3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at the brewpub
Hazy light amber color with creamy head. Even for a beer with expectations, the malt profile is not expressive, simple, with light caramel; the hopping level is not in line with 21st century IPAís, nor it has the PNW qualities, just a tiny bit of resins and citrus fruits.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
This 22 oz bottle was shared with Strykzone who had his own bottle I sent to him in a trade. We discussed it on Facebook Chat as we enjoyed our brews. Poured a clear amber with a white head. Nose of caramel malts and floral hops, some tropical fruit, and a hint of pine. Medium plus body. Clean mouth feel Flavor is dominated by the hops but there is a good malt base. The finish is big on the tropical fruit. Very tasty brew and good drinking.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Hayduke. We had it together via facebook chat. This beer is copper and semi clear. A creamy off white head is less than a finger. It leaves a little lacing. The aroma brings lots of caramel malts and fruity floral hops. This tastes like a classic west coast IPA but then a big shot of pepper kicks in. Later the hops get more floral. Caramel is steady and solid. The finish is tangerine fruit. This was pretty much a classic west coast IPA but with a few unique notes. I liked it.

Pen & Paper Log (Aug 2013)
c/o a friend returning home from OR
Aroma - hops dominate, there is also citrus, and some floral notes
Appearance - body is amber, clean liquid, and 1" white head, with some dappled lacing
Taste - the bitter is bitter in nature, with a moderate hop and some caramel malt backing it up
Palate - body is between light and medium, texture is more thin thank thick, the carbonation is below average, the finish not big on the hop profile.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Superb hopping gives this a really dynamic bittering presence -- tangy, rich, full of fruit and pine and even a little sour. Long finish, nimble on the palate.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle:   Amber, faint haze, thin to moderate frothy white head, spotty lacing.   Muted wet hop nose, slight overcooked vegetable.   Moderate bitterness on the tongue, mild to moderate sweetness, but also has a big of that overcooked vegetable tinge to it.   For an IPA its not bright, not all that hoppy either.   Seems fouled by age or temperature.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Dull wet/stale hop finish, with that overcooked vegetable profile.   First Mt Hood beer... hope the rest are better.

Had this on tap at Government Camp. Itís an ok beer. Itís pretty smooth, nice malty flavor but pretty uninspiring. Good but not great.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle from PDX. Clear amber with an off white head. Aroma of citrus, caramel and some light floral notes. Flavor is sweet caramel malt with a medium hop bitterness and no alcohol taste. Medium body with average to low carbonation. Decent IPA but a bit on the sweet side, hops not fresh, could be old bottle.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours amber with a medium white head. Aroma is light citrus hops and hints of malt. Flavor is light hops with a malty finish. Not really what you would expect from an ipa.
