Bottle straight from Portland. Big aromas & flavors of citrusy, bitter, oily hops. Malt balance is there, but the hops really shine. Very fresh & bright tasting. Quite enjoyable.

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.

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!
