Appearance - Clean white one-finger head. Clear light amber body with a hint of ruby.
Smell - Grapefruit and body odor. Thanks to my wife for ruining it by mentioning the BO. Now I can't avoid thinking it.
Taste - Bitter. Grapefruit and grass clippings. Tastes like mowing the lawn when you have Spring allergies, if there was a way to describe that. Pollen. Citrus peel. Not a pale ale fan, so I'm begrudgingly grading within the style.
Mouthfeel - Okay. Nothing special, but nothing that detracts from the character.
Drinkability - Interesting. Glad I tried it. Will not go out of my way to pick up another one.
Serving type: nitro-tap

Disappointed with this offering. Checked the freshness date, and was OK (still 2 months to go), but this beer didn't have any pizazz, almost like to was sitting around too long. Don't want to low-rate it, because I am a fan of the Black Butte Porter from Deschutes, but this was lacking.

on tap at Doubletree Hilton Hotel, Portland
Dark amber with white film.
Dark toast, orange rind, and pine on the nose.
Caramel and peach sweetness with lots of candy, then resin and tangelo hops end.
Mango finish and dry linger.
Medium, chewy, round.
Candy sweet - very entry level. No IBU bite, and cloys a bit. Slight sandpaper bitterness as it warms, but just not what I’m looking for in an APA.
