I remember really liking this beer. A lot. What happened? Looks great in the glass. Aroma disappoints. Butter and citrus zest. I dig the citrus, not the butter. Flavour is again buttery. Very full, viscous mouthfeel. Diacetyl run amok. Bummer. I really liked this beer in the past, but the flabby butter character is a big let down. Oh well.

First had: on tap at Deschutes, Portland, OR

Poured a clear orange-amber with a white head that was small but still retained well and left some spotty lacing. Aroma of citrus and piney hops mostly. Good balance of bready malts and citrus/pine hops in the taste, citrus pith and splashes of mango. Medium-bodied and very solid overall.

Yes, yes, yes, yes omg, omg, omg!!!

Appearance: Clear amber. White head that dissipates to a thin layer. Good lacing.

Smell: Beautiful hop aroma with a very balanced malt backbone. Hops are floral and the malt is nice and bready.

Taste: follows the nose nicely.

Mouthfeel: probably the most drinkable american beer I've ever had. Perfect carbonation. Very very smooth.

Overall: Its a crime against humanity that this isn't a year around beer. The price is supremely cheap for the quality.

Had on-tap at Deschutes in Portland, OR. Poured a reddish/orange (almost amber) color with a small white head that retained well and left spotty lacing on the glass. Had an aroma of fruity/floral and resinous hops. Definite taste of caramel, mango? and citrus. Very nice hop profile that is balanced well with sweet malts.

Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth and drinkable...a very enjoyable beer.
