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.

Six pack of cans picked up from the Amaco by my hotel. Once the can is opened, some foam comes out the top. Don’t worry mon’ it’s no infected. Could not tell u what it looks like since it was enjoyed in can form. Nose has light resin. Taste is balanced, maybe a small fraction to the bitter side. Some malt sweetness prevails, resin. Medium body. Well done.

12 oz can, thanks Amber. Aroma is candy sweet, pine, perfume, floral, grapefruit. Pours slightly hazy golden with a huge off-white fluffy head with excellent retention; laces nicely. Taste is bittersweet with an emphasis on bitter. Body is medium to nearly thin, carbonation high. Nice enough.
