Salmoniform (1281) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - AUG 20, 2014
Poured from can to glass. Honey hue with creamy white head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is melon, pine, papaya, strawberry, grass. Mouthfeel is great with a medium body and zesty carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness initially with a nice strong hop bitterness following that extends into the finish. Overall this is a really nice fruity IPA.

GIJOE (1256) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - JUN 5, 2016
Pours a golden color with a foamy, white head that stays forever. Nose is somewhat fruity: citrus with light pine notes. Taste is sweet with a distinct hop bite. Well balanced. Medium body; moderate carbonation. Quite good beer.

From the can, bitch. Orange with a sticky white head. Nose is fruits, grapefruit, mango, peach, and some evident pines. Flavor is some caramels, bread sweetness, with a punchy bitterness. Really nice IPA with solid fruits.

Orange pour. Nose and taste are tropical fruit puree, balance of malts and piney hops bring forward the frutiness. PNW IPA’s don’t seem to be my style but this was well done.

19Ei8hty (1166) - Washington, USA - SEP 23, 2013
Hazy straw body with a tall white head. Moderate grainy malt character. A little doughy. Some light toasted bread. Fresh floral and grass notes. Some light sweet fruit. a bit watery and thin.

3.6
Sammer (1119) - Plano, Texas, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Bottle. Copper pour with a large pillowy head. Taste is bold hops, pine, dough and citrus. A nice, somewhat boozy finish. Nice.

stchloe (1112) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 18, 2012
Decent IPA, good hop profile if not particularly pronounced or creative, lots of resins with some fruitiness to balance it out. Darker malt body balances it out, but otherwise meh.

Tasty brew from can. Relieved this beauty as an extra in a trade. Drank from can. Nice balance as advertised. Very enjoyable IPA.
