Drank at a local liquor store tasting. Pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma is hops, pine, resin, and citrus. Tastes of tropical fruit, citrus, honey, and bread. Medium bodied beer with a moderate amount of carbonation and a sticky mouth feel. Does not end with a harsh bitterness and sweet on the tip of the tongue. Nice beer

Has everyone on RB rated this before me. Ah, that’s okay. Here’s my take on it.
IPA deserves a straight up pint glass, ha ha, hmmmmmm....let’s do this.
The appearance was a slight burnt orange to brown color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light lacing here and there all around and just glazing the glass in a nice adequate fashion.
The smell had a light orange to glazed over tangerine sort of light and somewhat leading apricot to mango citrus wonderful aroma.
The taste was mainly sweet but still had a light decent bitterness that ended up having a slight bitter hoppiness all around.
On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there but still had a slight harshness but was still good for the most part.
Overall, pretty good beer to have again.

Clear amber. Off-white creamy head. Spicy and hoppy nose: pepper, orange, vanilla. Lovely. Moderately bitter, moderately sweet - bit harsh on the bitterness. Lovely, well balanced, but not overwhelming.

Poured from a 22oz into a small goblet with a light foamy head (that quickly dissipated).
Light and mellow citrus aroma with sweet malty backbone. Drinks with medium carbonation and a medium body. Smoothly bittersweet with burnt sugar notes.
Mild bitterness lingers but not much.
I'd come back for another.

This is a great Oregon IPA. Poured out of a 22oz bottle. Great aroma and perfect appearance. Smooth taste with just enough of a piney finish that isn't over powering, though it does last on the palate.
