Pours a hazy golden colour with an orange tinge and and lasting thin white blanket along the top. Aroma is tropical fruit, sweet orange, grass and light maltiness at the end. Flavour is grapefruit, medium-high bitterness that lingers, some spiciness, earthy, and a subtle malty sweetness is present throughout.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2013 Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a frothy off white head that has decent retention. Aroma is huge citrus, grassy hops with a bit of caramel sweetness, almost has a dirty earthiness to it. Taste is grassy, citrus hops upfront with some bready caramel like malts on the finish with a nice soft bitterness throughout. The bitterness is a bit astringent on the finish and doesn’t seem to go away. Overall a nice palatable ipa that’s easy to drink.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at home. Pour is deep amber with a big white head and great lacing. Earthy, dirty, caramelly aroma - light touches of grass, wet dog, peach, and bread. Taste is grassy, earthy, spicy hops, bready, caramel, and biscuit with a big bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation.I don’t really dig this one, maybe it is a bit too old. I keep getting extra’d old ass IPA’s. Not cool.

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber from trade with michaelinwa. Pours a slightly cloudy golden orange color with a big pillowy head that fades very slowly. Aroma is faint and a bit odd. Getting brown sugar, citrus, biscuits, and some spiciness. Taste is better than the aroma. Brown sugar sweetness is still there but it’s minor. Moderate bitterness and a biscuity malt help to balance out the fresh lemon citrus, pine, and hop spice. Finish is even a bit creamy and very spicy. Kinda thicker mouthfeel because of the bubbly carbonation. This beer really grew on me as a drank it. A fairly unique IPA that I really enjoyed.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2013 Draught at the brewery during Zwickelmania 2013. Great hop aroma, some pine and more citrus. Hazy honeyish color. with a tiny frothy head. Initial has big caramel up front with a nice dose of hopping / in mid palate, the hops just explode onto the tongue, and some spice notes emerge / finish is smooth and clear, with great hop traces. Medium body, with hops apparent as a texture. Mmmm! An excellent IPA from one of the newest Portland breweries (Gigantic came in #4 on the list of RB New Breweries for 2013.)
