2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Draft at Old Chicago. Pours a dark orange color with no head retention. Nose is light with some pine notes. The taste isn’t as hoppy as expected. slightly soapy in the finish. A decent brew but tasted more like a pale ale than a big IPA as the name suggests.
Had this at the Horse Brass blind IPA tasting, Portland, OR - Light orange with a hint of brown. The aroma i very light and lemony, not much there. Very malty, not much hop character, a little honey and caramel. Forgettable. troopie (2457) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - DEC 14, 2009
A super draught IPA. Poured Orange with medium white head. Citrusy tangeriney aroma. Citrus flavour, medium bodied with enough malt to keep it in balance. lasting hop finish. A good counterbalance to sweet beers. boFNjackson (4230) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 30, 2009
Tap @ a Pizza Schmizza... Poured a vibrant orange with a white head, decent amount of lacing on the glass. This was a big floral IPA. Not so much of a bitterness, but a good, lasting resinous quality with citrus notes, caramelized grains flavors and a hoppy finish. stchloe (1112) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 14, 2008
Full bodied IPA, the hop profile quite complex. Pine, bitter, and good ABV to go down. DrunkenWeasel (224) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 3, 2006
Pours light amber with a medium white head. Smells slightly floral with some pine in there. Taste has VERY little hop taste with caramel notes almost more pronounced than the hops. Slightly watery, doesn’t cling to the mouth enough with a short lived aftertaste. I can see why some might like this one it’s an easy drink but I like more going on in my IPAs. jasonp (1581) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - AUG 13, 2005
On tap at McMenamin’s Ram’s Head location in Portland. Clear golden amber with an off-white head. Lots of pine and Pacific NW hops in the nose, nice. Flavor is of fresh, hoppy grapefruit/citrus, mango, pine, resin and a little caramel. Pleasantly sweet, bitter finish. Full, round body with a smooth texture and moderate carbonation. Lacing hangs on the glass in sheets, great head retention. Glad I got to try this one, good IPA.
