COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Made with classic Pacific Northwest Cascade, Centennial, Mt. Hood in the boil and dry hopped with more Cascade hops. Cascade aroma dominates the nose, so be sure to sniff it like a wine snob. Plenty of ultra premium Maris Otter malt and three specialty malts give the beer a nice smooth sailing biscuit like aroma and body, some sweetness, well balanced against 5.8% alcohol by volume.

(22oz bottle thanks to bu11zeye) clear medium gold, offwhite bubbles. Nose of sawdust, funky, white wine grapes. Taste of cracker, butter, old, bit aged, nothing impressive.

It was okay, it didnít compare to the look and smell. Left me feeling a little disappointed. It did have a very creamy and think head.

boFNjackson (4099) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Tap @ The Eastburn... Poured amber/golden-orange with a white head, mild lacing. Faint aroma with bread-like malt. Low bitterness, quite sessionable and quaffable. Hints of lemon peel, vanilla sweetness, creamy, bready, big malt flavors. Hops offered spice with hardly any bitterness.

Braudog (5574) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - APR 9, 2012
Bottle. Downright golden, with a white top. The aroma is floral, almost berry-laden, with a malty twist. This is interesting. At first blush this drinks like a lager, with a Bready, malty base. But it adds a sharp little hoppy finish at the end that caps it nicely. #4563, 4/9/2012)

Maltajo (329) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 7, 2012
Bomber Bottle from Total Wine Tucson. Nice cloudy pour with a thin head. Nutty yeasty with a hint of rasin and grapefruit. Nice balance of all.

daknole (8851) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 25, 2012
Medium amber pour, off white head. Some nice golden raisin, citrusy hops, resin and sugar cookie aroma. Flavor is a nice mix of resinous hops and toffe malt. I almost get a hint of fruitcake in this.

maley1 (726) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 25, 2012
Hazy golden yellow pour with large fluffy head. Aroma of pine and hops. Taste is earthy, corn and slight hops. Low carbonatioin and nothing at all appealing about this beer. Very dissapointing from this newer exciting brewery.

Onslow (1129) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - FEB 20, 2012
Pour from a 22 oz bottle. Amber brew with off white head. HOppy aroma - herbal, a little citrus, a little earth. THere is a little cheesy sour in the aroma that maybe suggests my sample has turned a bit. Taste is very hops forward - a little sweet malt at the very start of the swallow but quickly over shadowed by bitter hops. Herbal hops and earthiness, long dry bitter finish - definately as hopped up as many IPAís. But a bit coarse and unpleasant in the process.
