on tap at the brewery, Portland

Hazy dark orange with white film.
Creamsickle nose!
Creamsickle! LIght caramel with big, tight orange hops.
Strawberry finish and lingering nettle bitterness.
Oily, lt-med, some chew.

Amarillo, Cascade, Centennial, and Citra

Nice, bright citrus. Citra doesn’t stand out, but melds with the other hops. Clean and sessionable.

Also do a late-hopped red that reminds me of 5AM Saint and a DIPA with lots of pomegranate + blood orange - brewery is off to a good start.

Had pint on tap at their tavern. Golden amber, almost no head. Aroma is earthy and herbal with some lemon and bread malt. Flavor is watery, kind of thick and chewey. Yeast, grass, and light malt. Some bitterness in the aftertaste, but rather piney and earthy. Not really well balanced. I would not recommend this beer, or drink it again.
