750 ml ceramic bottle poured into a Rogue tumbler
A- Dark orange-brown, with haziness. Creamy off white head has good retention. Some lacing.
S- Biscuit and caramel background. Earthy and citrusy hop notes.
T- Grapefruit rind. Biscuit and caramel hold up from the nose.
M- Medium body. Pretty easy to drink for such a big beer. Bitter finish, of course.
O- This is good, but a lot of dull bitter hop character. I'm more of a juicy, citrusy kinda guy.
Serving type: bottle

Got a growler on the way out of Portland, bring it on the plane !
Light orange, clear IPA. Nice 1/2 inch white foamy head poured into my 10 barrel medium side snifter.
Mild bite from the IPA, nice mild grapefruit, hoppy flavor, very pleasant to drunk, even though it is over 9 %.
Mouthfeel seems 'bout right, a little malty goodness when you 'foam' it up in your mouth.
I would drink this every time at the airport, a nice find there , will probably add it in the cart now, from time to time. Drink it !
Serving type: growler
