Clear deep honeyish-golden-amber color, steady creamy off-white head. Lemony nose with hints of barnyard(!). Light bodied. Fresh grassy hops, pale malty. Dry hopped? Interesting fresh sample.

Draft at the source. Pale golden color. Aroma of fruit and light pine. Taste is resin and bitter fruit.

Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours clear coppery amber with a slight off-white head. Aroma is floral and citric. Med + body. Flavor is very hoppy - perfumey/floral and citrus over mildly roasted malt. NW twist indeed. On the right coast they’d surely swear it was an IPA.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at Fremont. Pours a clear, bright golden with webby lacing. Nose has the brewery’s characteristic weedy skunk note universal in their hoppy stuff along with some raw brewhouse/sweet wort boil. It doesn’t bother me- makes it feel rustic. But for others this may be seen as flawed. Taste is full biscuit balance, beautiful malt showcase as always with this brewer. Thick mango, marmalade, grilled papaya, huge sourdough biscuit. Balancing, beautiful. Shows a lot of brewer aptitude.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This brew pours a mostly clear dark orange color with a medium bone white head that recedes quickly to an outer ring. Partial rings of lace on the glass. The aroma is hoppy with some pale malt behind it. Light body with flavors of biscuit malt, citrus and mildly bitter hops. The finish is fruity with a short hops aftertaste. Slightly above average overall.

Bottle, shared with Parksy and Grippitis. Medium clear golden, white head that leaves delicate lace. Aroma is light citrus and biscuity malt. Sessionable palate of slightly sweet biscuity malts and perfumey citrus hops, in nice balance. Just a nice sit-&-chill beer.

22. Pours a clear medium amber with golden brown highlights. Loose filmy tannish head knocking around, leaving bits of patchy lace. Nice fruity nose, caramel showing through oranges and pineapples. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toast, caramel, oranges, and pineapple on the mid-palate. Pleasant. Tangy pineapple finish. Nice fresh citric fruity APA. Good stuff.

3/28/13. Sampled during CBC 2013. Orange pour with a small khaki head. Nice aroma on this for just a pale ale. Floral, piney, and plenty of citrus on top of a solid malt balance. Slightly more lackluster flavor, less hop presence, more malts coming through. Tasty.
