A: Hazy amber color while the off-white head is rather tall and compact, and leaves rather nice lacings.

S: Rich sweet bready toasted malt. Rich bitter hops as well as floral; pine and citric.

T: Very bitter together with rich sweetness from the toasted caramell malt. Pineapple, grapefruit, and oranges from the floral hops. The sweetness is almost like molasses.

M: Long bitter and very sweet aftertaste. The body is full and very smooth, while carbonation is modest.

O: A nice and bitter AIPA - with a sweet twist.

A: This poured a cloudy copper with a little off white head.
S: It smelled like faint copper hops and bready malt.
T: It tasted like copper and waxy resin hops, with some bready malt. It had a dirty bitter aftertaste.
M: It was somewhat thick with moderate carbonation.
D: This was not a good IPA. The scent and taste were ok at best, although the body was nice. The finish was rough, so it wasn't that easy to drink. Not recommended.

22oz from Roths Sunnyslope Market in S.Salem. $4.49 Its been a decade since my last beer from Northern Light..now No-Li. So here goes. Darker than usual for an IPA it is amber with a very nice thick and frothy,large creme coloured head. Very strong, resiny,herbal hop aroma..fresh A very well hopped IPA..mostly resin and some flower..malt in this one takes a back seat. This is not your usual dank,malty/balanced PNW IPA. Mouthfeel is fine for style..soft and low carbonation. Nice ..unusual IPA

Dark orange, almost amber colored IPA with a huge frothy head that sticks around and laces the glass. Smells of spicy lemon rind, resiny hops and sweet almost caramelly malts. Flavor is right on the nose. Very bitter at first sip, but I quickly acclimated. There is a firm herbal and critrus bitterness throughout, but the sweet, rich malt wraps it up and carries it off the palate well. Feels as creamy as it looks. Familiar, but well done beer.

I just gotta say the northwest does it best...they just do.Pours into an imperial nonic a chill hazed deep copper color with a near perfect looking creamy/sticky off white head that left two broken rings of lace as it settled slowly into a frothy mass.The complex hops in the nose are just great,grassy,citric,and resiny but with a big lightly sweet firm biscuit base that is almost as big,there is a tinge of sweet alcohol that's DIPAish as well.This is a bigger "standard" IPA with a nice grassy and citric hop flavor profile and a sweeter alcohol influenced finish,there is that firm biscuit malt base there thru to the finish.This should be rated higher in my humble opinion,I think if this was an east coast brewed beer it would be...just my opinion.

A: Pours a clear copper with 3 fingers of beige head that fades into a frothy ring with a lot of lacing.

S: Grapefruit with light notes of sweeter citrus up front followed by earthy and piney aromas.

T: Grapefruit is stronger here with pine and herbs. Dank weed flavors follow with some citrus rind notes before a moderately bitter finish.

M: Medium body and carbonation, this beer is carbonated enough to avoid being oily or watery.

O: A surprisingly good IPA. I wasn't expecting much and the aroma is a little on the bland side, but it's quite tasty and drinkable.
