look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

L: Crystal clear gold with tinges of amber a thin head on top. Decent lacing and very little carbonation activity.

A: Floral hop aroma of grapefruit rind, peach and some pine with a clean, nutty maltiness backing it. Classic Amercian IPA.

T: A smooth bitterness upfront, moves into hop flavors of grapefruit and peach with some spicy and piney earthiness. The malt brings in fantastic balance to the hop flavors, helping give a backbone to the beer and really increase the drinkability. A medium body provides a great base for the flavors and the hops and slightly bisciuty malt flavors linger on with a dry finish.

Overall, a top-tier Northwest IPA. The flavors are bold and perfectly balanced, and the beer is unbelievably drinkable. This is a must try.

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
