look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Served from the bottle into an imperial pint glass.

A- Poured a dark reddish brown color with big soapy off-white head that left cascading and dense lace.

S- Big spicy notes, oatmeal, malt sweetness, citric and piney hops. Does have a strong malt aroma but some nice hoppy notes. Reminds me more of an English style IPA than an American style IPA.

T- Big oatmeal, sweet caramel malt, some citric and piney hop notes, some spicy notes. Fairly high bitterness and some astringency on the finish.

M- Watery mouthfeel, soft carbonation, and lighter bodied.

O- The mouthfeel was a little watery and the malt profile a little too dominant to stand up to modern day American IPAs.

On tap at the brewpub in Sisters.

Deep medium-dark red-amber with a fairly durable head and a ample streaks of sticky lacing.

Aroma: Herbal and floral hops. Soe citrus too.

Flavor: Medium strong herbal hop punch with building bitterness partially reduced by the malts.

Feel: Medium body with appropriate crisp carbonation.

O: recommended as a subtlely spicy IPA.

22 picked up in Northern California ... Pours with a nice off white head and good lacing... the brew is crystal clear amber... probably too dark for an IPA..

Nose shows toasty malts and piney hops that don't quite keep up.

Good bitterness up front but the hops die back quick when hit with the maltiness... sorta lingering tropical fruity hoppiness on the finish...

Decent brew for sure... A bit muddy... the brewer needs to separate the malt and hops to make it more enjoyable.

damn good ipa. don't ruin it by NOT pouring a big ass head or by serving it freezing cold. leave it at room temp and then give it <5min in fridge, then just dump it in a glass and smell it while the head reduces.... great beer. was an a or a+ when poured at home in a pint glass and a c or c- when poured for me in a stupid chilled glass with NO head at the brewpub place in sisters.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 22oz bomber into a clear pint glass. Other half of bottle went into my son's glass. No freshness data on bottle. Paid $4.99 at Capital Market. Went looking for a new IPA to try. Probably look again tomorrow.

A-Poured a clear amber hue. Much darker than most IPAs I have had, except for ones with rye. A vigorous pour produced a about a two finger head that receded quickly and left only modest lacing. Appearance seemed awry since not even close to photo on brewery's website. If it appeared like the photo I would rate it 4.5 for appearance. I prefer lighter colored IPAs.

S-Malt, or malts (6 were used according to website), dominate the aroma. Not okay for an IPA, especially from the NW. Hops should be featured, but there is not enough to get beyond the butterscotch and caramel malt notes. Too sweet smelling, again from the malt bill.

T-Better than expected after the appearance and smell apprehensions. Adequately hoppy and bitter with a slight after taste. Caramel malts feature strongly in the taste. Expected more of a hop bomb at 82 IBU's for a 6% ABV, but the bitterness is not too assertive. Just not enough flavor from the hops. Were they in the kettle too long? Dry hopped?

M-Smooth and well balanced. Nice carbonation level.

O-This went down easily enough, but it joins the ranks of the increasing plethora of unimpressive IPAs.

22 oz bottle from Roths Sunnyside Store in S.Salem. $4.59 Nice darkish burnt orange/amber with an attractive coffee n cream coloured head..thats pretty thick ans staya around. Pretty strong malt driven aromas..but the piney hops show through. Heavy malty/nutty tastes then a burst of spruce tip..lingering bitterness..that is somehow mellow. Pretty Ok on the palate..thickish but still drinkable.. I liked this..then i do prefer thicker maltier IPAs

Thanks again, Gil.

A: The pour is a dark orange/amber color with a finger of white head.

S: This thing is damn sweet. Toffee, caramel, and brown sugar are all prominent aromas. There's a bit of floral hops and perhaps some citrus peel. A little bit of bread as well.

T: The flavor isn't quite as sweet, thankfully. Citrus peel and pine hop flavors with a touch of bitterness. There is still a fair amount of toffee and caramel with some toasted bread.

M: Medium bodied with a medium carbonation.

O: Not sure what it is with all these PNW IPAs, but they've been just mediocre at best.
