4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap @ Brewery’s tasting room. Clear gold-orange pour with a short white head leaving minimal lace. Strong citrus fruit nose: oranges, mangoes and peaches and a hint of grass. Start is hoppy, citrusy and fruity, and slightly tart. The middle has hardcore pine and resin flavors. Finish sees a return of the tartness followed by a long pine bitterness. Despite the hop-forwardness, the body is not ignored here. Generous malts contribute to a medium-heavy, toasty body with a subtle powdered sugar-caramel flavor.

GABF 2010. Hazed light orange decent white head. Aroma is fruity, grapefruit citrus hops on top of some corny dms and light toasty cereal grains light sweetness. Flavor is light fruits, then grapefruit pine and citrusy hops, oily, more dms light solvent as it warms and floral hops as well. A bit off and the dms hurts it.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Served on tap at the brewery. The bartender was excited for this one going to the GABF. The appearance is some golden brown hue with some bubbles and off white head. The flavors and aromas are full of pine fresh hops galore. This brew is great for the Pacific Northwest. It’s like taking a trip through some of the beautiful coniferous forest in the beautiful state. Some other notes I can’t quite place. A solid DIPA with a slightly different hop profile.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Brouwer’s Hopfest. Huge musky sour, same note from many other PT beers that I can’t stand for some reason. Lots of peachy hop but odd purple sour in the end.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Brouwer’s Hopfest 2010. Medium orange pour. Holy crap peaches and caramel corn! Maybe some tart apple... weird flavors for an IPA, but really, really tasty. So much fuzzy fruit it’s almost a sour - even a bit of tartness in the flavor. Yum!

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at ptbc. Pours a cloudy burnished medium amber with a dense and creamy white head and tons of lace. Big guava and lemon nose, very bright and oily and acidic. Creamy body on the high side of medium. Lively carb. Lemon, guava, toast, and bitter resin rounding out the mid palate. Solid dipa, pretty clean, tighter than the apa for sure.
