Reviewed from notes. The appearance has a golden yellow colored body with a one finger white foamy head that quickly dies to a film and barely leaves any lacing. Streams of carbonation are seen rising. The smell is lightly hopped up front, still a nice dosage of caramel malts appear. The taste is mainly sweet, becomes slightly bitter, and has a sticky sweet aftertaste and finish. On the palate, she sits about a light to medium, comes across fairly sessionable, and has an adequately carbonated for the style and for me. Overall, this seems to be a bit sweeter than most AIPAs, could be borderline EIPA b/c of strong malty presence I say this is good for the style and good for me, I would have it again.

Classic one hop ipa, in the pacific northwest style. Similar to deschutes inversion, and sierra nevada pale.

This beer is fine, forgettable, unremarkable in any way. It seems like an adequate, though lazy production of an IPA. Hence this lazy review.

I swear this beer has gone through some changes, but as always, perhaps it is just a lupulin threshold shift, but I really don't think so, I used to drink a ton of this stuff.

Anyways, sometimes dark yellow, sometimes orange, it has a 1/2" white head on the top. The aroma was always pretty muted relatively speaking, c hops ya know?

Taste, at times it was a bitter bomb, other times it came across, malty, woody, earthy. Really good price on these though, you can sometimes find them for less than $1 a bottle in the 12 packs.

So I dunno, it was an old favorite, but then it seemed to just not have enough. And I mean, SNPA is still my favorite beer of all time, so I dunno, I don't think its solely bc its an old recipe with only c hops. . .

I bought a six pack of this "IPA" because it is a local Oregon brewery and had a neat blue color. It was a normal price for a six pack of craft, around $9, so I wasn't suspicious or anything. It said "ridiculously tasty" on the label, which made me hesitate, I almost put it back. I bought it anyway, and it is disgusting. It isn't an IPA. I don't taste any hops, just nasty caramel. I'm giving it away to friends. It isn't even good enough to keep for beer bread.
