Another damn solid Barley Browns offering, I'll right a more proper review when I get a better pour, but really digging it right now @ Hop & Brew. Keep on doing what you're doingoing BB!

On tap in Portland.
Clear amber body with fair clarity.
quite hoppy but with average bitterness, at most, for style. In fact, there's a nice note of sweet malts hiding in with the hops. Medium bitterness in the finish with the grapefruit peel bitterness building in the aftertaste with repeated sipping.

Poured from my 1st crowler! Filled 8/30/15 from Growler Guys in PDX.

Looks nearly exactly like Pallet Jack (rich & brassy copper) Head is low, but good carbonation. Nose is subdued hop pine, w/ citrus notes warming up. Taste is dry, a bit watery (in favor of malt, it's fine), & nicely bitter on the finish. With pales like these, session IPAs are of no consequence! The low ABV coupled w/ a great bitter finish makes this my fall-back session! Well done! Not at ALL shocking.
