It’s more bitter rather than floral and has a crisp, clean finish.

Bottle. Pours a crystal clear amber color with a moderate pillowy off-white head on it. Nose has a nice little bit of floral tones to it with a subtle malt backbone coming off. Taste is actually a little toasty up front with a subtle bitterness coming through afterwards. Decent brew.

slightly cloudy light amber pour with massive head - aroma of malt and bread - nice toasted malt flavor with a really great hop flavor (now I know why they call them noble hops!)

Rating from notes from trip to Oregon. Bought in bomber in gas station driving across Oregon mountain range, important because it was a crucial commodity for said trip. Solid, bright ale, would recommend for sure especially in similar situation!!
