Bottle pour. Copper red color with a nice piney, hoppy aroma. Overall, I am very impressed with this. Very smooth, while full of flavor. Slight bitter finish. Tasty.

Pours clear reddish copper with an off white head. The aroma has piny, fruity and citrusy hoppiness, toffee/caramel malt, richness, light vanilla and some toast. It has a medium body with a good amount of fairly soft carbonation. The flavor starts off pretty malty with a rye bread, roastiness, english earthiness, dry caramel and some spicy / earthy hops. The finish has lingering caramel and spice. Pretty good.

Draft sample. Hazy pale amber in colour, with somewhat lower carbonation than expected. Aromas are of orchard fruit, caramel malts, and a nice citrusy-earthy hop blend. Flavors are of spicy pear, decidedly herbal hops, and bready malts. A style I generally shy away from (there is no shortage of dull amber ales), but I like the complexity and balance of this one.

22 oz. Bottle. Very nice color, moderate head retention. Citrus aromas mainly, some caramel. Initially very citrusy, caramel mid-palate, and unfortunately fairly astringent in the finish. Roastyness and hops clash at the end and donít find a good balance for my tastes.

hopwine (244) - Bend, Oregon, USA - MAR 7, 2014
On tap at bend pub. Red-amber, off-white head. Amarillo peachyness and caramelly sweet malt on the nose. Flavor is the same plus burnt sugar, toffee, light breadiness, strong English ale yeast fruitiness, with moderate levels of bitterness cutting through. Very good, though it is a touch too sweet.

Scored this brew in Riverton, Wyoming. Itís got lots of hoppy spiciness going on, itís like you took a big chunk of spicy moss out of the ground and shoved it into your gaping mouth with a long pine cone, and then chewed the pine bark and a cinnamon stick with some fizzy biting zazz. You are walking through the great vast forest of eternal sorrow, when a shadowy figure emerges from the thicket and as you are paralyzed with fear, it draws near and shoves pine cones into your gaping eyesockets with reckless abandon... It is the great dark spirit of the mystic forest, and only now in this late hour do you realize the folly of your ways... You should have taken a different path.

Part of the 9hr epic solo drunkfest in Portland in Nov, 2010. Pint. Mmmmm stellar taste! Reddish amber with an off white cap and small spots. Soooooooooooooooo bloated... not sure what pint Iím on.. the pizza didnít help. Large smell. Dark caramel or toffee, leaves? Support of fruit (?? these notes rule) sweet tangerine, apple and very malty. Big malty taste, medium roast, toffee... barely legible note at the bottom of the page says íran out of beerí.
