12 oz bottle: Just a sip right out of the bottle: need to retaste this to really rank it, but wanted it in my database. Nice hop profile iwth citrus, spruce and herbal notes present. Smooth drinking and finish. Would LOVE to drink this more.

PorterPounder (6904) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2012
Savannah, Ga - Habersham Beverage Warehouse - 12 oz bottle. Dark copper pour, medium thick off-white head that leaves a bit of lacing. Aroma has some patented resiny spruce notes, floral notes in the back end. Flavor is solid IPA with plenty of citrus grapefruit bittersweet notes, some maple syrup notes. Mouthfeel is thick and sticky. Solid west coast IPA - liking what I see from this brewer.

Reid (2215) - Salem, Oregon, USA - NOV 25, 2012
12 oz single from Roth’s Sunnyslope Market in Salem. $1.39 Pours a slightly darker burnt orange then usual, with a large rocky dirty white head, that fades fast and leaves large amounts of lace down the glass. Slightly resinous hop aromas, with a good doze of caramel from the malts. A nicely balanced IPA in taste. Sure the hops are there but they are equaled by a strong caramel malt. Nice strong mouthfeel to this one. Overall a nice IPA and very drinkable.
