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.

3.5 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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Brouwer’s Cafe. Pours orangey amber with a white head - terrific spoty lacing. Aroma has sweet toffee, pine, resin. Taste is sweet caramel, resin and citrus. Some pine. A bit rough. Becomes more and more bitter throughout the glass. Finishes bitter with hints of sweet. Better than non hoppy brews, but rough.

Can. Pours a hazy amber with a floral hop filled aroma. Hop lover beer for sure. A little bit of sweet fruit in there too. Finishes really smooth and full of flavor. Easy drinking. Very well done.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours three fingers of head on a cloudy medium straw colored body.
The aroma is pine and orange. Pretty nice.
The taste is quite piney, a solid dry bitterness throughout. It has a good malt backbone.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
It’s a good IPA.
