Pours a pleasing tan. Nice notes of classic IPA hops on the aroma, and definitely all the right notes on the palate. Citrusy orange with some piney goodness. Just an overall all around well done IPA

Canned on date 1-21-16. Another great canned ipa added to crowed Portland market. Hop profile is a little different more subdued and balanced with an earthy pine spice quality. Bitterness is right on and drinkable not taste bud destroying. Hopefully this beer takes off and sales well so the turnover brings us fresh batches.

Very good cask ipa, on cask at Cask Days 2016. Fresh and well hopped. Very drinkable. Yellow-orange with big bubbles. A lesser known gem at the fest.

golden colored beer poured from the can. minimal head and lower carbonation, but a big nose of peach, Hawaiian papaya, and a little hay. some tangy, juicy qualities on the tongue, with moderate bitterness consistent with the can's declaration of 65 IBU. medium body overall. not quite as exciting as i had remembered, but another solid ipa from the pacific northwest.

Honestly my review would go up, but the can had a late March production date, so the nose wasn't their at all. The taste was still solid.

Excellent! Prominent hop flavor, well balanced with malty goodness. Fruity nose and complex secondary flavors. Would definitely get again.

32 oz growler purchased from Growl Movement in Salem OR $7 Orange coloured beer with a large thick and creamy white head. Nice fruity, piney hop aromas. Taste similar to aroma with a hint of orange marmalade and a chunky maltiness. Moderate mouth feel and medium cabonation. A nice everyday IPA
