12 oz bottle purchased in Eugene and consumed on the banks of Oregon’s McKenzie River.

Appearance: clear deep amber with a semi-durable, frothy bone-colored head. Excellent lacing.
Aroma: herbal/floral hops with a good bit of biscuit malts.
Flavor: Hop intensity in this “summer style” ale is about that of a typical APA. Fruity/herbal hops with hints of citrus. The hop load is higher than the flavor level of the malt base. Mild+ bitterness.
Feel: Lively medium carbonation. Near medium body.

Brilliant deep golden with copper highlights and a frothy cream head. Aroma is zesty, with grass, light floral notes, and that signature Amarillo savory character. There's a hint of bready malt. Flavor is slightly fruity, likely attributable to specialty malt, with floral, perfumey notes, a touch of citrus, and a grassy, almost piney, earthy, crisp finish. Very clean and refreshing, though the perfumey character is somewhat overwhelming.

12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Pours a slightly hazy medium copper with a half finger white head. Head retention really isn't all that great but there is some ok lacing.

Aroma really brings out some orange peel and lemon zest. Maybe a little fruit punch too. It is very juicy but not so much tropical. Very little malt in the nose.

The flavor has loads of lemon up front backed up by some orange. There is a strong graininess that quickly rushes in but it works well to balance out the hops. Just a fairly mild bitterness that lingers and helps to cleanse the palate.

Overall, a nice version of a blonde ale. Maybe a bit more hoppy than other examples but it is a great thirst quencher with good flavor to boot.

Bottle came from a too warm cooler. Net result being that some qualities of the beer are exaggerated good, others less. Appearance is great with a huge frothy head and lots of lace. Aroma is fruit and hops with a little grain and malt. Body because of temp is hard to gauge. Aftertaste may have been affected by a shot of rye whiskey which gave it some not so good flavs.
