4.29/5 rDev +6.7%
on-tap @ Belmont Station.
Hazy, golden with a thick, billowy white head.
Big citric and resiny hops dominate in both the aroma and the taste. Really well done, delicious.
Medium+ body with foamy carbonation.
This certainly hits the spot when looking for a big, hoppy IPA. The citric and resiny hops are quite well balanced.

On cask at the Belmont Station Fringe festival.
The beer pours an attrative orange amber with pretty good head retention and decent lacing (especially considering this was cask conditioned). The nose is all IPA goodness and was probably this beer's best feature. On this particular day, I got a considerable amount of dank earth, light pine and considerable sweet orange citrus. Flavors generally replicate the nose, with more of the pine flavor coming out. However, there is still plenty of delicious oranage citrus in this hoppy/bitter, west coast style IPA (the beer has some nice underlying sweet malt, but is ultimately dominated by the hoppy bitterness, leading to a dry, bitter finish). Mouthfeel is medium bodied to full, with a long, bitter finish. Drinkability is pretty good, though it actually came across as a bit more boozy than I would have expected for a 7.6% abv. beer. In any event, I found this to be yet another impressive, enjoyable beer from the folks at Barely Brown.
Note: Some IPA's benefit from cask conditioning, and some don't. My guess is that this is an IPA that is better on gas then it is from cask.

Pours a slightly hazy orange with only a slight head and some scant lacing. Smells very floral backed up by copious amounts of sweet malt. The taste is nicely balanced between floral and citrusy hops on the one hand and clean, sweet malt on the other hand. Very smooth and easy drinking, and quite juicy without being sweet. I really appreciate the wide differences in flavor between their various IPAs- it makes it quite enjoyable for a hophead like me to visit the brewpub. I had this one on tap at the pub in Baker City. Og the various IPAs, I'd say this is a little less in your face and more balanced, and sometimes that what you want. Not as assertive as the headshake, though, and overall I liked that better. I realize this is billed as an "IPA", and that one as a "double IPA", but really they are pretty close in abv. Really probably just a matter of taste. Either way, these are solid brews.
