3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the Hood River Hops fest. Soft orange with a thin white head. Fairly watery palate, with a balanced hop finish. I didn’t really care for the flavor that fresh hop liberty hops put off, sort of damp and vegital. Overall the beer just didn’t come together for me, rather nice up front, but the fresh hopping just didn’t add much.

Tap @ Green Dragon... Poured an unfiltered orange with a thin, off-white head. Aroma of hops and a tart yeast quality. Dry and well carbonated. Freshly hopped with noticeable spiced yeast flavors and citrus fruits. Spiced, herbal/earthy finish.
