On tap @ the Big Horse Brew Pub (Hood River, OR) on 8/28/11. Served in a pint glass.

Pours a hazed copper, topped with a ½ finger of bright-white head. This retains with a thin foaminess, yet still manages a pretty frothy cascade that settles into spotty lace down sides of the glass. The aroma smells leafy and a little dank, with a fruity mix of bitter grapefruit and then some tarter lemon character as well. This mixes with the malts, which have more of a neutral bready character going on with them, helping balance this a bit but still keeping the focus of the nose on the hops.

The taste fares a bit better here, with green citric hops (that has a bit of a herbal edge to it) that are putting off notes of pine and spice, which hang in the finish along with a fairly strong pithy feel. The Munich & Crystal malts here do a good job of balancing out the majority of that bitterness but also add a supportive crisp dryness to this that matches up well with the hop profile. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a sharp crispness that sees just enough of an underlying creaminess to keep this relatively smooth in the mouth. This drinks decently for a 7% beer.

This wasn’t anything spectacular for an IPA but the combo of hops and malt here brought a nicely crisp and quenching feel that kept me rapidly sipping on it. This was decent. (1,348 characters)
