3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Poured a golden colour with a two finger creamy white head, good lacing. Nose is extremely hoppy and with a bit of citrus. Medium to light in body, with some interesting floaties in it, almost hazy. Probably a bad bottle, but a drinkable beer, regardless. There are better IPAs out there, and I might have to revisit this on again later.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On draught at 27th Annual Oregon Brewers Festival. Golden color. Aroma is caramel and very bitter grassy hops. Taste is caramel, grass, pine, and some bitter notes. A bitter finish that is more than I tend to like.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dégustée (bouteille) le 30 mai 2013 au Mondial 2013 à Montréal (D5C3KPPPi). Bière blonde tirant sur le rouge. Col mince blanc persistant. Très effervescente, bulles fines. Odeur de pamplemousse. Très douce, assez sucrée, assez amère en finale. Saveur un peu épicée en amorce puis céréales prennent le dessus. Se boit bien, pas trop lourde.

4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Slightly unusual IPA. Pine-centric with slight resiny undertones, but the maltiness has a sweetness to it atypical of the breed. Quite viscous for a lower ABV IPA (6% I believe). B+ -- A- if you consider it gives you an excuse to say "diggidy diggidy diggidy," ala Family Guy (coincidence that there's a woman on the label? I think not).

A golden IPA with a thin white head. In aroma, nice biscuit malt with smooth floral hops, with light citrus notes. In mouth, biscuit malt with citrus notes, honey and floral hops, decent.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Drank from a bottle at the 20th Mondial de la Bière, June 1, 2013. Honey blonde little head. Citrus hoppy aroma, notes of sweet cereal. Cereal fruity taste, a little sour, very bitter hops. It is very pleasant that I would sing, but I suck at it!

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap at Sirens. Hazy golden pour. Tight white head. The aroma is softly fruity and a little bit earthy. Some light orange citrus and a fairly assertive bitterness. Okay. A bit of an English yeast character but it kind of works.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A good AIPA. Hazy, straw-colored orange-gold. Good bomber, earth mother label. Doughy, citric, resinous hops. Frothy mouthfeel. Fruity aroma. Rating from short-term memory without notes. Thanks to Triock for bringing this back from the Pacific Northwest on his latest excursion.
