Tenth rate of this bitch what?!? Nose is toasty w biscuit light caramel moderate dank and citrus earthy wet hop nose. Amber pour nice head lace etc. Flavors of toast and biscuit a little dough fresh leafy bud citrus earthy bitterness. Chewy but not all that assertive. Good balance.

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - APR 17, 2009
On tap at brewpub. Pours out copper with a white head that sticks around. Aroma is citrus and earth, not very appetizing at all. Flavor is piney and earthy and all in all doesn’t work very well. It was only a sample though, perhaps with a larger amount it would taste better. Or maybe not.

Slipstream (2076) - USA - JAN 13, 2009
On tap at Rattle n Hum. Called a wet hop beer, which I have never tried before. My tastebuds think it is a pale ale, a light, dry, hoppy pale ale. It has a nice head and lace, and an interesting yeasty aroma. A little light, but good.

JoeMcPhee (8622) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2009
Tap at the Gate. Aroma is a little bit wet and dank. An earthy maltiness with a fairly bland hop aroma. Light orange and a bit of pine, but generally quite light. Flavour is kind of indistinct with a metallic, earthiness and a wet dankness. Fairly astringent through the middle. Not sure what went wrong here, but this certainly isn’t what these guys are capable of.

malrubius (1862) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - JAN 3, 2009
On tap @ Rattle n Hum. Clear copper with lasting head and lace. Fresh hop and mild fruit aroma. Mild honey biscuit with piney hop bitterness and dry finish. Medium-light, slightly watery palate. Sessionable, but not much else.

Bubblegum, citrus and pine nose. Very metallic and acidic palate with huge hop flavors. Sucking on a copper penny finish.

ChillCoat (1029) - Concord, California, USA - NOV 16, 2005
Draft @ EJ Phair Brewpub. Pale copper color with a white head. The aroma blew me away! Tons of citrus notes, mostly grapefruit and lemon along with pine. Somewhat respectable malt backbone but the hop flavor is overwelming and dominated by an overpowering metalic flavor. I’ve noticed this in many Harvest Ales this year. I don’t know if it’s me or this year’s hops but something seems a little off.

On draft, Bistro Hayward. The odor is hops, the aftertaste is hops, like chewing on a fresh hop bud. The color is amber, minute head in a pint. the malt shows in the initial sip, but the hops kill the malt flavor quickly,.

Draft. Orange-dark amber beer with a thin white head. Big hop aroma. Huge hop flavor and some caramel backing - grapefruit and just a little sweeter fruit (apricot?). Medium bodied. Just a little mustiness. Rich hop lingers with a little earthy grassiness. Nice.
