On tap @ Portland Public House. Clear light orange/amber with a small off white head. Typical PacNW hop aroma with a light caramel, bready malt. Flavor is fairly bitter with some light malt presence and a clean bitter finish. Medium to light body with active carbonation and a slightly dry mouth feel. Solid IPA all around, this 427 hop seems very similar to the typical citrus, floral PacNW hops.
