Draft at the Tugboat Brewing Co. in Portland, OR on 27 May 2013. Poured a clear amber colour with a dense white head. Very sweet aroma; boiled sweets, sherbet and some fruity hop notes. Initial flavours were pine needles, soft fruit and chewy malt. Caramel, hay and resin on the finish. Not too taken.

Average beer. There was an off after taste that distracted from the enjoyment of this beer. It was a little flat and warm, so I will need to try another sample to see if it was just a bad pour. Overall disappointing, especially coming from a good Oregon brewery.
