Very Good
Notes: A new wave IPA with a simple malt bill that showcases sought after hop varieties, such as Mosaic and Simcoe. Expect heavy, resinous pine and citrus flavors. It’s like a majestic citrus forest!

Undated can, but fresh enough. Slightly hazy amber pour, light head. Indistinct aroma. Taste is a mid-tier PNWIPA: hop forward, malt base in the background, a bit of sweetness. Overall, nothing too out of balance, but it's a hugely crowded fiels out there and this one has not much to raise it above the crowd. Y.

Clear reddish golden with two fingers of off white head. Rings and swathes of lace appear as the level drops.
Smell is resinous hops some fruit and malts.
Taste is piney hop oil some fruit and biscuit malt.
Mouthfeel is medium with good carbonation. Finish is dry and quite bitter.
Overall a tasty WCIPA. No date found. From a 19.2 ounce can.

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Look: Semi-clear orange with a good full head that recedes leaving good lacing behind
Aroma: Citrus fruits – orange, grapefruit, lemon, lime – also pine, blueberries, some light tropical fruit notes as well. Cracker-like malt in the background
Taste: Follows the nose well – lots of citrusy hops intermingling with pine notes and tropical fruits. Malt holds things together well but stays in the backdrop, letting the hops really shine. Good bite and a little heat on the finish
Mouthfeel: Soft and a little silky but resinous too and the medium-high carbonation keeps things crisp. Fairly dry finish as well
Overall: This is tasty stuff. I usually ‘visit’ these folks for their non-hoppy offerings but this is a really solid and balanced WCIPA and it has me reminded of its presence for my future hop-fix buys. Glad I pulled the trigger on this – new 19.2oz cans to boot!

From the 12 oz can, pours frothy and golden amber in the chalice. Rich and clean-tasting hoppy brew with a distinct piney-fruity taste. Aroma is pineapple with a hint of lemon. Moderate malty sweetness, with sturdy body almost like a DIPA.

There is an insistent peach taste that rises as the bitter and slightly astringent aftertaste emerges. Then it's more herbal and dank with juniper-pine notes. Overall it's a highly flavorful and bold IPA. Alcohol is 7.3%.

I have had only good beer from this Brewer and now I am finally trying this IPA, priced modestly among what I had to choose from. Pours gold-amber, thin whiteish head ( my glass may not have been to blame ) . Pineapple hit me first thing on the nose. Taste is a nice pine resin,a little banana and grapefruit of course, decent feel. A nice tasting beer, not the best example of IPA for me.

it looks like this one has gone through multiple evolutions, possibly using new hops in each batch. its definitely an ipa now, says so on the can, and the abv is listed at 7.3%, not the lesser strength listed here. maybe recycled the name, maybe it changes from batch to batch, i dont know. the one i had recently was fantastic, and almost assuredly had some sorachi ace hops in it, which to me is not only one of my favorite varietals, but also one of the most easily identifiable. i am a sucker for it too, so even a little hint of it gets me going, and here it seems fresh and evident in a really sturdy ipa with a little bigger and darker malt complexion, a light copper color to it, some baked depth, and a little fuller body, maybe a touch sweet in the middle when i drink it, but not just dried out in the end but also really well balanced by the hops, more bitterness than i usually get from sorachi ace alone, so it must be in here with some high alpha northwestern types as well. i get notes of lemon curd, pine, juniper, meyer lemon, lime peel, and sativa from these hops, even a purple grape candy note, along with some bitterness, if its not sorachi ace, id love to know what it is! great hop complexion on top of a nutty, hearty grain base, clean fermentation profile too, and excellent carbonation. this is four season ipa, and a really good one. if this changes from batch to batch, i might cut that out and just stick with this one, its excellent! my favorite beer from these guys to date, hands down.

Frankly it is a little light on flavor but is nicely drinkable. for $8 per 6-pk, the value just isn't there. I would prefer Coors to this & that is saying something. It needs more bite.

12oz can poured into 12oz tulip. Poured a lightly hazy yellow-gold color, with about 1/4 inch of white head that low retention and light lacing.

The aroma was mostly piney hops, with some light malt backing that up.

The taste was nearly identical, but there was a wee bit of unpleasant astringency at the back end.

The body was light-medium, and finished semi-dry.

Drinkability was fine, it would make for a decent outdoors-y beer. Overall, a fairly decent example, probably worth a shot if you see it.

Crowler from Growler Guys. Medium Amber with light fluffy head. Hoppy aroma, piney. Taste has the hops forward, with some nice caramel malts filling in behind. Pretty standard for a classic IPA.

Pint at "b2 Taphouse" Salem OR $4.25 Slightly hazy golden coloured ale with a small bubbly white head. Aroma of resiny,grapefruit hop and biscuit malts. Taste is the same but very well balanced..maybe a bit sweet in the end. Nice regular palate to the beer..smooth ,medium carbonation. Nice smooth drinkable pale ale.
