3.1/5 rDev -14.4%
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.

Pours a slightly hazy amber with a very thick and rather persistent fluffy eggshell head that pillows nicely. Aroma is more fruity than hoppy - largely apple and pear, but with an underpinning of Mandarin orange. Hoppy flavor has a nice fruity undertone, and here the citrus dominates the pomme. Texture is firm, smooth and fairly fizzy, leaving a nice hoppy finish.
