Pours a hazy orange with a medium off-white head. Looks to be unfiltered. Smells of citrus and yeast. Taste malty up front, with a distinct English style flavor. The hop taste is full, also citrusy tasting, as well as some pine. Bitterness is high, but good for this type of beer. A very fine tasting beer. The alcohol is almost completely hidden by the rich malty and hop flavors. Rich mouthfeel, with good carbonation levels. Quite drinkable for such a high ABV beer. Really, the only downside of this beer is its price (it's quite a bit more expensive than it's competitors)

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 !
