3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the PDX Green Dragon. Pours dark brown with a small light khaki head. A bit over hopped, I like the more malt forward profiles for these, this was overwhelmed by the hops. Big citrus smack, bitter and sharp. Carbonation amped up to build the hops and bitterness up even more, the malts had no chance in this one. I was really pissed, this was more like a black ipa then a baltic porter, and I remember their barrel aged version being very good.
