Soured hop profile. Amber, medium body, regular head. Nothing amazing, but worth the drink.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Last stop in Portland during ABA Beer Tour 07. On draught as "Organic IPA" at the brewpub pours a clear golden amber brew with a fast dissolving white head. Aroma of light caramel malt, some sour apple, and flowery hops. Taste is slightly carbonated, medium bodied, a little syrupy, with a light bready with earthy hop flavors. Finish is light and smooth with a flat bitter aftertaste that lingers around for a while.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Half pint tasted at the LL Beer Hall in Portland, OR. Cask. FLoral, almost acidic hoppiness in the nose with some metallic notes. Rather faint aroma. Transparent light copper color with a frothy whitish head. Why is this transparent?? A very English style IPA. Lots of metallic flavor with biscuity maltiness to start. Finishes with mild bitter floral hoppiness. A welcome change from the typical palate-bludgeoning hoppiness of many of the IPAs in the PNW.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Portland tap. Golden color. Aroma was weak with hops. Simple flavor, med bitterness with a highly bitter finish that lingered. Just one thanks. Dirty lines, bad batch? Very different from the other opinions.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Hazy blond colour. Light hoppy aroma. Dry and bitter. Not offering a ton of flavour variety. Just bitter hoppiness and these aren’t really the hops I’d pick first for that sort of beer.

This is a great IPA. This is not thoe tyes that just kick you in the head and leave you NOT wanting more. This has a great flavor and the hops where just right for a good IPA. A nice dark amber color with a great haed. Loved the flavors and you could actually tatse a bit of the malts.

This starts out great, and you tink it will be a great IPA, but then it just disappears off the radar completely. This one leaves you really thirsty. A rich almost amber hue, with a nice aroma, that tingles your nose but leaves your tastebuds hanging.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reddish amber in color with a white head and sweet presence in the aroma. Not what I expected in an IPA. Very plain finish that left you wanted to know what happened?
