3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz can, excellent, pours a hazy orange color with a nice white head and excellent lacing. Nice citrus hop aroma. A bit of ethyl acetate, but it’s not offensive, and a bit of caramel hop oxidation. Sweet and bitter flavor. Oxidation is a bit more apparent in the flavor, but the nice orange citrus taste sticks around as well. Would love to try fresher, but pretty damn solid either way.

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.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bottle- Pours golden orange with a one finger pillowy white head that leaves a ring of nice lace. Aroma is sweet malt and spicy hops. The taste is sweet light malt, well balanced, hops are there imparting a mild dry finish, not really getting any usual citrus and maybe a little pine. Body is medium and carbonation is medium. Not bad.

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.
