3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
8th December 2015
Hazy deep amber beer!! Good cream colour head. Palate is smooth and a little soft, mild fine carbonation. Malty! Very malty! Little oxidised caramel and dark toffee. Mild marmalade and pine. Smooth malty finish. That oxidised tasting caramel lingers on. This is what now? Imperial Pils? India Pale Lager? Not very pale is it? An okay malt bomb.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Base Camp. Much darker than expected. Sort of an amber color. Khaki foam. Good enough pineapple hop notes and a little peach. Somewhat citrusy, which is nice. Hints of watermelon gummy candy. The flavor is pretty heavy on grapefruit and watermelon gummies. A nice citric note to it. Some caramel malt, peach, and maybe pine to add just a faint bitterness. Good but sweet.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can from Made in Oregon. Pours dark copper with a 3 finger creamy beige head. Complex floral/malt/wood aroma. Med + body. Flavor is woody, malty, floral and it comes across very oak astringent. Sets up a nice hop burn. Sort of a mellow malty decently hopped equivalent to an IPA. Nice drink indeed.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle-like can (I think?) @ weekly tasting shared with Joes. Clear amber color, full sized white head that lasts for a decent while and leaves fair to good lacing. Aroma is lightly malts, lightly hops, a hint of sweetness. Taste malts, lightly hops, again a little sweetish, there is a light touch of orangepeel-bitter, a hint of oak-wood-bitter towards the finish. Medium body and carbonation.

Sample from firkin at the 6th Annual Rogue Firkin Fest at Green Dragon. The beer is a slightly hazy amber color with a medium foamy white head that recedes steadily. Partial rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of ripe fruit and oak. Medium-bodied with flavors of floral hops, fruit and sherry. The finish is moderately bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Decent overall.
