3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Light orange amber, aroma of citrus and caramel. Light palate, to the point of being watery, detracts from the citrus rind hop character. Very thin malt character. There are so many better IPAs out there, but the saving feature for this brew is the $6 price tag for a six-pack.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Had this one bottled thanks to Arnie. Slightly hazy, dark yellow pour, lacy white head. Grassy nose, apricots. Flavor is dominated by citrusy hops, fades into a nice grapefruit and nutty malt. Sharp, dry finish. Excellent.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle, from 6 pack. Clear golden amber pour, off-white head. Lightly malty, some hops, and citrus. Not much too this, but a cheap easy drinking beer that I could drink a lot of.

3.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Not much head, just enough for an IPA. Nice golden color - very light aroma. Taste is good for a session IPA, you can definitely have a few and not be knocked out. For serious IPA lovers, not hoppy enough for you I would liken this to Goose Island IPA, just not as drinkable. Good for the money, not the best example but I would buy it again if I was looking for a multi-pint beer or for an evening of drinking.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle/22oz - Pours a hazy orangish amber in color with a small whitish head that quickly fades to a thin covering over the beer. Aroma is somewhat hoppy... some pine resin and grass. Flavor is is bit maltier with less than impressive hop flavor and bitterness. Disappointing for an IPA...

Cloudy golden pour with a thin white head. Aroma of citrusy hops with caramel and toasted malt. Flavor of citrusy hops, caramel and toasted malt. The body is light to medium with an oily texture and soft carbonation.

Is this really an IPA? grapefruity to a minimal. These beers seem to be a bit watery. refreshing clean but not much WOW factor the flavor spectrum does not vary a whole lot . for an Oregon brew I was a little disappointed but not tne worst mass produced beer I have tasted either. probably wont be buying this one again unless it is below five dollars a sixer. better than the blonde ale which really blew but I got what i paid for. A sub par IPA

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A golden IPA with a thin white head. A light c-hops in aroma over smooth mlats. In mouth, a rather light and non-descript IPA, wiht light biscuitty malt, light c-hops, a bit of a dissapointment. Tasted Dec. 19 2009.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very hoppy nose, of course--fresh and grassy. Deep amber color with a fluffy head. Sweet graining middle gets quickly pushed aside to allow for a powerful hop bitter that lingers. Solid IPA with nothing wrong with it, really. Good stuff.
