Draught @ Albion. Faintly cloudy rich orange with small frothy off-white head, very faint citrus peel aroma, medium carbonation, lightly bitter orange peel taste, citrus flavor, longish bitter hoppy finish. A good IPA.

short lasting white head... the brew is slightly hazed lite golden.
Great punch of citrus hops that outweigh but donít blow out some nice pale maltiness.
Not quite bitter enough for a big PNW IPA, but the hops mid palate more than make up for it... Again, some pale malts help keep things in perspective.
Good body and carbonation.. finish reminds me of tangerine juice without the sweetness.... I guess maybe just tangerine zest.

Floral and lightly fruity hops - doesnít seem terribly fresh but I see no date on this or the session IPA. Not too impressed, but not bad either.

Fairly yeasty nose with some tropical fruit nose. Medium body, moderately bitter, but I did detect a bit of DMS. Light bodied. Big bitter finish. Not too bad, but nothing too special.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
bOTTLE. Pours a pale yellow with creamy white head and lace. Aroma is light sweet malt and floral hops. Flavor is a touch of sweet on the start with a nice floral bitter finish. The more you drank, the more the bitterness stood out. Medium body with good carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Bright golden, energetically active, with a huge top. The aroma is bright and full of citrus bloom. This drinks with a slippery feel, rife with a good balance of American west-coast IPA styles ... snappy acidity, citrus and a nice solid base of chewy malt. (#6033, 9/13/2015)

First beer after arriving back to society. The patchouli handcream isnít helping nail down the aroma. The taste is pretty good and powerful. Plenty of pepper, pine, rrgf on the nonsweet side, tangerine. Pretty good feel but damn does this ever fall apart. Very good right off the tap but it dies. I like them to warm a bit - donít make that mistake with this. It doesnít suck after but itís a different beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap pour at Tilt in Portland. Pint glass. Golden with orange hues. Aroma is heavy on hops with citrus characteristics. Kind of a standard IPA but itís enjoyable. Taste has plenty of bitterness but itís offset well by citrus and a little sweetness. Mouthfeel has a bit of oily nature. Aftertaste emphasizes the hoppy side of things. Drinkable with a just above session quality to it. Ninkasi delivers another successful effort.
