Nitro tap at the brewpub. Pours amber with a creamy near white head. Light hop aroma. Med body. Flavor is mildly pine over a mildly roasted malt. Think the nitro is adding/exposing a slight tanginess. At 42 IBU should it be hoppier? Is the nitro smoothing down the flavor? Still it drinks well and had a nice lingering bitterness. Washed food down well.

Got this on the nitro tap at the brewery. Not a super flavorful beer but still pleaant. The foam was fine and thick - characteristic of a nitro tap.

Nose is floral, lightly citrusy and some sweet caramel. Pours nice reddish amber with a creamy head on top. Sweet caramel malts and medium bitter floral, perfumey, and citrus hop flavors. Nice floral finish. Creamy body and mouthfeel. The nitro makes this one for sure.

A clear amber in my glass at the brew pub. Not much aroma but the flavor is on. Only a bit of hop balance. Essay drinking and not bad. Good with the wings.

Brewpub tap; advertised as a crisp grapefruit flavor but I didn’t taste much of the grapefruit but did pickup on the bitterness normally associated with the grapefruit; decent safe beer; also had a Nitro Sequoia Red which made the head really pop and cut down on the bitterness a bit; a bit more enjoyable; I rate the nitro as 3.4.

On nitro charge at the brewpub in Everett, Washington. Pours a clear copper amber brew with a creamy and soft off-white head that slowly dissolves to a thin and creamy off-white head with excellent lacing from the nitro pour. Aroma of caramel malt, light apples, brown sugar and roasted nuts. Taste is medium bodied, malty caramel and toffee flavors with a touch of citrus zest. Finish is smooth and creamy with a malty aftertaste and then a mild bitterness.
