3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle:   Darker dull amber, thick and hazy, HUGE fluffy sandy head, nice lacing.   Like the stout I had the other day, put a few months on these bottles and they foam over.   While not tasting overly infected, it
seems like its on its way.   Sweet candyish/powdery sugar aroma, candied citrus peel, could be busted.   Has that Danish IPA/IIPA flavor profile, soft pithy hops, but major pixie stix/powdered sugar sweetness.   Very air on
the tongue.   Seems that sitting on this for too long resulted not in it getting aged/flat, but instead perhaps infected.   All I can say is drink your Calapooia soon, as it won’t die a slow death, instead it will turn into a

22oz bottle from"LifeSouce" in Salem.
Clear Lyle Syrup golden coloured ale with a large,thick ,rocky white head.
Pretty reasonable nose on this a lot of rich caramel type malts and good semi-resiny hop.
Nicely balanced taste..mainlly caramel malts then followed up by resin/citric hops in the end. Pleasant enough.
Well carbonated and good palate.
A nice enough pale more towards the balanced side.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at the brewery. Pours golden yellow with a soft white head. I think this has chinook hops in it also cause it had a bit of the aroma that I don’t care for so much. Hops went from citrus to a light herbal hop quality. Body was lighter on the palate, just a small touch of malts for the big NW pale hop additions.
