COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A new year-round beer. With a darker golden color and some of the most popular citrusy IPA hops, as well as Sterling for a bit of spiciness in the finish, this IPA is hoppy like a Northwest IPA should be. Five different hops and a soft malt backing make for one great, easy-drinking ale.

IPA’s are starting to grow on me, after nearly two years of living in the Pacific NW. This beer is good enough to reinforce that appreciation.

Dark and broding. This is a hopped up beer with dark volume and a real complexity.

rosenbergh (8283) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 6, 2015
22 oz bottle. From a gas station in Lincoln City, OR. Clear amber colour with a small frothy off-white head. Sweet fruity aroma with some bitterness and malty sweetness. The flavour is harsh hoppiness, sweetness and bitterness. Not the best IPA Portland (as a city) can offer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber from Walmart. Dark amber in color. Some is somewhat hoppy with a bit of a sour scent to it. Bready hop flavors up front. Some maltiness and grapefruit peel as well. Drinkable IPA, nothing more.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2015 While a better than average beer, this one falls short in the face of stiff competition from the incredible IPAs which hail from the Northwest. Nothing stands out, it's not a particularly pretty beer to pour, the aroma lacking, and for me, nothing notable as far as flavor. Drinkable, but with so many other great IPAs from Oregon, this one is not worth a second date. #GoDutch Update: the second glass I noticed some floral, rose undertones, which given the hometown of the brewer, deserves some props. #RoseCity

Pours a thin head on a clear straw body. The aroma is mild grain with some honey. The taste is mild pine bitter with some honey sweet. The texture is crisp. It’s not bad, just not too interesting.

fiulijn (16175) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 8, 2014
Bottle from Haggen Grocery
Hazy amber color with small head. Caramel brew, with mellow aroma, and dryish mouthfeel, strong bitterness, but it also has some vegetable components, and only light fruity and resiny touch; light puke smell too.
Unimpressive.

Ferris (7014) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2014
Bottle - A little cardboard and woody hops and caramel. Clear copper with a decent white frothy head. Woody, bitter and caramel. Just OK.

mcberko (8695) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 10, 2014
22 oz. bottle, pours a clear dark golden orange with a small off-white head. Nose brings out piney and resinous hops, and biscuity caramel malt. Flavour brings out resinous hops, some medicinal notes, and caramel malt. Balanced enough, but not the most pleasant flavours. Something is off here. Not very good.

Bottle, a 22oz from a mixed pack at Costco. The first shout-out is value, this is a helluva IPA on a budget. Not a world beater, but a decent IPA. Copper color with good clarity, topped with a finger of creamy khaki head. Lots of lacing. Nose is floral and caramel malt, same in the taste. Some herbals and lingering citrus. No complaints at this price point.

The best part of this beer is it’s reasonable cost. At $1.99 for a 22 oz. bottle at my local Bi-Mart, this IPA can be the value beer for you to start out your evening after work. Pours a dark, hazy bronze with a full creamy head. Taste a little bitter with a lingering after taste. Certainly not the best IPA you’ll ever have but, again, it’s a $1.99.
