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.

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.

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.

BrewDad (4632) - Olympia, USA - OCT 30, 2007
Draft - Brewery - Burien, WA
Aroma – Deep rich malts and a good use of hops
Appearance – Deep copper color, clear and a light head
Flavor – The richness and the deep alcohol was found and the hops brought out some great flavors. This was a great beer.
Palate – The mouth liked this beer also. A great richness, sweet and a slight spicyness to the whole beer. Great stuff.
Overall –I liked this beer it will age well. Need to be sure to let this one age and warm up before drinking.

Tap at Brouwers Hopfest ’07.

My kinda IPA. Pours a cloudy light brown. Dry flavor, lovely hop aromas, nothing sweet here, but chewy enough malts to be more than just hop juice. Intensely drinkable but never overpowering. Bravo!

Another enjoyable offering from EBB. Light clear amber. Faint hop aroma. The hops are solid but not overwhelming in the taste. Very sweet malt finish. Tasty and interesting. Worth trying for sure.

UPDATED: MAR 26, 2009 On tap at the brewery. Nitro cask conditioned. A shade browner than copper. Effervescent is one way to describe it. Mouthfeel is interesting; light on the tongue/mouth and solid going down. Hops. Bitter on the finish and higher alcohol very detectable. It was different.
