3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tapped at 2006 Fresh Hop Festival in Portland, OR--Word is, the impression of this freshly hopped brew varies from one pour to the next. The take here was a remarkably dissimilar taste with an astute and sophisticated Centennial hops texture.

On tap at Bridgeport, Portland. Hazy copper with thin off white head. Lovely hop aroma, some earthiness, good fruit. Not sure what the fruit is, almost tropical and then I guess cascade style earthy hop finish. Nice

A nice tasty fresh hopped beer with a nice head and a clear dark amber color. This was a very nice easy to drink fresh hopped brew.

Pours a nice bright amber color. Aromas of grapefruit/pine with some roasty scents. Flavor is citrus mixed well with the sweet malt, nice hoppy taste on this one.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Cleat medium amber with virtually no head. Ligth citrus, medium sweet, and straight-up bitterness. Starts astringently bitter, alcohol shows up, with a harsh sweetness, and a definite house yeast character. Light watery body. The best part is the very hoppy burps, otherwise a dissapointment.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Red-orange. Nose is typical hoppy and citric. Flavor is a bit sweet and a bit citric, but mostly it’s just bitter, no nice esters or fruity characterisitics, just astringent bitterness. Unpleasantly watery and uncarbonated, nasty mouthfeel. Not even vaguely good.

Seasonal: The name would suggest a hophead’s wonderland, but don’t get to excited. Poured muddy amber with an average sized head. Mild herbal hop aroma. Some toasted malts in the nose. Hint of Dawn dish soap suds in the taste. Citrus, biscut malts, and mushy hops for flavor. It seems to me they were going for a english style ale. Overall, just ok. Just don’t be fooled by the name.

From what the bar tender led on this beer should have grown little hop wings and flown to the outer reaches of the universe however it didn’t quite have the power i was expecting. Hops were clean and crisp but lacking a stinging punch, extra malts took away from the name this beer was given, a interesting wheaty finish.
