COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This big, bold copper-colored ale showcases Munich & Crystal malts to create a big supportive body on which we layer our favorite Washington hops. Chinook & Cascade provide citrus and piney flavors, while Northern Brewer adds a hint of mint. Dry-hopping with Cascade and Columbus increases the beer’s hoppy aromas. Malt, hops and yeast-derived fruitiness combine to create our most complex offering.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - OCT 17, 2014
Serving: bottle from State Line Liquors. It pours an almost cloudy dark amber with a thin off white ring for a head. Slightly minty and herbal nose with some toasted malt. The flavor leads with the hops but gives way to a heavy dose of sweet toasted dark bread and then back to the a minty hop finish. Rather full bodied.

liquidhedonism (178) - Beaverton, Oregon, USA - SEP 24, 2014
22 oz bottle from Fred Meyer in Hillsboro, OR. Aroma is grassy and piney, with hints of barnyard, resin, and isopropyl alcohol. Mouthfeel starts crisp, thick, sweet, and bitter, but quickly switches to a long, dry, and bitter finish. Not as amazing as I thought I remembered this one being, but still pretty great.
