On tap

Pours clear golden color with a small creamy white head. Smells of tropical and citrus hop, berries, bready malt. Tastes of fruity tropical and citrus hops; mango, guava, red berries, pineapple. Slightly malty finish. Medium body and carbonation, creamy mouthfeel and finish. Nice and fruity throughout

On tap at the Portland brewpub.

A: Orange/amber with an off-white one-finger head that lingered. Thick lacing.

S: Loads of citrus action. Mangoes, pineapple, peaches. Then a nice pine resin slides in with a light malty backbone.

T: Follows nose with "a Simcoe and Citra hop punch," like the menu says. Such a great balance of pine, citrus and malts. Easily drinkable. didn't feel like an 8%.

M: Medium with medium, juicy carbonation.

O: Glad I got to try "the #2 IPA in Portland."
