Well, this is THE best IPA I’ve ever tasted. Not one sour note that I can mention so....I’m giving it a perfect 5. Bad_Goat (2) - springfield, Oregon, USA - NOV 22, 2013 does not count
If i could only drink one IPA ever again, it would be this one. It’s always better when i can find it on tap, but it’s pretty good in the bottle too. It has great malt complexity, and still maintains a strong hop profile. chronictonic (472) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2003
HOLY SHIT this is an awesome IPA!! Cloudy muddy yellow in the glass. A VERY strong grapefruit like hop aroma - you can smell it from arms length. Surprisingly, a perfectly balanced hop flavor - very biased towards the bitter citrusy side of hoppiness. Hop flavors are nicely balanced out with a nice malt toastiness. Hands down the best IPA of our beer trip to Oregon and Northern CA. (followed by the Lost Coast Indica IPA). May be on my top 5 list of best beers I've ever tried.

Since moving to the PacNW in 2001, I’ve become a lover of all beer local (N.Cali included). I’ve tried well over 100 IPAs from across the U.S. and to my opinion, TG IPA is tops, though Lagunitas Maximus IPA rateas a solid second.
TG’s IPA is a tantalizing copper, orange whose murkiness entices the drinker as bieing a crsip hop-fest in waiting. THe combination of malts make this IPS smooth, after the hard hop hit, finishing clean but full. slacktart (3) - USA - FEB 1, 2010 does not count
A near perfect IPA.
A bright, brilliant orange tone with a slightly cloudy, unfiltered NW look.
The Aroma reminds me of a breakfast of citrus fruit on a Pacific NW beach.
The taste is brilliant... subtle beginning with a strong and warm bitter/salty/citrus finish. Very complex tastes that leave you admiring and analyzing the beer for hours and days.
Great balance on the palate, a nice medium body with perfect texture and a nice long finish.
I really love this IPA, which is certainly best on draft.

Phenomenal. Pours beautiful golden auburn, more on the dark side of that visual mix. Great blend of hops. Some malt, nut, a bit of spiciness. Has almost a slight porter feel to it, but there’s a pleasant lightness. Just amazing in the blend. Goes down so easy, I could roll through several of these. Definitely a top IPA experience. dwyerpg (6217) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - SEP 15, 2009
This IPA smells just like dogfishhead 90 minute. A good strong caramel hop flavor, with a nice hop finish, but none of the hops are the bittering killers, so it has a quite nice flavor. CaptAnkeny (15) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - MAY 13, 2008
On tap at the Oregon Brewers Fest. It’ll be there again this year in ’08, so looking forward to sampling this very hoppy IPA again soon. Very impressed with the taste, a bit grapefruity, definitely bitter and again very HOPPY.
If in Oregon, a must-try brew.
Loved it so much, got the tee-shirt while in Portland. My favorite tee! dukefan (215) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 3, 2003
When you ask an Oregonian what is the perfect IPA, Terminal Gravity leaps immediately to mind. Huge hops that are totally in harmony with the beer. Great tasting beer, that stands out in a world of hoppy Pacific NW beers. mikebeertaster (114) - washougal, Washington, USA - MAR 18, 2004
what a wonderful beer. Has a great bold flavor that is different from most other IPA's. Once you have a pint of Gravity you won't mistake it for anything else.
