I like the word in the description, that says "glowing", it fits. Beautiful hazy medium golden with high, rocky head; big, chunky bits of lacing. Light but pungent hop aroma, hops and malt represent equally in the taste, some spiciness. Slight astringency burn at the finish. Really, really good.

Had a pint at the Taproom today for $5.50.

Beer was served golden with a very nice white head that had some hang time.

Nose had hints of citrus and malts.

Taste was dominated with a pilsner like malt backbone that was complimented by citrus with a touch of pine.

Mouthfeel was medium bodied and fairly smooth and refreshing.

Overall a serviceable beer that was a pleasure to have. Definitely not a standout but I suspect this is a staple of the DM family and felt the need to give it a spin.

My first Portland IPA order on tap. Expectations were high! Floral, lightly citrusy aroma. Some orange zest and blossoms. Some sweet malt on the end. Paired well with pizza.
