fiulijn (18423) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 30, 2015
Bottle from Brewery Creek, Vancouver
Dark brown color with generous compact head. Too similar to a Black IPA not to be mentioned; good resiny hops blend with good malt, and moderate roasty character; full bodied, fruity, fresh.
Very good beer.

mcberko (13000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 13, 2013
22 oz. bottle, pours a deep dark amber with a medium off-white head. Aroma of citrusy hops, light roasted malt and some feint tropical fruits. Flavour is rich, with fruity, citrusy hops, moderate roasted malt character, and a bit of caramel malt. Great balance between the hops and malt, with a moderate sweetness. Great one here.

Amped up red/pale ale...juicier hops and more earthy/spicy/woodsy notes as well. Pretty nice brew. Not sure if they bottle this...

22. Pours nearly opaque black with a creamy tan head that settles and then sticks around. Fresh piney nose with mild roasty black ipa undertones. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Roasty mid palate with caramel and pine notes and a long clean piney finish. Nice strong red.

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Super deep ruby, large pillowy sandy head, nice lacing.   Pith and pine on the nose.   Soft sweetness, a little citrus peel.   On the tongue its the same, pine, astringent pith, citrus peel, hoppy.   Wished it were a bit sweeter.   Has a moderate amount of sweetness, but could use a touch more to balance the astringent pith and citrus peel.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Feels a bit chewy, but quickly fades.   Lingering pith and citrus peel.   Pretty good, a bit above average.
