Look is mostly clear. Little fine head, and not much resulting lacing. Pleasant gold color.

Smell is loaded with peaches, and it's fairly intense. Not what I usually get with something so clear. I get little bit of pineapple. Moderate sweetness, and hardly an bitterness. Not much else, but what's there is plenty pleasant.

Taste has some of the fruit flavors, but the main flavors are wood and malt. The level of bitterness is well above zero, what's I'd call moderate-heavy. If the fruit hadn't volatilized, this would be pretty good. Or maybe it's just covered up, along with any other depth.

Slighlty prickly with a swish around the mouth, but otherwise foamy. Alcohol should be better hidden. Aftertaste is a continuation of the bitterness.

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.
