A: Poured a burnt orange color with good carbonation leaving a solid white cap with some serious stamina. Wow. I am five minutes into this bomber and a lot of white bubbles and lacing are still present.

S: A big breadiness on the nose with underlying citrus and pine.

T: The malt comes to town with a nice breadiness upfront a good dose of orange peel, grapefruit appear initially and persist throughout. This beer seems simple on taste but good. The finish is mildly bitter, moderately slick but not oily per se.

M: Medium bodied, well carbonated. This beer is balanced. The grain bill is just as big as the hop bill here but yet the IBUs still shine on.

O: A very nice single IPA! Recommend, yes, especially for anyone who likes a bit grit and chewiness in their IPA

22oz bottle from Roths Sunnyslope Market in S.Salem. $3.99 pours a slightly hazy burnt orange with a rough and tumble bubbly off white head. Very healthy hop aromas to this one,citricfruity an juicy hop i am assuming this is fresh! Taste is the same as the aroma but with a strong burnt toffee backing very good. Good palate does not let the beer get boring. Overall an excellent PNW IPA

pours a light copper orange/wheat color, thick dry head dies down to a persistent layer across the surface, moderate lacing throughout the glass. a tad bit of haze, but not much. hop forward smell, hints of malt, and drinks the way it smells. very clean, simple ipa. nothing terribly fancy going on here, but what's been done is done pretty well. ends with a sweet, dry finish. i'd like it just a bit more chewy, but it's by no means bad the way it is. not terribly memorable, but overall a solid B+, with points for not throwing any curve balls at me.

Saw this one at John's Market and decided to pick up on up. It poured a slightly hazy orange into the Pilsner glass. It has a 2 finger head that dropped off fairly quick. Left some nice lacing on the sides

The smell had alot of citrus and piney notes. It was a pretty sweet tasting IPA and had decent balance as you could not tell the 90 ibu's as it wasn't as aggressive as ibu typically would give at that range. Soft on the palate as it left a tiny mark on the roof of the mouth. Overall a solid IPA from down in the Eugene area.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Served from a can into a nonic pint glass

A- Poured a hazy bright golden color with a big fluffy white head with tight bubbles that leaves big clingy lace

S- Big piney hop aroma, lots of citrus, big astringency, and big sweet malts. Very aromatic

T- Huge sweet caramel malt flavor, some big floral hop character, citrus hop and kind of a sweet orange marmalade flavor as well, and finishes with lots of nondescript bitterness.

M- Pretty smooth mouthfeel, effervescent carbonation, dry finish

O- Great aroma on this beer, lots of nondescript bitterness, astringency, and malt character. This is good as it is, I wonder how fresh it is though.

A: cloudy deep gold pour with half inch head.

S: pine and apricot.

T: good but not overwhelming bitterness. Tastes of grapefruit. Malt is understated which is good. Does this beer have a little wheat in it?

M: very nice. If I could duplicate this at home, I would. Laces well down the glass. Carbonation is typical for an IPA.

O: a typical NW IPA. Except for color. They have to use carapils or wheat to keep the color and get this mouthfeel. First taste of Hop Valley. I like it.

Serving type: on-tap

I enjoyed this beer, thanks to ahalloin for bringing this one to share, thanks Tony.

The beer has a very nice sudsy IPA apperance with plenty of lacing, and some nice head. Semi hazy orange color.

The smell has a bright hoppy smell, a touch of tropical fruits and nice hop resins, maybe with a touch of sweetness. The taste is quite balanced, maybe over balanced to a hophead like me who really likes a hop edge, if you know what I mean. Lots of well integrated hop favors perfect with light biscuit malts and slight sugar. Some nice tempered citrus from the hops.

The feel is again sudsy with nice body. Great feel for an ipa, and the overall impression is great.
