TheAlum (7164) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - FEB 11, 2016
Draft on tap at the brewpub (Pacific City, OR). This is the Willamette version from Fall 2015 Harvest Season. Pours a nice deeper orange amber hue, a gentle haziness, mellow cascading bubbles with frothy offwhite head atop. Nice lacing as a filmy layer with decent ringer head. Aromas are green and fresh, floral and earthy, gentle resiny quality as the fruit shows mellow to minimal life. A bit bready but a mellow malt presence allows a more robust rich floral and fresh hop resiny feel, hop oils protrude and stick around nicely. Initial is a touch more mellow, lighter bodied but a touch heavier on that end with some firmer earthy bitterness, mellow malt presence and a flash of lime. Mellow pithy citrus, some earth, a bit of sweetness as we round the corner shows some bread, biscuit, a touch of caramel. A fun richer nose and pretty pour, the beer delivers some life up front but becomes a bit drab into the finish. A touch sweet, dry, earthy. Ok. Really dug the nose and aroma. Sad they don’t break these out properly. IndianaRed (4647) - Boise, Idaho, USA - SEP 27, 2014
On Tap at The River Room, Whole Foods, Boise. Hazy deep orange witha full dense sandy head. Nice fresh citrus tangerine hop aroma. Creamy ful bodies palate, modest and smooth bitterness. Great pale malt flavors and a little more late citrus pithiness at the end. Very nice. jmm635 (1009) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2014

Poured from tap to glass at the Growler Cafe. Hazy golden hue with creamy white head that dissipated to a ring. Aroma is grassy, pine, grapefruit, tangerine. Mouthfeel is refreshing with a medium body and zesty carbonation. Taste is slightly sweet with a bitter finish that extends through the finish. Overall this is a nice fresh hop!

Tap at Pelican brewpub as "Elemental IPA". Pours a clear orange. Webby lacing. Nose is juicier citrus hops, perfume, moving to something a bit chemical. Taste is chemically bitter, perfumey, sharp ginger bite, white grape juice. Clean, balanced body. Strange, but likeable. Prufrockstar (2132) - Moscow, Idaho, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Draft at Brouwer’s. Pours a clear, pale, orangeish amber. Resin, pine, onion, just a little biscuit in the aroma. Taste is lightly sweet up front with assertive (but still quite pleasant) bitterness. Medium body, average carbonation, easy to drink. Solid. mcberko (17854) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 12, 2013
On tap at Brouwer’s Cafe, pours a clear bronze with a medium white head. Aroma brings out quite a bit herbal hops, a little pine, and earthy malts. Flavour brings out very fresh earthy and piney hops. Not really much of a malt backbone, but the hops shine bright. Good stuff.
