Bottled on 10/14/15.Pours into an imperial nonic a clear rich brass color with a full one finger sticky white head atop.The hops are somewhat subdued in the nose,there is a light dankness and leafiness but it's actually quite clean.The palate is a little rough around the edges but that's not a bad thing,some dank skunky hop flavors over top of biscuity malts.The hops are a bit "raw" but I like it,the malt profile is much more precise with it's caramel/biscuit flavors,I like it.

22 oz bomber bough from "Lifesource" in Salem OR $4.99 Pours a clear dark orange with a very large bubbly yet thick and creamy head. Rich and malty nose,bready,honeyish but also hops put in a good appearance citric.slight resin. Flavour is decidely on the malt side and is pretty sweet almost too candy sugar sweet for my liking...Sweet toffee..a little hop in the end..not really my thing. Moutheel is OK..the best thing is the hops show up after the beer goes down the gullet. Not impressed..its not bad but not something i would look out again.

22oz bomber. Pours copper with off white 2 finger head. Great head retention. Not much hop on the nose. Nice caramel front with a citrus end and subtle hop bite. Fairly light mouth feel. Nice beer, personally would prefer more hop throughout.

22 oz bottle pour. golden, orange-ish color with decent head. This looked and like a light IPA and drank like one. It's not bad, but probably not something I would buy again. Malt is maybe a bit more forward than I would prefer but that may be a positive for some.

Bod 10/21/15. Reddish orange in color with aromas of light citrus and bit of pine. The flavor is wonderful almost with belgian beer like notes and a subtle spice that is great with the earthy hops. This beer is so drinkable and balanced I would've thought it was an English style ipa.

Picked up a bottle at the Arbor Lodge New Seasons Market - really excited about this brewery and the beer did not disappoint. Pours orange and translucent with a nice thick head that leaves behind a lot of lacing on my glass. Aroma is mostly hops (citrus!)with some sweetness/caramel from the malt. Taste is sweet honey/caramel malt with piney and grapefruit hops, very thick in the mouth. Perfect winter IPA, this is really what they say it is. I really appreciate an IPA that is more than just hops (though this has them, in spades). Looking forward to sampling some of their other beers since the brewery is in my 'hood.
