3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled draught at Humperdinks, Dallas, Texas.
Reddish amber. Intensely hoppy nose with notes af aromatic oils, flower and citrus. Not much malt there to balance it, but considering the poor malt structure of the other beers at this brewery probably it's a good thing that the pleasant hop flavours just lingers on into a long bitter finish and bypasses the (lack of) body. I quite enjoyed this beer.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2012
2012-07-27, draught at Ram Restaurant and Brewery, Northgate, Seattle, 8-4-7-5-15=39
Cloudy amber color. Very nice aroma of fruity hops, oranges and other citrus fruits, a touch of tropical fruits. Good lean body, with a semi-dry mouthfeel, good malt and toffee flavor, and immediate hopping, more resiny than fruity, but still with a lemony edge; long final.
Fresh, hop forward and very pleasant.
2006-12-17, draught at Humperdink’s, Dallas, as Big Red IPA, 8-4-7-4-15=38
Light amber color; thin head, nice lace. Fruity hop aroma, resiny. Medium body structure, heavy hopping (with some resins, aggressive enough) but not enough malty. Good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Ram, Tacoma. It pours an unclear, dark orange body under some off-white to light beige head leaving curtains. Lots of pine cones in the aroma, not much maltyness kicking in. Fruityness and a touch of peaches too. Full body, pleasant carbonation. Quite dry, with a nice bitterness in the flavor, both initially and in the end. Some maltyness to back it up. Certainly a nice IPA, well worth a second and third glass. 130629

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Ram - Kent. Amber in color with some off-white foam. Probably their best beer, at least of the regular lineup. There’s a lot of pine and citrus rind character along with some bread and toast. Definitely more caramel than I’d like, though. Pretty floral and slightly grassy, too. Decent enough bitterness.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Big Horn U District, pours a cloudy dirty amber with a small white head. Nose brings out lots of dank resinous hops, some herbal hops, and bready caramel. Flavour is a bit disjointed, with stale bready caramel malt and resinous hops. The balance isn’t quite right, as there seem to be some strange flavours in here. Not a big fan, but it’s not a disaster.
