Bomber. Great nose of piney, grassy, bitter hops. A little caramel malt in there, too. Flavor does not back up the big nose, unfortunately. Muted notes of grass, citrus. Was expecting alot more from this beer, esp after reading all the hype. Not bad, though.

Cask at the brewpub. Pours light gold in color with a faint white head. Citrus and hop aroma. Medium body and light bitterness which was refreshing after a week+ in NW Oregon. Probably a nice IPA on tap and in bottle but the cask version hits the spot.

"this one well received as well, though i’ve seen wild fluctuation in the quality of organic brews. This one just didn’t do it for me. Nothing stands out, one of the most boring of the night, and a sub par ipa. 2014 - another HUB beer that sucked in a can but was nice at the pub (cask). 2.6-3.5."

Cask version at H.U.B. in SE Portland. Visited this location as part of my NW brew tour ’14. The brewpub itself is first rate and should be part of any brew tour of Portlandia. I’m not a huge fan of IPA’s, but I always go for a cask conditioned version of the ale. I’ve noticed that the aging process mellows out the bitterness and allows the hop flavor to come to the fore. This version has everything you’d want in an IPA: full flavor, nice aroma, good color. HUB’s cask version of their IPA is a top notch example of the style.

660 ml. Tasting session with my friend Franky. La couleur de cette robe est orangée. La mousse est pauvre. Le nez est un mélange de fruits exotiques, d’herbes et de fleurs. Ce sont des arômes qui ne révolutionnent pas le genre mais qui réussissent à plaire aux plus exigeants. En bouche, les oranges et les fleurs poussent sur une base maltée caramélisée qui n’est certainement pas trop poussée. Au palais, j’ai l’impression d’un liquide au corps de moyenne densité avec un pétillement assez ou trop mou et une texture qui prend l’eau. La finale est amère, florale et fruitée. Facile à boire mais tellement comme des centaines d’autres du genre.

maekchu (2160) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 20, 2014
Tap at Hopworks BikeBar. Heavy citrusy nose, sweet pale malts, some caramel. Medium golden straw color. More or less balanced opening, with sweet peachy notes and lots of citrus. Moves along to solid bittering and ends good, gentle hop tracks. Medium body. Clean, with light fruit, and good bittering. Refreshing stuff.

KyotoLefty (6503) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUL 4, 2014
Tap at Marciero. Deep blond color. Lots head, slightly cloudy, orange tints. Nose of peach, mango, melon, bread. Interesting nose with lots of stone and tropical fruit but not much citrus notes. Bready, fruity flavor that got nicer and nicer as it opened up and warmed. Original and tastety.

vyvvy (4000) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JUN 26, 2014
On tap at the brewpub - Pours golden with an off-white head. The aroma has light pale-ish malt and some grapefruit. It has a medium body that is lightly rough and fairly mild carbonation. The flavor starts off modestly sweet with the malt and shows light caramel and nice amount of grapefruit hoppiness. The finish has more grapefruit, pine and spice. Nice IPA.
