Bursting with floral and orange flavors, El Torero is a bullfighter among Northwest IPAs. This beer won’t step out of your way. It wants you to enjoy it.

maybe a little heavy on the crystal malt, this IPA is pleasant enough but a little on the boring side in the grand scheme of things. Sessionable, otherwise get the Yellow Wolf

mike_77 (5173) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - JUL 20, 2014
Copper colour. Quite a lot of fresh pale malts in the aroma. Taste is soft, smooth, low carbonation, easy to drink. Floral hop and a light bittersweet citrusy flavour. Well balanced.
