McMenamins Edgefield Birthday 2017 — photo 49 of 59: A pint of Zapatron IPA which I ordered at the Power Station Pub, one of eleven venues for eating and drinking on the McMenamins Edgefield property in Troutdale, Oregon, on the eastern edge of the Portland metro area. I got the beer in a plastic cup and sipped it while walking around the grounds, enjoying the festivities celebrating the Edgefield property’s 106th birthday. According to the brewer:
“Here to zap your taste buds is our new IPA! Bright and balanced, this beer offers a tropical blast of flavors thanks to the Mosaic, Amarillo, Citra hops, along with the special HBC 342 Experimental Hops. Notes of pineapple, citrus, and berry play a role in the aroma and flavor profile that complement the light malt character. So sit back, get amped, plug in, stay current and enjoy!” Measurements: 6.5% ABV • 49 IBUMy notes from that day read: “It is OK, but nothing special ... seems a bit hoppier than IBU 49 ... I would not get it again ... the Ekuanot was better.” July 8, 2017. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
