12 Fl Oz can
Served in a tulip glass

This beer pours a light shade of amber with golden highlights and a slight haze. It is topped with an inch of fluffy, off white head that leaves decent lacing.

It smells of stale hops and malt.

The taste is not fresh. I get caramel malt and some mildly floral flavors with a little bitterness in the finish.

Medium mouthfeel

I got this from a friend in Oregon. I hope this is not what is supposed to taste like.

22oz bottle, good to see more Portland brews making their way north of 49.

This beer pours a hazy, yet bright medium copper amber hue, with two fingers of puffy, densely foamy, and mildly bubbly ecru head, which leaves some attractive layered cloud lace around the glass as it slowly ebbs away.

It smells of biscuity, grainy caramel malt, a strong flintiness, a bit of dry lemon, and earthy, leafy, and grassy hops. The taste is bitter grassy, earthy hops, with only lip service being paid to any citrus or pine notes, a crackery, semi-sweet pale and caramel malt, that same flinty chalkiness from the nose, and a hint of warming alcohol.

The carbonation is active enough to provide a gentle and supportive frothiness, the body a taciturn middleweight, and kind of tacky and edgy in its stillborn attempt at smoothness. It finishes on a strong drying trend, the malt forgoing its stake, while the very English-seeming hops carry on amongst themselves.

Hmmm...it does very well seem that this brewer either inexplicably doesn't know what 'grapefruit and pine' notes are, or they are not so secretly attempting to subvert the colonies to the ways of old (c'mon, 'Burnside'? How more British can you get?). Not a bad tipple, by any stretch, but not much of a 'murkn IPA.
