Cloudy bright orange-yellow with a good head.
Smells absolutely great, very floral and fruity (blueberries?) and hoppy.
Taste is really nice. A powerful blend of hops with a sturdy base of malt. Ripe citrus and herbal notes. Luscious. Finishes with that same residual sweetness present in many Rogue beers, reminiscent of Dead Guy for me again. Alcohol fairly hidden.
Mouthfeel smooth and solid, a powerful beer.
The only drawback is the price - I think this was $16. A great beer, but I can't afford to pay that for it.

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 !
