Served from the can into a nonic glass

A- Poured a very clear light amber color with fluffy off-white head with big bubbles, some light visible carbonation

S- Big caramel malt, piney notes, citrusy orange, lots of sweetness. Pretty balanced aroma for an IPA but pleasant.

T- Big orange citrus, piney, grassy hop notes and big caramel malt backbone. Tastes like a big Amarillo and Chinook hop presence.

M- Soft carbonation, medium body, mostly dry finish

O- Some nice hop character and a very nice malt backbone. Very balanced for an IPA, but flavorful and refreshing. Lots of sweetness from the hops and malts, some dirty/earthy hop character too.

Big light off white head settles into a nice lacing above a clear copper-bronze colored beer.

Citrus, pine, and fresh grass hops aroma that seems to be on the lighter side.

Nice hops taste that is not overwhelming but definitely there with some citrus, some pine aspects and a little bit of fresh grass attributes, giving this IPA a pleasant IPA taste.

A dry slightly bitter hops taste aspect to the aftertaste of this medium bodied beer.

A decent beer definitely worth a try if you are into IPA's or the Portland beer scene.
