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.

Draft. Worthy Brewery. COD tasting night - Dale Crawford. By far the best beer in the brewery. This is good stuff, good IPA...comparable with any Central Oregon IPAs, and that is saying something coming from Bend Oregon, the beer mecca of the NW. I highly recommend it. to anyone who is passing through Bend.

colui72 (621) - HONG KONG - JUL 4, 2016
Pours hazy orange, without head and no lacing. Aroma is malts, pine and citrus. Taste has a malty character, with a good fruit balance (grapefruit, mango), resin and a hoppy finish. Tasty and medium bodied. Very enjoyable IPA, more British than West Coast style.

teamsale (137) - Washington, USA - JUN 25, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear gold with a thin off-white head and good lacing. Smells of pine and olives. Tastes clean and crisp with flavors of citrus. Lingering bitterness but not overwhelming. Decent aftertaste. Well balanced.

hayduke (4629) - Eureka, California, USA - JUN 20, 2016
Shared with Strykzoen on Facebook Chat. Poured amber with a white head and thick lacing. Nose is caramel malts, citrus, tropical fruit, and some melon; with a nice complex fruity flavor. Medium body and a smooth mouth feel. . The finish is a citrus zest bitter. Very easy drinking. Simply excellent.

Strykzone (6561) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 20, 2016
12 ounce can from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. A big off white head leaves a layer of thick lace. The beer is cloudy honey golden. A well balanced aroma with pale malts and complex fruits. The flavor is also balanced but fruit leads by a nose. Tropical and citrus flavors. Something like applesauce, oranges, tangerines, and somehow a Saison feel to it but generally a classic west coast IPA. Very easy to drink but it might not be very fresh.

vadie (1225) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 23, 2016
Jaune brillante avec un petit col blanc. L’arôme du pin. En bouche c’est une bonne IPA résineux et bien équilibré, mais assez standard pour le région.

Golden color, compact head. Moderate strength, good balance, some malt and caramel flavor, and strong resiny hopping.

Leighton (18082) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 28, 2016
Can at JFK while waiting to depart. Pours rich orange-gold with a frothy, white head. The nose has lots of juicy, ripe citrus fruits, mango, melon, some gooey pine. Medium sweet flavour with a good, sturdy malt foundation, more gooey pine, mild earthy bitterness, ripe citrus, tropical fruits. Medium bodied with average carbonation, and rather smooth texture. Nicely resinous on the finish, with notes of lightly toasted malts, bread, melon, orange rind, mango. A good, sturdy all-around IPA. Solid work.

vidmidia (281) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - FEB 12, 2016
Cor de mel, ligeiramente turva. Espuma abundante e persistente. Aroma cítrico e amadeirado. Sabor equilibrado, adocicado de início e amargo no final, com notas cítricas de tangerina, resinosas, e um leve toque de menta. Retrogosto amargo com final maltado.

Reimer96 (1743) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 3, 2016
Wasn’t a big fan of this ipa... Big malt base up front and throughout with some hops to balance. Hops are earthy, piney and just not enough to completely balance the big malt base... Wouldn’t bother with this one again.

Perfect pour by the esteemed Steve at Beer Revo. A malty IPA with a decent bite. Has that old bottle taste yet it’s freshly tapped. A recent reviewer had this in his deScription, and I quote: "cream in mouth". Now thats never happened to me so I’ll take his word on that one but who knows what road this night will go down. Toasted malts, gf, very dry, straw, middling spiciness. Decent but I am second guessing the choice. Should have just got more Lagunitas as the tap list is weak sauce.
