Ahh, the Bend Brewing Company.... In a state with so many brewery options, this is a great gem.
It pours darker amber, hazy with a tight head.
The big aromatic hops reveal a mild pine.
The hop builds in the medium body, bitter with a mild pine on the tongue. It is flowery and hoppy 'til the end.
The aftertaste - bitter on the tongue, rests on the palate for awhile before having a clean finish. Bitter, but refreshing!
I brought a Hop Head IPA home in a bottle - We'll sample that another day...
