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.

Serving type: on-tap

4.34/5  rDev +8.2%
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!

Serving type: growler

I wasn't planning on stopping by, but while walking along the HR waterfront, I noticed Pfriem just there, and on my way back, I had to stop in to check them out.

Clear golden yellow, dense white head, nice retention and lacing. Nose has a nice crisp hop oil character, with pine oil, citrus zest, pear, orange blossom honey and guava. This is very nice! There is a touch of malt, but it blends well with the fruity hop flavors. Palate is decent, I feel like there's too much mineral character that gets in the way of the hops. Moderate bitterness, there's all the fruity complexity of the nose with a moderate mineral char- I wonder if they use simcoe hops? Sweetness is mild, palate is medium light and finish is pleasingly bitter and oily with a little mineral character. Nice stuff.

on-tap @ the brewery in hood river

Served in a lovely 16oz non-shaker pint (bought one to bring home) - a light straw-golden body, clear and clean with a light ring of white foam. Crisp and hoppy, light citrus, lemon, crackery malt, some belgian yeast characteristics. Very refreshing.
