(Bottle 65 cl) This pours a pretty, warm, hazy amber colour with a dense and delicious, creamy, off-white head. Fresk, slightly perfumy hop aroma. Medium-bodied with sweet caramel malt and then very fresh and delicate - although quite soapy - hop notes. Yum. Courtesy of Degarth. 170207

UPDATED: MAR 4, 2006 New rating: Dull dark colour with haze. The aroma shows grapefruit, wood. Chewy character with toffee and resiny hops. Fat bitterness.
Dark, hazy, amber-brown colour. Earthy aroma with a hint of citrus and malt. Thick, clean, crystalmalty body balanced with lots of bitterness but surprisingly understated aromatics for a PNW IPA. Ar 6 Ap 3 Fl 7 P 3 Ov 12 = 3.1

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Aromas of caramel malt and citrusy hop. Dark, red tinged, amber color with an off-white head that rapidly diminished. Medium bodied. Moderate carbonation with no bite. Toasty malt sweetness. Good balancing hop, which I still think is citrus, but could be floral. The finish is almost dry, and the bitter is wonderful. Warming alcohol arises. What a great ale.
