Just had this one on-tap paired w/ their veggie burger...

This isn't their Workhorse.. or a fancy Lucky 7 IPA.. but it is one all in its own... and very good.

- Dark copper brown color... light fluffy head and lacing all over.. clear, and lightly bubbly..

- Smells of citrus hops... and lots of them.. with strong caramel and barley... little bit of bread.

- Very smooth and very balanced... floral and citrus hops blended perfectly with a rish and smooth caramel malt.. with just the right sweetness....

- Little oily and chewy... but all around very good.

- A very easy drinker... and I wouldn't have guessed this one to even be over 6%... my glass didn't have the chance to warm up... super drinkable and just the right carbonation.. very well carbonated.. almost perfect.

On-Tap @ the NW Public House poured into Shaker glass.

Pours a hazy but glowing orange with a creamy off-white head that never disappears and leaves nice dense lacing down the glass as its drank. The aroma has orange peel, citrus hops, its almost smells sticky, with a touch of caramel malt. The flavor has much of the same with a little more malt to it. It has a lengthy bitterness to it that is sweet. Its medium bodied and sticky. This is a pretty good beer but the alcohol becomes more present as the glass warms up.
