The head is yellow-tinged cream and the beer is red-orange sienna. Northwest-style hop scent is the foremost feature of the fresh-smelling aroma. The malts are smooth and subtle in the nose, underlying sharper citrus and grassiness. The complex malt flavor makes for a viscous mid-mouth bready sensation. Striking citrus at the tip of the tongue mellows to sweet caramel, pale malt, and earthy grains in pleasant carbonation. The aftertaste is neither strong nor unsatisfying.

This beer is less bitter-refreshment forceful than your typical west coaster like SNPA. The malt body is robust and comforting, but does not tower over the flavorful hops and esters. I recommend this beer to anyone, especially if you appreciate northwest pales.
