Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, golden-orange coloring, with some sediment and carbonation action in the body, and a fluffy, foamy, clingy, white head. Aromas of a solid biscuit and caramel malt backbone, with some citrus notes, candied sugar, roasted notes, subtle cedar and pine, and a balancing bitterness. Flavors are more citrus forward, with lemon and orange making it up, followed by an interesting herbal spice blend, some medicinal characteristics, a tangy caramel backbone, and some subtle resinous qualities. The herbal notes provide an almost astringent feel throughout, on an otherwise mid-bodied beer. The aftertaste is roasted, slightly bitter, and with a tart sweetness from the citrus. Smooth, slightly dry, slightly bitter finish. Interesting brew.

Pours an attractive yellow amber with a decent head in the Timmermans goblet. A pleasant tingle of carbonation. Faint woodsy scent.

There is just a touch of sweet malty flavor at the beginning, with a hint of pears. The the scratchy bitterness takes over. Lots of resiny, barky, herbaceous hops dominate the flavors. Quite a bitter finish without much in the way of aromatics. A grapey hint, then the medicinal rasp.

This is quite drinkable if you like the big hop hammer, but it's not very interesting in any way, and it ends up down that same bitter road. From the 22 oz bottle purchased at Pioneer Market in La Conner.
