Tap at Eugene Emeralds baseball game. Hazy copper colored pour, small white head. Aroma of citrus fruit and some light floral with some biscuit malt. Flavor was fruity, orange and light floral and biscuit as well. Kind of a run of the mill IPA but not bad on the cheap at a baseball game.

Irvine, CA, location: straightforward and rather normal - not boring; low carbonation aids smoothness and the overall flavor, which is about identical to the aftertaste, is interesting - semisweet, somewhat buttery, but dry like toast, with some sweet and bitter citrus notes; it is overall nicely done and the growler that it was in really kicks ass! I like it. It’s good.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A golden IPA with a thin white head. Good plentiful c-hops, with resinous notes, pungent and classy. In mouth, a classic California IPA with loads of C-hops, grapefruit, piney character, oily mouthfeel. A good classic example. On tap at brewpub, Jan. 17 2009.

Tap at Oregon brewpub.
Pours thin with a small head that has ’’mold spots.’’ Aroma is a nice, strong, orangey grapefruit. Flavor is uninspired, paint-by-the-numbers bitter grapefruit. Average mouthfeel. Just sits there, like a kid bored at the opera.

Bottle: Poured a coppery amber color with a off white head. The aroma was hoppy and some citrus to it. The taste was a lovely hoppy tange, this was a nice beer throught with just enough mildness to balance out.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Steelhead BC, Eugene, OR. Off-white small head that mostly diminished, next to no lacing, no carbonation observed, slightly hazy, and a gold hue. Nose was hoppy, citrus and some pine notes. Flavor was malt, hoppy and citrus. Smooth mouthfeel and light-medium body. Quaffable, decent brew for the style. Worthy of a try!
