I'm reading my notes off of a coaster so they are curving a bit. All right. This IPA had an orange/gold color. There was a big creamy head and good lace. The aroma had a nice hop bouquet and was pretty citrusy (grapefruit). It had a big fresh grapefruit taste with some malty sweetness. There was a good hop bite. The finish was bitter, dry and a little astringent. This is an intense beer but it is by no means overpowering and this is from someone who is not a great fan of IPAs. This beer is loaded with good hop flavors and a decent alcohol content. All you need is one (all right maybe two) and you are going to be a bit mellow with a lot of good aftertastes to reflect on.
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 !
