COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This recipe scored a bronze medal at the 2003 GABF in the American Strong Pale Ale category. It screams out "HOPS" from the first whiff to the last lingering drop. Pair that with 7.5% alc./weight and you'll be sure to understand just what the judges saw in this beer.

Nena (963) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 10, 2010
Tap at the pub. Poured a dark, orange amber with a lovely off-white head. Left lacing as I drank. Aroma is hoppy with notes of grapefruit. Flavor is a little toasty and malty, but is all about the resinous, grapefruit hops. Very hoppy, but drinkable, with a pleasantly bitter dry finish.

draft at collins. pours a fairly cloudy darkish amber. decent gray creamy head. nice resiny nose, some toasty malt, and, alas, butter. creamy medium body. nice roasty toasty resiny mid palate, too bad the butter shows up again. longish resiny finish. cut the diacetyl and this probably gains .6 or more. bummer.

This immediately followed the Pro-Am IPA at 70+ IBUs so my palate may have been a bit tired. Certainly bitter... This is hops all the way, but I’m surprised it’s rated at 140 IBU. That just sounds unpalatable. Pours a very dark brown. Tried to get a growler, but they were out. Probably for the best as this is best sipped in 10 oz. schooners.

Amber colored beer, thin head.. Malty aroma of bread perhaps with a ton of hops, pine and citrus mostly. Super hoppy flavors of grapefruit and pine with a touch of caramel maybe. Nice and hoppy. Lingering finish.

Cask @ WABF 2008. Pours a clear amber color with a small off-white head. Has a malty earthy hoppy aroma with some piney hints. Malty hoppy flavor with hints of caramel and hints of citrus and pine. Has a malty hoppy piney finish with a nice bitter aftertaste.

BuckeyeBoy (2628) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 9, 2008
On tap at West Seattle brewpub. Pours out a copper topped with a white head. Aroma of fresh citrus. Tast of a nice citrus hop. A littel malt and a very nice bitter end. #1100 for me.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 10, 2007
Dark copper and pellucid. White, frothy head that is almost creamy. Nose of citrus and pine. There’s almost a hint of cedar there. I have no idea why. Fruity with notes of oranges and a little of the pine comes through with the flavor. Sweet caramel malts and a touch of toasted malts. Finshes smooth and easy. I could drink this a lot.
