Bottle straight from Portland. Big aromas & flavors of citrusy, bitter, oily hops. Malt balance is there, but the hops really shine. Very fresh & bright tasting. Quite enjoyable.

Bomber from Milwaukie OR to lake beer fridge...fresh. Pours a yellow/orange with ivory head. Nose is combo of sweet malts dominated by grapefruit / melony hops. Taste is again a blend of hoppy bitterness - citrus, grapefruit, pine - with sweetness of melon / malts...finish is dry. Very tasty...wish it wasn’t 2100 miles away. Could use another.
