3.6/5 rDev -12.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
P: 1 Pint, 6 FL OZ. brown bottle into tulip glass...art with a cool pic of a pelican readily found in the wild combing the oregon & WA coastline...
A - Pours semi-cloudy golden, with a nice white head...- some good lacing.
S - Hops and lots of sweet citrus - some orange & grapefruit tones...also some bread, burnt toast perhaps, with a touch of cinamon spice...
T - Smooth, great hop kick at the top, followed by malts and spice (from the alcohol)some citrus, then ending with more pine-like spices...a suprisingly dry finish...
M - The carbination is good There's a good fullness. Present, but not 'too' much fruity/sweet flavors...The final pine/spice balances the beer out wonderfully, although the VERY dry aftertaste threw me...I was expecting a fruitier/hoppier finish...
O - This one good, but not as 'GREAT' as so many others claim...Not to 'poo-poo' the Bros, but 'c-mon...OK...I agree this is still a great example of a NW American IPA, but there are far better ones out 'here' than the hype of this one...I just didn't like the over-dry ending notes...perhaps better on tap, eh?!...Chasin' Cheers :~)

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25
Glass: Nonic pint glass
Appearance: a clear dark yellow with a large rocky white lasting head.
Aroma: a citrusy hop aroma.
Taste: was light sweetness at first with orange citrus notes and the finish was a moderate to heavy hops bitterness.
Mouthfeel: comes into the mouth light and thin and almost seems to thicken while it sits on the tongue. carbonation was pretty average.
A good IPA, I really enjoyed the flavor and mouth feel, although I felt the aroma was lacking.
