COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Pale copper in color, but big in body and flavor with a heady hop character. The IPA uses spring water and snow melt from high in the Eagle Cap Wilderness. Terminal Gravity used over 50% Marris Otter pale ale malt imported from the British Isles for a traditional British flavor. It adds several other malts from the Northwest and Europe. TG IPA has over 2 pounds of hops per barrel, finishing with British Fuggles for that classic aroma.

12oz bottle - poured a nice copper color. Immediately the strong malt presence was noticed in the aroma followed shortly by the first taste. This is a very mellow IPA that tastes good from first sip to last.

"Iím gonna have to side with Travis on this one. Probably not the freshest of bottles, but since they didnít date it, they can take the blame. Kinda stale, overall boring ass ipa. More malt driven with lightly fruity and tropical hops, but substandard. Didnít even finish a 12. This was a shot in the dar, and it missed the mark."

Pours out a darkish amber, small foamy head, hops dominate, burying any malt characteristics. Biggest drawback for me was a dull metallic finish, and the flat hops bitterness obliterating any other flavors.

12 ounce glass from Market of Choice in Ashland, pour is dark amber, medium lasting head, somewhat lacking in the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Lee fridge. Pours a copper orange with one finger head. Mild hops in nose; more of a British bitter vs 'regular' IPA- same in initial taste and palate. Good to very good.

Tap. Pint in hermiston Oregon. Hazy copper with some head. Hoppy but sugary, dry but has a unique hop flavor. Maltiness throughout. Decent.

Bottled: unk A: amber and hazy with a finger of light yellow suds. These leave behind a cobweb of lace to a sheet of the same. S: biscuity malts with a overlay of subtle tropical fruits almost reminds me of pineapple gummi bears. Again, subtle. T: Bitter with malts. The hops are bitter, but do not offer a substantial amount of flavors beyond this. Standard hints of resin and citrus (grapefruit) M: Medium bodied (on heavy) with moderately hi carb. A bit much for the style. O: This beer is quite nice on tap, I fear this is a case of an old bottle, too bad I canít be sure... Serving type: bottle 12-09-2011

Clear copper pour with medium white head, nice lacing down the glass. Scent is both piney and grapefruity hops and bready malts.. Nice biscuty bready malt up front with great hop flavor in the back. Body is a little sticky with a bitter finish. One of the best IPAís Ive had.

Bad_Goat (2) - springfield, Oregon, USA - NOV 22, 2013 does not count
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.

Danyel (882) - Colorado, USA - OCT 21, 2013
Bottle. Pours orange with fastly disappearing white head. Smells very yeasty for an IPA and almost sour...has a very odd smell to being itís an IPA. Has lots of caramel notes, definitely has a bready taste to it. Bitter but not very flavorful hop characteristics...just bitterness. Medium bodies, a bit flat, oily feel. Not very good, the only good part is the bitterness that it leaves in your mouth, other than that...the flavors just arenít quite there. Would not buy again.
