3/5  rDev -29.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A - very light orange, minimal head and lacing

S - mild citrus and pine - nothing that impressive

T - balanced but very light - not what I really like in a west coast IPA. It needs more of everything. A bit too sweet also.

M - its fine, but like the aroma and taste, nothing great

O - Maybe I have an old bottle? There is no brewed on or best by date. I hate when breweries dont put this crucial info on their bottles. This is a pretty "meh" IPA.

Purchased a bottle at liquor store in the Pearl District in Portland OR

A - interesting orange color - 2 fingers and nice lacing

S - citrusy hop smell. Grapefruit and pine

T - Great well balanced hop taste - pleasant surprise

M - Light amount of carbonation and not overly fruity or heavy on alcohol

O - Heard this was a bit like Pliny and I see it. Not as good but easier to get. Very good beer

4.13/5  rDev -2.8%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

A-pours a golden orange color and slightly hazy with good head retention
S-a bit subtle overall, has orange citrus, pine
T-orange/grapefruit citrus with malt providing a nice backbone but not lending alot of sweetness. Bit of malt flavor in the aftertaste
M-medium bodied
O-A nice, clean citrus IPA that is very drinkable and full of flavor. Only complaint is the aroma seemed to lack a bit, but still great beer
