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.

A golden-hued beer with a nice white head, decent retention, and some lace. Aromas of grassy & spicy hops but also a faint whiff of rubber. Flavors of evergreen, grass, and light lemon. Generous bitterness without overpowering, medium-light body, long-lasting bitter aftertaste. Overall, better than the ISA but still not great.

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.

Nice IPA. Unfiltered with essential citrus and 80 IBU. Had on tap at the brewery. Definitely worth taking a 6 pack home.

Growler at Fred Meyer got half blown keg half new keg. Last pint out of the growler had the most sediment I've ever seen from a commercial beer. Overall good value Growler only ran ten bucks.

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.
