22 oz bottle bought from Roths Sunnyslope Market in S. Salem $4.99 Pours a nice pale orange with a large frothy off white head. Nice light ruby red grapefruit hop aromas, maybe also a touch of lime. There is a bready maltiness also. Light tangy,zesty rind taste..malts again light ,mellow in the end. Nice sptitzy bright mouth feel. Nice summer IPA similar to Fort George Suicide Squeeze and welcome!

Color is more golden than amber in the big chalice. Plenty of sudsy mouthfeel, though short on lacing in the glass. Fairly light body. Citrus aroma with some fruity notes.
This is quite seriously hopped. Bitterness is on the brutal side after a few sips. Hops are listed as Cluster and Cascade with dry-hopped Cascade as well. There is a sweet tang but no real malt flavor. Grapefruit juice and pith dominates the taste.
Some pleasant aromatics before the bitterness sets in, but I don't find this very drinkable. This seems like the same West Coast or San Diego IPA nonsense all over again. Take that as a recommendation if that's where your heart is. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Pioneer Market in La Conner.

I had this beer on-tap in a big taster glass at Oregon Brewers Festival.
Appearance: very light golden hue with a lazy effervescence and a little bit of haze. Not too bad for a session IPA.
Smell: lightly citrusy aroma, with a little bit of a dank character. Not complex but OK for the style.
Taste: lightly grainy malt character with some citrusy hops and just a hint of that dankness from the aroma. Not bad.
Mouthfeel: light body with a light carbonation; rocky and refreshing.
Overall: a decent session IPA. This is a hard style to pin down, but this is a nicely drinkable example.

On draft at Portland Craft, Vancouver.
Tangerine with steady, creamy off white finger of foam that rings.
Tangerine rind on the nose with big, fresh green leafiness.
Sugar cookie, lots of Sunny D hops, some resin and light pine.
Nectarine finish and slight children's aspirin linger.
Light, a bit of oil, some cling.
Solid dose of bitterness with even a bit of powdery bitterness (67 IBUs.) But it's too thin for 5.5%, and you can cram the same aroma into 4%. Compare to C No Evil, and this loses.
Good but not great.
