A classic grapefruity IPA with piney notes galore. Kind of like Bridgeports version but even bigger. Not much to complain about with this beer as it delivers the goods in a PNW package. Mouthfeel was just right and finish was long. One of the best IPAs I have had in awhile

A-Presents a golden-orange color with virtually no head. Thus, no lacing.

S-Floral and citrus hops are fragrant and pleasant.

T-Grapefruit and piney hops are aggressive without overpowering the taste buds since it is balanced by delicate malt sweetness from the pale and caramel malts. One of the better tasting IPAs I have enjoyed that is brewed in Oregon.

M-Very smooth except for a slightly oily feel.

D-Quite drinkable, and would be more so but for the disappointing appearance.

A: Nutty brown, no head, about what I'd expect from an IPA.

S: Grapefruit is rather strong, hops smell sweet and fresh.

T: Hops are nice and string, grapefruit permeates all, good clean flavor isn't hindered by anything else. If you like hops, along with grapefruit, it's that with very little barley. Not sweet, though!

M: A bit oily, but not enough to be irritating. Drinks cleanly, but oil sticks around. Carbonation perfect. Slight astringence.

D: Goes down easily, but would be easier if it were sweeter.

On tap at the brewpub in SE Portland. Thanks to ramnuts for the ride!

A: Poured a cloudy, essentially opaque, dark amber in the glass. A finger of off-white head retained poorly and vanished into a film on the glass, leaving no lacing behind.

S: Citrus (grapefruit, orange rind), caramel. Some pine. Very pungent, so much so that when I requested a taster, I just handed the glass off without even sipping it. What a full and robust aroma. Just incredibly pleasant.

T: Following the nose pretty well, a lightly dry blend of citrus hops in grapefruit and orange varieties. It is supplemented by pine hops, with an undercurrent of caramel and bready malt. Surprisingly tasty, and while it's not as dry as the Triple Threat I am having, I personally enjoy this one far more.

M: Light-medium body with light-medium carbonation. Slightly dry. This helps it sit on the palate very lightly and aids drinkability.

D: On a personal level, I'd prefer this to the Triple Threat on my next visit. A great beer, and I can see why ramnuts speaks of this one so highly.

On-Tap @ Lucky Lab Beer Hall poured into Shaker glass.

Pours a slightly murky orange-amber color with a finger of white fizzy head that eventually leaves a nice ring around the glass and allows for nice heavy lacing as this beer is drank. The aroma is bitter orange peel, grapefruit and some touches of malt. The flavor is citrus peel bitterness upfront and follows with some grain and more hop bitterness on the end. Its medium bodied and is nice and crisp. Very enjoybale IPA, I really cannot say one thing bad about it. Exactly what I was looking for when I ordered it.

On tap at the Northwest location after a fine day in Portland. Served in an imperial pint glass. This beer is incorrectly classified as an American Pale Ale on this site. It is in fact an American IPA. This is, in my opinion, the best single IPA in Portland, if not the Northwest.

Pours a light straw colored golden with a nice white head. The aroma has a lot of citrus and pine. Grapefruit, orange pith, and a small caramel malt backbone. Some pine is evident, but this is mostly citrus in the nose.

The flavor is bitter grapefruit, orange, and pine, with a crackery malt backbone. The bitterness is at a medium level and the sweetness is very low. Alcohol is completely hidden by the hop flavor. The finish is dry and bitter with citrus a hint of sweetness.

The beer is light bodied with a medium-high level of carbonation and a dry, sticky mouthfeel.

Stopped in at the Beer Hall on Quimby and the fine young beer maid suggested this as a popular, hoppier offering.

A- A glowing, slightly hazy golden Imperial pint with a slight head. Minimal retention, fine lacing.

S- A wonderful bouquet, floral notes dancing punctuated with hints of citrus.

T- A lovely hop flavor that matches the nose. Not overwhelmingly bitter.

M- A bit thin bodied, mild carbonation.

D- Overall it was a very fine pint, one that I will go back for. All around a winner in my book, enjoyed it from start to finish.
