22oz bottle $4.99 and marked at 6.5% ABV. Copper color, decent head, smells boring. Slight bit of hops and malt, really underwhelming. The taste was a step up, decent bitterness, hops, chewy malt and a thickness that is good. Definitely feels more like a string pale ale rather than an IPA. Not bad at all.

Bottle (One pint, 6 Fl Ozs): Deep golden to light amber coloured, almost clear,very stable creamy and lacy off-white head, visible carbonation; flowery hops,sweet malt, bread and caramel in the almost solid aroma; moderate to solid bitter-sweet flavour, medium bodied, but not really soft; lingering dry herbal to flowery hops and subdued sweet pale malt in the finish. Not the greatest american ale, but surely very good... 78samh (287) - Olympia, Washington, USA - DEC 23, 2016
12 oz bottle pours amber and clear with an off white head. Aroma is subdued with hints of caramel and lemon. Taste is great! Bitter yet not too bitter. Clean flavor but has a resinous hop mouth feel that is slightly sticky. Solid malt body. Without much aroma this seems like its lacking something. I would drink again. Good but not great.

Amber with white head. Light malty notes (bread, caramel) as well as some candy sweetness in the aroma. Not much hoppiness except a little citrus. The taste is quite IPAish though. Not much hop flavor but lots of bitterness towards the finish. Light/medium sweetness. Not completely balanced I think. Too much weight on the bitterness and too little on the aroma and/or malt base, in my opinion.

Portland, Or - Hawthorne Market - 22 oz bomber. Has a bit of a funky feet smelling aroma at first, evens out to a light spruce. Medium copper sparkling pour, nice off-white khaki colored head, Flavor has some pineapple fruitiness, a hint of citrus, some Juicy Fruit gum. Thickish mouthfeel. A bargain at $3.99 Darkmagus82 (2302) - - SEP 3, 2016
Poured from bomber into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a clear amber color with a billowy white head of foam. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a great level of foamy lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell –The aroma is strongest of a fruity nature with a good deal of tropical fruits as well as a lots of grapefruit and citrus hop and a moderate showing of some herbal hops. Along with these aromas comes some light grassy and hay smells as well.
Taste-The taste begins with a nice fruity flavor of tropical fruits with plenty of tangerine, pineapple and mango. Along with these flavors comes a rather strong doughy and caramel flavor creating a very sweet taste overall. While sweet, there is some hop flavors of a grapefruit citrus flavor upfront which are joined by some pine and grassy flavors later on. These flavors grow stronger and stronger as the taste advances, with a slight drying of the sweeter caramel and the doughy tastes, the flavor becomes slightly more cracker in nature, leaving one with a lightly danked, but overall fruity and citrusy taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is on the average side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is rather average. For the mix of hop and sweeter flavors combined with the bit of dankness and the dwindling of the sweet as the taste advances, the feel is rather nice and makes for a smoother and easy sipper overall.
Overall – A fairly nice and somewhat cleaner, but still slightly maltier, and sweeter, tasting IPA. While anything all that superb, it is certainly worth giving a try to if you get the chance.
