Notes / Commercial Description:
This ale has its origins in the traditional English style, with a generous helping of American exuberance.

Picked this up at RSVP in portland. I had this once at the brewery but it was a while ago.

Pours an amber golden with a good head to start. It laces a curtain of bubbles on the glasses edgee.

The aroma is subtle with pale and crystal malts along with slight citrus and earthy hops.

I would say this is a hoppyier version of their pale ale. Is is a traditional english in that there is pleanty of malt up front. Thw hops come in and leave an earthy citrus taste on the back of the tongue. A lingering sweet citrus reveals a slight grassy bitterness

Note if you don't like ringwood you probably won't like this beer. But for me its a nice change for the seemingly endless west coast IPAs
