3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Lightly doughy malt, hints of floral hops. Light on the nose, not much going on really. Hazy golden pour, not much head. The flavor is also doughy, lightly sweet with a floral/peppery hop profile that is not too bitter but makes a little presence felt. Easy to drink, well made, but super unspectacular.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Tap at the brewpub. Pours a light golden with a small, tight head and minimal lacing. Aroma is bread, floral and light lemon citrus hops. Flavor is lemon, honey, bread and a strange sour note. I think this is the only beer I’ve had from Double Mountain that I really didn’t enjoy at all.

Tap at the Lucky Lab Beer Hall. Pours medium amber with an off-white head. Sweet pale fruit aroma. Medium body. Mild carbonation. Flavor is lightly cooked dark fruit. Quite delicious. Sweet/bitter/fruity finish. Kind of fun.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Double Mountain Hood River. Pours out a hazy apple juice topped with a white head. Aroma was of malts and a dirty sock odder. I don’t think that is suck a good smell. Taste was OK though. A good rich bread malt along with some sweetness and as always for me I seem to pick up a little wood on the ESB’s for some odd reason.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours gold with a compact white head. Few lacings. Aroma is bready with some floral hops. Taste is bread, yeast, lemon, and bitter earthy hops. The overall effect was a sour lemon hoppy beer. Not much like any ESB I’ve had before. I did finish the glass but was tempted to have and IRA or Hop Lava about half way through. Maybe this was an old batch or I was served the wrong beer.

On tap at Double Mountain in Hood River. Color was a murky, dark gold color. Aroma was light with bread, earth and apples. Flavor was of bread, fruit and spice. A bit dry and earthy in the finish. Drinkable beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap @ Apizza Scholls, while awaiting my bacon pizza. Hazy orange-brown color, thick pillow of stark white head. Mild grassy hop character, light biscuity malt notes. Mild overall, but serves its purpose.
