Overall a great blonde IPA. The initial appearance was very pale and clear, smell a bit low, but the taste was very crisp and hoppy: dry, clean, and bitter.

A: A very pale yellow. Almost like a light mass produced beer, but with a darker yellow color. Very clear.

S: Smell, you could definitively tell this was an IPA, but nothing special.

T: Very 'thin' on the malt flavor, tasted like a very dry 2-row beer. It had a very nice crisp bitter hop flavor, and very drinkable.

M: A bit smooth, but thin. Overall, for a Blonde, it was great.

Overall: I really liked this beer, I am sad I cannot get this locally where I live. It was good enough that I would go a bit out of my way to get this on tap next locally next time I am in Oregon.

look: 5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

A: Poured a nice transparent, golden-yellowish color with great carbonation leaving behind a huge foamy white cap with good head retention and nice lacing

S: Wow. Big and bright floral, leafy green hops with a dash of citrus

T: Initial dash of coriander/orange peel with some nice floral hops, little bit more citrus and some grains. A light bit of peppering spice warmth comes in for a brief moment but the finish is all hay, grass, flowers and a light bitterness with a dash of coriander and orange peel

M: Very light and refreshing, lots of taste here, easy to drink.

O: A hot summer day? Gimme a growler of this!
