A similar style IPA as the Chehalem Mt IPA, but brewed with more hops and malts. A true IPA lovers beer.

On tap at Golden Valley, pours a clear golden copper with a small beige head. Aroma reveals notes of piney hops, some herbal notes and biscuity malt. Flavour is high on the herbal hops, with floral and piney hops further back - just enough dry malt backbone. Leaves a light bitterness on the finish. Well-constructed IPA, but I preferred the Chehalem.

Draft - Lots sweet malts and Sri out hops. Clear gold with a decent white head. Lots of sweetness and a really big and long bitter finish. Bitterness is a bit overwhelming and unpleasant.

Bomber from Roth’s. 6.8%. Dark amber in color. Nose is hoppy with some fruity character and a little sweetness. Dry hopped character up front. Pretty good malty backbone. Finish is very bitter grapefruit peel. Pretty nice clean IPA.

Keg at the brewpub in Beaverton, 11/11/14. Clear golden with a moderate off white spotting and edgework. Nose is orange squash, juicy hops, light pine, grapefruit tinge. Taste comprises orange pith, hoppy pangs, melon, straw, juicy citric peel. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with hop bitterness. Ok IPA.

Couleur de cuivre brumeux avec un tête moyen beige. L’arôme d’houblon et agrumes. C’est un peu plus malté que habitude pour les IPA du côte ouest et ça atténue l’amertume. Il y a un peu d’agrumes dans la finale. Unique pour le style et région. Une très bonne bière.

Really solid IPA but nothing fancy, resinous notes with a hint of herbal, some hop notes in finish.

troopie (2291) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JUL 10, 2013
Bottle. Brown red pour with thick head. Strong pine and citrus note in aroma. Flavour has a caramel streak, rather pleasing in an IPA. Light and speedy finish.

Reid (2138) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 8, 2013
22 oz bottle bought from Grocery Store Outlet in Salem.( by the railway tracks). Slightly cloudy orange ale topped with a small bubbly off white head. Very strong piney hop aromas even with a partial blocked nose ( cold) its very strong! Taste is very grapefruit like but with good malt backing..finishes off strongly and tastily bitter. Goodn palate carbonated just right. Nice drinkable IPA far better then the old Chehalem Mountain IPA!

On tap at the brewpub. A light India Pale Ale. Caramel malt with a little pine and grapefruit. Finish was pretty bland.
