Poured from a growler at a day old. Pours a deep golden amber with a thick tan foam head. The nose is of malt and light tree bark. Taste is malt forward. Caramel sweetness to it along with herbs, grasses and a very faint citrus lemon peel. The lemon peel is almost herbal tea like or medicinal. Medium to full body with a semi crisp clean finish. Good beer.

I had this beer on-tap in a pint glass at Collins Pub in Seattle.

Appearance: rich golden hue with a dash of haze, strong effervescence, and thick finger of tan foam. A nice lace is left on the glass; a beautiful IPA.

Smell: herbal, earthy hops over a toasty-ish base. Not too bad.

Taste: herbal and quite bitter; the base is a little sweet but not cloying. Malt is toasty rather than caramelly; a very solid IPA.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body but a huge carbonation and big, if ephemeral, creaminess.

Overall: I like this IPA a lot. Bitter but not overwhelming, sweet but with a dry herbiness. I dig it.

On tap at Pour House Grill in Bend OR. Never heard of this brewery before but they have certainly made a great impression. Bartender told me they won GABF for this brew a few years back. Def worth trying if you can get your hand on it.

L- clear amber color. Poured with a half inch head that dissipates fairly quickly

S- pear, citrus, floral.. not the strongest flavors on the nose.

T- fresh bread, pine, slight grapefruit,
Unique smooth ipa that to me tastes more like a pale ale. Very good.

The flavor hits with strawberry, sweet melon, biscuity, drives with malt onto a earthy and piney bitterness. A well balanced IPA with the hops driving some quite interesting flavors not generally found in IPA, albeit with a dominant malt character.

32 oz crowler. Pours hazy light amber gold, thin white head fades leaving some rings of lace. Sweet melony aroma. Sweet malt taste, tons of piney hop bitterness. Tropical melony notes. Medium slick feel.

Had on tap at the Loyal Legion in SE Portland. Nice golden amber color with a slight haze. Smell is of citrus, grass, and earthy notes. The flavor is citrus, pine, and herbs. The maltiness is more subdued, and the hops speak with this beer. Resinous mouthfeel. Overall an excellent IPA.

On tap at Sassy’s, Portland.
Crusty white over light amber. 4
Bright Simcoe-esque passionfruit and grass. 4
Light caramel then mango, lemon rind, and cat. 4.25
Soft, light, smooth. 4.25

Light as a feather. 25 IBUs tells the story: all aroma hops. No hint of 7.3% and a low malt load. No crystal is the way forward. 4.5
