Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint glass.
A: Clear, light amber color with over one finger of off-white foam head. Heavy lacing remains on the glass.
S: Juicy mixed citrus fruit and complementary pine overpower other ingredients. The smell is clean overall, with little in the way of distinct yeast qualities apparent.
T: Begins off-dry, with caramel and hops aromatics that feature floral and coniferour foliage in addition to citrus qualities that initially match the smell closely. Acidity is mild into the middle, more tasted than felt, while citrus qualities change to resemble lime peel--including some minor pithiness. Bitterness also develops concurrently, standing out on the palate during the finish as other flavors fade.
M: Medium viscosity, soft and slightly syrupy on the palate, with low carbonation.
D/O: A 'concept beer' served at the company pub in Portland for years, this mild but aromatic IPA finally graduates to wide production. It is just marginally more edgy in its current incarnation than it was upon first encounter in 2010. Remembered as a misapplication of Citra cultivar hops, this newer model represents an improvement.
