Part of a flight at the brewery with Dadbra. Sorry to compare to NB, but this is like a hoppy Fat Tire. Nice grapefruit tendencies, with a funny kinda phenolic clove dimension that came out of nowhere. Interesting.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Floral aroma, light copper color with medium body. Hops take a prominent role, but are held in check with a solid malt bill...

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Bailey’s Taproom, Portland. Fresh open barn door aroma. Reddish-brown color, near flat. Heavy hop hit initial; bitterness intensifies in mid palate and then balances out nicely; finish lengthens the bitterness. Thin-medium body, good carb tingle. This one is all about the hops. Belching hops, in fact.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Another good red, copper colored body, with a nice hope nose like pine, however need a maltier body for better balance.
