grapefruit and it lingers long on the tongue.
