GABF 2006: Almost clear golden color with an off-white head. Piney and earthy hop foward aroma. Hop flavor that grows over the caramel malt. Moderately bitter finish. Not a bad beer.

Tap, Toronado. Pours an orange color with hints of redness. Very hoppy skunk bud aroma. Smooth mouthfeel. Bitter flavoring that seems to be lacking a little.

GABF 2006. The beer pours to a golden body with a white head. The aroma is bitter leafy hops. The flavor is bitter hop oil, caramel malt, leafy hops. Overly raw bitter oiliness everywhere!

Oakes (12789) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 25, 2006
Slightly hazy dark amber. Massive citric, piney aroma with crystal malt underpinning. Rich and chewy, with a piney, woody bitterness. Only a kiss of sweetness for balance. Has a unique toasty quality. Drinkable for the style.

UPDATED: FEB 27, 2006 Draught at Toronado, San Francisco. Clear dark amber, small head. Strong citric hop aroma. Sweet with clean crystal malt profile, but this beer is dominated by massive hops that hides some sticky sweetness well. Really hoppy and megabitter. The hops makes me forget about it’s drawbacks and I find myself enjoying this beer tremendously.

Bottle poured a golden orange with an off white head. Aromas of pine and citrus. Palate is smooth but resiny. Flavor has a sweet malt backbone with flavors of grapefruit and a hint of oranges and pine. This beer has a nice long lasting bitter aftertaste.
