Brewery: Hoppworks Urban Brewery (Oregon)
Type: India Red Ale
Appearance / Aroma: Lots of bubbly carbonation, medium cream colour head with lots of thick retention. Nice 6 month copper shine. It smells hoppy when real close, but pretty tame.
Taste / Feel: Definitely a hop first beer, played off by several things: some spicyness, some sweetness (cherries?), but only slightly. It’s a very dry, acidic beer. It charges the mouth. Locally grown hops; they claim sustainability, which is nice. As it warmed up it became a bit of a chore to get through it. Not quite balanced enough for me. Bitterness for its own sake is kinda lame to me personally.
