Reviewed from notes. Poured from fancy looking hinged-top 750 mL bottle into a Cigar City pint glass.
A: Hazy copper to bronze color, a half-finger of white head. Medium visible carbonation mixes with a smattering of hop floaters.
S: Bready malts with some caramel character in front of grassy and pine hops - but the hop character is lower than expected.
T: Sweet malts, again with a bit of caramel, and citrus rind and pine resin hops. There is a marked bitterness and dryness at the end.
M: Medium body, good carbonation sensation. The alcohol is noticeable but doesn't get to the point of feeling boozy during the drink.
O: I think this could have used more dry-hopping and less bittering hops. It's not my favorite, but acceptable.

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 !
Serving type: growler
