3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Piney, citrus hops with a grassiness to it on the nose. Slightly hazy, dark golden color, bordering on copper. A nice shot of grass that finishes dry. Malt is hidden, playing a supporting role in the middle palate. A nice balance of body and carbonation. Good pale - enough flavor for the afficionados but still sessionable.

Twenty-two oz. bottle from Food Front Co Op in Portland, OR. Thick & foamy light tan head. Hops dominate the palate. Aroma mild. Light finish. Tasty beer with homemade bean burritos.

Maybe it was just a bad pint, but I thought the beer was a little bland in taste. Could have been I was comparing it to the previous glass of their IPA. Probably a decent beer. Looks nice and smells good, but the flavor falls a little short.
