The brewery is one of the coolest we have ever been to. The tap is covered in ice and the beer that comes out of it is REALLY good! Drink it cold and enjoy

4.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
UPDATED: FEB 1, 2008 Pours the color of honey w/ a full, creamy froth. Head retention is superb receding to a
full silky canopy w/ some spattered islands and a complete creamy ring of lace.
Aromas of fresh malted herbs and aged citrus rind. Full nectar w/ ample, creamy residual effers. Nice!
A big malty backbone supports a bright hop component. Flavors come alive w/ a brisk force
and splatter layers of aged malts on top of refreshingly snappy hops. Mildly sweet w/ rustic nuances
of citrus rind and mild caramel. The finish is bittered perfectly and dry leaving a nice hop burn
to linger. I want more! Very well balanced. I can taste the English influence.

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2010 Dont know why its rating isn’t in the 4’s or higher I’m mainly a malt profile drinker with occasional hop tendencies but this has to be my favorite hoppy beer. Great bitterness with just the right amount of sweetness to clean you palette quick enough leaving you aching for another drink, but as said before take heed of the ABv because in taste you’d have no idea it was as high as it is. A good session beer......Beginning of re-rate. Not really re-rate but just wanted to comment that the abv was lowerd from 8 to 6.5%.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: JUL 16, 2008 Very fragrant, reminiscent of the aroma of a Double IPA or a fresh-hop harvest ale. Flavor has sweetness and body is much like a sticky resinous hop-bombing IxPA. The hop character is very played up in pretty much every aspect except for flavor, which is medium-strong-hoppy by mainstream standards. Definitely worth coming back to, especially at the modest price. I recommend this, and the RB average has dropped the ball on this somewhat. Something of this quality would get around a 3.7 RB average in a true, fair blind tasting.

12 oz. bottle pour. Wonderful hoppy aroma, nice off-white head. Nice hoppy bitterness, with a touch of malt. Perhaps a bit over-hopped, but I like it.

Draft. This was a delicious beer with a wonderful hoppy taste to it. This here is a must try. One of my favorites.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz. Cloudy, burnt orange with a creamy one-finger head that endures. Earthy tea leaf, woody hop, toasted bread and caramel aromas. Flavor is a very nice blend of the same with a citrus, resin, and mildly peppery wood finish. Toasted nut and cocoa flavors begin to develop after a few tastes. Medium body is smoothly carbonated, lightly hop-tingly, and has a crisp dry finish.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
12 oz bottle. I’m normally a roasted malt maniac but this beer was ridonckulous. Pours a beautiful hazy gold with a thick frothy white head. Aroma is a beautiful floral hop, galangal, pine and resin medley. Flavor reminds me of whole grain toast with fresh raw honey. Beautifully rounded out with the perfect balance of hops. The balance from the front of the palate to the finish is perfect. I couldn’t imagine a better session beer. Too bad ABV isn’t lower.

Golden in color with white head. Leaves little silking down glass. Great smell and taste of hops. Wonderful overall brew.

grapefruity and pine apply aroma with sweet malts in the background quite nice..high marks for appearance as well..cloudy amber deep orange color pure white foamy head plenty of lacing..tastes of citrus pine and perhaps floral hoppiness and a fruity maltiness which is unusual in a nice way..easy to drink,medium bodied with a sweet aftertaste bitter on the tongue..overall cant find a whole lot to complain about very pleasantly surprised and inexpensive too
