I really enjoyed this beer. It taste way lighter then 7.2% feels like a session IPA with all the taste of a IPA

Beautiful beer, true to form, but unique, with a technique and execution you come to expect from Pfriem. I live in a world where this is my "go to" IPA at the supermarket? Spoiled. I'll enjoy this beer til the end of days.

Bottled on 07 30 15. Elegantly designed 500mL bottle served in a tapered pint glass. Beer is pale golden in color, with great clarity, and forms a really nice white head. Really nice green, floral aroma. The main thing I notice about the taste of this beer is that it's really smooth drinking -- I don't know the actual IBU count, but there's not a lot of bitterness here. There are, however, a lot of piny, citrusy, and tropical fruit (passionfruit/pineapple) flavors here. I expected more DIPA-type bitterness from a 7.2% IPA from an Oregon brewery.

Great flavor; great beer.

Pfriem was the buzz-brewery a few months back and I'm still working through some of the standards, this being the least enjoyable. Not sure of the hops on this one, but a bit big-bodied, dirty hop profile, spicy. Just OK - like the blonde and belgian IPA's a bit more

500 mL bottle poured into a pint glass.

Appearance - Clear golden body. Medium white head.

Smell - Orange citrus. Cracker malt. Like popcorn. Nice.

Taste - Sweet citrus orange. Lightly sweet pale malt. Grain dominates the flavor as it warms.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Soft carbonation.

Overall - Delicious and well made. Great flavor.
