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.

7.75% Cloudy amber - brown beer. Good pale cream coloured head. Palate is slightly soft and semi dry with fine carbonation. Soft caramel malt base. Big resinous hops. Bitterish pine and lesser skunk and grass. Mild hop sting. Balances well with the sweet malt. Semi dry finish. Pretty drinkable.

Oakes (12234) - 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.

Orange pour at GABF, white head. Aroma has some nice sticky malts and lotsof grassy and citrus hops. Flavor is sticky at times and hoppy at others. Pretty interesting brew. The hops peek in and out behind the malt bill.
