COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Clean, crisp and refreshing. A tribute to our friends at Indie Hops, this amazingly balanced beer is bursting with the finest hops Oregon has to offer: Nugget, Centennial, Meridian, Crystal and Horizon. Renowned for his IPAs, Chad just raised the bar.

This is a subdued west-coast IPA. It is plenty floral and hoppy, but not overly aggressive as many have come to expect from this style. It is enjoyable.

Can: Clear light golden pour with a finger of creamy off-white head. Lots of sticky lacing throughout. Fresh aroma, citrus and lightly floral. Semi-sweet. Good hop flavors, more citrus and some tropical fruit. Nice mild malty backbone. Balance is good, bitterness is moderate, but flavorful. This is nicely done.

CapFlu (4618) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 17, 2014
Thin white foamy head atop a light orange body. Nose of pine cones. Flavour of resiny hop cones with undertones of perfume. Very tasty. Purchased at Penny Farthing in Oak Bay.

andrewje41 (676) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - DEC 1, 2014
12 oz can. 6 pack of them enjoyed over a couple days to be exact. Pours a clear golden color with a patchy fizz head. Mellow hops and grainy aroma. Just a delicious IPA. Really easy to drink a 6 pack of this. Nice hoppy finish. Great stuff.

Danyel (1087) - Colorado, USA - NOV 4, 2014
Can. Pours clear orange with white head. Aroma is fresh grain, cereal, wheat, caramel. Taste is very mellow, malty, thin, not very hoppy, simple. Overall, not very good.

Very nice IPA. Big citrus and pine on the nose. Nice balance and by no means is this a Hop bomb of an IPA. Subtle, but creamy mouthfeel and nice bitterness in the finish.

22415brewery (378) - redmond, Washington, USA - SEP 23, 2014
CAN. Pours a burnished golden with amber mid-tones, average head, good lacing. There’s a very complex hop aroma profile that borders between slightly medicinal, herbal, dank, yet also shows some berry, citrus, a little bit of minty woodiness, and peach-like stone fruit. There’s a golden malty aroma as well, just slightly doughy. It’s got a bright flavor, mid-palate malt sweetness, and smooth end-palate bittering. Finishes dry and leaves a malt-ester aftertaste more than that of the hops. Very good beer.

Salmoniform (1013) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - SEP 21, 2014
Poured from can to glass. Golden hue with fizzy white head that dissipated to a thick ring. Decent lacing. Aroma is mango, orange peel, grapefruit, faint pine, grassy. Mouthfeel is nice with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet initially followed by a strong hop bitterness that dominates through the finish. Overall this is a decent IPA.

bpreo (1782) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - SEP 17, 2014
Strong hop aroma and subtle hop flavor. High alcohol content yet weak tasting. This beer has some identity problems.

liquidhedonism (185) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - SEP 14, 2014
22 oz bottle from Fred Meyer’s in Beaverton, OR. Crystal clear pour. Aroma is sweet, floral, piney, resinous, and a bit fruity, with hints of caramel and grass. Amazing! Perfect crisp mouthfeel with a gentle and balanced bitter bite in the finish. Perfectly sweet and bitter from start to finish. One of the best non-Imperial IPA on the market, IMO. Damn, these guys can brew.
