Excellent strong-hopped Northwest IPA scent. Light, colorful tone. The scent was particularly good. Solid, but somewhat standard, Northwest IPA taste. Very smooth and easy - typical IPA. Somewhat dull mouthfeel, but solid hops balance. An excellent Northwest IPA. Would purchase again!

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Look - golden color, clear, with about half a finger's worth of off-white colored foam that dissipates quickly.
Smell - typical floral aroma of hops, not much else noticeable.
Taste - the taste is much like the aroma. There's not a whole lot going on here other than the taste and feel of hops. Both of which are nice, by the way. For an IPA, this hits the mark right on as far as style, but there's not much else here that adds character. At least, not that I'm noticing.
Mouthfeel - pretty mild in mouthfeel, not too creamy or too thin.
Overall - very good representative of the style, but not terribly memorable.

Served on tap into a shaker glass.
A- Poured a dark hazy orange color with soapy white head that dissipated instantly and left no lace.
S- Pungent grapefruit and sweet orange citrus notes, almost like an orange marmalade. The aroma does not stick around for long though.
T- Big pungent grapefruit notes, orange marmalade, and cotton candy sweetness. A sweeter hop and malt profile for an IPA with moderate bitterness.
M- Soft carbonation, semi-dry finish, and medium body. HIghly drinkable.
O- A solid IPA, not overly complex but lots of nice grapefruit and orange citrus hop character with some nice sweetness from the malt.

22oz.bottle from Roth’s Vista Market in S.Salem. $4.69 This is now just Hopnob IPA and is 6.0% alc. typical clear orange IPA coloured ale large impressive frothy white head..stays for ever. Not the most aromatic IPA..what there is is citric and resin with a bit of caramel thrown in. Taste is the same mainly citric( i am reminded of Seville orange) hops and a nice caramel malt backing..very simple. Nice enough mouthfeel just about right for style though could have used more carbonation. Pretty average beer which is a disappointment as i have always liked Silver Moon when i visit Bend..it has more of a local feel about it and the beers fresh are great..in bottles i am not so sure.

Enjoying this one on the porch, a bit chilly tonight.
Dull orange and gold color, nice head, good retention
Aroma has the west coast stigma. Piney and citrus. Light caramel malt undertones, more of a biscuit malt.
Flavors are solid and go well with the bite in the middle and at the finish. Citrus and some floral mixes in with citrus. Sweetness up front a bit and then at the end. Caramel first, quickly, and biscuit at finish.
Good dryness, easy drinking

On tap @ the tasting room in Bend.
A - orange in color with a 3/4 inch head. Lacing is outstanding.
S - citrus and pine. Smell is the best quality of this IPA.
T - disappoints after the anticipation after smell. Overall bitterness not commensurate with the aroma.
M - a little over carbonated but only a little.
O - a fresh light ipa good on a summer day.

On tap at The Red Hot in Tacoma on 6/9/12.
Appearance: Slightly hazy bright orange color only a bit of head and not much lacing on the glass.
Smell: Subtle citrus hops with some floral notes that are less prominent.
Taste: Initially a citrus hop flavor, then a rich caramel malt flavor takes over the palate. Mild bitterness as it finishes. Light flavors overall.
Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with slightly lower than average carbonation. Dry as it finishes.
Overall: An average West Coast IPA that doesn't have any flavors jumping out at me. Still, drinkable and decent hop profile.
