this is a great ipa! collaboration ipas never seem to be as good as the ones made individually by the participating breweries. anyone else ever notice that? looks like fort george does a whole series of them, which is cool, and they got some heavy hitters for this one! a slightly deeper golden color than many, with a fluffy tall white head that leaves trace lacing as it drinks down, and a bit of haze. smells insanely fresh, juicy, and citrus forward on the hops, nothing new at all here, just really well timed and proportioned. the taste shows some fairly obvious citra and mosaic, although there may be others in here too, especially considering all the bitterness that comes on late. a nice round medium body with a fresh dry cereal complexion, maybe a little wheat, its perfect for the pungent hops. great carbonation too, and quite sturdy on the abv. my friends described this as half melvin and one quarter wach of the other two breweries, and i agree pretty well with that assessment. awesome ipa, super fresh in the maret right now!

Bright orange and just the slightest bit of haze, decent head. Aroma is juicy hops, pungent, dank. Flavor is juicy, piney, possibly Mosaic hops? Delicious IPA, I'd love to get another four pack but this was a GABF one and done.

Lightly golden, but hazy, smallish receding head. Noticible pineapple from
the crack of the can, grapefruit, clementine and honey. Bitter, white grapefruit, pepper, dankness, mango. Good bite of hops. Drying mouthfeel, does not linger. A great NW IPA.

Love this years 3-way. Great 7.35 IPA that drinks more like 5-6 abv. Mellow, high quality flavor with citrusy hops just to the perfect level of non-astringent bitterness. Fairly small head that doesn't linger all that long. The only feature that could have improved this beer would be a nice pillowy head. It's hard to find any Barley Brown item off site, so this one hell of a treat to just be able to pickup at the market. Dated can, 5 weeks 'new'. Damn good brew!

Poured into a Duvel tulip. Bottom of can says 8.2.16.

A- Pours a semi-hazy medium amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of sheer surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves small clots behind and there are specs of sediment suspended in the body.

S- Juicy, somewhat dank hop aroma with notes of pine and stone fruit.

T- More stone fruit with a solid malt backbone followed by medium bitterness. There's also some pine characteristic. The flavors don't really line up with the bitterness all that well. Decently drinkable but doesn't entice me to take multiple sips.

M- Semi-sharp from the hops with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the lighter side.

O- Not bad, but the flavors aren't all that well integrated for it to be a great IPA in my book.

The beer comes in a clear medium deep gold color.

The aroma is piney, spicy, resin, a bit of fruity, grapefruit, a bit of biscuity malt.

The flavor follows balance. West Coast with East Coast combination. PIney and resin, biscuit malt, grapefruit, clean, soft beer, without being being overly bitter on the finish. Wonderful to pair with food.

This is a quality IPA with more citrus notes than their Vortex IPA. This is a fairly big IPA compared to the 6%, 60 IBU IPAs I have had this summer. However, it is not so hoppy that the other tastes get overwhelmed. It has a nice balance of citrus, bitterness and sweetness. This beer has some very positive reviews, here and elsewhere, and they are well earned. It is getting a little hard to find, but worth hunting down.

Got this one from Rutger this past summer.

From a can into a snifter

APPEARANCE: Pours a 1+ finger, medium looking, creamy white head with good retention. Bright, hazy amber yellow with higher levels of carbonation. Head fades to a full wisp and clings to the sides of the glass. A faint wisp and ring remain until the end leaving some good lacing down the glass.

SMELL: Tropical fruits, pineapple, mango, with some passion fruit and caramel notes on the nose. Really nice.

TASTE: Melon, pineapple and passion fruit up front. Lots of tropical fruits here. More flavor at the swallow with a bold and lingering finish of mango, orange, passion fruit, honeydew melon and some hop bitterness. Nice stuff.

PALATE: Medium body and medium levels of carbonation. Creamy enough, goes down smooth and finishes slightly dry on the palate. Some minor bitterness lingers.

OVERALL: Good stuff. This is a quality IPA with lots of juicy flavor. Would definitely drink this is mass quantities if it were my local offering. Worth checking out if you like your IPAs full of juicy tropical fruits. Thanks again rutger. Highly recommended.

Had a pint there today for $5.00

Beer was served pale with a nice white head when served.

Nose is tropical city, very fresh and appealing!

Taste was mango and papaya forward with a trace amount of pine left behind on the palate.

Mouthfeel is light to medium bodied and delicate on the palate.

Overall this is a very nice beer, glad we took the hour and a half drive up from Tillamook this afternoon. Seek it out!
