This fine libation starts off with aromas piercing your olfactory receptors, triggering familiar notes of yellow passion fruit, Autumn Glo apricots, Ambersweet Tangors, and Angel’s Trumpet . Much of this is thanks to the Indie bred Strata (X-331) grown at Coleman’s Alluvial Farm in the Willamette Valley terroir, the Citra (HBC394) grown by Pat Smith at low sloping Tributary Farms in Granger, Washington, and Azacca hops (ADHA483) from the distinguished Roy family out of Moxee, Washington. Carefully timed hop additions also benefit from phenylethyl acetate and geranyl acetate esters and some propanols that our house yeast likes to throw during its prolonged fermentation at a slightly cooler than normal range. These aromatics are subsequently reinforced by profound flavors of Haden Mangos, Cara Caras, and European Marram Grass on the back end. A soft and silky mid palate mouthfeel, much like the feathers of a Cochin, overtakes the center of your lingual sulcus thanks to subtle, thoughtful additions of Elwha River Spelt from the Eastern terroir of the Palouse Valley and mid-season white wheat grown in the verdant Skagit Valley, just a few miles from Padilla Bay, where the spot prawns are in the midst of their new lifecycle. They also impart a stunning stable wisp of haze, a pleasant picture from start to finish, only the finest for you and yours.
