look: 4.25 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

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.

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.

look: 4 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.75

Clear amber with an off white three finger head that lasts a long time. Rings of lace on the glass as the level drops.
Smell is pungent aromatic hops with lots of fruit and resins. Sweet toasted bready malts also.
Taste is similar to the nose with the tropical fruit and pine notes leading the way. The malt sweetness almost balances this beer close to a DIPA level.
Mouthfeel is medium with ample carbonation. Long medium dry and mostly bitter finish.
Really easy drinking for such a bold flavored beer. One of the best IPAs around.

Slightly hop hazed light orange with a long lasting white head and great lacing... Juicy tropical fruits and pithy grapefruit... Very dry... One of the best standard IPAS I have had... Very drinkable and the hops add an oily quality to a lighter than expected body... This is poundable on a hot day.

on-tap @ Belmont Station.

Clear, golden with a thick, foamy white head.

Huge citrusy, resiny hops.

Medium body, foamy carbonation.

I can't do this beer justice in this simple review. "Citrusy" and "resiny" certainly describe the focal point of this IPA, as it does hundreds of others, but the way they come together in this beer is something special. Delicious.

Barley Brown has a knack for making high quality IPA's and DIPA's, so it's no surprise thiat this is yet another strong effort. The beer has the usual dry hoppy flavor profile, with something of any underlying grittiness that is interesting and intriguing. There's just enough sweet malt to bouy all the dry citrus and light pine you get in this beer, and drinkabilty is oustanding. It's pretty much reached the point that when I see the words Barley Brown and IPA/DIPA together, you pretty much know you're in for a hophead treat.

I would also add that BB made a wet hop version of this beer during fresh hop/wet hop season, that was even better than the regular PJ. I didn't think that was possible, but as good as the regular PJ is, the wet version was better.
