6 pack cans bought from "Habits" cig and beer outlet in Salem OR $8.69. Ever so slightly hazy burnt orange colour ale..with a frothy/rocky cream coloured head. Spicy fruity hop aromas..with a touch of toffee cream caramel malts. Taste is far more bitter hoppy//but still tropical but more aggressive piney aspects, quite herbal in the end. Plate is fine for style medium with medium to high carbonation.Nice IPA

Nice, hazy gold/amber color. Very pleasant aroma reminiscent of apricots. Flavors are fruity but without being overly sweet or cloying, nicely balanced with floral hop notes. Great mouthfeel...a delicious easy drinker. Would definitely buy again!

Both this beer and the Citra IPA are American IPAs. Nobody likes to be compared, but the Citra IPA is so much better in my opinion just purely from an aroma and smooth mouth feel. 3.5

A – 3.75

S – 3.5

T – 3.75

MF – 3.75

PIcked up a 12oz can at John's Market in PDX.
Canned: June 19/16 (kudos on info!)

Pours apricot color; surprisingly generous, creamy head.
Smell is bready.
For an IPA, taste is influenced more by the maltiness than the hops (Chinook, Centennial and Amarillo. per brewery site). 75 IBUs ? Don't think so.

Relatively light on the booze. This one is a good 'change-up' IPA...a re-introduction to malt for extreme hopheads.
Enjoyable brew (Disclosure: I'm not a fan of Seattle anything).

for a 7% abv Citra single hop ipa this brew is surprisingly well balanced and also perfectly malted. Not getting the bitterness referred to in other reviews, rather I'm finding a very well balanced, non-bitter taste profile with the malts providing superb balance. I am lucky to live in Oregon, therefore this Oregon only offering was pretty easy to find. Good (actually excellent) job Fremont!
