UPDATED: DEC 1, 2013 On draught at Gigantic. Full golden color. Grassy, sweet citrus aroma. Well-hopped with a great pine and citrus hop flavor, almost sweet not bitter at all. Definitely a favorite among IPAs.

Soft floral ipa. Pretty good, but needs more body/complexity to score higher. Dont avoid but dont seek out.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Amber pour with a bubbly white head. Aroma is caramel, tropical fruit, pineapple, and bitterness. Flavor is much like the nose with added notes of pine needles, bready malts, and earth. Fairly basic, but good.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Hattie’s Hat. Pours orangish golden with thin white head. Aroma is big fresh citrus hops. Taste is thin caramel malt; bitter earthy, piney, citrusy hops. Fleeting bitterness on the finish. Not bad, I may have been expecting more. Decent IPA, unfortunately not the best in PDX, if that’s what they were going for.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours hazy orange with a medium creamy off-white head that slowly dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is pine, dankiness, some citrus, floral, caramel. Flavor is light sweet and light bitter, dank and a bit orangy, pine resins. Finish is a bit harsh and bitter. Medium body. Nothing special, but a solid effort.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Golden with copper hues, minimal head, leaving a good lace. Light flowery aromas with hints of citrus. Light to medium body, low carbonation, simple, clean bitter flavors, with some herbal and citrus, finishing assertive a bit. Quite refreshing and clean without being spectacular.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slightly hazed orange color with a modest, cream thats slightly frothy. Aroma has a very strong orange nose with a light vanilla finish. Nose has an overall sweet profile with some modest bitterness. Flavor starts off with a mild amount of bitterness, sweet orange in the middle, some light sweetness from the malt and a very light touch of grassy bitterness that carries out to the finish. Body is a modest density with very low carbonation. Overall an okay offering but nothing unique.
