This beer is a suprise! I was bored with the beer selection at the pub I used to go to. I confessed my fustration to the bar keeper. When she poured me a sample of this new IPA that just arrived. She called it "the twig". Appearantly, they call it this because the tapper is in fact a plastic tree branch. Making it look very different from all the other tappers! It was very different indeed! Tasty and delicious. A very nice find. Highly recommended!

what a wonderful beer. Has a great bold flavor that is different from most other IPA's. Once you have a pint of Gravity you won't mistake it for anything else.

good, getting to be fairly typical west coast IPA. Nice hops, as usual, but maybe missing out on a little maltiness.

An interesting cloudy brown color, a full grapefruity nose a juicy cascade body and a mildly bitter finish.

With buck_dich at horse brass when I had this one. Nice amber pour. Citrus hop aromas. Nice and bitter flavors. Great IPA.

Crisp & clean like an IPA should be. But has a flavor & scents that are more aromatic & flavorful than your usual IPA. Head is nice & dense & body is golden.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2004 Had a pitcher of this at the horse brass pub in Portland. Dark amber color, looks like lots of specialty malt went into this, not your typical IPA. Aroma is subtle but hoppy, more british that PNWern. Flavor is full of bittering hops but doesn't quite have the level of floral hops that I like in an IPA.

4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 20/20
HOLY SHIT this is an awesome IPA!! Cloudy muddy yellow in the glass. A VERY strong grapefruit like hop aroma - you can smell it from arms length. Surprisingly, a perfectly balanced hop flavor - very biased towards the bitter citrusy side of hoppiness. Hop flavors are nicely balanced out with a nice malt toastiness. Hands down the best IPA of our beer trip to Oregon and Northern CA. (followed by the Lost Coast Indica IPA). May be on my top 5 list of best beers I've ever tried.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2004 Oregon Brewers Fest '03. Lot's of hops to this one with a long bitter finish.
Tried on tap at the Heathman (7/04). This is a nice well balanced IPA. With a good kick to the finish. Excellent stuff.

This IPA has tons of fruity hops thoughout the taste. Great body on this one. Pretty good hop aroma.
