3.8/5  rDev +5%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

The bottle indicates 5 hops and 5 malts in the mash tun...really interesting description. It pours really dark orange..the malts totally create this color. It really looks nice with a very sticky looking white head. The smell well maybe its not fresh and is is almost smells like nothing but I bet fresh this had some hop forward scent. The taste is great...very balanced and the bitterness is not overwhelming and the citrus notes are tame but there. The malts taper the stickyness of the beer and create a smooth after note that makes me crave more. Almost sweet to the taste. But overall a very tasty IPA that has a bitterness that mixes well and does indicate a 6.9% brew. The mouthfeel is sticky and resinous. Lots of hops cause this. But its filtered and I imagine that unfiltered this would be a really full feeling to the mouth. Overall this is another solid beer from Fire Mountain. I would say that they are 3 for 3 with me on their beers. This, the first IPA I have tried. They know what they are doing but if I had this fresher than this, I bet it would be more hop forward. There is nothing on the bottle that indicates a born on date. There are some numbers on the bottom of the bottle but they do not resemble a date of any type. However, despite this fact, this is a solid Oregon brewed IPA. I would try it, and for that matter anything else offered by these guys. Nice work!!!

look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Huge head more than half the glass. Lacings all over the place.
Smell is pine and sweet malts.
Taste is sweet and piney bitterness, Malt bomb, with plenty of grapefruit hoppiness.
Mouthfeel is full, lots of carbonation.
Overall like the biggest Double Pale Ale you ever had. Head is incredible, just keeps surging with each pour. Lacing is relentless. Don't know how to classify this beer but it is amazing. Tastes great too.

Poured a clear burnt orange into an impy nonic with a large blooming slight off white head that left alot of pond scum behind as it settled very slowly into a frothy mass.Big caramel/biscuit malt aromas mixed with orange andpine hops,the hops are not big and in your face bit it's a pleasant enough nose.Deeply malty up front on the palate with a decent amount of sweetness the hops are more herbal orange-like in the finish,not a bitter citric bomb.A smooth creamy feel is another good point to this beer,it's well crafted but not overly hopped,I will say the malt profile is very good.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

650ml bomber picked up from Belmont Station in Portland, OR.

Pours a deep amber-golden hue, with a fine, but noticeably bubbled head of white. Some streaming fine carbonation. Minimal lacing. Body looks solid, however: thicker than its 6.9% would suggest. Not bad.

Pronounced, pungent and relatively robust pine characters on the nose dominate. Some slippery, grainy, almost savoury malt characters give a touch of depth underneath, but the oily, resiny pine is potent—perhaps a touch too much, and it ends up being something of a one-note aroma.

Taste is similar. Pronounced graininess gives a rustic English quality to the brew, while the pine really dominates the mid to back, leaving a cutting resin on the palate with really quite intense and unbalanced bitterness. No, to be fair, it's not overtly bitter, but the quality of the bitterness is harsh, meaning it feels more unpalatable than it is.

Feel is light but smooth: a point in its favour.

Overall, I really should give it more than "average", but it's a pretty mediocre and "average" IPA in my opinion. There's not a lot of class or art to its construction, and there are a stack of others out there that I feel are better.

Bomber served cold into a goblet.

Bogart is a hazy amber color with thick white head. It settles slowly and leaves some great lacing behind.

Aroma is hoppy but not huge or over the top. The pine and grapefruit are probably the most forward.

Flavor is similar in chacter with good balance and a nice hop profile. There is a really pleasant sweetness with honey and tropical fruit.

Mouthfeel is very smooth and perfectly carbonated. Bottle conditioning done right.

Overall a really enjoyable NW IPA.

Served from bottle, bought in Oregon. Drank on 7/6/2011 (going through older notes).

A: Amber, pretty clear. Medium head and retention. Darker than expected for an IPA.

S: Caramel; candy sugar or fruit-flavored candy.

T: Both, bitter and malty, but balanced between the two. Caramel sweetness. Apples / fruit esters.

M: Fairly heavy. Smooth, but I wish it was drier.

O: Nothing too special, and too malty for my tastes in IPA's. Definitely not bad, but it was the third Oregonian IPA in a row that we tried and definitely the least interesting of the bunch.

22oz bottle into tulip snifter.

Pours a hazy golden orange with a thick, billowy bone-white head.

Big citric hops, with a light pine kick and a light biscuit malt backing.

Taste is citric and bitter pine hops mixed with a slight biscuit note.

A medium-light body with active carbonation.

An enjoyable IPA, pleasant mix of hop notes and malts.

Poured into a Gulden Draak tulip. Pours a medium to dark coppery orange amber, one finger fine white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of herbal hops and light citrus, light malt. Pleasant light sweet malt, citrus, pine and light fruit followed by a hop kick and rather abrupt finish. Hops are nice and well integrated, but could use a bit more of a solid malt body to my taste. Light to medium bodied. A pleasant, but not remarkable IPA.

22oz bottle poured into a large mug

Pours coppery orange with a medium head. Slightly cloudy. Smell is mild and malty with a little hoppy goodness. But I still have a cold.

Taste is a lot of grapefruit rind bitterness. Some malty goodness.

Mouthfeel is thick and slightly gritty. Overall, not bad at all.

Picked this up at the COOP tonight.. enjoying some good music and beer while working on some stuff for the day job.... Poured into my small CC goblet... decent retention and nice lacing... the brew is pretty clear orange.

The hop aromas seem a bit subdued.... nice citrus, but are not really out front as I would expect... pale malts are pretty pronounced and seem to squash the hops quite a bit.

Good bitterness throughout... again some pithy citrus hoppiness manifests but never really delivers.... instead it is hammered by the overall bitterness.... the finish drops off quickly leaving pale malts with a touch of toast that melts after a while into some grapefruit zest... but that zest is there just barely.

Body is too thick for the style... carbonation is nice, but more is needed to carry the heaviness...

This brew seems to me like a DIPA that is lacking the abrasive qualities... For a "DIPA", amp up the hop nose and flavor... for a regular "PNW IPA", lower the body a bunch and still more flavor and aroma hops are needed.

Overall, this is a pretty okay brew... It just needs some guidance.

4/3/3/3/3.5

amber, the amount of red in the color actually was a bit suprising as it actually had a deep ruby almost hue to it. Lots and lots of carbonation

Very fresh aroma coming off of this one and I mean very fresh, slight balance to it as it warmed though which surprised me. some form of grain serving as the back here as it was just evident in an earthy sort of way right under the explosion of hops. sticky nugget like hops that was like candy it was soo good. It was just a nice full flavor, nothing extreme, nothing mellowed, nothing watered down. A good back of grain was easily apparent way underneath and this is what was built upon with layer after layer of pine nugget like freshness.
