Bomber bottle. Pours a clear reddish pale amber, with a thin white head, slight breenish tinge. Mild aroma of spruce, but not much head to push it. Tastes is a heavy bitterness with some citrus tones, with a medium slightly sweet malt body underneath. Full body, creamy texture, would be helped with livelier carbonation. Finishes with a grassy bitterness. Pretty good...

I do not wax on poetically about beer but I do know the quality of a beer once tasted. This review is not about my tastes but reinforces the numbers, which are arbitrary.

Sad to interrupt Throw Momma From the Train to crack open another beer but if it doesn’t suck too much perhaps it ain’t a bad thang. The head’s okay, yellow orange body’s okay. I smell the Portlandia brewhouse on this one, crowded on a friday night, long wooden picnic tables inside with hipsters and long beards handling the many taps behind the bar, that chick with all the piercings trying to enjoy all the craft beer like she’s some kind of conoisseur but really just wanting a decent joint and a few shots of vodka to space out on. Those overwrought onion rings from some kinda artisanal batter that really should taste good but are more bland than the kind you ate at the diner last saturday morning at 4am to beat that hangover. All sorts of hops come out when you sip this, fiddling with your iphone while the groups of the uni grads and must-be-seen late 20’s types debate various things like safe spaces and banning everything they don’t agree with. Kind of a bitter finish, like take the peel off that lemon or something. It’s getting crowded and you sampled a few but the vibe of this place is just a little to in your face, not chill as you’d hoped, too many trying too hard to be too much. You finish it off and head down the street to that old irish pub where there’s another IPA, perhaps not as trendy, but the place is filled with old guys and a few old relaxed gals that can still hold a conversation and left their mobile phones at home. You order a round.

Hazy amber beer, good pale cream colour head. Palate is light, semi dry and a good minerally crispness. Light malts, modestly sweet, trace of caramel. Hops are orange, orange peel, light spice and grapefruit. Tangy bitterness before an airy finish. Citric peel dominated IPA. Nice.

For those who like their IPA sweetish and with grapefruit.

Just an ok Ipa. Well balanced, but not particularly interesting. Pours an ugly yellow with a white head. Smells of pineapple, pine and tropical fruit. Taste is very basic. Had on tap at the brewery.

Hazy blond colour. Has a nice aroma and flavour with elements of tropical fruit, citrus pith, caramelised peach and resinous hop. Refreshing and not overly bitter.

Can at home. Hazy light orange pour, thin white head. Aroma of citrus, floral hops, marihuana, tangerine and resinous pine forest. Flavor is bitter, fruity, refreshing citrus and balanced by a solid amount of subtle malts. Great IPA.

Interesting IPA from can. The malt really shines through and makes for an interesting brew.
