3.8/5 rDev -6.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75
Pours a finger of head on a clearer straw colored body.
The aroma is a nice lemon and grapefruit smell.
The taste has a dry bitterness flavor overall, some lemon and pineapple too. Great balance with the malt.
The texture is fairly crisp with moderate carbonation.
A solid IPA.
Serving type: on-tap

12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass.
A-Pours a clear, gold/amber with less than a finger of fine bubbles.
S-pine, citrus with some floral notes as well.
T-reflective of smell with some spiciness. Nice bitterness with some of the hop characteristics shining through. Maybe some biscuit as well.
M-Fairly light. Nice carbonation. Fades pretty quickly. Easy drinker.
O-A nice IPA that is not quite as complex or powerful as those I like a little more. However, it's a nice drinker and I will buy it from time to time.

12 oz single bottle from Roths Sunnyslope Market in S.Salem. $2.00 Clear burnished orange colour with a nice half inch thick creamy off white head. Nice spicy, fruity hop aromas.Slighly toffee like malts. Taste is better than the aroma, thick caramel/toffee malt flavours vie with nice spicy/piney hops..nice. Nice mouth feel also its quite heavy for style but its very inviting on the tongue and the long lasting hop after taste is welcome. Very nice IPA. This might sound crazy, but I am beginning to see a slight split in IPAs from S.Cali and those from N.Cali,Oregon and WA.
