A: The pour is a slightly hazy golden amber color with a white head and some nice lacing.
S: A really good citrus hop aroma to the nose to start things off. Plenty of tropical fruit notes, particularly pineapples, too. Pretty straightforward, but really nice.
T: The hop flavor is really big and juicy with a fair amount of citrus/grapefruit and lots of pineapple. There’s a bit of a caramel flavor as well as some mild breadiness that weren’t really noticeable on the nose.
M: The body is medium with a moderate carbonation.
D: A surprisingly solid IPA. I really quite liked this beer and would definitely not have a problem ordering it if I find myself at Steelhead again.

On tap at Eugene Brewery. Pours hazy honey gold with a minimal white head. Aroma is dusty and earthy with some sugar and grapefruit. Bitter citrus peel, peppery hop and some malt in the taste. Standard IPA, nothing too exciting.

On tap at Venti’s in Salem OR.
Nice enough looking beer, typical orange/brown with a small off white head.
Good oiney,lemony aromas, very fresh.
Great refreshing taste of floral hops mixed with lemon zest, seems to have a nice malt backbone also.
Nice enough on the palate, went down well anyway.
