3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz bottle from "Lifesource" in Salem OR
Pours a typical burnt orange IPA colour but with a great thick,tight,creamy off white head.
Fruity/piney juicy hop aromas..pine,lemon zest,pink grapefruit and papaya..delicious.
Taste is pretty much the same as the aroma but with a nice light caramel malt backing which holds it together somewhat.
Good medium bodied palate..with medium high carbonation,very drinkable.
Good IPA..liked it.

Part of a flight at the brewery with Dadbra. Dark reddish orange with an off white head. Decent lacing. A ridiculous amount of citrus and pine come off on the nose and the flavor. Made my dick jump a little. Top notch stuff.

26th August 2014
Very hazy gold - amber beer, almost cloudy. Good pale cream colour head. Palate is light and crispy. Light semi dry malts, semi sweet. A modest orange - grapefruit citric hop. Very light hop spice. Crispy finish. Not bad but really wants more hop depth and intensity. Quite drinkable though.

Solid brew. Hard to tell how much would be going on without the grapefruit peel, but it’s nice. Has a sharp aroma and flavor, yet a softer feel. Moderate bitterness."

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from De Bierkoning, Amsterdam. Deep amber, hazy body, with a big, creamy, white head. Fresh aroma of grapefruit, pine, passion fruit, peach, caramel. Taste with about the same aromas, but with a pretty dominant grapefruit and dryness. Mouthfeel is medium to light, slick, with a moderate carbonation and it finishes bitter, dry, piney and citric. Very good. The nose is really delicious and fresh, but the taste is a bit too much dominated by the grapefruit for my liking and pretty strong, close to a Double IPA. Still a tasty and refreshing IPA, that also has distinct pine and tropical fruit notes and the right amount of caramelic malts.

Had this at the Hop Valley Brewpub in Springfield. Hoppy with a nice flavor. It was a bit "in your face" and not overly citrusy, so for me it is a solid IPA. Nice bitter finish. I enjoyed this!

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2014 On tap at Hop Valley in Springfield, OR. Decent hop nose. Taste is a bit overpowered with citrusy hops, but that could be the earthy DIPA lover talking. Great beer!
