2.58/5  rDev -25.9%
look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Bomber of unknown date poured into a Brugge pint glass.

This beer has sort of a dirty orange with tinges of ruby color and a thick buttermilk head with a slightly brown edge that leaves a spiderweb of lacing on the sides of the glass. The aroma is mostly malt with a hint of citrus and... pinesol? On second thought, more like lemon-scented floor cleaner.

The taste is muted on the front but with a nice bitter hop on the back, still the transition is rather abrupt and it isn't exactly what I would refer to as a 'floral' ipa - more like citrus pith. Not bad, but not my favorite. Sort of a middle-of-the-road ipa.

The mouthfeel feels like it's going to be thin at first, but comes back with a bit more body - and a sugary coating at the end that is actually making my throat a bit sore.

All in all, it's an ok ipa, but if I'm in the oregon area there are others I'd probably reach for on the shelves. Or maybe I was handed an old bottle.

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.

3.33/5  rDev -4.3%
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.

Pours plenty darker than the typical single IPA color. Solid head with a few long moments of retention. Smells of citrusy and coniferous hops with a solid grainy malt base. The taste introduces a wave of spicy hops not often highlighted by northwest IPAs. Lemony flavors pucker the cheeks while super-roasted malts bring more bitterness. The prominence of the malts is a great change-up for this IPA, but their blackness is somewhat off-putting; it does not mix well with the bold hops. Drip dark-roast coffee notes from the malts fall on overwhelmed taste buds. The spicy and woody hops seem to be this beer's signature, and should take center stage in my opinion. The mouthfeel is just right in the mouth, but the finish is not clean and some malty thickness remains on the palate.

I like this IPA, but it does not stand up to some of the others I've tried during my short visit to Bend, Oregon. If the malts stayed more in the biscuit, grain, and caramel categories I would more ably enjoy every bit of the spice-ridden flavor. Cinnamon, cumin, corainder and other tastes abound in this one, and should not be overshadowed by any more bitterness than the hops themselves naturally offer.

on tap at the brewery

Red amber with near brilliant clarity and just a little bit of fine, tiny bubbles. Smell fruity, reminds me of New Belgium's Hoppy Bock - nice sweet lemon, some mixed berry and bits of grapefruit and other malts. Flavor follows suit with some malt, but then plenty of fruity hops, lemons, grapefruits and cereal grain flavor. Medium bodied with moderate carb and a wet finish. The standout so far at the brewery.
