Around the Portland area every place that serves draft beer carries this, and there's a reason why. A great goto (sorry stone) ipa. Hits every mark for a great ipa.

Hop forward and very fruity. I like my IPAs with a little more malt balance but I could see how hop heads would love this brew. I'd definitely recommend trying it.

Tried on tap at a local taproom.

Light orange/amber color with a very low (2-3mm) clear white head. Low lacing.

The smell has just a little pine and some lemon citrus. It's not nearly as fragrant as many of the IPAs I've been enjoying lately.

This is a fairly 'big' IPA, more directly bitter than I'd expected from what I'd read about it. The lemon comes through in the flavor -- the hop is good and bright. It's not as balanced as I'd hoped, though there is a pretty good malt presence for the style.

The body is on the light side and despite the balance issues it's easy to drink. Overall, it's pretty good, but there are so many outstanding competitors, I'm not sure I'd go out of my way for it.

Picked up at the Brewery in a 32oz growler.

A: clear golden amber with some lacing. Some retention.
S: I loved the smell. Great balance of pine and citrus.
T: a little more mild than I anticipated. Fairly malty, but still a good amount if citrus and hops.
M: a little oily like others have said. Still, a good amount of carbonation.
O: A very good NW IPA. Definitely worth a try if you find it on tap or picking up some if you happen to pass Baker City.

Pours a finger of head on a clear straw body.
The aroma is pine, mango and pineapple. A great combination.
The taste is moderate pine and lemon bitterness.
The texture is softer.
It's quite enjoyable.

Thanks to Eric for sharing this one! Took GABF Gold in American IPA, and it shows.

Hazed light orange with a frothy head that left behind spotty lacing around the edges. God lasting surface coverage and carb trails visible.

Pungent dank resiny hops, bright and citrusy with a tropical undercurrent. Smells great, and it's easy to get lost in.

Taste is similar, big explosive hop flavors of grapefruit and tangerine, very resiny. Light bodied and not sweet or sticky at all, easygoing 2-row malt base. Moderate bitterness that lingers nicely into the aftertaste. Great west coast style IPA.
