3.55/5 rDev -15.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5
Poured from tap at Deschutes PDX. Pours a slightly hazy golden/copper hue with average head and average retention.
Good though simple and clear aromatics. Lots of citrus and a fresh and zippy hop note. Very powerful, clean, but simple. No real complexity.
Palate confirms, citrus and hops. Not really much else. It's pleasant enough though.
Texture is very nice, here is where the hops and malts really come together. Good astringency, nice balance, and a good finish.
Overall a very nice but straight to the point IPA featuring Citra hops. Worth a pint just to check it out, but nothing to search out.
Serving type: on-tap

355ml bottle poured into tulip 28/7/14
A clear dark amber with just a couple visible bubbles but a well sustained thumbs width of foam leaves 6 pencil thin rings before falling, looks sexy
S grapefruit, melon, tangerine, bruised mango, has a fruit candy thing going for it, gummy bears? floral notes, some spruce and caramel
T juicy, lots of caramel, some lime rind, still has a candy thing going for it, balanced for a West Coast IPA
M medium bodied, creams up just stopping short of foam, just a little grit, gummy bears and citrus rind on the finish
O solid IPA, not exactly a palate wrecker like I was expecting but an easy drinking IPA with a solid malt backbone keeping the hops in check
I'll have no problems with the 5 bottles I have left in the fridge but at over 20$ a 6er it might be tough buying another 6 with better IPA's on the same shelf for less money.
