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.

69 IBU. Not bad. Not great. Poured from a 12oz can into a frozen pint glass. golden color, very transparent. very little head. Slightly hopy but no real lasting maltiness or bitterness. Not a bad IPA. But definitely doesn’t stand out either.

On tap at sunriver. Pours a clear orange color with a medium white head. A light fruity nose. Toast, citrus, mild oranges. Very light. No bitterness and only light tea like malts. Drinkable.

Hoppy, but very smooth. One of my favorite IPAs. I’m not sophisticated enough to use all or any of the usual terms.

pours unclear light golden with a small creamy white head, reviving and leaving nice lacing. piney and minty-floral citrus, melons, powdery candies, faint fruitiness - clementines and peaches; spicy and slightly biscuity-doughy maltiness - touch of toasted caramel, some spices - dill, bit of earthy notes. light carbonation, light to medium body - oily; balanced grassy-spicy-citrusy finish. nicely done - though an average ipa.

Orangish brown, with white head. Aromo is oranges and more oranges. Taste is even more orange with grapefruit peel. unexpected delight!

It is what it is. Solid if somewhat plain traditional American IPA. Nicely grassy and such.

Can (12 oz) bought @ Winooski Beverage Warehouse.

Appearance: Clear golden with a medium white head and some lacing.

Aroma: Floral hops and biscuity malts along resinous notes and mild herbal presence.

Taste: Floral, light sweetness. decent malt backbone, biscuit notes and light bitterness.

Palate: Medium body. Moderate carbonation. Slightly oily mouthfeel. Moderately dry finish. Floral aftertaste that doesn’t last very long.

Overall: Decent clean IPA that was easily drinkable, but that will be as easy to forget. Good balance, but nothing really stands out.

Can. Not bad, but not worthy either. Typical nondescript IPA. Some citrus notes, pine. Slight bitterness up front and in the finish.

From Fred Meyer. Golden with hints of orange. Nicely skunky hop nose. Good clean hoppy flavors. Well balanced with a nice hoppy backbone.

penstemon (190) - Nevada, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Pours golden-orange with an off-white head. Aroma is pine, orangey citrus, toast, a bit of pineapple, and some tropical fruit and peach as it opens up. Taste is mandarin, grapefruit, pineapple, leafy, toast, marmalade, caramel, and light-med bitterness. Medium body, finishes fairly dry. Nice IPA.
