This smooth looking beer is aggressively bittered and hopped with the finest hops from the Willamette Valley. This big hop character is supported by equally impressive malt body. IPA is not for the faint of heart. All our hops are purchased directly fro Wolf Family Farms, a fifth generation grower.

Can at home. Pours a clear copper/amber with two fingers of foamy off white head. Aroma is malty and hoppy with some floral and some pine. Some alcohol on the nose also. Flavor follows with mild bitterness. Overall, a very drinkable and nice IPA.

Can poured a clear amber with a small lingering amber head. Aromas of caramel, earthiness, cocoa and light orange zest. Palate was light bodied and crisp with a dry finish. Flavors of caramel, earthiness and light citrus with a crisp dry lingering bitter finish.

A clear amber beer with a small white head. The aroma is earthy, lemon, and pine. The flavor is citrus peel and hay, quite bitter.

Poured from a can. Not sure why this is called an IPA. Overly malt taste; more of a brown ale. Little hop taste. Missnamed.

A mediocre IPA. Pours a nice hazy peach color. Aromas of citrus at first.. But then fades to almost nothing. Aroma is just kind of bitter hops... Pretty boring.

TXBadger (1968) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 21, 2014
An average tasting IPA, it has some nice pine and citrus notes on the palate, but the finish has just a little too much bread and malty flavors for me as an IPA.

A pretty mediocre IPA. Mild and unremarkable. A little bit on the grassy hay side of hop character. Tried at a Thunderhead tasting.

UPDATED: JUN 14, 2014 I love this IPAís name and the artwork on the can. I wish I could say that I loved this ale as much as its temporary home. Donít get me wrong, I like this beer. Itís got solid taste and the technical elements are all there. Itís just not that different from the other options in this vast style. All that said, I wouldnít object to having this beer, again.
