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.

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.

2.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.
