3.93/5  rDev -4.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from tap at 1702 in Tucson into glass. Pous a clear/golden with thick head. Look is very wimpy.
Nice hop aromas, some bready malts, but mostly high apha hops
Taste is very bitter pungent hop, bready malt, and more hops...
its way too bitter to be ejoyable for me.
Its a good IPA, just not amazing. Way to bitter, way over malted, but they seem to balance each other out...in a very hop forward way. Did i mention bitter hops?

Serving type: on-tap

Got a growler on the way out of Portland, bring it on the plane !

Light orange, clear IPA. Nice 1/2 inch white foamy head poured into my 10 barrel medium side snifter.

Mild bite from the IPA, nice mild grapefruit, hoppy flavor, very pleasant to drunk, even though it is over 9 %.

Mouthfeel seems 'bout right, a little malty goodness when you 'foam' it up in your mouth.

I would drink this every time at the airport, a nice find there , will probably add it in the cart now, from time to time. Drink it !
