12 oz single from Roths Sunnyslope Market deep in snow bound S.Salem!
After an epic trek through the snow to the market i think i deserved at least one beer!
Classic burnt orange coloured body to the beer with a nice frothy head..that goes fast but lace is strong.
Good hoppy aromas..mainly Seville orange/marmalade.A bit of spicyness also.
Taste similar to aroma..quite simple citrus hopping ,light caramel malts..again classic IPA.
Mouth feel is a tad on the thin side but that’s fine for drinking.
Classic IPA..this could have been brewed 20 years ago.
Bit dated but fine enough.
Bottle:   Amazing looking IPA, darker orange, moderate to large foamy sandy colored head, very nice lacing.   Very soft hops on the nose.   Seems moreso a biscuit sort of aroma with very faint pithy bitterness.   Similar on the tongue, not a very hoppy example.   I get more graininess and biscuit notes than I do any sort of hop aspect.   Does have a little bit of soft pithy background.   Finishes witha bit of a earthy and grainy jaunt, then with a bit of a pithy aftertaste.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Looks great, but comes across as very mild with more malt characters than hop.   Smooth, but damnit... needs to have more hop character and less malt. jake65 (4000) - Meridian, Idaho, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Bottle: Light golden color topped with a large creamy white head. Tons of sticky sheet lacing. Aroma is very PNW… lots of citrus and pine. Dank hops. Potent and inviting. Taste is a bit dry and floral, dusty. Lingering bitters. Some grapefruit and faint sweetness, but also a little soapy. The nose is really strong and nice, but the taste falls a little short. It’s not bad, but better flavor development could have been a homerun. WABeerFiend (426) - - JAN 19, 2015
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 10.27.14.
A: Lots of grapefruit and orange. Mango is there too.
A: 1 finger head. Hazy orange body.
T: Grapefruit and orange dominate. Pine, candied mango, and hop resin are subtle.
P: Crisp and nicely bubbly.
O: This is a bit rough, but solid, IPA. It did feel a bit flat in the mouth, even though it had plenty of bubbles. The Citra hops really make this one. mjg74 (3182) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Bottle from Fred Meyer. Hazy golden /amber in color. Big pungent hop nose. Spiced/citrus hop notes up front. Hops and a sweet fruitiness as well. Pretty hoppy, but not great in flavor. bb (9789) - Alamo, California, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Bottle. Amber beer with a cream head. Grapefruit and light pine aroma. Grapefruit and light pine flavor. Medium bodied. Good bitterness. Grapefruit and light pine linger.

Bottle shared by Ken at Capitol Beer. Pours amber with white head. Aroma of light floral hop. Med body. Flavor is malt and some floral/pine hop. Not strong hop. Not too bitter. Ok. Ferris (16519) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 11, 2014
Bottle - Sweet and slightly boozy grapefruit. Hazy gold with a rich white head. Sweet light citrus peel, some sweetness and more orange sweetness. Big nose but relatively meek flavours. Masterkush7 (581) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 16, 2014
Citrus, pine, caramel and a hint of spice. Light bitterness throughout. Hoppy resin in the middle. Solid IPA finish. Tasty.

Not sure why a single ipa is deserving of a 20th AV, but that said...this is likely the best beer I've had from them. Nicely balanced bitter and sweet. Grapefruit and light pine. Good body for a regular old ipA. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - SEP 26, 2014
12-oz. Thanks, C! Pours a lightly hazy pale gold with a loose whitish head. Nice sweet biscuity piney nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Lightly toasted caramel, biscuits, and pine on the mid palate. Soft sweetish finish.
