Not your average Portland Safeway pick. Bright yellow-orange hue. Solid carb. Heady front of grass and resin. Biscuit malt, honey viscosity mouthfeel. Bitterness grows in mid taste, and builds with the flavor profile - very balanced. Piney overtones remain with some booze waft.

Reviewed from notes. Poured from 12 oz. can into a CCB pint glass.

A: Pours a clear light gold, with a 1 1/2 finger white head that fades fairly quickly. Low visible carbonation.

S: Muted overall. Citrus, spice and melon hops atop some biscuit malt.

T: Follows the nose. This doesn't have a terribly big hop flavor. Moderately bitter after an unexpected amount of sweetness from malt, although at least it's not a caramel predominant flavor.

M: Light body, mild alcohol presence, and more carbonation sensation than the appearance would suggest.

O: Well, I'm not thrilled, but it isn't objectionable or anything. This wasn't a terribly fresh can (about three months old), but the expected hop presence is missing.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: from can into pint - medium gold beer with a full head of off-white foam, some lacing left behind

S: some pale malt and herbal notes

T: nice full malt flavors and hoppy overtones, bitter over smooth butterscotch

M: medium body, moderate carbonation, some fizz, some coating

O: A good, but not exceptional IPA - gotta try for fans of the style, as 21st Amendment is a great brewery - but wasn't anything that really knocked my socks off - let's call it a reliable representative of the style
