Serving: On tap at Rubirosa Pizzeria in Manhattan
Served: 8 June 2016

This review fell through the cracks. As I remember it though, the beer was not a looker- much more of a turbid looking brown than a clean amber ale. The beer had a sweet, caramel malt nose and soft herbal hop notes. The beer was hoppier than I was expecting, though I suppose I shouldn't have been surprised given it was a "Pacific Northwest" beer. The flavor was relatively soft and muted, though this made for excellent pairing with the fantastic pizzas at the restaurant. The beer complimented the flavors in the sauce and crust without overwhelming the palate. Very drinkable, and overall a good amber ale.

deep dark amber color, nearly brown. Clear. Thin had but it lasts and leaves a blanket/lattice of lace.

Freshly cut pine boughs and deep dark caramel are the smells I get.

The hop is up front but mild. If one holds the liquid in the mouth, there's a blend of dry toasted malts and sharp pepper. The swallow is all harsh biting bitterness. Leans thin body wise with elevated effervescence. I noted some earth tones in the aftertaste.

Not a big fan of brown ales lately, but this was nice. Got a growlerful at the brewery and took it home to enjoy with the little lady and some bbq for my birthday. We sat on the deck, ribs grillin and pouring this deep brown ale into continually emptying glasses. She enjoys the sweeter flavor of brown ale, but this had enough flavor, hop and malt, to tempt my discerning palate.

a real hoppy red this one is. doesn't look too impressive, almost flat in the glass its served in, but smells and tastes great. a perfect mix of biscuit slightly caramelized grain, flavorful but not overbearing, and then heavy C type hops and oils and balancing bitterness. a lot more than I was expecting in a beer simply listed as an amber. there is some initial sweetness, brown sugar and specialty red malt it seems, then the start of the hops is leafy and vegetal, almost broccoli or steamed peas or something. turns quickly into the more piney northwestern thing, which makes sense with the name now. lots of body on it, and a bitterness carried out much longer than the finishing malt sweetness (which I prefer in the style). more carbonation than it looked like it would have too, I like the feel quite a bit. quite heavy overall though, it felt a little stronger than this, and as such probably fits the fall/winter calendar better than it might in warmer weather. good beer, but not the best of their work in my opinion.
