3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Fresh from a bottle purchased in Olympia (bottled 6/10/14, drank 6/31/14). I’m just going to repeat OldGrowth’s rating right before mine, because it seems perfect for this beer:
"Good aroma sweet. Caramel, pine, grapefruit. Clean browNish orange color good head and lace. Bittersweet flavor. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel. Bitter dry finish. Very nice."
I’d only add that the aroma was a bit tame, and that the bitter hop taste was very clean and well-balanced with the caramel.

This poured a hazy light orange with a white head. Aroma was of huge melon, grassy and tropical hops. Flavor more melon forward, light grainy character but not sweet or bitter, with a flooding fruity finish. Awesome writ.

Rather dull and slightly watery. Tiny bit of pine hops. Orange coloring. Light flavor all around for an ipa. More like a standard pale ale. Tap.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours copper with small off-white head. Nose has light passionfruit-like hops, honey notes - not super assertive. Hops in the flavor are much more prominent - spice, orange rind and resiny pine needle. A very bitter finish with a bit of heat that really grows on me as I work my way though.

4.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
My opinion, which doesn’t mean squat, but this is best brewery in Oregon, overall excellent IPA. Can’t say enough about fruity hop aroma, and great clean bitterness and awesome hop character.
