This stuff really impressed me on tap, so much so that I had to snag a growler to share here at home. Old school American IPA in appearance - copper gold with minimal beading and a dense finger or two of paper white head. Tons of lace.

Absolutely love the nose on this one. Fruity mango, pineapple and citrus run the show but there are trace amounts of conifer, herb, spice and mellow malt.

Not sure what sort of "experimental hops" they used for this one, but I approve. A great blend of mango, spruce, hibiscus and garlic. The malt profile is pretty much buried, but the hop flavors still manage to keep one another in check.

Easily my favorite non-cask IPA from the Hoops.

Perfect pour at the brewery. 1 finger white fluffy, slightly creamy head that won't go away. Nice lacing. Sticky! Beautiful burnt orange-gold hue with a touch of hop haze. BIG tropical fruit on the nose - pineapple, mango, a bit of sweet orange peel and a touch of lemon sit on top of a "vermonty" yeast aroma and a perfect delicate body of malty goodness. Taste: oh my sweet loving god. This may be the perfect blend of "new school" and "old school" ipa. A strong bold citrusy, spicy bitterness leads the way with juicy sticky mandarin, pineapple, and other tropical notes following through. Perfect body, perfect carbonation. Malt body supports, yet stays out of the way, and the yeast (it's gotta be an "east coast" strain...) adds a beautiful creamy complexity. This is an amazing IPA. Highly recommended.

Bottled Jul 16 2013. 7.6% ABV (they said this is the highest they've made it thus far). Poured into pint glass.
A: Pours a clear golden yellow with 1/2 inch white head. Decent retention. Faint lacing.
S: Wonderful mix of hop aromas (grapefruit, soft pine, floral, citrus, and even blueberry).
T: Follows aroma well...blueberry, grapefruit, spicy citrus, pine, and a hint of floral notes.
M: Light body, relatively mild hop bite (especially considering the strong hop presence). Bitter and dry finish. Minimal malt backbone.
D: Highly refreshing and drinkable IPA. A unique hop collection brought together with excellent results. This is a well-controlled hop bomb. Seek it out...pick up a growler!

I had this beer on-tap in a big taster glass at Oregon Brewers Festival.

Appearance: light orange hue with a light haze and a moderate effervescence. There's a thin finger of tan foam atop. Quite attractive!

Smell: huge, big tropical fruity aroma! Bodacious! It's citrusy, peachy, pineappley, mangoey, tangeriney -- all the stuff I like! Bam!

Taste: bright and citrusy flavor; a little bit buttery, but that works quite well with the mango and pineapple thing going on in the flavor. I quite like it indeed!

Mouthfeel: medium body, with a nice carbonation and creaminess for the style.

Overall: wonderfully drinkable and, damn, that aroma. One of the best IPAs I've had.

Big hop profile. Very juicy. Orange, melon, and mango. Nice bitterness. Clean. Biscuity malts.
