Reid (2626) - Salem, Oregon, USA - FEB 3, 2014
22 oz bottle from "Lifesource" in Salem OR $4.29 Pours a typical burnt orange IPA colour but with a great thick,tight,creamy off white head. Fruity/piney juicy hop aromas..pine,lemon zest,pink grapefruit and papaya..delicious. Taste is pretty much the same as the aroma but with a nice light caramel malt backing which holds it together somewhat. Good medium bodied palate..with medium high carbonation,very drinkable. Good IPA..liked it.

Pici, villámgyorsan elillanó hab, félbarna szín. Grapefruitos, narancsos, déligyümölcsös illat. Citrusos, déligyümölcsös, enyhén citrushéjas ízek, némi fűszeres aromával. Közepesen tetes, közepesen szénsavas, erősen keserű. Kellemes, jól eltalált IPA.

On draft at brewery. Not much nose. Sweet hop candy like most their beers. Light harsh balance.

Oh, Hop Valley. Our time together was so sweet. Good service, friendly patrons, delicious homemade empanadas with salsa verde, and hoppy beer everywhere. Citrus Mistress was the last of my 4 half pints at Hop Valley, and, my god, what a gorgeous way to end it. Citrus Mistress has a copper-orange appearance. Massive tropical fruit and fruity candy aromatics. Passion fruit, grapefruit, tangerine, guava, apricot, mango, peach, and clementine flavors. Just a hint of caramel malt underneath and way more than a hint of bitterness. This is probably the most approachable of the IPA's I tried, and it's still not for the faint of heart. All good things must end. Alas, it was for the best. My palate was pretty much wrecked from having 4 West Coast IPA's in a row.

473ml can. Pours a hazy medium orange with tiny particles floating around and a large, frothy, long lasting, white head that leaves curtains of lace. Sweet aroma of pale malt, grapefruit, peach, tropical fruit and floral. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, grapefruit peel, orange peel, tropical fruit, pine resin and a dry, bitter grass finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Tasty.

I’m not a beer expert but I’ve had a decent amount of different ipa’s and this one is really smooth with a nice bitter to sweet ratio with a citrus touch. Not too bitter but can still taste the hops, I hate when ipa’s are way too bitter and that’s suppose to be considered good, I’m fine with a decent amount of bitterness but when it over powers everything then it’s not that enjoyable. This is a solid A, good stuff
