3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle purchases at Belmont Station in Portland, OR--Clear orange-copper body with a thin yet frothy white head. Nutty, bready fruity nose. Sharp, tangy mouthfeel. Floral, creamy, bitter, oily, slightly cloying flavor. Surprisingly delicious beer.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours a copper/amber color, with little to no head. Carbonation is distinct from first glance. Goes down fairly smooth, hoppy flavor is apparent but not near a strong level. There is a hint of caramel malt, could have actually been a little bit more malt flavor as the Northwest hops in this beer tend to taste a little skunky and more malt might have balanced that a little better. Very thin, but a good value because of the extremely low price. Average.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2008 12 oz bot. Crystal clear light copper/amber with plenty of fizzy carbonation, decent slightly off white head and lace. Fair IPA aromas but masking a definite macro background. Flavor is fair to decent American IPA up front, but followed closely
by that universal, sterile, macro, soap, and baking soda taste. Some caramel malt sweetness & adequate bittering hops but mixed with the descriptions above. Into medium bodied. Tastes like the adjunct cereal grains are in here.
Better than I thought it would be though, considering the price, and since I have a case minus 3 in dee fridge Iíd better like it enough to finish it off. Doubt Iíll buy it again though.

UPDATED: JUN 9, 2008 Aroma of banana and bread.
Tastes like Private reserve, but with more hops. vinegar-citrus bitter, some malts.
Highly carbonated, lack-luster palate.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Poured golden in color with a touch of amber. Small head quickly diminished to a lingering white band of bubbles around the glass. Aroma of piney, and floral hops. Tastes of mild hop bitterness, an underlying mild caramel sweetness. Easy drinker, but for me it could have a bit more hops.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Poured medium honey amber with a thick lasting white head. Rather too foamy as it almost spilled over the top of the glass. Faint floral aroma. Light body, not full like an IPA IMHO should be. Lekker lasting hoppy finish. This beer ended much better than it began. Itís a servicable inexpensive IPA and rather better than some of Henryís other offerings.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2008 Bottle... This is one of the better looking beers I have poured from Henryís, a clear honey tone with a thick white head. Aroma isnít much, just kind of malt and crackers. Flavors of biscuits, ginger, malt, and a hoppy finish. Isnít too bad for Henry Weinhards, if this was an east coast IPA, Iíd be pretty impressed, but doesnít compare to Northwest IPAs.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz Bottle Pours out a goldish orange. Topped with an off white cream head. A light soap hop aroma. Tast of pretty good hops. Not much bitterness on this one. A little of the cardboard tast at the end. I think this is the best Henry brew I have had.
