Rusty Truck American Wheat IPA
On tap at the Lincoln City BP Sry nice clear deep golden with a thin brief head but sturdy lasting lacing. Definitely a wheat beer but plenty of hop flavors. Modestly buttered for an IPA but seem appropriate for a wheat beer. Smooth and soft and a little fruity. Interesting

Rusty Truck Redline Double IPA
On tap at Loyal Legion, pours a hazy orange amber with a small beige head. Aroma brings out notes of hop resins and caramel bready malt. Flavour is pretty bland, with bready malt, hop resins and syrupy notes. Not well-balanced at all. Meh.

Rusty Truck Road Wrecker IPA
a couple of pints at the brewpub/restaurant..$4.00 a piece. Slightly cloudy orange beer with a good sized frothy cream head. Nice dank deep hop aromas. Taste is quite bitter but a bit malty..PNW style. Very nice mouth feel easy to drink stuff. A reasonable PNW IPA..OK

Rusty Truck McKay's Cascade Harvest Fresh Hop
Draft 10 oz pour at the Horse Brass pub. Rating from last night’s notes because this place apparently doesn’t believe in cell reception. So cool to be back here.  Pours a slightly cloudy golden orange with a fizz ring head.  Lemon and hops aroma.  A little grassy.  Orange fruit.  Hop bitter finish.  Tasty beer.

Rusty Truck Pedal to the Metal Double IPA
On tap at Saraveza’s 6th IIPA Fest, pours a hazy golden orange with a small white head. Aroma is unbalanced, with lots of candied sweetness and a little resin. Flavour is badly balanced, with candied sugar, caramel malt and some resinous hops. Very jagged and badly incorporated flavours. Quite poor.

Rusty Truck Cruiser Session IPA
Pint served at Growl Movement Salem OR $5. Light orange colour..looked ever so slightly hazy.nice off white head. Aroma was pretty OK mostly citrus and grass like hops. Taste quite good for style strong citrus hop flavour and a nice body. Mouth feel was again excellent for style thicker than expected and went down real smooth. Did not expect too much from this Brewery but this quite acceptable ISA

Rusty Truck Cherry Chocoholic Baltic Porter
Wonderfully dark pour with a medium, though persistent, head trailing down the glass. Smells of chocolate malt with sweet cherry. Not surprisingly the chocolate flavor persists and you get the cherries on top. Nice and solid.

Something about President Taft. Anyways, the beer is way too sweet, therefore, not appealing.

Incredible cherry base, very good notes without being saccharine, the chocolate notes are a little muted and dry, hops are quite nice in balance in the finish.

Rusty Truck Road Wrecker IPA
From growler fill station Growler Guys in Bend, Oregon. I believe the stated ABV was 6.65 and IBU of 70. Pours a very coppery color with an off white head that dissipated quickly. Aroma of alcohol that seems more floury than citrus. Full flavored but seemed to get flat rather quickly for us. Better than some IPAs in the NW but given where I live, I have many choices and we may or may not come back to this one. However, if you at the coast and can go the "Truck" then that would be a no brainer!

Rusty Truck Procrastinator Stout
On draught at Roadhouse 101. Dark amber color. Not much depth to the aroma and taste, mostly some light roasted malt notes. Not really a stout; much weaker bodied and lacking darkness, both in color and taste.
