Golden orange with a fluffy but rapidly dissipating slightly off-white head. Bubbly carbonation, almost soda like at first. Crisp, clean aroma with some light hops. Body is smooth and drinkable with a nice light piney, grassy hop bite at the end. The hops actually linger and accumulate with each sip. Not terribly complex, but a very good warm weather beer (which is what it’s supposed to be).

220z bottle. Rating #59. Very thick looking hazy medium brown pour with lots of stuff floating around and an off-white head. Light hop nose, some caramel maltiness that give it a slight sweetness. Bitterness up front, not a whole lot other than that, hard to get anything, meh. (1406)

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22. Pours a cloudy burnished dark amber with a dense and creamy platinum blond head that falls fairly quickly away but never falls lower than a solid disc of mousse atop the rest of the beer. Plenty of sedimentary rings of lace and sunspots atop that. Really a showy little spotlight hog of a beer. Big forward pine and mango nose, very abundantly hoppy, lots of power to it. Creamy medium body with plenty of lively carb. Toast, caramel, pine, and mango barging through on the mid palate. Very coherent and harmonious, but still tons of power there. Long resiny finish. We’ve all had this beer under many names from many different places by now, but it never gets old when it’s made well from good ingredients, and this beer is a rock-solid example.

Pretty crisp and carbonated. Slight bitterness that lingers for awhile. Close to being a session beer. Pours a nice orange with thick head.

22oz. Pours a deep amber, nice white head that had insane retention, looks like loads of carbonation. Kind of fruity, kind of grassy aroma, some hop presence. Thin flavor, good blend of malt and hops, hops dominate in the end and lingers for a good while. Medium high carbonation, slick, thin-ish body.

Tap in Portland, OR (Portland Westin). A light amber with a filmy off-white head. Toffee/caramel smell with some floral/piney hops. Some bitter on palate. I wouldn’t go out of my way to buy this beer - was a little average.

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz. bottle- Pours deep golden with a thin white head and lively carbonation bubbles, aroma is kind of grainy with some mild hops. The flavor is fruity grapefruit with a lingering bittlerness, this is more IPA than the Eel River Organic IPA I had before this, the hops are crisp and clean and very mellow bitter. I like this, this brewery never fails to impress.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A fun ale consisting of a golden caramel color and a nice light tan head. The flavor has a nice extra bitter/hoppy combination which I enjoy as a double IPA drinker.
