Theydon_Bois (9946) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2014
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 (1946) - 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.

5000 (6299) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 15, 2011
Bottle:   Golden, fairly clear with the exception of some sediment that floats about, huge foamy white head, sticky lacing.   Hoppy nose, candyish sugary aroma, reminds me some what of pixie stix or that Kool-Aid powdery cloud with a floral flair.   Almost more malty than hoppy.   Comes across as more of a Pale Ale than an IPA given its hop bite, or lack there-of.   Simple, light, and not all that robust.   American Pale Ale maybe, but an IPA its not all that hoppy.   Tiz okay, but overall its light and not all that IPAish.   Could be a little bit more biting, hoppy, and just generally hoppy.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - JAN 13, 2011
Bottle: Orange color with nice head and lacing. Nose of bright orange and pine; simcoe, centennial that blends with nice caramel and alcohol. Chewy flavor, big body, very nice.

22 ounce bottle shared by Jordan. Pours a clear golden color with a medium white head. The aroma is sweet fruity hops, some Amarillo perhaps? The flavor is very nice sticky fruity hops, light bitterness, very fresh and tasty.
