enticing whiffs of dripping wet pine cones. solid taste profile. nothing spectacular here, just a good workhorse local IPA. altonbrownd (5897) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - AUG 28, 2016
[24/12/15] Bottle from Clackamas Town Center: Medium orange body with slight head. Nose is floral, hops, citrus. Taste is hops and a bump of citrus. Decent in the finish. mcberko (17845) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 31, 2015
On tap at Coalition, pours a cloudy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma has a bit of diacetyl that dominates. Flavour isn’t as infected, with light floral hops and biscuity malt, and ever so slight hint of diacetyl. Not a disaster but it’s off.

Draft - Pale malts and a touch of resin. Clearish gold with a white head. Pale malts and bittering hops. Average. slowrunner77 (12051) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 18, 2014
"Adequately bitter for a NW iPa but not as floral or robust in aroma and flavor ad I’d prefer. Almost English leaning, though a quality made one at that."

Tap. Hazy copper pour with white head. Pine, grapefruit, metallic. Good carbonation. Medium body with bitter finish. A slightly softer and balanced bitterness at the end would be better Reid (2541) - Salem, Oregon, USA - OCT 27, 2013
22oz bottle from "Lifesource" in Salem OR.
Pours a deep golden colour with a large frothy,creamy off white head.
Aromas of fresh spruce,orange peel and lemon zest hops..caramel malt backing.
Taste much the same as the aroma..with the lemon and spruce dominating..rather soapy character develops at the end..malts thin in this one.
Mouth feel is medium to thin..not too bad really.
Run of the mill IPA..on the drinkable side though

On draught at Coalition. Deep golden in color with lots of white head and bubbles. Malty aroma with notes of citrus. Taste is grassy and slightly citrusy hops (touch of orange) and a light malt profile. The finish is not bitter. Nice, but does not stand out. douglas88 (9192) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 27, 2013
Bomber. Pours a clear dark copper color with a large white head. A light biscuit, honey and lemon nose. Pretty simple: clean caramel, earthy malt, some bitter lemon and oranges. Decent. Nothing stands out. Beese (2743) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 23, 2013
Draft at Coalition Brewing in Portland, OR on 4 June 2013.
Slightly hazy light amber pour. Hop aroma was more floral, but the flavour was more of a bitter, citrus hop punch (it’s a good thing). Balanced palate with some juicy malt sweetness, but overall a nice lingering bitterness.
