Thereís nothing particularly wrong with this IPA; itís balanced and easy to drink, but itís just generic and not especially flavorful. Lightly sweet malt with a standard pale ale, cereal flavor are joined by floral, grassy hops with light-medium bitterness. The body is slightly hazy and golden in color with several steady streams of carbonation rising through the beer and the white head pours to about an inch before settling to a persistent, creamy, eighth-inch layer, leaving a wide ring of lacing on the glass. Overall, itís not bad, but it tastes like a generic brewpub beer, and itís absolutely not going to be memorable.

Pours hazy, feels thick. Pretty light hop taste for an IPA. Got it on mega sale for $1.88. Wonít get it again.

blipp (5679) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - OCT 20, 2013
Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Sweet malts, diacetyl, and light fruity hops. Not good.

CaseyBartlett (7) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - AUG 3, 2013 does not count
Tastes kind of like a cross between a kolsch and an IPA. Very drinkable, but not your typical IPA.

Beergeek23322 (2024) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - JUL 17, 2013
October 2011. 22 oz. bottle bought at Albertsonís. A bit of a disappointment with this one knowing some of the best IPAís out there are from this area. Caramel, pine, hops and citrus aromas are there, but all very muted and bland. Itís drinkable, but so many better choices out there.

JStax (2601) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - APR 27, 2013
Poured from a big can thanks to 5000. Pours a semi hazy copper with a fluffy white head of foam. Aroma is cotton candy and spruce. Tastes fairly bitter, bit maintains a nice balance.

jgb9348 (4490) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - APR 14, 2013
Slightly hazy golden coloured body with a one centimtere tall white head. Aroma of pale malt, light hops and a hint of alcohol and sugar - not much going on at all and hardly any hops. Light-bodied; Mild grassy and soapy hops with a pellet taste and a bit of herbal flavour and no malt at all to speak of. Aftertaste has just about nothing but soap and the slightest bit of grassiness and no hops at all. Overall, a pretty bad beer and eventhough I just wanted to try the brewery, this one was pretty bad. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Made in Oregon earlier today on 13-April-2013 for US$4.95 sampled later in the day in my hotel room here in Portland.

Shink (177) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 16, 2012
Out of the bottle from Uptown. Pours a clear golden color with a full white head. Smell and taste is only slightly hoppy. However, the beer is full and balanced. I donít know if this is truly an IPA, but it is a great beer.

This was decent. Itís hoppy but not really bitter. Almost a tad stale. Still a pretty tasty beer. A better body than finish.
