Pours orange. head is there but light. Nose is grape fruit, lime, orange, pineapple, spicy citrus and some resinous hops. little malt aroma but i think it sort of blends in. Flavor is all of the hops mentioned with some bready sweet and toasted like malt flavors to back it up. Full body with a dry finish. medium light carbonation. Good brew.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crisp, super hazy golden coloured body with a nice, two centimetre tall just off-white head that leaves a nice, slightly soapy lace. Aroma of bright grapefruity and pine hop smells, some light sugars, a bunch of yeast, a good dose of malt and a nice sticky resin smell at the end. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy, herbal and piney hops show up front with a good malt backbone, some slight peach and apricot flavours and a smooth yeast and bready finish. Aftertaste has a smattering of hops with a great balance of malt and an assertive but not pungent or overpowering hop flavour. Overall, a very nice IPA with a solid flavour profile, a great balance and enough of the PNW hop style to be one of the better examples of an IPA that i’ve had in a long while. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Portland (Pearl), Oregon on 27-April-2013 for US$3.99 sampled at home in Washington on 21-June-2013.

22oz bottle from Roths Sunnyslope Market in S.Salem.
pours a slightly hazy burnt orange with a rough and tumble bubbly off white head.
Very healthy hop aromas to this one,citricfruity an juicy hop i am assuming this is fresh!
Taste is the same as the aroma but with a strong burnt toffee backing very good.
Good palate does not let the beer get boring.
Overall an excellent PNW IPA

Can from 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours a bright medium golden orange/copper, moderate amount of head. Aroma is sweet, grapefruit, pineapple. Body is lighter, finish moderately hoppy, slight bitterness and a surprisingly long-lasting finish. Not the best local IPA, but still pretty damn tasty.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
From a 22oz Bomber. Pours a light fuzzy golden with a real nice head. Lacked the intense aroma I expected from this beer but has a good hop profile and a certain dryness to it. Had floaty ’stuff’ at the end of the pour that wasn’t eye pleasing but harmless. Great label! I would probably buy it again but be sure to get it on tap when in Springfield!
