Country Boy IPA was my fourth Everybody's beer and my first to file in the "ho-hum" category. The beer tasted tart and citric with a green herbal front. The aroma was similarly grassy with a parallel raw graininess. Country Boy is goldenrod yellow with sluggish carbonation, no particular head, and a mild array of lace that quit at one-third down the pint. The menu suggested a lemongrass element that I'd concur with.

Idiosyncratic, and a touch disappointing in comparison to Everybody's other beers. I suppose I was expecting more than adequate, which is all this IPA attains.

Blonde in appearance. Unusual for an IPA. Looks like a tripel. Head moderate and subdued.
Very pleasant lemony citrus taste that doesn't overpower. Not a hop bomb if that's what you're looking for. Just a nice sessionable beer that is smooth and tastes good.
Note: Initial taste a pint at the brewery at White Salmon but waited until I cracked the to-go growler to make an evaluation under a more relaxed environment.
I thoroughly enjoyed it at the brewery and am not disappointed that I snagged a growler on the way out.
A noble effort.

Pours a half finger of head on a cloudy straw colored body.
The aroma is pine... that's it, but it's good.
The taste is a moderate pine and grapefruit bitterness.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
It's a straightforward but solid IPA.

Love this IPA, have it on tap each time I am out to the brewpub.

- Light cloudy straw-yellow brew with a foamy white head, which settles with some large bubbling and leaves lace all about the glass.

- Lovely light bready and grainy aroma with a light spicy hop, and certainly more-so a citrus fruity hop. Lots of resinous pine and herbal notes as well.

- This is bitter, and in a good way. Light malts, no sweetness to overpower the bready grain and wonderful grassy hops. Soft honey, biscuit, and pine hops dominate. Very good.

- They have managed to create a medium bodied IPA without being thick and heavy on the sweet side of things. A wonderfully chewy feel, and an IBU bursting dryness which compliments the feel very well.

- This is a fantastic IPA and is one in which would amaze me if I brewed it.. and I would certainly live on this beer, and make it a flagship brew. To me, it almost fits my taste in IPA's perfectly... and it is my favorite style. Truly refined, perfected, and delicious.

Hazy golden amber with two plus fingers of off white head. Average retention but a good amount of lace. Smell is floral hops and bready malt.
Taste is bitter piney and citrus hops. A good amount of bready malts tries to support the hop character but the hops win.
Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Finish is dry and bitter.
Overall a good example of the style. With no freshness date it is hard to tell if this is what it should be. For now I enjoyed it. I am looking forward to visiting the brewpub in the near future.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden amber with a massive white head filling a third of the glass. Good retention and lots of lacing. Aroma of mild bready malt, orange and lemon citrus, grassy hops. Flavor of light biscuit malt, lemon and grapefruit citrus, moderate citrus and grassy hops. Finishes semi-dry with a pleasant citrus hop bitterness. Medium bodied with a nice mouth feel. A nice, well balanced IPA with an interesting malt body that supports the hops nicely but does not have a distinct malt flavor. Nothing really stands out, but the balance and flavors are quite satisfying and refreshing. Just now available in cans.

12 oz can from "Lifesource" in Salem. Liked the simple white and blue artwork. $1.59 Pours a slightly hazy light orange colour with a large frothy and thick white head. Veritable smorgasbord of hop aromas in this baby! Floral,resin,bit of pineapple,green onion,lemon zest..very nice. Taste is like it says very citrusy way more on the lemon/yellow grapefruit side..nice stuff . Good mouth feel its well carbonated yet smooth going down. A very good IPA.THis will be a good hot weather IPA.

First had: on tap at their brewpub

Hmm, two AIPAs on the menu, eh? Ok. Well, I think this one is slightly better than the other option (Goodwill) as it's a bit more well balanced. Pour was a slightly hazy golden yellow with a thin white head. Smell of fresh hops over a standard malt base. Dry and crisp on the palate, citrusy tones, some pine, well-hopped, with an underlying sweetness for a good sense of balance. Light-medium body, and pretty easily drinkable.

On tap at the brewpub.

The beer pours a slightly hazy gold color with good head retention and lacing. The nose is pretty much textbook NW IPA, showcasing dry citrus, light honey, a hint of earthiness and light pepper. The flavor profile replicates the nose, though the beer was actually a bit more bitter than I was expecting (80 IBU's according to the beer list). The beer definitely leans to the dry side, though I found there to be a sufficient amount of malt to buoy the dry bitter finish in this beer. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, and the beer had a fairly long, rather bitter finish. Drinkability was quite good in this beer... it was tasty and very easy to drink (much better than the DIPA I also sampled here).

A nice IPA that I could see myself ordering again. Unforatunately, there are typically much better options on offer at most beer venues in the area, so I'm not sure that will happen any time soon.

Either I'm growing less picky or I was really tired after a day on the slopes. Or, maybe even, this beer is actually good. On tap at Altitude in Welches.

Mostly clear, thin off white head, good retention and lace. The nose is fresh, fruity, grapefruit, citrus and some pine with some green hop character. Mild husky, grainy malt char present but sweetness is low. The grassiness is not something I typically care for, but in this beer, it's low enough not to be distracting. The palate similar to the nose, opening with a big, pungent citrus hop bitterness with moderate hop flavor as well. The grassy notes of the nose are not as noticeable here. The malt character, again, is husky and not particularly sweet. Bitter, pungent and resiny on the finish, this beer is quite pleasing on the palate. Recommended.
