Spent a month in Oregon. I tried a handful of local beers and this was by far the best.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.75

Dark orangey amber color in the wine tumbler. Plenty of foam that lasts well. Quite attractive and the mouthfeel is spritzy and full. Not much of an aroma for a hoppy beer.

Some hints of malty sweetness, but briefly. This is the classic bitter IPA. This has the bitter, burnt biscuit taste. It even has that baking powder astringency. A nutty sweet flavor almost saves it, but then the hop machine rolls over everything. Some modest aromatic notes, but mostly it's just bitter.

After half a glass this seems harsh and penitential. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Pioneer Market in La Conner.
