Clear amber with one finger of off white head. Lacing is dense and very fine.
Smell is floral, grainy.
Taste is floral hops with a fair amount of bready malt. A bit of lemon toward the end.
Mouthfeel is average and just enough carbonation.
Overall a tasty beer.

A half finger of head on a clear, copper body.
the aroma is lemon and honey with a wonderful floral scent.
The taste is medium bitterness beginning to end and a faint sweetness; comfortable.
The mouth is moderate carbonation and medium body.
Enjoyable and good.

Poured from a bomber into a pint glass. Reviewed live. Go Timbers!

A- Half a finger, rather pitiful head. Very little retention. Large soap-like bubbles remain on the edges. Some ringed lacing when agitated. Light copper color with semi-clarity. An inauspicious start to a beer I had higher hopes for.

S- Can you smell water? Very watery sort of smell, some floral hops, but too diluted a smell for an APA, one of my favorite styles of beer.

T- That's better. Still watery, but the floral hops become far more pronounced. Very slight bitterness. Still unimpressive.

M- Water. Wet finish.

O- Unimpressed. Like the Timbers' chances in MLS this year, this is weak. Unfortunately.

new bottle with the new label! looking sweet.

appearance - golden, clear, medium head and retention

smell - nice hop profile, pine and pineapple

taste - the dry hop really comes out on this one, very hop forward, delicious

mouthfeel - medium body, medium carbonation, slightly dry

overall - fresh and hoppy, but light enough to be a pale, really delicious brew
