Source: Cans purchased at the brew pub in White Salmon (production date less than 2 weeks). This is a refreshing drinkable IPA with medium alcohol content (6.2%) and delicious grapefruit notes. My wife typically dislikes the bitterness of IPA's but (remarkably) judged Country Boy to be very likable. While it is not a session beer, it is more moderate on the bitterness scale but still retains potent citrus notes typical of a good west coast IPA.

To make a long story short, I inadvertently sat on this for 5 months. When I found it in my beer fridge, I felt like Scoobie Doo: "Ruh Rog, Raggie."

But fear not, your intrepid beer nerd will soldier on, and he is rewarded, because this is not bad. There's no sign of age in the pour, with a mostly clear golden colored beer propping up a light tan head.

The aromas are a bit muted, which is a clear sign of the beer's age, IMHO. There are some light citrus hop aromas, but the malt is really forward. Diacetyl maybe?

Nope, just a healthy malt backbone that is predominant because I'm an idiot and sat on this so long that the hops faded - but they are still present with some citrus flavors and a tangy berry flavor.

This morphed from an IPA to a sorta hoppy amber. I just wish I had tried this fresher, because I think it would've been a really nice IPA.

Purchased at the brewery earlier this week. No date code, but we'll assume it's fresh. Pretty pour, hazy for the style and a nice tight head that is slow to dissipate. A light aroma of hops, not much else. The taste is hoppy but a little muddled in our view. Mouthfeel is flat with a slightly soapy aftertaste. In the Portland-Seattle corridor, quality IPAs are putting the bar vert high for these smaller brewers.

I bought a six-pack (cans) in a bottle shop. Poured in to a pint glass.

Pours a yellow/gold color, chill have with a one-finger white head.

Smell has some light citrus fruit aromas.

Taste is balanced, a malt presence up front, with a fruity grape fruit and lemon flavor on the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, slightly cloying.

Overall an average IPA. There are better, but this one is good.

A thanks to the commander of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer.Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is strong of oranges. Taste is also heavy on the oranges, very little malts, moderate bitterness. Feels medium/light bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer.

I CAN't understand why we are getting a Washington state brewery's distribution this far east, but The CANQuest (tm) rejoices in its presence!

From the CAN: "Drink Everybody's Beer". I CAN only try.

I Crack!ed it open and CANducted an inverted Glug, but that may have been a mistake. Sure, I got a finger-and-a-half of foamy, soapy, tawny head that quickly fell, leaving great lacing behind, but I also got a cloudy beer with a lot of visible floaties. Color was a cloudy Golden-Amber (SRM = > 5, < 7). Nose had a citrusiness that somehow put me in mind of orange marmalade. Hmm. Mouthfeel was medium. Taste was slightly bitter, very citrusy, like a cross between oranges & tangerines and grapefruit. It was pleasant enough, but going back to my original query, why bother sending something that does not distinguish itself from the pack this far east? Finish was dry, slightly bitter and while satisfying, I just would not want more than one. Once more, here I am, damning with faint praise.

On tap at the brewpub in White Salmon.

The pale golden body has alight haze and is topped by a durable off-white head that leaves exceptional lacing.

Mildly bitter although hop dominated. More bitterness and hop flavor in the aftertaste, but still mild for style.
Medium-light body is smooth with medium carbonation

Can, no date, from Philadelphia Beer Week. Poured into Kane Belgian tulip glass.

L: 2F+ wispy foam head with some lacing and a ring. Beer is a hazy amber.

S: Muted citrus, especially grapefruit and orange.

T: Slight citrus forward, grapefruit and orange. Some pine and dankness in middle. Cracker malt. Slightly bitter.

F: Light to medium body, light to medium carbonation, decent balance and construction.

O: This is perfectly OK.

I've had this one 3 different times spread out in a year - first time, great - second time, it sucked - 3rd time, great again - so i'll chalk that second time up as a bad batch and i won't count it - so a great beer otherwise

This isn't terrible as others have stated. It's not great. It comes across as old style APA/IPA wit h more classic hops pre-emphasis on citrus and all the subsequent fruit flavors or Maybe it's just aging a bit.
Nice white head with decent lacing. Quite cloudy golden yellow.
Quite a dull aroma with hints of grassy/weedy hops. Some malt in background.
A little sweetness in the taste with hints of fruit, but the bitterness is bigger and pronounce yet without excess. I kinda' like that. Malt foundation is there and holds on the flavors. Hops are still more traditional although some citrus comes through and lays on the tongue with the bitterness. There is a grainier taste that I"m not sure is malt or a hop characteristic, but I don't mind it.
Nice feel.
Decent enough esp. in the summer.
thanks Beertunes.

Thanks to a good trader for another great box that I’m starting to pull stuff out of. 12 oz. can from a brewery I’ve never heard hide nor hair of: excellent.

The pour is a puffy light orange. Holy oranges: the nose is like stuffing orange zest up your nose until it hits grey matter. Then there’s a bit of tangerine & more oranges. Smell-wise, this could be the official beer of Florida.

Country Boy makes a sharp break from the nose. The oranges are overtaken by a bitter mustiness that hits me below the belt. As it warms the mustiness comes on more sharply, like a yeast infection settling into your gums. Drinkable if you like inhaling mold spores, but, ecch.

I can’t drink any more to tease out what might be underneath the must, but this beer should be condemned. Straight awful.

On tap into a Mason jar glass at Chuck's. Pours a hazy golden color w/ a minimal head.

Aroma is faint citrusy hops and pale malt, although the subdued aroma could be due as much to the glassware as anything else.

Taste is citrusy hops, mostly tangerine and grapefruit, layered over pale biscuity malt. Decent resinous hop presence. Nice for what it is, but nothing particularly revelatory here. Finishes bitter, slightly floral.

Mouthfeel is balanced and medium bodied, about right for the style.

Overall a good IPA but not one I'd necessarily seek out again.
