This seasonal offering was sampled at the brewery on the Oregon coast -- so good, I brought home a growler.

It pours with a big, creamy white/tan head that leaves a thick lacing on the glass. With a beautiful orange/amber color, the first thing that hits your senses is the aroma -- pure hops, big and powerful. The full, creamy mouthfeel carries a well balanced flavor that is surprisingly lacking in bitterness and actually somewhat light -- until the aftertaste, when the hop bitterness takes hold and grows. Never biting, however, it is a smooth, clean drinking brew that I could enjoy a lot of. The growler may have made it home with me, but it is unlikely to survive for long.

Pours a finger and half of head on medium straw colored body.
The aroma is pine and more pine.
The taste is a bold pine bitterness with a good malt backup to balance it out nicely.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
An enjoyable and solid ale.
