3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Crisp amber and copper coloured body with a bronze glow and a nice, three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of bright earthy and pale hops with a strong yeast and bread note, a good amount of caramel and toffee and a hint of fruits near the end. Medium to Full-bodied; Chewy piney and floral hop notes up front with a good earthy and toffee backbone of caramel malt and a structured, defined hop finish and a good sweetness tucked with some bitterness and a very syrupy finish. Aftertaste is quite complex with sugars, malt, alcohol and a lot of hoppiness around - very nice. Overall, a well structured and complex beer with a good body and some smooth bitter flavours throughout. I sampled this 50 cL bottle purchased from Made in Oregon in Portland (PDX Terminal D), Oregon on 08-December-2013 for US$8.99 sampled just seven days later on 15-December-2013 at home in Washington.

On tap @ Noble Fir. Pours dark orange amber with thin white head. Aroma is oaky malt and spicy hops. Taste is big oaky caramel malt with sharply bitter hops. Notes of earthy pine dominate the finish. Tasty, but without any real standout flavors.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at sb. Pours a crystal clear pale amber with a loose white head. Dry leafy nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Dry earthy fallen leaf toasty malt with herbal hop notes. Mildly tangy hop finish. About as dry as you can get for a hoppy asa of this abv. Will get lost drinking after a big sticky sweet beer.

Bottled. Pours dense dark orange-amber with a short-med head. Decent retention and lace. Big caramel and spicy, earthy, resinous hop aroma with a palate to match. Very nice. Medium-full body, good carbonation, oily texture, and a long, bitter finish.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Amber, clear, a bit fiery, large frothy off-white head, nice lacing.   Soft sweet candied citrus peel like nose, a bit of pith.   Seems a bit green as well.   Not as sweet and citrusy on the tongue, remains pithy, lightly sweetened.   Has a green hoppiness that isn’t bitter, but instead a little acrid.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Light sweet finish, pithy, soft hop, a touch chewy, but a little acrid.   Overall OK.

From a growler. Hazy orange, small head. Boozy citrus and some caramel on the nose. Some cardboard and... fruit punch? This one is underwhelming.
