Served from the bottle into a nonic glass.

A- Poured a clear orange color with tons of streaming carbonation and frothy white head that left glass-coating lace.

S- Lots of bright citrusy and floral hops with cracker malt backbone. Not a very strong aroma, but very crisp hop character that is very well balanced with the malt character.

T- Lots of bright citrusy and floral hops with a nice cracker malt backbone with notes of bread and caramelized sugar.

M- Very crisp, dry, refreshing, light bodied, and prickly carbonation.

O- This is a simple and incredibly enjoyable summer ale. The bright and delicate hop character blends perfectly with the malt character.

12 oz bottle purchased in Eugene and consumed on the banks of Oregon’s McKenzie River.
4.25 3.3 3.5 4
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.
