2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cloidy orange with foamy white head. Nose is wierd...sour. palate is full- bodied and hoppy. Flavor is not good. Very bitter grapefruit and that sour smell again. This beer tastes off.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Tugboat. Pours a cloudy copper color with a small white head. A sweet hoppy nose, very light. The flavor is very odd; initial fruity and biscuit, then a huge finish of bitter grapefruit. It burns the palate, I can’t say much else. Very odd, medicinal. Perhaps no late kettle additions? Something is amiss. I tried in vain to question the server who said people come from all around for this beer. I hope that is not correct.

On tap at the tugboat location. Pours a beautiful hazy orange with a nice frothy head. the taste, however, is of plastic and stale hops. not a beer that i am a fan of. goes down nicely though, but the plastic....

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: MAY 26, 2012 Tap at their brewpub... came out an unfiltered honey hue with a thin white head that dissipate to nothing on the surface. I enjoy the hazy look in an IPA sometimes. Aroma was too yeasty with some hoppy notes, I couldn’t get too good of a sniff though because of the smoking there. Really dry palate which accentuated the hops with other flavors of pine/grass and grainy yeast. A dry hop finish with a touch of malt.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Nice orange, but a bit cloudy. Taste is pretty typical....not as hoppy as other IPA in the area, but good....more grassy than citrus. Average.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This was the first brewpub I visited on my trip to Portland last October, but I forgot to submit the rating. The smell is very distincly citrus, almost lemon drop. The appearance was cloudy orange, almost like a wheat beer, but was a little hard to tell since it’s so damn dark in this place. Decent head and lacing. I didn’t think this was too bitter. However, I don’t think I could drink this for hours, even though I could hang out here for hours.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
A disappointing bit of butterbomb. Nice grassy hop aroma fragrant and floral, but the flavor is infected again, nasty muddled earthy butter flavors.
