Live rate from the brewpub. Burnt tangerine pour with a 1/2 inch ivory head that left some lacing. Aroma is orange peel, lemongrass, and honey. Not a lot of pine in this one and has some smoky/spicy qualities. Medium mouthfeel. Good not great.

Tap at Portland pub, the first thing that struck me was the huge fluffy head, next the big citrus aroma, orange and a little grapefruit but all those other tropical fruits Citra brings to the table. Flavor was a bit of a let down, it didn’t pick up all the cues from the aroma. Finished crisp. I wouldn’t want a keg of this but a few more pints would please me.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On at Deschutes Brewpub in Portland, pours a dark, hazy orange with a small beige head. Aroma of citrus hops, fresh citrus and tropical fruit juices and some biscuit malt to back. Flavour of citrusy hops, fresh juices and tangerine, not much malt flavour, just enough to back the high juicy hop content. Very juicy and refreshing, though quite unbalanced toward the hops – could use more of a malt backbone. Nevertheless, great stuff.
