Appearance is very clear, pale gold, with a thin white head that is typical of an American IPA. To style to say the least. Lacing is moderate and noticeable. Aroma is what you'd expect and want from a west coast IPA: Lots of pine with grapefruit and other light citrus, with a helping of tropical fruit, such as mango. These aromas yield to malt aromas as it warms, and quite rapidly. There's some white bread crust in there as well, so the malt is going to play a role in the taste as well I'd assume. Overall, aroma is very light and zesty. Pretty awesome. The malt is lighter than anticipated, mostly French bread on the front end with lemon zest and some tart yeast flavor in the transition. The end is not very bitter at all. It's somewhat nutty, piney, a little barkish, and just bitter enough to remind you it's a hop forward beer. This is the least bitter IPA I think I've had. Which is actually pleasant, since I get more of the citrus and pine flavors with the void in bitterness. The feel is middling if slightly viscous and the finish is decidedly dry.

This is a great IPA. I wish I had the opportunity to have this more often. I also wish I had the prices of Oregon beer stores. If only I could move there and keep my current salary...

This is a amazing IPA. Very fresh and tasty. Picked up a 22 oz bottle at Portland Int.
While in town I wanted to visit this brewery but ran out of time so I was stoked to see this in the airport.

Poured a cloudy amber hue.
Smelled of a light citrus
Mouth feel was perfect. Not to light and not to heavy.
Taste is amazing. Light carbonation really hits you with the citrus. A little bit of pine finishing with a nice bitterness
This is one of the best balanced IPAs I ever have had. A must have in the Portland area.

Hopworks IPA pours a clear honey orange with a large, just off white head that is dense and bubbly. Head has good retention and leaves moderate lacing. Aroma contains a bunch of resin, along with juicy orange and grapefruit, just a hint of light bready malts.

Taste starts with a bit of bread then bitter grapefruit and rindy orange, with a juicy orange and sweet tangerine finish. Fruity and resinous aftertaste. Feel and carbonation are pretty average for a beer like this, carbonation maybe just a touch more than usual, and both work very well along with a bit of creamy/breadiness.
