Very sharp. Medium amount of hoppiness that doesn’t overwhelm the malt. Easily a red ale. Good example of HUB beer.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours medium amber with a foamy beige head. Aroma is roast malt and a pretty strong dose of resin hop. Medium plus body with foamy carbonation. Flavor is roast malt with a lot of resin hop. Citrus? Maybe. More resin to me. Whatever, it’s really very hoppy. Nice stuff. NW it is!!!!!!!!

Cask at brewery. Medium amber pour with a short white head. Pleasant grapefruity citrus aroma on it. Biscuity, toasty malt with slight caramel notes, finishes with more grapefruit hops and a little resinous bitter. Felt kind of watery on the palate. A simple pale with good hop character.

22. Pours a murky burnished dark brown. Loose tan head. Nice fresh pink grapefruit nose. Creamy medium body with pleasantly soft cottony carb. Toast, caramel, and pink grapefruit on the mid palate. Maybe a bit butterscotchy, but bearable, especially fridge cold. Super easy drinking nice apa. Would easily session this one.

At Oregon Brewers Festival. Decent hops and malt, well-balanced to be deliciously smooth with a bitter finish. A very decent red ale with a West coast twist.
