To quote the Portland Mercury:
I imagine this is what my parent’s apartment smelled like when they lived in Astoria back in the seventies.Vortex is extraordinary on the palate. The first sip brings a bold hit of chocolate, with a little of that hops dopiness, like you just bit the corner off a pot brownie. Then, a rolling fruitiness rises with raspberry and banana tones. Along with the fruit comes a wave of bitterness. But the awesome thing about the bitterness is its wave-like quality—it comes on slow, peaks, and fades, leaving very little mouth drying astringency. For a 97 IBU beer, I find it very pleasant and drinkable, while remaining dynamic and interesting.
this is exactly what it is, tastes like they used pot in the brew with little chunks of it floating in the beer. not pleasant to look at but very enjoyable
