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.

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.

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.

Draught in a flight at the brewpub. Pours a slightly hazy amber color. Nose has quite a bit of rye in there for me, along with the pepper that comes with it. Taste is slightly bitter and has a lot of the spicy elements in there. This was only OK for me.

Draft in Burien (month or so back): Hazy amber with a nice head. Crisp. Very fruity; has notes of apple, pear and grapefruit. Finish was toasted and a bit stark, bitterness-wise. Hop aromas lacked depth. Says 140 IBUs, which is unlikely, of course, but it seemed more like 70. Slightly hot from the alcohol. Not bad, but definitely not my favorite from this brewery.

Peachy amber color with a thin head. This definitely screams hops from the first whiff, a stiff one-dimensional, but lovely, floral, leafy dose of Chinook. The flavor remains consistent with a full-press bitter, leafy, Chinook body and dryish raw hop bitter finish.
