Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: RedDiamond on 07-13-2007

"Our IPA is made with generous additions of Cascade, Simcoe and Palisade hops throughout the brewing, fermentation and conditioning phases, balanced with heaps of organic pale malt. We designed this to not rip your taste buds off your tongue, but rather vigourously stimulate them and your palate into a lupulin-ecstacy of pleasure. During the cross-country truck trip our brewery made to find it's home in Astoria, it was nearly scattered to the cornfields of Nebraska by a tornado. We try to capture some of nature's intensity in every pint."

Had this beer on a lark in a Portland bar. Really excellent IPA. Hops and sweetness are well balanced.

Got a can from my friend.
Canned back in December of 2014.
Not waiting around on the review, here's the rest.
This was poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a hazy bronzed semi-burnt orange color with a good one finger white foamy head that dissipated gently. Light lacing graced the sides of the glass.
The smell had a crisp and yet semi-sharp citrus and piney-ness.
The taste took the citrus and the pine and combined subtly and gently. A pure crisp citrus aftertaste overtook my palate and came about to a dry finish.
The mouthfeel sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed a bit weaker but I just figured it had smoothed out due to the canning date.
Overall, yeah, I really dug this one. I'd definitely come back to it.
