Tasted in a Spiegelau IPA glass from a 22 fl oz bottle on August 1, 2018. Brewed with Mosaic, Summit, Simcoe, Cascade and Amarillo hops. It is bright golden in color and has intense tropical, dank, and grapefruit notes. By keeping the malt profile as light as possible, the interplay of hop flavors can really shine. The beer clocks in at only 6.6% ABV and 50 IBU, but it packs as much hop flavor and aroma as any IPA out there.

Excellent, consistent IPA. It's nice to find a quality beer that is accessible AND affordable. Wonderful tropical citrus flavor packed into a refreshing, golden hued 6% and change.

Brought home a bomber of this IPA during my most resent Portland beercation. Upon the initial pour, there is an intense blast of orange and a massive mountain of shimmering froth that settles into a cloudy amber body. Upon the first sip, there is a dank and mildly doughy mouthfeel inundated by a tropical miasma created by the five hops: Amarillo, Cascade, Mosiac, Simco and Summit. The finish is reminiscent of an orange slice and grass. Very refreshing and tasty. Not weak, yet not overwhelming, either. A brewery to watch - like many other Portland breweries, of course.

Bottle poured into a Mountain Rambler Brewing Co pint glass

A: Pours golden amber with a frothy off white head that settles to a firm layer that hangs around and laces nicely.

S: Fruity side shows first, tropical and orchard fruits, countered with citrus zest and resinous pine, crackery malt, and just a touch of sweetness.

T: Resinous pine and zesty citrus up front, grapefruit, lemon, and tangerine, followed with hints of tropical fruit, passion fruit, melon, and apricot, crackery slightly toasty malt, and just a touch of sweetness.

M: Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, crisp and dry with a lingering bitterness.

O: A little light, drinks somewhere between a pale ale and a session IPA, but a nice light NW style IPA.
