A slightly chill hazed gold, Viscous Mosquito is capped with a thin and tightly together white bubbly head. It recedes into a ring with a small island and has moderate lacing.

Initial implications of mango and melon are eventually met by fast not traces of grapefruit and pine. Even harder to seek out is the sweet but lightly bready malt deep in the background.

Surprisingly, the flavor takes on the grapefruit as the front runner. The mango seems to have retreated, and the melon, pine, and sugary sweetness barely put up a fight to show their presence.

The feel is very light and crisp. It ticks and tocks from candy sweetness in the beginning, to a clean but strong bitterness in the end. Though it tingles just a bit, it still manages to seem slightly under carbonated.

I like this beer. I think it would be a great warm weather, perhaps summer beer while relaxing in a tube floating down the river. In that sense, Viscous Mosquito is wonderful, but wouldn't be my go to IPA. Cheers!

Warrior, cascade, centennial , Columbus and simcoe hops . One of the best IPA's I have tasted in my life. Bought bomber bottles at Newport Ave Market in Bend . Light citrus flavor / color. Bravo !

Can from Pearl Street Beverage, Burlington, Vermont.
Dated 05/16/2017.
This was poured into a becher pint glass.
The appearance was a sly golden bronzed slight hint of copper color with a finger's worth of white foamy head that slid off at an adequate pace. Lace was concave and somewhat filmy.
The aroma had some sweet peach/apricot smooth cleanliness rolling over some grassy to semi- piney hops. Subtle clean malt base.
The flavor seemed to nicely bring those sweet fruity hops to the malts nicely and stealthily moving into the aftertaste pretty nicely. Some piney-ness coming in slyly.
The mouthfeel was closer to light bodied with an absolutely wonderful sessionability about it. Carbonation felt fine. ABV felt fine. Crisp bitter piney sort of finish.
Overall, pretty nicely done AIPA, I see a bunch of mixed reviews on this, but not sure what to think other than I think it's pretty well made and would be great with it's respected food.

The Hunter was gifted this beer. It was an afterthought, truly. My ex was trying to make amends. A lot of beers are compared to Pliny and, truth is, a lot of stuff brewed on the West Coast is trying to capture its essence. If I were blindfolded, I'm not sure I could discern the difference between the two. This is a magnificent beer. Simcoe hops in your face, with that creamy finish that is only rivaled by few. Just wow. Bitter, piney, citrusy, balanced. Perfect. This is a great beer!

Slightly hazed golden orange with one finger of dense white head that lasts an average amount of time but leaves a curtain of fine bubble lace on the sides. The smell is light pine citrus tropical fruit and bread crust malts.
Taste is up front hop bill but remarkably diverse flavors making for a complex flavor experience. The malts are fairly big as well which helps tame some of the pine notes that continue to build on the back and sides of the tongue. Mouth feel is medium and creamy from the plentiful carbonation. Overall a very nice effort from a local brewery that is new to me. Good job on this complex and tasty IPA.

Back in PDX on tap @ Hawthorne Fred Meyer!

Pours a rich brassy copper w/ fresh, low micro head & lively carbonation from my hinge-top growler. Aroma of sticky malt & pine. Brings the big hops right before the dry, oily malt body gives way to serious hop nuance & utter bitter ruination of the palate. This is most definitely the epitome of a dry & dank IPA, & it lacks only in aroma to challenge Pallet Jack & Wanderlust for my favorite! I'm giddy when I find it!

22oz bomber bought from Roth’s Vista Market in Salem OR. $4.99 Clear golden coloured ale with a smallish bubbly white head. Huge hop aromas..the lightness of the colour fooled me !Piney, floral ..huge and fresh. Taste has the large hoppiness, but also has a creamy caramel malt backing. Nice thickish creamy mouth feel. A good IPA from a newish brewer.

Blind Pig or even PtE came to mind after the first few sips. Not quite on that level, but was very impressed and hope to see more of this around.
