Served from a bomber into a pilsener sampling glass. With a moderate pour I needed to back off a bit to avoid overfill, and ended up with a billowing, frothy and creamy 1.5 inch head, pale tan in color. The beer itself is a deep copper color with light carbonation.

I really dig the aroma of this beer- I have a rather poor nose, so anything that I can really SMELL is a good bonus- as long as I'm not just smelling hops and nothing else...Definitely some grassy and herbal hops on the nose, but you can still smell some caramelly malt. The flavor is rich, complex and malt forward (without neglecting the hops entirely). I perceive notes of caramel, toffee, dark bread, nuts, and dark fruit, with a nice but not overpowering background of leafy and herbal hop bitterness. Quite a clean finish despite the fruity notes, with just a tad of lingering coffee-like bitterness with a bit of dank herb. The body is medium with a lightly creamy mouth feel that invites more sips.

I was afraid that this might be a crazy hop bomb (Spokane's getting pretty close to Seattle), but this beer is true to its style, and lets the malt characters shine through without neglecting the hops. An excellent example of the ESB style.
