The Dan journal #389. Tasted 8/5/10. 22oz bomber. Filtered with a dark golden hue. Webbed off-white head. Aromas of subtle oranges and herbal grassy hops. Medium bodied and rather astringent. Good bitterness with a bright effervescence and a dry finish. Flavors of citrus fruit, especially oranges and grapefruit. Bitter finish and mildly sticky. Very well crafted and drinkable!

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Poured orange with medium white head. Much lacing. Citrusy aroma, but marred by an unfortunate warm rubber smell. Pleasant hoppy flavour, not too bitter. Well balanced.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bomber. Pour is bright orange and clear with a nice soapy head that leaves some lacing. Aroma is nice and fruity citrus, but is faint and clean. Taste is bitter and dirty grapefruit citrus and a well mixed malt. Palate is gritty a chaulky that finishes dry. I really liked this one and will buy some more.

2011 backlog. Bomber. Pours cloudy orange with a thin white head. The nose is perfumey hops and malt. The taste is fruity hops, toffee and a major bitter resin finish that lingers. Medium bodied. OK IPA but unbalanced. 3.2

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light orange with a yellowed-newsprint head. Musty nose (not a good saison way) of rotten grapefruit rind. Yikes, that’s really off. The flavor is just a weak thin, slightly sour, slightly metallic IPA, but the nose makes it near to undrinkable.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dry leafy aroma, bright clear copper, thick creamy white head. Strong cantaloupe character and biscuit malt, juicy and dense, some apricot tartness and an earthy weight. Interesting mesh of flavors, I dig it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 Oz bottle from Roth’s Vista Market,Salem OR
Nice looking IPA here deep slightly hazy orange body and a nice thick ,bubbly off white head.Aroma is hoppy but not as much as expected, mainlly grassy, fruity in aspect..some breadieness in the back.
Very hoppy flavour to it, but like the label states..very bright and fruity..really gives a "zing" to the exierience.
OK on the palate, not astonishing but to style..nice fruity bitter after taste
Overall a pretty simple beer actually. Not Full Sails best IPA but acceptable.
