Clear golden pour with a huge creamy head. Lots of lacing. Aroma is very strong of citrus. Mouth is creamy. Taste is slightly spicy with citrus, pine & a little sugar. Really nicely balanced. I could drink this on frequently.

Brought this back home from my trip to the OR coast. Pours a nice clear golden color with a nice frothy head. Scent is more of an English style IPA to me, grassy and hay scents as well as piney. Taste is a bit citrusy with herbal flavors. This is a very clean, refreshing IPA. Nicely done.

Finally, finally I get to try this beer. Brought home a bottle from Oregon. Did not disappoint, pours with a nice head that retains some lacing. Color is fairly clear bright orange. Aromas of pine and lemon. Flavors are a tour de force: it starts with lemons then moves to grapefruit, turns a little more sweet before finishing with a strong hop bite. Great full, creamy mouthfeel. Finish is long lasting. A masterful composition, a beer that straddles the border between IPA and DIPA

Nice fruity, spicy hop flavor and aroma. A lot of Cascade grapefruit/orange. Maybe a little leafy in the flavor? Nice light malt backbone: light bread; sweet, but not too much.

650ml bomber from Belmont Station in Portland, OR pours a golden orange color with a 2 finger white head with decent retention and leaving some decent lacing. Aroma is pine and grapefruit with some tropical fruit and caramel notes. Taste is a piney grapefruit hop bitterness with some tropical fruit and malty sweetness. Light to medium body with modest carbonation. A really nice IPA which is well balanced and tasty.

Tap. Dark golden with foamy cream head. Smells like grapefruit cotton candy sprinkled with pepper. Nice strong hoppy flavor. Nice long bitter finish.
