R&D Series. Straight outta the Whiteaker, comes NWA (Northwest Ale), an eazy drinking hoppy extra pale ale with attitude. Crafted by Ninkasi’s brewing and Local Distribution teams for local fans, this beer’s subtle tropical, stone fruit and citrus notes are just what the Dr. ordered! Serve Ice cold, and enjoy!

Theydon_Bois (16873) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 23, 2014
Keg at the taproom, 10/11/14. Clear golden with a decent off white swirl and edgeing. Nose is citric rinds, lemon, light pine needle, orange. Taste comprises juicy citrics, caramel malt, orange pith, straw. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close with hop bitterness present. Ok, nothing to get excited about though.

Dark hazy almost murky bronze. This is aptly named. Nice and balanced. Almost like a session apa. Part of a flight.

Poured from tap to glass. Golden hued with nice white head. Aroma is citrus, pine, orange, clean. Mouthfeel is nice with a light body and good carbonation. Taste is dry with a nice bitter finish. Overall this is a pretty nice brew.

bpreo (2529) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JAN 26, 2014
A really tasty APA with local Eugene inspirations. It is suggested to be paired with Barbecue, Fish and Chips, Burgers, Nachos, Sandwiches, and Cheese. Basically, an American beer part of a healthy American meal.
