4.5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle from my friend Jim. Thanks, Jim. Pours yellow orange with a beautiful one finger foamy head. A lot of bubbles coming up through the beer. Lots of retention and lacing. The aroma is incredibly intense. Unbelievable. Makes me wonder what I have been drinking all these years that called itself and IPA. I get some pine (Simcoe?) and citrus on the nose. Slight floral accent is there, too. The wonderful thing about this beer is it does not taste like so many hop bombs I have had lateley. I would describe the bitterness as medium and just toward the low end for the style. Finish is long and smooth. No harshness, just lingering bitterness. A pleasantly light sweetness balances the bitterness perfectly. The texture of the beer is creamy like the head. Medium body and mouthfeel is lightly tingly. Unlike some beers this beer does not improve as it warms. It is best drank in the first 25 minutes. Overall, a terrific beer. I intended to knock this beer down, because I am sick of all the hype surrounding the brewery. I came away from this beer with incredible respect.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle at the 7th Tasting in Belgrade-Serbia, surprise surprise from luttonm after begging him for this one. Matt brought us a very fresh bottle, bottled on 02282015 just less 35 days old. Anyway...pours a bright hazy golden color, medium and lasting white cap. Nose: indian spices, orange peel (close to the Pliny the E.), lime-tangerine, a hint of amber malts. Mouth: balanced bitterness (a great execution), medium body, malty with a bit of a ham accent. Balanced!

Draught at Apex, Portland
Hazy golden color, compact head. It has the lean pale malt backbone required to support a good hopping, with plenty of citrus fruits and a chamomile touch. Fresh.
Excellent modern IPA.
