Solid orange appearance, 1/2" off white head. Aroma was bitter and woodsy.

Taste dropped old school pine and grapefruit like citrus notes with ample bitterness. Relative dry finish, I don't think there was much, if any crystal malt in this one.

Does nothing bad, does everything better than average.

I initially had this in a 22 oz bomber, poured into a glass. It was fine, definitely worth having again, but nothing extra special in today's world of multiple choices.
Then while on a mini-vacation on the Olympic peninsula, I saw it on the brew list at Michael's restaurant in Port Angeles. So, I ordered it, and man it tasted so great with my steak dinner. Perhaps it was fresher on tap, perhaps it was the environment of a very neat dining establishment, but either way, I am impressed with this offering. :^)

Great mouthfeel and great taste. To compete with the big boys, this needs a higher ABV.

Sweet and tangy hoppy brew with a touch of caramel. Golden amber in the tall glass. Light body Modest aromatics but it has a brief nose of malt and sweet flowers. Some flowery and grainy flavors.

There is even a touch of a candy flavor that makes me think of a Tripel. The bitterness, however, sweeps all before it. Long bitter aftertaste. There are some brief pleasures here but it's not very drinkable for me; hard core bitterness addicts may find it satisfying. From the 22 oz bottle bought at Bottleworks in Seattle.
