3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Keg at the brewpub, PDX, 09/11/14.
Clear rich amber with a moderate off white covering that soon dissipates to a swirl.
Nose is toffee, dark malts, sugars, spice, caramel.
Taste comprises much the same, pretty one trick pony.
Medium body, fine carbonation, semi drying close with lghtly warming alcohol.
Ok, but for style and ABV not a lot doing, lacks depth and complexity.

3.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap poured a cloudy orange-brown hue with large frothy beige head. Moderate sweet malty rye aroma. Initial flavor is moderate sweet w/ a bold bitter finish of ling duration. Tastes are rye, caramel, brown sugar, hay, and pine. Full bodied. It may be one of the longest lasting finishes of any beer I've had.

Great hoppy aroma, nice bitter finish and a little spice on both the nose and the palate. Gets better as it warms

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
I don’t normally go for North American brews - I find most of the quality ones are simply a scrap over who can stuff the most hops into a single bottle, often at the expense of any real balance. There are some craft brews that play to the hop crowd, but don’t neglect balance - this is one of them. The aroma is like that of a fresh floral garden, backed by a citrusy zest. The beer pours a deep amber-red colour, and presents quality lacing that persists throughout the pour. The flavour and palate are, as to be expected, hop-dominant, but not to the exclusion of a solid malt palette in the background. I cannot honestly say that I can distinguish that this brew was hopped three separate times, but the rich citrus and floral notes from the nosing certainly carry through in the glass. A very strong beer, best enjoyed as an accompaniment to a heavy meal.

"looking at the other reviews, sounds like this one might not be old like i thought, just a little on the bland side for a "triple hopped double red ale". a little orange-ish citrus and caramel malt. a little thin for the abv. not bad, but a little dsiappointing after the build-up. About average for a red."

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from bottle to glass. Copper hue with creamy off white head thT dissipated to a ring. Aroma is malt, peppercorn, rye, caramel, grass. Mouthfeel is refreshing with a medium body and crisp carbonation. Taste is dry sweetness followed by a spicy hop bitterness that extends through the finish. Overall this is a nice brew.

I enjoy strong beers, but for this one, the strong alcohol flavor dominates the other flavors.
