Initially my taste buds were like?.wow. This is what a Douglass Fir tree tastes like but after downing a few more 16 oz?s it was a bit smoother but a big aftertaste of something I cannot describe. And after I polished off my 8th beer I passsssssssssssss??????out! I?m back?Would buy again! profile - September 26, 2020
From bottle bought at retail. First thing I would say is if you don?t mind a little bitterness but and enjoy this beer. Pours a beautiful red-brown color with a light brown head that dissipates after the pour. Subtle malt flavor at first and then a great malt/hop mix in the middle finishing with a slight bitterness that is really good. Great beer.

I bought this as a four pack. I did not like it at first. The flavor grew on me after the 2nd beer. Smooth red pale that goes down smooth. Would buy again

Balanced IPA flavor with maltiness to smooth it out. One of my must-haves of the fall.

Strong aroma malt. Nice rich Amber color tan head short lived. Malty smooth

Nice IPA not too hoppy with a strong flavor. Darker than most IPAs
