COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
When the first Pale Ales were sailed around the Cape to arrive in India in the early 18th century, outcries of “Zounds! Jolly good! and Huzzah!” were heard across the East Indian subcontinent. Similar exclamations are to be expected when sniffing the piney aroma and tasting the big hops, huge citrus and candy-like malt of Pfriem’s own IPA. Drink up, Guv’nor.

On tap at Roscoes. Pine, honey and caramel aroma. I taste pine, grapefruit, pilsner, corn. solid yellow with thin but clingy white head. light wight but fizzy. enjoyable.

10-04-17 bottled; tasted 11-09-17 Citrus, orange and grapefruit, aroma. Cloudy burnt orange color. 1/2 inch white head that disappears quickly to a bubbly cap and ring. Sharp tingly feel. Solid malt body, perhaps a bit of biscuit. Sharp citrus initial taste, with tropical fruit, perhaps a bit of melon or mango, in the middle and finish. A good, but not overbearing, level of bittering in the middle, finish, and aftertaste. Very dry finish. The citrus, tropical fruit, and melon flavors, with the nice level of bittering and a solid body, combine for a very well done IPA. BTW, I don't get the griping about the "strange" bottle size. Some of you people need to get out more. Same about griping about the price. It is less expensive per ounce that your typical IPA bomber.

From a 500 ml bottle into a Pints for Prostates tulip glass. Pours gold with head and lace. Aroma of grains, pineapple at first, straw hops, grapefruit zest. Significant carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of grains, hay, earth, straw hops, slight toothpaste, pale malts. Overall big, bold, rich, challenging but tasty to a hop head!

Judging by the description, pFriem IPA is an English interpretation of the style. However, this beer has an undeniably American character. The coloring is gold-orange. There is a lot of caramel malt, but the balance is clearly hop-forward. Piney and pithy flavors throughout with a long, bitter finish. Tasty.

mezr (158) - California, USA - SEP 23, 2017
Poured from a bottle a clear golden color with a white frothy head. Aroma is citrus and pine. Medium body with average carbonation. lightly bitter with a long bitter finish.

Itzjerm (3119) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - SEP 14, 2017
Perfect modern east coast IPA with west coast brains. Juicy but still west coast pine. This may be the perfect IPA? Nose is nice but could use some improvement. Sweet ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ricke49 (81) - La Pine, Oregon, USA - SEP 6, 2017
This IPA offers a no-nonsense approach to ultimate balance. Hops and Malt both express themselves in full measure. Beer is hoppy indeed, both at first taste and during the aftertaste the malt profile is consistently present. This is craft beer that exhibits the purest definition of "craft". pFriem is a significant contributor to the Oregon beer scene...and we, as consumers are the beneficiaries. That's sounds over the top no doubt...but as you enjoy one of their creations on a late summers day, such hyperbole issues forth with little effort. Find their beer. Drink it.

zoucrew102 (2104) - - AUG 26, 2017
500ml bottle. Grapefruit citrus hop aroma with notes of tropical fruit, pine resin and some caramel malt. Pours clear golden colored with a large tan head that has excellent retention and some lacing. Starts with grapefruit hop flavor and acidity with a little bit of caramel malt and tropical fruit. Finishes dry and a touch bitter with pine resin hop flavors that linger on the palate after each sip. Solid IPA.

JK (6294) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - JUL 4, 2017
Bottled, less than one month old. Gold color with a little haze. This is an old school ipa. Not overly bitter, fresh bread and a hop flavor with somw citrus. Well made.

3.2
argeru (168) - Hillsboro, Oregon, USA - JUN 30, 2017
Bottle; straw gold, big sticky head; almost no aroma; balanced clean crisp bright, orange and fruit/floral hop; nice carbonation; quite good as far as classic style points, nose was disappointed.
