COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Terminal Gravity IPA is a copper to honey colored ale with a rich malt character and a clean bitter hop finish. This full bodied beer uses malts from Scotland, Belgium and the Pacific Northwest to achieve a slightly nutty lightly toasted taste. Yeast esters provide hints of stone fruits like apricot and peach, while hops from Yakima and Eastern Europe provide grapefruit and spicy notes.

If i could only drink one IPA ever again, it would be this one. Itís always better when i can find it on tap, but itís pretty good in the bottle too. It has great malt complexity, and still maintains a strong hop profile.

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.

Since moving to the PacNW in 2001, Iíve become a lover of all beer local (N.Cali included). Iíve tried well over 100 IPAs from across the U.S. and to my opinion, TG IPA is tops, though Lagunitas Maximus IPA rateas a solid second. TGís IPA is a tantalizing copper, orange whose murkiness entices the drinker as bieing a crsip hop-fest in waiting. THe combination of malts make this IPS smooth, after the hard hop hit, finishing clean but full.

A near perfect IPA. A bright, brilliant orange tone with a slightly cloudy, unfiltered NW look. The Aroma reminds me of a breakfast of citrus fruit on a Pacific NW beach. The taste is brilliant... subtle beginning with a strong and warm bitter/salty/citrus finish. Very complex tastes that leave you admiring and analyzing the beer for hours and days. Great balance on the palate, a nice medium body with perfect texture and a nice long finish. I really love this IPA, which is certainly best on draft.

This IPA smells just like dogfishhead 90 minute. A good strong caramel hop flavor, with a nice hop finish, but none of the hops are the bittering killers, so it has a quite nice flavor.

On tap at the Oregon Brewers Fest. Itíll be there again this year in í08, so looking forward to sampling this very hoppy IPA again soon. Very impressed with the taste, a bit grapefruity, definitely bitter and again very HOPPY. If in Oregon, a must-try brew. Loved it so much, got the tee-shirt while in Portland. My favorite tee!

When you ask an Oregonian what is the perfect IPA, Terminal Gravity leaps immediately to mind. Huge hops that are totally in harmony with the beer. Great tasting beer, that stands out in a world of hoppy Pacific NW beers.

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.

Had this on tap at a couple of different pubs in Portland. It had a hazy color with a bit of a head. Very strong grapefruit aroma - Yum. This is really a great example of what Iíve come to expect with respect to NW IPAís.
