3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle from "Lifesource" in S.Salem,Oregon
Typical orange body for an IPA but with a very large thick and bubbly creme coloured head.
Fine and strong hop aromas spicy,fruity and pine like..very nice.
Taste typical deep ,dank PNW style..but has an intresting creaminess just below the surface.Thats makes this less a hop monster and more approachable and even balanced.
Nice palate though i think this could have used more carbonation.
Odd IPA at once typical then very untypical in that the creaminess makes this so easy to gulp.
I liked it though maybe on my next trip to Bend i can taste it at the source.

S: Piney, Crackers, Mild Grapefruit
T: Piney, Crackers, Mild Bittering Hops

Tap @ Brewforia: Semi-cloudy copper with a white head. Aroma of pine, juniper and all around great NW IPA elements. Flavors are floral with junipers and a great bitter aftertaste. A good offering.
