look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

On tap at Belmont Station in PDX.

appearance - good transparency, orange, foamy head, nice lacing

smell - grapefruit and fresh resinous hops

taste - definitely hop forward, citrus and grapefruit, the malt is barely even there like it should be

mouthfeel - medium body, perfect carbonation, slightly dry finish

overall - excellent hop profile, exactly what i like in an ipa

Served at their initial release at the brewery.
Beautiful golden appearance.
Estimated at 80 - 85 IBU, this IPA Is every bit of that. Strong citrus and pine notes suggest this is borderline imperial IPA. A home run!
I grabbed a growler to go to savor the memory.
update 9/25/11 tapped into growler - second impression every bit as impressive as the first.
