Pours a slightlty hazy deep bronze with a 1 finger deep off white head from the beautiful black ceramic swing top bottle. A slight oily viscosity (sp) look is there,
S: Grapefruit hops & breadyness, very nice!
T: Intense grapefruitty hops & piney hops up front, followed a nice doughy bready/malt presence. A little warming alcohol creeps in as it warms. Finishes hoppy, warming & slightlty malty
MF: Low carbonation, medium-bodied & almost oily from all the hops!
Pretty drinkable for the the abv & crazy hops profile, that just begs you to drink more. Still a overpriced by a few bucks IMO, one of the better offerings from this brewery that I've had so far. Some day I must visit Oregon!

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
