My favorite IPA (this month). I gladly travel 50 miles to get it since it is not distributed in my state.

Nice and floral and definitely some honey flavor in there.
Excellent brew overall and the highest ABV at 7.5% served at Safeco Field

From the bottle into a 8oz jam jar (splitting this with my IPA-loving wife).

One of my favorite go-to IPAs. Probably the best thing about it is the aroma which is a spot-on peachy, almost mango, sweetness. Wonderful fruit flavors with a bit of the classic NW citrus tang, mostly in the aftertaste. Highly recommend, for any time of the year, especially when you need to quench that cravin' for hops.

Poured from draft. Dark orange and clear with a small amount of white head.

This is just an outstanding IPA. Extremely well-balanced and has a complexity that leads the pack for the IPA style. One of the best.

I thought this the best of the 10 or so Oregon IPAs I tried on a recent visit to Portland.

Bomber.
