2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Triple hopped! Dark orange and amber, small thin white head. Some concord grape and lime, dark toasted hay, little doughy and sour when agitated in the glass. Somewhat metallic up front, dry and crunchy middle, finishes with a twang of metal and toasted sugar. Disappointing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nose has notes of caramel and a good dose of iced tea. Some rye pokes through as does some spicy hop notes. Light fruity notes also. Pours amber, well filtered, a bit of head for a little while. The flavor has notes of iced tea throughout, light caramel, some spicy hops, a little earthy, bitterness level is light to medium. A touch herbal. Not my favorite.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
6 pack bought from Haggens store in Tualatin. $6.79
Kinda like the straight good looks of the beer., dark clear copper tones with a big thick creme coloured head.
Aroma again very simplistic, earthy hop,nutty ,toasty malts
Again a simple plain slightly resinous hop and a nice nutty maltiness, struggling to find any rye though that may be at the very end and lends a rather spicy finish.
Ok on my palate, smooth long ending peppery spice.
Overall a rather simple beer..far more simple than the dessription led me to believe.
Slightly let down but it really is not a bad beer.

bottle. clear amber under a med, creamy white head. fruity, estery aroma with toasty malt and some notes of black tea. toasty, nutty malt flavors balanced with a fruity hop that is kind of pear-like. notes of tea again and spicy rye. medium body and a little syrupy. warm but not boozy.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber body. well carbonated with a 1/3 inch thick tanned head. Bitter fruit hop nose. Grassy. Body is also grassy bitterness. A bitter ESB, with a touch of metallic bitterness. A rather monotone bitterness without much flavor complexity.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Poured red with thick off white head, much lacing. Herbal aroma with a little butter and a little citrus. Flavour not the hop bomb it seems to imply it is. A solid malt backbone in all the hoppiness. Back of the tongue finish.

Bottle... Poured amber/red with a beige head. Aroma had some buttery tones, malt sweetness and mild hop flavors. Very worty, with some diacetyl notes. Hops were sticky, spicy, herbal. Foamy, dry palate, medium mouthfeel. Citrus fruitiness, and some yeast flavors.

Bottle served in a pint glass. Pours clear red-orange with a light orange head. Good retention and lacing. Nose is floral, grassy hops, and pale candy malt. Medium sweet flavor. Medium body, cricky texture, average carbonation. Easy drinker that smooths to a dry, bitter-sweet finish.
