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.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at the brewery. Slightly hazy golden orange color. Texture is fizzy and crisp, with a medium-to-light body. Flavor is sharp, piney, sweet, lightly soapy, while a little tinny and metallic in the finish. Semi-sweet aromas of pine needles and sharp woody hop notes. Slightly grassy, but in a bad way, actually.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
This draft brew from the brewery in Eugene poured a head of finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly diminishing and left behind a hazy uncarbonated dark orange colored body. The mild aroma was hoppy and malty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The weak flavor contained notes of hops and mild astringency. A poor ipa that I would not buy again.
