COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In the spring of 1980, a bearded, long haired, ragtag work crew known as the Gypsy Stumpers were hired to clear the stumps out of the newly formed runs on Hood River Meadows. Camped at lift tower 10 on HRM, they worked long hours falling trees six feet in diameter, but only three feet tall. Much like the stumpers, this beer works twice as hard for your riding pleasure. Tangerine and herbal flower notes make their way through the resinous, pine forest nose. Its sturdy body holds the weight of the vigorous hopping, resulting in an assertive balance.

stevoj (5358) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 1, 2017
Bottle from Whole Foods. Medium amber with huge fluffy head.Aroma is more malts than hops, kind of dusty. Taste leads with dry malts, mild astringent hops, woody, musty. English notes abound more ale, than IPA.

Tropical tropical tropical - what more need be said? Might be the most pineapple, papaya laden beer I’ve experienced. The hop bitterness simply disappears into a tropical fruit void. Enjoyed this brew, but only once in a while I suspect.

¥o-landi Vi$$er is a G¥ps¥ $tumper and she’d love this. It’s a freaky mishmash of pine, citrus, spruce. It’s a little chalky which takes a bit away from the enjoyment. The aroma is quite strange too...very pine sappy, with orange rind, and with some alcohol rounding it out.

3.7
maekchu (3997) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 17, 2017
Bottle from New Seasons Market - Williams in Portland. Fresh, light citrus nose, with a bit of pine. Light amber color. Tropical fruit, ripe stone fruit, mid palate tangy fruit, resiny hops. Medium body. Very nice, all sorts of fruit notes throughout the palate.

Sarlacc83 (2287) - Portland, Oregon, USA - FEB 3, 2017
Tap at Woodstock. A: Semi-clear copper with a thin white head and lacing. N: Orange zest, pineapple, grapefruit, toffee, biscuit, pine, and papaya. T: Bitterness and sweetness. M: Medium-light body, big alcohol, crisp carbonation. O: Very fruity IPA that manages to overcome the booze. Surprised that I like this more than others, but I guess it’s a good ’vintage’.

Alphadelic (2249) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 23, 2017
Now I’m a little stuffed up but this is good stuff. A little sweet on the nose but offset by some herbal hops with a twist of the tropical. A good mixture of bitterness and sweet malt in the finish.

IndianaRed (4862) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 19, 2017
On Tap hazy golden wth a off white head and lacing. Big up front citrus pithy aromas. Lemon, grapefruit and tangerine. Flavors are not as appeasing. Some o that citrus bite but more of a light thin chemically flavor. Well attenuated for a quite dry finish.

2.9
UXO (1896) - CANADA - AUG 24, 2016
Appearance: clear pale amber with one finger of ivory head, excellent retention and chunky lacing. (4/5) Aroma: caramel malt, tropical fruit, resiny pine, grapefruit pith, cardboard, grassy. (5/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate-high bitter. (5/10) Medium slightly slick body, moderate carbonation, lingering bitter finish. (3/5) Meh. Smells like a malt-forward DIPA, with an added frisson of wet cardboard. Not bright, not interesting, not fun. Pretty, though. So, your typical high-school crush: disappointing once you’ve had it. OK, fine, it’s not terrible. It’s just not very good. (12/20)

2.4
DuffMan (10549) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 29, 2016
Bottle, shared with Mike G, Parksy, Grippitis, PQ. Hazy golden, lively white head. Over ripe tropical fruit, pineapple, melon, medicinal phenols, overly sweet malt base and aspirin bitterness. Pretty bad.

3.6
after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - APR 22, 2016
Draft at SB for the 4-20 total tap takeover. Pours a cloudy pale amber with a loose white head that lasts a bit. Big grapefruit and resin nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Grapefruit and resin on the mid-palate, over a base of light caramel. Mild finish.
