Hoppy aroma. Golden coloured hoppy and citrus flavoured with a hint of bitterness in a dry finish.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours clear amber with half decent head. Aroma doesn’t overwelm - mild maltiness and not much on the hop front. Grainy, malty character. Fairly hollow and tasteless, finish doesn’t impress as the hop presence is lacking.

From bottle. No aroma. Mostly corn. Tastes like grain and pilsner. Gross. What a disappointment and waste of money. To call this an IPA is a joke.

Bottle... Poured golden with a smallish white head. Southern Oregon has been hit or miss for me, and this one was a miss. Cracker malts, not so much with a hop profile that I would hop for in a West Coast IPA. A little danky, earthy, grainy.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Golden hued straw, fairly clear, slight haze, large frothy white head, nice lacing, moderate carbonation.   Looks fairly decent.   Pale hop nose, a little dank, some mash like qualities.   Hoppy, some aspects of wet tablecloth and citrus rind.   For whatever reason, part of the flavor reminds me of a stained tablecloth after an IPA festival.   Meh...   Not really floral or with a sweet citrusy aspect.   Tiz okay, certainly an IPA and not a Pale Ale that I think a lot of brewers try to pass off as an IPA.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Lively, fairly smooth, but could use a little malt/citrus/floral sweetness to balance out the slight citrus rind astringency.   Tiz alright.

Bottled sample from cereveza. Nice citrus taste. Could have been a bit pinker or hoppier

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Mild on the nose, comes across as an unfiltered lager, some spicy hops, but not dominant. Clear bright gold, small sticky white head. Pale malt driven, some dry metallic hops in the finish, very mild bodied.

22oz Bottle – Johns Market - Portland, OR
Amber in color, hazy with a thin head. Decent amount of IPA hops in the nose. The Malt flavor was rich the hops where just not outstanding to make this a good IPA. This was a off flavored beer. Needs more fresh and added secondary hops.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A golden blonde IPA with a thick lacing white head. In aroma, light malty and beany aroma with faint hops. In mouth, a rather chalky pils like ale with light solvent notes, oily, a bit off. On tap at Horse Brass Pub, Sept. 4 2010.

seems to be all pale malt but it’s entirely dull and lifeless: hops are much to quiet, malt is transparent, yeast leaves a light touch of uncooked dough... body is medium-thin, somewhat flabby... honestly the hop flavors are so muted it comes across like extremely weak tea. bland would be an understatement.
