COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The rainbow bridge made from fire, air and water, used by the gods to travel from the world tree, Yggdrasil, to the heavens. Asgard. Brewed with Pale malt and small amounts of Munich and Crystal malts. Bittered with Centennial, finished with Amarillo and Styrian Goldings hops. Strong, hoppy, and smööth

Relatively pale to medium amber brew with some foam and lace, nice piney aroma with that great bittersweet balance that Centennial hops provide. Clean pretty much, but obfuscated in the middle somewhere is a touch of "rancio", like someone thru a balled up hunk of sourdough and/or a big ol’ porcini mushroom in the fermenter or somethin’... some sort of English yeast I’m guessing. I like it, it’s got character.

22 oz. bomber. Pours a clear brilliant amber with a dense, lasting head. Lemon/hop nose is fairly strong. First taste packs a hop bite with a sweetish piney character. Finish trails off into slow, sweet, warming glow with just a tang of hops left behind. I liked this year’s batch over the last couple.

On tap a the Dog and Pony in Renton. This is not your standard winter warmer that is largely defined by the malt. The alcohol level is up in the right range but the hops are saying this beer has wandered into IPA territory. All in all, a surprising but very good beer.

Draft at the Dog and Pony. Wow, this is amazing stuff. Not really an American Strone, more of an IIPA in malty clothing. Pours a clear, golden brown with a thin white head. Plenty of crisp herbal & noble hops on the nose. Fairly thick and chewable body but nothing exceptional for a winter beer. Big hoppy flavors predominate in the palate and especially in the finish. This is another great effort from Elysian, if slightly mislabelled. Sometimes, though, it’s nice to be a little surprised.

BuckeyeBoy (3543) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 6, 2006
22oz Bottle Pours out a gold topped with a very nice off white head. Aroma is nothing great, but the tast is very good. Thanks Indiana_Red for this.

Bottle pours a clear medium amber with a full, creamy, lasting off white head. Heavy thick lacing. Not much in the way of aroma, light grain, some sweetness, like a wet grocery bag, almost pilsnerish. Flavor is pretty bitter but sweet light malts as well. Not so much hopps aroma/flavor but plenty of IBUs. Nice smooth soft palate. Easyon the carbonation, surprising for the nice head on it.

pinkzambia (1653) - Boise, Idaho, USA - NOV 6, 2006
22 oz. Bottle:Clear copper color with a full off-white head. Mild spicy aroma with a strong that packs way more flavor than the aroma leads you to believe. Flavors of alcohol, anise, caramel, and sweet hairspray. The finish is pretty strong and bitter but is followed by a prolonged sweetness. Powerful. Thanks Indiana_Red!

First beer I tried at the 2006 OBF. I don’t know what I got into. I love this brewery. I just wanted to see what they had to offer. Dark Orange in color, white head. mightily hopped. very similar bittterness to many ROGUEs I’ve had. Malt bitterness aroma. Very nice suprise!

[2006 - Oregon Brewers Festival] Dark Amber colored brew with a good thick head this was a nice strong winter type beer. What where they thinking send a beer like this to the wrong time of a festival this was not winter time. A good beer a nice sipping around the fire beer not out in a hot tent brew.

thedm (5085) - Fort Wayne, USA - MAY 24, 2006
This bottled brew poured a small sized head of foamy off-white colored yellow inged fine to medium sized bubbles that left behind a transparent orange colored carbonated body and a good lacing. The aroma was musty hoppy and malty. The mouth feel was tingly from the start and mellowed in its finish. The flavor was strongly vinous with a malt bite piney hops and loaded with yummy caramel malts.
