3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not sure if this is the "Backdraft" that I tasted at Green Dragon in PDX. Very nice, floral Simcoe hops nose and smooth, floral, piquant bitter flavor. Not too bitter, just right. Poured a bright copper-amber-golden with a healthy fluffy white head that died down a bit after a few moments. The brewer here is quite good.

Tap. Aromas of roasted and bread for the malt, moderate fresh green hops, pine and citrus, and light dough for the yeast, with toffee in the background. head is creamy, white, mostly lasting, with excellent lacing. Flavor starts moderately acidic and finishes moderately acidic and bitter. Palate is light/medium, watery and has a soft to lively carbonation. Okay beer, aroma was good but the taste was a bit flat.
