Enterprise, Oregon, Eh? Well, whatever. Jesus was from Nazareth so I guess I can't put down po-dunk towns too much...

Prior to opening this one I held it up to the light and noticed what seemed like an abnormal amount of yeast at the bottom for an IPA. This beer is also very brown in color for an IPA, rather than the red/copper that I've become accustomed to. After pouring the whole 12oz bottle into a pilsner glass it had a nice solid white/tan head, but overall looked more like an Amber Ale or even a Hefeweizen.

Nothing worth mentioning regarding its smell.

The initial taste was fruity and very yeasty, giving way to the strong, bitter hoppiness to be expected from an India Pale Ale, and then becoming sour as the flavors fade.

PROS: I found this beer to be relatively easy to drink despite the hoppiness and 6.9-alcohol percentage. It also never made me insanely thirsty for a glass of water or create an illogical craving for potato chips as IPA's will often do--definitely a plus. A solid IPA.

3.28/5  rDev -13.2%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

12oz : tulip

Clear, burnt orange with a thick, foamy off white head.

Herbal, piney, balanced with a malty, caramel malt backbone.

Medium+ body, mild foamy carbonation.

A decent tasting beer overall, but doesn't meet my expectations as an IPA as the hops seemed muted and the malt more prominent than I'd like.

on-tap @ Quinn's, pre mutual benefit

Somewhat of a classic PNW IPA, often pushed further down the food chain by flashier competition with more refined product. Still, you can do a lot worse for yourself than kicking back a few pints of this. Body is a bit heavy for me as a result of the strong malting, but this IPA definitely packs a bitter citrus-rind hop punch as well. Drained a few pints and paid a small tribute to this old-school (by craft brewery terms) IPA

3.95/5  rDev +4.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: golden amber, mostly clear with visible carbonation. Sustaining thin foamy head, some lacing.

S: damp, little wet cardboard, some grapefruit notes in there as well

T: carbonation and light bitterness starts the beer. There are some dark fruit hints, but not much more than that, as well as maybe a bit of caramel. The citrus notes are present through but take over with grapefruit and some lemon hints in the end.

M: mildly dry throughout, earthy, and a light pull lingers for a while; not overpowering

O: a very like able IPA. Only thing preventing it being higher rated is the bitterness leans a little on the sour side for my tastes.

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

Appearance has a hazy orange color supporting a fair dissipating head leaving fair lace. Smell has a nice balance with the citric hops and sweet malt. Taste having a bold upfront flavor of an IPA with the piney, grapefruit flavor with the sweet caramel malt. Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation.
