This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

"Yet another brew in our series of experimental hop beers. This hop from Yakima, Wa displays an extremely clean bitterness with a great floral and lemon zest aroma."

Had on-tap at Deschutes in Portland, OR. Poured a nice clear amber color with a small white head that dissipated slowly, leaving nice lacing throughout the glass. Aroma was of sweet, floral hops and malts. Taste was citrusy, floral, sweet...I think the malts really smoothed this beer out, but the downside to that was the hop profile being slightly overpowered by the malt base.

Medium in body with moderate carbonation. A tiny bit syrupy, which I found odd. Overall, a very drinkable beer that I enjoyed for a short session.

First had: on tap at Deschutes, Portland, OR

Poured reddish amber with a cap of white head that displayed decent retention and lacing. Aroma typical of a exemplary American IPA, sweet malt base overlaid with pleasant hoppiness, citrus mainly. Taste followed the aroma well, with a nice citrus hoppiness, floral and sweet, solid malty base. Medium-bodied, and very nice overall. Nothing you haven't had before, but still nice.
