UPDATED: SEP 15, 2017 On draft at the brewery!
Aroma 7 /10: piney hop aroma
Appearance 3 /5: medium amber with small head and lacing on the glass
Palate 4 /5: moderately to heavily carbonated, but I have a preference for this in IPAs. Not particularly resiny or sticky, a bonus.
Taste 8 /10: heavy on the hops. Piney and herbal initially, had a hint of citrus or citrus pith at the end.
Overall 17 /20: a solid, old school west coast ipa - hop forward, bitter, and crisp.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a clear gold with a medium sized white head. Soft musk and a bit of citrus on the nose, musk, mangonion. Medium bodied, mangonion all over, green and citrus. Too green for me, lots of onion tones. Slow bitterness, onion lingers. Rough drinking for me.

From tap at Culmination, Portland. Aroma is soft fruity hops with biscuity malt, light fruity with a little pine and bready malt. Flavour is mild sweetish and medium bitter. Body is medium. Aroma made me think this was rather an APA, it’s a bit restrained. gephross100 (943) - Bellaire, Texas, USA - MAY 21, 2017

Bottle. Pale gold in colour with medium carbonation. Classic aromas of white grapefruit pith, dry cypress, and pine resin. Fairly fruit on the palate with a blend of grapefruit and under ripe apricot, along with some full pale malt and spent hop. Medium bodied with some solid bitterness. Decent.

On tap at Culmination, pours a clear blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out piney hops and dry biscuity malt. Flavour is loaded with piney hops upfront, backed with biscuity malt. Uber piney hoppiness on the finish. Excellent. Fatehunter (2582) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - DEC 28, 2016
Pours two fingers of head on a clear light straw body.
Aroma is bright orange and lemon with mango and pineapple support. Nice.
Taste has a nice orange sweet with lemon bitterness, some mild grapefruit too.
Texture is crisp. malrubius (2958) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - DEC 12, 2016
Bottle from Brewtopia. Clear gold with dense lasting white head and lotsa lace. Floral hop aroma with hints of spice citrus and honey. Mild apricot honey sweetness with floral hop flavor and mild spicy bitterness with hints of citrus. Medium light soft creamy body. Super clean but not overly refined. Definitely subtly different than most really small brew IPAs I’ve had lately in that it’s cleaner and less overtly citrus. Overall, excellent.
