Oregon_butcher (60) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - NOV 1, 2013
Nice dark orange, red color. Smells of sweet malt, mellow hop aroma, and slightly of alcohol. Very mellow, smooth taste. Not much of a hoppy taste. Alittle earthy. Nothing stands out. It's an alright IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap in Denver for GABF 2012. Pours a bright golden color with a thick white head. A sweet nose of fruity hops and butter (I think a light infection set into this at GABF). Sweet caramel, citrus, earthy at times. Very mellow. Easy to drink. Decent. Will re-rate if possible.

A medium bodied India Pale Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops are citrusy and floral. Decent carbonation. Medium bitterness that lingers on for quite a while. Crisp and clean. Nice drinking IPA. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
