On tap @ Bend Brewing Co. Deep mahogany brown with a small head. Big PacNW hop aroma of pine, citrus and flowers, light dusty cocoa presence. Flavor is lots of bitter hops and light bitter chocolate with mild roasty malt sweetness. Medium body with average carbonation and a dry, slightly chalky mouth feel.
