16 oz single can from "Lifesource" Salem OR.
Cloudy orange IPA, with a large thick,tight bubbly off white head.
Spicy ,resiny,grassy hop aromas..quite fresh or so it seems.
Taste is the same but with dank resiny hop taking the forefront.
Slight lemon aspect also.
Good thick yet drinkable palate..low carbonation.
Nice enough IPA typical of the PNW style Prufrockstar (2132) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - AUG 2, 2013
16 oz can, consumed at home alone after fighting with my toddler to just go the hell to sleep -- a bitter IPA is just what I’m in the mood for. Pours hazy orange-ish amber with creamy head, leaving behind loads of lacing. Aroma is hugely piney. Some pineapple/grapefruit citrus in there for backup, mingling with just a bit of caramel. Taste is an explosion of resinous bitterness with just enough malt beneath to remain pleasant. Big lingering dry, bitter finish. Medium body, average carbonation, creamy texture. Overall: This is a clean, big and bitter resinous IPA. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - JUL 25, 2013
16-oz can. Pours a cloudy dark amber with a loose white head. No lace. Gorgeous big bright fresh dimensional grapefruit and pine nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty caramel with grapefruit, pine, and orange on the mid palate. Loooong resiny finish. crackedmachine (481) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 25, 2013
Very hazy honey-orange with a ton of lasting off-white head. Aroma of moderately fruity citrus, floral hops, a tad of pine and caramel. Flavor is bitter floral hops with moderate malt sweetness and bitter finish. Despite all the foam, it feels a little flat. Sarlacc83 (2287) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 20, 2013
A: Clean light orange body with a firm and fluffy white head. Looks very inviting.
N: Pine, spruce and earth, though there’s not a really heavy dropping here. Some tangerine and pineapple.
T: Decently bitter. Has a noticeable malt backbone, but it’s got a stinging sharpness from the hops that isn’t tamed.
M: Very dry and palate scraping. Fluffy and full mouthfeel.
O: A bitter power beer that’s middle of the road for a style for me. I expect a lot more from these three. It’s clean and well made, but it’s not terribly interesting.

Draught. Cloudy orange pour with a white head. Much lacing. Aroma is fairly full, citrus aroma. Flavour is rather less, but more hop. There is some malt in the finish pdx77 (1483) - Oregon, USA - JUL 17, 2013
On draught at PDX Beer Week 2013 Kickoff Party at Lucky Labrador. Light golden color. Honeyed citrus aroma. Grassy hop flavor. Oddly, has a smooth bitter finish. raphael (1265) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 13, 2013
On tap at Micky Finn’s-- thanks Josh.. slightly hazy amber with modest white head. aroma of pine, caramel, & wheat bread. definite texture. flavor was chewy, hops still definite but pushing against a wheatish cloud, not sweet just white noise. 3fourths (9349) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Can. Hazy orange body with a fine white head. Cheesy Simcoe musty fruit rind and pith, yeasty and sulfuric and (mildly) eggy. Sweet pound cake malt, sugary and sweet orange marmalade with a light touch of sweet onion / shallot. Sweet, bitter and yeasty. Smooth malt with creamy carbonation. boFNjackson (4201) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 5, 2013
Can... Poured cloudy golden amber with a thin white-ish head. Nose had earthy, resinous spiced hops. Similar hop tones in the flavor. Some bready malts for balance but low on sweetness and a nice bitterness. Citrus, black pepper spice, nice carbonation and a little drying towards the finish with some yeast notes there.
