3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Chuck’s Hop Shop, 85th st, Seattle
Cloudy amber color with creamy head. The aroma is a bit pungent and animal. The mouthfeel is rather dry, and lean, but the hop animal character is evident.
Maybe too aggressive.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pour is hazed dark golden amber with a tight white head. Nose has a lot of citrus, some sweet malt up front, oranges in back. Taste is very sweet and a bit boozy. Sweet malt backbone, citrus hops, a bit of vodka and messy grainy alcohol. Body is medium with an assertive carb and a bit of a grainy feel.

On tap at Fredfest 2014. Pours cloudy amber with a rich off-white head and a fruity aroma. There is a full-bodied caramel malt flavor with lots of toffee and a tasty bitter hop finish. Very dry.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from 16 Tons Taphouse, Eugene. Pours a very hazy golden amber, lots of off white head. Aroma yeast forward, with some estery notes and a crisp citrus character. Body fully and lively with a smooth finish, fruity with some vanilla notes lingering, citric bitterness. FG aren’t always my cup of tea, but this was pretty well done.

4.5 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is a perfectly brewed Belgian DIPA. Bourbon barrel aging melds an aromatic mixture of pungent aromas and bitter-sweet flavors. Full bodies and well carbonated, this beers has slight hints of gin and sour flavors in spurts, almost Brett flavored. Loved this!

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. Pours a cloudy golden color with bits of hop. The aroma is grassy, tropical fruits, woody/oaky, slight hint of caramel malts. The flavor is resinous, oaky, ripe fruits, slight heat from the alcohol. This is fairly complex and the bourbon barrel is restrained. Nice beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Think this was a Bailey’s water bottle filled by staff to go. Hazy pale orange with an off white film for head. Hoppy tropical fruit, dry, quite bitter, some vanilla and light oak but quite a lot of booze. Moderate carboation and full body, quite a lot of flavour and barrel chacteristics.
