3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
On Tap at the brewpub, in Pendleton, OR. Hazy deep orange amber with a very nice lasting creamy white head. Big fresh citrus aroma, flavor is hoppy and grassy with some fumy notes of cleaner or furniture polish. Not much, but ts there. The bitterness fades quickly and the finish is pretty quick and dry.

Growler from the brewpub. Light bitterness with a funky malty sweetness in the background. Citrus and a hint of pine. Bitterness gets stronger at the finish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Horse Brass blind IPA tasting. This one was in the middle of the pack for me. Lots of citrus, caramel and toasty malt. The malt brings some sweetness but not overwhelming. Clean and good.

Had this at the Horse Brass blind IPA tasting, Portland, OR - Very dark, not what I’d expect on an IPA taster. Watermelon candy nose. As weird as it sounds it’s totally pleasant. Mellow melon in the mouth is then followed by banana esters and some malty sugars. Genuinely different and a bit odd. I like it.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
So cloudy I thought it might be a hefeweizen, though a little ruddier than the average hef, modest head. The aroma is muddles between the sweet and hops, apples and malt syrup. Chewy palate, which is not usual for IPAs. Hops come through in the flavor, with the stronger presence of sweetness lighter than caramel and yeast. balanced finish.
