NICU (12) - Oregon, USA - MAR 27, 2007
Bottle purchased at By the Bottle in Vancouver, WA. Pretty tasty stuff, but the slight diacetyl (sp?) tinge kept growing as the beer warmed and left me with a slippery feeling in my mouth that I don’t enjoy. The aroma was great and the appearance was clean, bright, and golden, but I had to ding it on the flavor and palate because of the diacetyl. Next time I’m in Bellingham I’ll certainly try it on tap, but I’ll be hesitant to buy bottles again unless I know they’re fresh.

Rating #1982 2015.09.26 #CraftTakesSeattle Day 3, Beer 83. Draught at TapHouse Grill. Lots of sprucey, piney, herbal notes rupting from this foaming amber pour. earthy, toasty biscuit malt with floral, zesty, herbal hop bitterness.

PorterPounder (7223) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 16, 2016
Bellingham, Wa - on tap at Boundary Bay. Medium copper pour with a slight haze, frothy off white head. Aroma has some hints of light spruce with a touch of Juicy Fruit gum. Flavor has a solid citrus backbone, some light pineapple notes, some caramel sweetness in the finish. Very similar to the Cedar Dust with a bit more bitterness. Rating #43 of my 2016 vacation.

teamsale (154) - Washington, USA - MAY 29, 2016
Pours a clear copper with a nice thick white head. Smells of tomato soup, berries, and rust. Tastes really well balanced, excellent malt flavor with an ideal hop balance. There isn’t really anything that stands out about the flavor which is what makes this taste so amazing; it tastes awesome! Mild bitterness complements the finish perfectly. Great aftertaste. Impressive where it counts the most.

Capa (2618) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - DEC 3, 2015
Medium orange with a white head. Citrus and malt are the only real thing going on here. On the sweeter, fuller IPA side of the scale. Round, medium thick body. Good.

Tap @ Virginia Inn Tavern: Gold color with white head. Musty wet hop aroma with a musty, solid hoppy flavor. Not bad.

22 oz bottle. Honey brown with bone foam. Nose is orange, pineapple, light musk and toffee. Medium body with a buzz finishing resiny. Taste is orange banana, pine and grapefruit peel. Solid for the style. The sweet banana notes draw me in for another sip. I’d love to try the imperial version.

Bottle shared by bhensonb. Pours orange copper with a modest off-white head and a citrus aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor with lots of grapefruit-like hop bitterness. Very thick flavor.
