Terminal Gravity Über Östën #1
Sample at the 29th Annual Oregon Brewers Festival on 07/30/2016. Cloudy yellow-gold color with a medium thin white head that evaporates quickly to a film. Short strings of lace. Aroma of tart fruit, yeast and malt. Light-bodied with flavors of tart citrus, floral yeast and malt. The finish is tart with a lemony aftertaste. Above average overall.

Terminal Gravity IPA
355ml bottle. Pours a hazy copper with a small, creamy, long lasting, off-white head that laces nicely. Sweet aroma of peach, apricot, caramel malt and bread. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, toasted malt, grapefruit, grass, spice and pine with a dry, bitter, resiny finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Very malty ipa, unbalanced and kind of weird but still ok.

Terminal Gravity Über Östën #1
Tried it at the Oregon Brewers’ Fest yesterday, and liked it enough to pour it today. There was no "#1" in the name, but it appears to have been the same beer. I made my selections based on low fg - or terminal gravity - looking for the least sweet beers, and this measured 0.9. With its fairly low alcohol, I expected it to taste drier, but it was well balanced. Nicely tart and lightly sour, I got away with recommending it to people who wrinkled their noses when I described it as sour. It changed a lot of minds this afternoon. My experiences with sours have all been with Belgians, but I now know I want to pay attention to Berliner Weisses.

Terminal Gravity Eagle Cap IPA
12 oz single purchased from Lifesource in Salem, Oregon. $1.79 Pours a clear gold colour with a medium sized thick and frothy off white head. Oh my..aroma not great..creamed corn, cardboard little leafy hop maybe. Taste dull, again corn then we get some hopiness..a herbal hops, malts getting nutty. Overall strange. Mouth feel is just fine..low carbonation but smooth enough. This is an odd beer..its like an old style micro blonde ale. Its not bad per say just not my idea of an IPA in 2006 let alone 2016.

Terminal Gravity Tap Out
Bottle from World Beer Market (Sake no Taniguchi). Malty, big fat fruity nose, with overripe peaches, maybe some woodiness, too. Copper/orange color, fairly thin head. Thick, syrupy fruit, dates, oranges, some wine or light brandy, a bit phenolic in mid and final. Meaium-heavy body, some alc presence on tongue. Hot aroma, boozy and fruity. A bit much, really, like a fortified fruit beer.

Grunt fill from Winco. Pours out a nice silky texture with tight creamy head. Aroma and taste within the spectrum for the NW version of the style. Nothing exceptional, but not too shabby either.

Draft at the Front Door... Pours slightly cloudy straw golden.. short-lived white head.. lemony and refreshing.. wheat is present and helps dry it out and accentuate the lemony lacto notes.. Very drinkable and never too sour or heavy.

Terminal Gravity IPA
Bottle. Aroma is green olive and citrus. Taste is heavy malt but still delicious. Really, really heavy malt. Bitterness is just right though. Exceptionally unbalanced, yet there is something about the flavor that is drawing me in. Enjoyable and weird.

Terminal Gravity IPA
Bottle A: Dark red - mostly opaque. Thin drifting off white head. Lacing. N: Toasted malt, pine, grapefruit, biscuit, some bark, damp autumn leaves, onion, burnt brown sugar, and peppercorn. T: Quite bitter, lightly burnt, lightly sweet. M: Medium body, very prickly carbonation, light alcohol burn. O: Throwback IPA. Dry with a big malt bite and the ’characteristic’ lack of intense dry hopping. Still, quite nice.

Terminal Gravity Cross-eyed Cricket IPA
On tap at April Brews Day, pours a clear copper gold with a small white head. Aroma is fairly restrained, with notes of piney hops and fruitiness. Flavour is very weak, with piney hops and biscuity malt in decent harmony. Clean and drinkable, but really weak for an IPA. Meh.

Terminal Gravity Pale Ale
Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a super hazy orange color with a one finger head of off white foam. The head has a good level of retention maintaining strength for a long time before fading away to leave tons of thick foam on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma of the brew is massive of a bready and yeasty smell, taking on a drier bready aroma. Along with these strong aromas comes a little bit of a light herbal smell as well. Taste – The taste begins with a very bready taste mixed with a strong yeastiness as would have been anticipated from the nose. These tastes create the base flavor of the brew and are the dominant flavors throughout. There is a bit of lemon citrus upfront which fades a bit as the taste advances being replaced by some grapefruit and herbal hop tastes. A little bit of grassiness comes at the very end, leaving one with a lightly hopped but thick bready taste to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is super thick and chewy for a brew for a pale with a carbonation level that is rather low. The chewy body was actually kind of good for the big yeasty bread tastes of the brew. Overall – A very thick and bready pale ale with a lighter overall hop hit. Not a bad brew overall, although a little more hop and a tad less thickness may have better suited the style

Terminal Gravity IPA
From a 355ml bottle on 10/3/2016. Pours a slightly cloudy golden with a small head, Has a muted aroma of caramel, honey, some citrus fruit and an odd slightly chemical smell. Take a sip and there’s a bit of sweet caramel malt, lots of sharp sweet and sour citrus, a bit of spice, followed by a big, quite astringent bitterness. The texture is a touch syrupy and the carbonation is soft. This is a bit of a weird one. Not at all typical of a west coast IPA, and comes across as a little unbalanced. On the bright side, it did begin to charm me just a little towards the end.

Terminal Gravity IPA
Bottle from Beer Cartel, Sydney. A fairly deep copper-amber colour with a small and fading off-white to light beige head on the pour. Aromas of pine, resin, tropical fruits and sweet-accented malt. Similar to taste wth a slight toastiness from the malt towards the back end. Mid-weight with definite malt heft but maintains a crisp, refreshing texture. Medium carbonation finishing with a moderate to full intensity and length bitterness.

12 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out bread malt, some cardboard, and English hops. Flavour is along the same lines, with bready malt, tart citrus and some lightly stale cardboardy notes. Nothing special, but it works well enough.

This would’ve made a strong 1100th review, but just had an off flavor to it, sorta soapy. or cardboardish. green dragon sprays cold water in each glass before pouring the beer. maybe a little contamination in aging (this a ’12). otherwise aromas of alcohol and cherry. bright cloudy golden color. well-balanced on the palate.

Terminal Gravity Festivale
Terminal Gravity Brewing’s Festivale Winter Warmer 8.4% It pours a deep reddish brown that is virtually black with a good 1cm of beige foam. The aroma is lovely rich maltiness: raisins, maple syrup, toffee, molasses - smells like something that was either was in a barrel or should be. Full bodied, malty sweet caramel, bitter, smoked maple and all in all a decent winter beer.

Terminal Gravity IPA
Bottle, 10C. Clear amber with an inch of near white head. Interesting aroma with bread crusts, peach, pine logs, kumquats, grapefruit. Full bodied but not sticky, moderate carbonation. Bittersweet with hop aromatics thoroughly melded into clean rich malt flavours. Bread, singed grain, peach, hints of stewed and dried fruit, citrus peel, pine. Fairly strong bitterness. A bit wearing after a while, but a fine beer and a good reminder that IPA is a very broad "style" even in the West of the US.

Draught at Collective on Tap, Woodinville, WA
Murky orange golden color with almost no head. The body is round, moderately sweet; there is some yeast, very light spices, light fruitiness. Orange peel in the final.
It tastes like some homebrew, not bad, a bit messy.
