Smooth but kicking hoppy note. Discernible floral hop character. Full IPA with all the requirements.

Ungstrup (29281) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2008
Draft. A hazy amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma is sweet and very grassy. The flavor is also sweet and very grassy - is it Amarillo? The finish is dry grassy and very bitter. I like it.

BeerZack (288) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAR 30, 2008
On tap at Laurelwood on 52nd and Sandy (not the pizza place). Light golden-orange color with big off-white head that laces well. Intense fruity, almost tropical aroma. Grapefruit, pineapple, mandarin, tangerine and biscuits & honey. Some red apple. Soft creamy bubbles and low carbonation make this medium bodied brew smooth and very drinkable. Sweet lightly toasted biscuity malt is bursting with juicy hop flavors. Big pink grapefruit impression, orange, tangerine and piney resin on a lingering bitter finish without being offensively bitter. Hugely drinkable. Probably the best IPA I found in Portland.

dkingsella (152) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 24, 2008
On tap at Laurelwood Pub and Brewery in Portland. Pours copper with small white head. Citrusy hops in the aroma. Pretty balanced IPA. Nice grapefruit and pine flavor balanced with sweet malt taste. Not as hoppy as I expected from 80 IBU...nice fairly long lasting bitter finish.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - DEC 31, 2007
Draught at Concordia Ale House. Poured Red copper orange with small white head. Hoppy, floral aroma, very big. Much lacing. Big full motuh hoppy flavour, with much taste of the land. Light finish like a leaving train.

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 18, 2007
Tasted at Laurelwood brewery in Portland, Oregon--Poured a moderately hazy copper-amber-orange hue with a small white head. Big hoppy resinous nose with biscuity hops. The bitter fruity hops were over powering and slightly acidic. Earthy, palate-wrecking bitterness. Yum!

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - NOV 19, 2007
Tap @ Restaurant: Clear copper, light head and lacing. Nose of citrus and pine, some chewy catty hops and light malts to balance. The flavor is more catty too with pine and dry hops to boot. Pleasant.

IndianaRed (2416) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 17, 2007
On tap at the BP. Slightly hazy medium orange amber. Nice cotrusy hoppy citrusy aroma. Flavoe is malty and not quite up to what rhe aroma teased me with. Medium light bite. Pale and papery. Moderately bitter on the tail.
