UPDATED: NOV 6, 2007 I really liked this IPA after a taste at Port Brewing... the aroma reaked!!! Taste was fresh cut pine, grassy and other citrus flavors.. The centennial hops really shined through. Very refreshing, very crisp, very good finish...top notch fresh hop offering.

Bottle courtesy of dirtymartini, thanks again! Hazy yellow-orange white head. Light grassy hops with some lemon and light pale malt. FLavors of somewhat earthy citrus hops, grass and pale malt. Lively carbonation on the medium body...light sweetness with a bitter/dry finish. Not bad.

Translucent, pale and polished gold in color with an oily off white residue residing on top. Sweet hop fury emanates from the bottleneck, and when examined through the glass, we’re dealing with greasy papayas, honey sweet lemon grass, mango rind with tropical enzymes keeping it light and bright while a refreshing lemon and lime rhyme drums in the distance. Bountifully sweet, brisk hop tails take pale honey to dried out dandelions and mid summer grass stems. Bright pulpy oranges with a sugar starved tangerine tendency. Light lemon butter droll to the herbal sweetness, rendering lemon grass with added honey butter for palate substance. Dry palate chafing to the roof of the mouth in the wake of the licking of the mango-grapefruit rind. Quelle balance with clean centennial accolades and just enough Chinook to keep the bitter aggression elevated through to the last drop. Mucho gusto, tpkenned.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Sampled at the Port Brewing on 12/2/06: Pours a clear bright golden with a frothy wispy-lacing white head. Aroma of piny earthy green hops and some light pale malty sweetness. Body starts with a biting carbonation, some mildly sweet pale malt and earthy bittering hoppy presence. I don’t think the hop flavor came out as much in this as it should’ve.
