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

Pours a light amber. Minimal white head, dissipates pretty quickly, but laces the edges nicely as I sip.

Nose is pretty light. Straw and some grassy/floral hops.

Flavour is alright, but nothing special. Bitter more than anything else, but not overwhelmingly so. Crisp and drinkable. Medium-light body and appropriate carbonation. The curve starts before flattening and blunting somewhat about 80% of the way up the hill. Heading towards spicy floral and tropical hops before abruptly ending more earthy. Finish is long and slightly pithy bitter.

Crisp and drinkable, but doesn't really stand out from the pack.

12oz can purchased at the north Spokane Total Wine for $1.99. The label says Bend, but for some reason I thought this came from Bellingham (maybe thinking of Wander…?). No obvious freshness date. BTW, I’d planned to drink this later in the week (NBS perhaps?) but had to make room in my fridge because of the porch bombing @beertunes carried out with an arsenal’s worth of goodies from and near Whatcom County.

Poured a chill-hazed orangey amber color, with a decent sized, beige colored head. Spotty lace.

Spicy but restrained hop aroma, of the pine and grapefruit variety. The nose is a little weak, really, at least in terms of amplitude, but it hits the right notes for all it’s mutedness.

Much like the aroma, this tastes like a potentially good IPA, but it’s oddly restrained. The sticker on the side of the can indicates TW received it on February 28, 2015, but I’m wondering if it sat in a distributor’s warehouse for a while before then.

Medium bodied, with a watery yet oily mouthfeel.

I know nothing of this brewery, really, but I have to wonder if this is meant to taste this way. Unless it’s really just not that great a beer to begin with, the most likely culprit I can think of is time. At some point, perhaps when reassured it’s definitely fresh, I’ll give this one another shot and change my review accordingly.

12oz can, cool to see another brewery from Bend show up here in Alberta. Lots and lots o' different hops in this one, apparently.

This beer pours a slightly hazy, pale golden amber colour, with four fat fingers of puffy, densely foamy, and yet bubbly ecru head, which leaves some stellar chunky webbed lace around the glass as it slowly ebbs away.

It smells of bready, doughy caramel malt, generic, yet approachable orange and red grapefruit citrus components, a further pome fruitiness, and some tame earthy, leafy, and herbal green hops. The taste is more gritty, grainy caramel malt, a muddled citrus flesh fruitiness, subtle pine, green leafy, and herbal bitters, and a growing sense of alcohol unchecked.

The bubbles are pretty understated in their quotidian frothiness, the body a decent middleweight, and mostly smooth, the hops suddenly having been called out of town on business, or something. It finishes off-dry, a growing biscuity graininess putting a minor kibosh on the once heady hop contingent in this offering.

A more or less tasty and engaging malt-forward, but not shy on the hops American IPA, which I suppose describes a whole lot of them, doesn't it? Y'know, how the other half lives and breathes and all that? Worthy (of course) of further imbibement, should I ever find my way back to bucolic Bend, or just to my local bottleshop (you know I will, either way).

12 oz can served cold into a goblet.

Worthy IPA is a hazy amber color with very thin white head.

Aroma is unusual in that it's not that hoppy and has a strange mineral/chemical character.

Flavor is better than aroma would have you believe. Hoppy, fresh, and bitter.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and nicely carbonated.

Overall an interesting beer but lacking in appearance and aroma.

From the 12 fl oz can. Sampled on April 4, 2015.

Golden pour with a modest short lasting foamy white head.

The aroma is more malt forward than hop forward considering its an IPA. A vague apple or pear thing behind it all.

The body is medium to a bit better than medium.

Again like the aroma the focus of the flavor is on the creamy pale malts with a slight bitter finish. No major hop notes. But I get peat moss.
