I most recently had this on tap, though I've enjoyed it out of the bottle several times. By the time I got the beer, most of the head had dissipated. The beer is quite a lovely copper color. It has a subtle, somewhat unassuming smell. Though its not that bitter, it has a very bright citrus bite to it that really makes it enjoyable. The body is quite smooth, and the malt body compliments the hop aroma well.
The beer pairs well with asian foods, and with trivial pursuit, or whatever it is you do in the evenings with your drinking buddies. Another good Oregon beer.
Serving type: on-tap
