16oz : pint glass

Poura clear golden yellow with a foamy white head.

Citrusy, lightly piney aroma and taste.

Fairly standard, medium body, foamy carbonation.

Nothing ground breaking, just a very well done IPA. Something I would definitely enjoy again.

Thanks to rudzud, surprise date on the bottom of the can, 2/11/14, not the freshest.

Pours a decent slight creamy fizzy 1/2 finger head that fades at a fair rate, very light lacing, golden honey orange color.

Nose nice citrus, little orange and a mild creamy note brings a creamscicle like aroma, mild generic fruit and touch of apricot like, hint of a nice juicy malt base, touch of candied orange peel. It has a decent hop aroma but flashes of it fading, perhaps not as fresh as it should be.

Taste brings a decent malt base at first, caramel, little creamy, toasty reddish malt and faint toffee note with little sweetness but not much. Then hops, again citrus and generic fruit but not a ton of hops. Little candied orange, mild orange creamscicle again, touch of zest and grapefruit flesh which comes out more as it goes. Hint of resin. Finish is dry but a touch sticky, fair bitterness, little grapefruit fresh and orange zest, mild fruit, and a little sweet caramel malt.

Mouth is med bod, little creamy, nice carb.

Overall decent, nice malt profile but doesn't play as well with the hops, which seems like they were better when fresh but decent hop profile.

Bought in Portland, Oregon

A&S: Lively transparent tangerine colored beer. Head pours a little less than a finger, but retains in a thin layer and leaves a speckling of lacing. Lots of citrus in the aroma, but not super powerful. Some maltyness.

T&M: Similar to the aroma lots of citrus more of a malty backbone present than the aroma would lead you to believe. Extremely drinkable, surprisingly smooth. On the high side of medium bodied and the low side of medium carbonation.

Overall: Another fine IPA from Oregon. I have a little beef with majority of the breweries out there being so IPA centered, however I find it hard to complain when they are great tasting beers. Not mind blowing, but pretty good... pretty .... pretty.. good

Received as an extra in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip. 16oz can.

A - Poured a very nice crystal clear dark golden hue with a one finger creamy white head that faded to leave a nice light lacing and a thin blanket with a fluffy halo.

S - Aromas of lightly bitter pine, citrus peel (orange, grapefruit), super light malts. This thing is mostly wonderful citrus notes.

T - Taste is note quite as good as the nose. Bit more malts, light caramel and malty sweetness, nice light pine, good citrus (though a touch generic) with some good grapefruit rind.

M - Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated. Wish it was a bit more as it feels just a little watery.

O - Overall, a solid IPA offering from the west coast. Quite tasty and very easy drinking. Solid.
