22oz bottle from "Lifesource" in Salem OR. $4.99 Pours a deep golden colour with a large frothy,creamy off white head. Aromas of fresh spruce,orange peel and lemon zest hops..caramel malt backing. Taste much the same as the aroma..with the lemon and spruce dominating..rather soapy character develops at the end..malts thin in this one. Mouth feel is medium to thin..not too bad really. Run of the mill IPA..on the drinkable side though

Hazy, darky murky gold with a small off-white head leaving scattered lace.

Smell is sweet citrus hops, some resin, pine. Nice brightness.

Taste is hoppy, with a pretty heft does of phenols, malty as well. Low bitterness, pretty quick finish.

Mouthfeel is on the chewy side, especially considering the gravity.

Drinkability pretty good, taste is pretty solid, but I could use less phenols and lighter body.

Poured from a bomber into a large tulip.

A - Slightly darker then "normal" west coast IPA but within style. Nice creamy head, didn't last too long.

S - Robust dank citrus hops, not too sweet smelling.

T - Taste is way thicker then I'd expect from a 5.x % IPA. Lots of malt flavour happening with a fair but not overwhelming hoppiness.

M - Thicker then most ipas, more in tune with an amber. Good carbonation.

O - A nice beer to have slowly when you aren't planning on a big session. Not a real hop bomb and quite thick feeling, I doubt I could drink more then a bomber in an evening without feeling very full.
