Found an old review in a pocket of some pants. Must have been from a cooler time of year. I know it was shared by a friend who got this in Bend.

Pours a bright and slightly hazy orange color with a decent white head.

Aromas are lightly sweet, some sugars, citrus hops, and caramel malts.

Taste starts of sweet with malty creaminess, some bread dough, and light caramel. Finish has a nice slightly bitter orange flavor and some general citrus notes. Crisp and somewhat dry. Beer is not overly bitter, and is pretty nicely balanced.

Mouthfeel is good. Full bodied, and fairly smooth.

Overall a pretty nice beer. Drinkable, and pleasant, with enough flavor to keep it interesting.

Snagged a bottle of this at a new Whole Foods in NE PDX.

Never seen anywhere... and after trying their IPA for the first time a few days ago... I am already a big fan.

- Dark clear copper with a thin white foamy head... down toa swamp of white lace-maker.

- Sweet caramel malts with a brown sugary apple scent... bitter citrus hops galore.... fruit salad.

- Surprisingly light flavor up front with a sweet applewood-like flavor... seriously almost oak and wood... very flavorful on the swallow and finish.... grains, barley, earthiness.. sweet hops... pine, citrus, fruit salad...

- Medium bodied as stated.... bit chewy, somewhat dry....

- Overall a very unique brew that I could swear has sat in a few oak barrels for awhile. Very smooth and drinkable, and not overly strong to the point where drinkability suffers.
