Reid (1860) - Salem,Oregon, 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 (6211) - 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.

douglas88 (5839) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 11, 2010
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.

spikester (603) - Salem, Oregon, USA - JUN 11, 2009
Hazy amber with a large white head from a fairly aggressive pour. Aroma has a fruity tang. Taste is sweet malts and rich leathery hops but seem to be too few for a proper IPA. Much closer to what I have experienced in British IPAs. Not a bad beer at all just lower on the hop spectrum than most West Coast IPAs. Might be a good introduction to the style. Hops are listed as Nugget and Cascade varieties.
