Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
A - Pours like a good IPA should. Orangish and unfiltered with a very nice head and even better lacing. Good looking beer.
S - Huge grapefruit and tangerine oily hop profile that blends well with an underlying sweetness to make a great smell beer.
T - Big citris kick, followed by a bit of oily pine. Breaks into a very nice malt before finishing bitter again. Despite the big hops at the finish, there is no descenable dryness, which was a very pleasant surprise.
M - Top notch. Full and round, without being cloying or harsh at the finish.
D - For a beer that is 9+ abv, this goes down very easy.

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 !
