Draft - Some pine and leafy hops. Clear gold with a nice white head. Caramel and piney bitterness. Simple but decent.

I wouldn’t say the hops are flat, but they are somehow lacking. The flavor is not sharp, not florally. The beer is dry, like licking a cold stone. Weird, okay, never mind.

Part of a flight at the brewery with Dadbra. Got kinda steamed by the end of the flight. Bit of citrus and corn on the nose and flavor. Happy to be done with the flight.

22 oz bought at JCs Thriftway in Newport OR. $4.99. Under the name of McKenzie Brewing. Pours a slightly darker burnt orange than the usual IPA, with a nice sized,creamy,frothy off white head. Woah great aroma to this one! Great wafts of herbal,floral hops with equally appealing honey caramel malts..really like this! Taste is nice too but quite balanced between the honey malts and hops..very pleasant drinking. Good mouth feel its lowish carbonation and smooth on the tongue. Did not think this would amount to much but this is a really nice PNW style IPA

Bottle from the Thriftway in Newport.. Aroma of resin, brown sugar & wheat bread. The lightest of haze in a green tinged amber, quick thin white head. Flavors of pine, lemon, and honey. Good mix in the mouth--a llttle fizz, a little oil. Clean finish. I’ve reviewed many beers where the sum of aroma and taste was higher than the overall, this is first i can think of where the sum is less than overall, the whole greater than the sum of hte parts.

alobar (3558) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 30, 2013
Clear golden orange pour with a soapy white head. Aroma of tropical fruit, caramel, and pine. Tropical fruit flavor with some caramel, pine, and a subtle bitter ending. Very nice beer.

hayduke (4947) - Eureka, California, USA - OCT 16, 2013
This was shared with Strykzone via Facebook Chat. This poured an orange-copper with a big off-white head and lots of lacing. Nose is tropical fruit and citrus, on sweet caramel malt base. Medium in body. The flavor is very fruity, but the citrus holds it own. As we move to the finish the bitterness arrives, but the fruit and malts remain. Very easy to drink and well balanced. A first class West Coast IPA. Labeled MCKenzie Brewing. Steelhead is never mentioned.

Bomber from Hayduke that we had together via facebok chat. This poured with a huge off white head that took a long time to recede. Every pour filled the glass with foam. Thick but fluffy lacing remains throughout. The beer was hazy and coppery. In the nose I got citrus and floral hops and those were tasted. More malt in the flavor along with more fruit. Citrus and tropical. Malts were both pale and caramel with some crackers. Bitterness is moderate. This is generally sweet. It begins with the hops in front but switches midway with the malts moving up. More pale than caramel. The finish was sweet with malts and yeast. This had a classic hop profile but with a little extra. That was also true of the malts. This was tasty stuff.
