Notes/Commercial Description:
"Our take on the classic India Pale ale style - the favorite craft beer of the Northwest. This amber colored brew is loaded with four different types of hops during the brew day and then gets dry hopped. Our IPA has a huge citrus and pine character with a strong, but refined bitterness."

Served on tap at the Breakside Brewpub.
Appearance cloudy clearly unfiltered. Citrus notes in the aroma.
Taste? Nothing refined about this beer. An attack on the senses. Grapefruit that sucks the cheeks into the mouth. As if they infused the beer with grapefruit rind.
Loved it.
Have to tick down a notch on mouthfeel though. Just doesn't linger well.
All in all a fun experience. I'm glad I had a chance to tic this one off.

Poured a finger of head on a clearer medium straw colored body.
The aroma is bright lemon, grapefruit and orange. A wonderful combination.
The taste is moderate to strong bitterness of grapefruit. It's balanced nicely with the malt.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
A really nice IPA.

Had this tonight at the 10 Barrel Boise IPA Beer Wars and it was certainly in my top 3 of the 16 IPA's on tap tonight.

Orange brew with a nice hop haze... great head and lacing.

Tropical fruity hoppiness punctuated by a big grapefruit zest essence... very balanced light pale malt presence.

Very drinkable with a light body and good carbonation... seems pretty damn fresh.

Pretty decent IPA, more of an in-between style. Not too aggressive with the hops or malts.

Pours a pretty spot on IPA hue, that straw core with light white head, decent retention fades to an average lace.

Smells mostly of mild hops, not too in your face. Some mild citrus, white pepper, and grass notes. The palate is mostly mild malts and medium astringent hops. Not as malted as Ft George Vortex, not as aggressive as most PDX IPAs. Really well balanced IPA meant more as a good pub friendly beverage.
