2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
22 oz bottle bought from "Roths Vista Market" in Salem.
Bad news (usually) this pours horrible with a huge head..waiting,waiting,waiting for it to subside.OK now its a slightly hazy orange beer..the huge head is off white.
Aroma mainly floral hop with a a goodish caramel malt backing.
Taste again floral..with weak caramel malts slightly spicy,yeasty..almost a Belgian tinge to this..i expect this beer is old and possible infected..it was not in the refrigerated area.
Palate is fine..low carbonation but this might be because it is old.
What to say?
THis beer is infected but luckily its tasting like a Belgian Ale and im still going to drink it.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bomber from Hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Orange golden with a big off white head. The bottle gushed some after opening. Fruit dominates both the flavor and aroma. It is generally tropical but also some citrus. It is quite bitter. Perhaps some orange zest adds to the bitterness. I say "perhaps" because I was not sure of it. This was a nice beer but it seemed to lack hop flavors. And malts were not really noticed in the flavor profile at all. I do like this beer but it seemed to come up just a little short.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This was shared with Strykzone on Facebook Chat. From a 22 oz bottle this poured a hazy gold with a huge, and I mean very pillow like white head that looks like whipped cream. Nose of floral hops and a little tropical fruit. Body is medium and the mouth feel is bitter. The flavor is a bit unusual with bitterness dominating. As it warms it become a little more fruity, but generally bitterness reigns. The finish is dry and an orange zest bitter. My feelings about the beer would come and go with each sip. Overall satisfactory though I would rather is was in better balance between the bittering hops and the flavoring hops.

The label looks a little different now, more like an nice bottle of wine or something.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
22oz bottle picked up at John’s market. Pours out a dirty gold topped with a tall fluffy sand head. Nose is pine grass hops and lots of malts. Taste is lacking hops but has lots of malt. This was a pretty not so good ipa.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bomber from Belmont Station. Pours hazy gold with a foamy white head. Aroma seems dusty floral. Med body. Flavor is a bit odd. Touch of cooked treacle. Otherwise arguably floral hop. It is bitter. Just that unusual flavor. Maybe some odd floral flavor I can’t recognize. Not a fan.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Somewhat of a sweaty and piney IPA. Decent bitterness follows. Becomes a bit citrusy. Starts out whacky, comes back with a bit of citrusy sweetness, bitterness, and a bit of that powdery sugar like dryness that is like Danish IPAs. Sweeter example, but decent.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy dark golden color with a moderate white head on it. Nose is very slightly floral, but has almost no smell to it at all. Taste seems light and fresh, but again doesn’t have all that much substance to it. Not much to this beer.

I try to share the love on Oregon beers, and most earn it. This beer stinks. It was so bad I wondered if I had gotten a skunky, flat beer, but it poured well and had a decent head. It just sucked. I’m not sure how a brewer who lives in Oregon could brew this and say, "yeah, this is our IPA!"
