3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tremendous build-up of yellowish, dense foam, leaving lots of lace over hazy orange beer. Very cheesy hops, bit of citrus(peel), pine. Some caramel in the background. Bitter-piney flavour, spruce or other conifer. Resiny as few. Very light cheesiness remaining in the flavour. Wry, dry-out effect. Medium bodied, very carbonated. If the intention was to give an impression from the Oregon pinewoods, mission accomplished. But a bit more drinkability might have turned out beneficial.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Orange-amber pour, huge head that lasts quite a while. Pine and citrus in the nose. The taste follows through, with citrus (bitter grapefruit, mostly) and pine easily identifiable, on top of a caramel-sweet backbone. Bitter-sweet finish, somewhat dry (which is a plus from me). Not a super complex beer, but I don’t think it should be.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at the brewpub. First drinkable beer of the 6 I’ve tried so far. Very overrated here, though. Nice citrusy nose. Medium palate. Finish is a touch unbalanced but not terrible.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Tap at Luc Lac in Portland. Skinny bowling pin glass. Deep coppery color with off white head and nice lacing. Aroma has bitter citrus characteristics with a piney hop presence. Taste follows suit leaning on a bitter citrus rind and hops. Almost overly bitter with minimal sweetness. Missing the rounded mouthfeel of other IPAs. Not one of my favorites but the location was awesome.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Aroma of tropical fruits and resin, low intensive with solid malty back. In taste sweet with resiny flavours, medium bodied with grapefruit bitterness. Decent, as almost always with american beers would nice to get fresh one.
