Poured from a 22oz bomber and served in a tulip. This IPA poured a glowing amber/orange with a lasting head of beige foam. Heavy lacing covered the entire glass. The flavor was made up of fresh oranges, lemon, grapefruit, and caramel. Big and floral. The flavor was mildly cirtrusy and had a lasting bitterness, but, a strong flavor of iced tea just muddled the whole thing. Very leafy and herbal. The mouthfeel was full-bodied and softly carbonated. Every aspect of this beer seemed well made, but the flavor was just not my thing. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2009
Bottle at Nya Trols, Malmø - shared with Mette. Cloudy amber - white head. Knækbrød (swedish flatbread), toasted, hoppy, grass, light bitterness, sweetness, soapy, light yeasty. OK. TheHulk (486) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 24, 2010
Hops have a definate sour/citrus grapefruit aroma, smells like the hops used for preservation took a backseat to nicer, softer aromas. Some head on pour, alright lacing, really nice orange colour, somewhat hazy. The taste is dominated by the same bitterness as the aroma, the malt have a slight appearance but then the hops fade out the palate. It’s a bit too concentrated on the bitterness, which isn’t my favourite flavour. Where’s the Cascade?!? Sorry, I had to. Not bad really, but not too my preference. I should note I had a 1000 IBU earlier today. 5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 15, 2011
Bottle:   Dark dirty straw, slightly hazy, moderate white frothy head, nice lacing.   Soft perfumy aroma, slight hop presense, pale malt aroma.   Slightly bittersweet perfumy start, moderate hop bitterness.   Has a biting resiny aspect, minor grainess.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Slightly astringent finish.   Okay IPA, but a little harsh overall.   Seems somewhat clean, but has a perfumy aspect that makes it seem hotter than normal.   Its like it tries to hard to be much bigger. beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - AUG 23, 2008
From the bottle this pours as a yeasty mess, lots of sediment, and I poured as carefully as I could. Murky orange/amber boxy with a tall white head. The murkiness gets in the flavor, sort of yeasty slurry bitterness. The hops are floral and strong, big grapefruit character, seems to have picked up some diacytel. Very bitter finish, emphasized by the yeasty flavor, fairly sharp, probably very nice when fresh on tap, but this was sort of a mess of an IPA.

I had this beer and the Triple Jump back to back. At first, I didn’t realize that Eugene City was a Rogue spin-off, much like North Coast launched Acme. The parallel continues in my mind, as I found these Eugene City beers to be pretty inferior to the standard set by the beers of the Rogue family (although not lousy, as the Acme beers are compared to North Coast’s excellent beers). I was less than impressed by both the Triple Jump and the 200 Meter. To be quite honest, I theorized at one point that they could be the same beer.
Appearance was a hazy yellow-amber with a great creamy looking head. Aroma was faintly hoppy with some light citrus. Flavor was further slightly hoppy but really not very distinct or memorable. Mouthfeel was OK. I’d rather have purchased some Bell’s Two-Hearted instead.
I would weakly recommend this beer. I bought this bottle at Discount Liquor in Milwaukee. can8ianben (1545) - State College, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2009
Kind of a dry British IPA - not much in the way of sticky citrus presence - more of a dry pine body and aroma. Fairly light and balanced which means for an IPA you could drink quite a few of these bad boys. carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 16, 2010
on tap at rogue brewery in portland. medium bitterness ipa with a light body and unfilling feel. sessionable hotstuff (5158) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 25, 2013
Backlog rating 2-25-2009 (Bottle) This beer pours a small white head with poor retention, fizzy fast rising carbonation, hazy body, no lacing, and a golden hue. The Aroma is sweet, honey, grapefruit and pine. The Taste is sweet, honey, bitter, grapefruit, and pine. The Palate is tingly and this is a medium bodied IPA. All-in-all, a tasty IPA.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2009 pours a cloudy light yellow very easy aroma of hops and and a smooth hoppy taste with a bitter palate.
