Wasn’t sure on the style here, guessed IPA, I was wrong. Hoppy, lots of citrus hops, floral and great. I get very little malt from this, really enjoyed it though.

Can. Orange pour with tan head. Herbal and grassy, some warmth. On the aromas. Herbal and citrus, some grassy hop flavors, not as warm as aromas would say.

Many winter seasons have passed and I’ve never tried this beer. It ends tonight. It was a hoppy winter ale, nothing special, so I don’t regret waiting all this time.

Drinking from a can, but its amazing. Malty up front followed with strong pine and hoppy bitterness with some sweetish and citrus finish.

liquidhedonism (185) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - NOV 9, 2014
16 oz can. Aroma: malty and piney, with hints of caramel and biscuit. Taste/Palate: thick; starts sweet and creamy, and finishes crisp (almost sharp), with a long bitterness.

julesjis (151) - Oregon, USA - NOV 9, 2014
Poured from a can. Appearance is a darker, syrupy red color. Aroma indicates a malty and not overly spiced beer. Flavor has some sweetness to it, but not sickly sweet like many Winter Ales. Overall it is just a nice, malty, thick but easy drinking beer.

maxwelldeux (3802) - Everett, Washington, USA - OCT 27, 2014
Can. Pours a slightly hazy brown color with a moderate light tan head on there. Nose has some earthy grass elements to it with a bit of bread to it, and seems remarkably fresh. Taste is light and fresh, with a slight bitterness to it. Really nice and easy. I like it.

Lizardking3 (126) - Springfield, Oregon, USA - OCT 23, 2014
Pours a very nice caramel brown with burnt white head. Very floral and citrusy aroma. Taste is immediately floral and citrusy, and the velvety mouth feel is fantastic. Very nice

Salmoniform (1001) - Sweet Home, Oregon, USA - OCT 21, 2014
2014 poured from tallboy to glass. Deep copper hue with creMy off white head that lingered. Aroma is caramel, grapefruit, bread, tangerine, grassy. Mouthfeel is great with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is sweet initially followed by a great hop bitterness. Overall this is a really nice brew.
