COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This English style IPA is a full-flavored, full-bodied brew that has a big bold malt character and intense aromatics. Itís a well-balanced, golden-colored brew that has a crisp hop finish that doesnít bite. With its palate cleansing finish, IPA is a perfect for highly spiced dishes with curry, ginger, garlic or cumin. This classic English style IPA is brewed with: 2-row Pale malt and is hopped with Challenger and East Kent Goldings hops

Pours a clear golden color with a faint film head. Light carbonation. Light grassy, noble hop aroma. Flavor leans toward the hop side. Light to medium body with a sharp finish. Iím just not into English style IPAís. Worth a try.

Gold. Thin head. Wispy hop aroma. Hoppy and malty. Nice moderate level of both.

bhensonb (13219) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 27, 2006
Deep golden color (like Boss Mocne 15!). Similar tiny bubbles. But an aroma of citrus and a hint of pine. Itís a light IPA, but the piney flavor is there. Itís a bit chewy, with a smooth feel. Thereís some malt, but well dominated by the bitterness. The finish is bitter, as it should be. Not enough hop to be an American contender, but It would put most Brits on end. Very drinkable.

Golden amber colored pour with a small white head. Aroma is hoppy, taste is hops, citrus (grapefruit mostly), and some sweet malts. Smooth drinking and crisp finish.

ChazMania (661) - Oceanside, California, USA - MAY 16, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 30, 2006 Bottled. Has a floral aroma. Not highly hopped nor bitter, seems balanced, mild malty aftertaste. Seems to taste good while in my mouth, but doesnít last long. Easy to drink. I would buy it again. ReRated on July 29th. I have been tasting alot of IPAís, this is bunk and not good as many other sinlge IPAís. For the intro hop person, maybe this will suffice, for a hophead, this is sharp and harsh.

shadey (2033) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 15, 2006
Orange color with no head. Aroma is not very hoppy at all. Flavor tastes like an english pale ale except in the finish where the hops come out. Very odd for an oregon IPA.

DYCSoccer17 (3549) - Woodland, California, USA - MAY 6, 2006
Bottle purchased from Tops Liquors in Tempe, AZ. Earthy, piney, mild grapefruit in the aroma. Perhaps some floral notes are present as well. Filtered, transparent golden-orange color with an off-white/yellow head that is pretty small, with small lacing. Sweet, toasted graininess to start, turning more earthy, bitter-hopped dry flavor. Some floral hops linger in the finish. This beer is dry, but it still maintains a creamy mouthfeel. A nice session brew.

ABUSEDGOAT (2424) - California, USA - MAY 5, 2006
Hazy amber, small to moderate head. Aroma is very fruity, citrus and grapefruit. Enough caramel to keep it balanced. I really enjoyed the balance here. While it was the usual bitter finish, the alcohol and sweetness were both controlled well IMO. Didnít notice the English hops though... doh. Why would a brewer in OREGON of all places use hops from England for their IPA?!

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2006
Bottle. Pours a clear amber with nice head that disappears rather quickly. Malts on the nose with a whisper of hops in the background. Flavors are apple cider with a slight bitterness. Maybe this is watery or maybe its smooth. Couldnít decide, but this is a session brew.

Is something wrong with this IPA or have I just been spoiled. It looks good, smells good and even taste good but for some reason itís just a little off. This could be a great beer.
