2.28/5  rDev -44.7%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Served into a tulip glass, bottled in 2010

A - Pours a bright shade of orangish yellow, very hazy with a thick white head of small bubbles.

S - Bursting with a floral/citrus/pine smell. The citrus can almost be green apple like, maybe some orange peel. Somewhat of an alcoholic nose. Can be a little spicy with some fruity ester.

T - Bready and boozy right up front. Very off centered ipa. Rather unpleasant hop flavors with an alcohol warming throughout the whole taste. Has a bit of bitterness that I perceive to be quite astringent and unpleasant.

M - The beer is light to medium bodied. Carbonation is on the low side.

O - Overall I thought the smell was very complex but the flavor was not very appealing to me. A little on the flat side also. Didn't really enjoy it and was not worth the price.

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 !
