On tap @ the Fort George Brewery + Public House (Astoria, OR) on 8/31/11. Served in a mason jar.
Pours a slightly hazed copper, with a thin frothy head of bright-white foam. This maintains a solid robustness to the look throughout the duration of the glass, leaving back a sticky smattering of lacing. The aroma smells floral and citric, with a bit of a ripe dankness as well. Some light peppery accents are sprinkled throughout the nose, while malts add a stabilizing balancing sweetness across the back. The herbal textures and citric fruit are standing out to me the most as this warms.
The taste is bitter fruit up front, spreading a raw and earthy bitterness out that is mostly felt in the backend, as the majority of the flavor from the hops has a crisp and refreshing bite to it. Malts add a balancing but mostly neutral sweetness to this, helping keep the focus on the hops. The rawness of the finish does die down a bit as this warms up; leaving back more of a dry pithiness that sticks. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a firm crispness that matches up well with that hop character. This develops a nice quenching feel after a bit, with a low alcohol presence.
Once things started to open up, this wasn’t bad at all, with a focus on refreshing hop flavors and overall drinkability. I would have easily gone for another glass of this.
