3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Pours to mostly clear copper-orange body with a medium tan head. The aroma is mild hops, citrus, and light lemon. Taste is mild lemon, bitter grass, floral hops - more west-coast hops style than I was expecting for an ESB (though I guess why not, right?).

Tried at a tasting at Bottleworks a while back. Good old ESB with a lot of caramel malts to back up the nicely done bitter finish. Nothing wild.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is very drinkable. Nicely balanced mixture of a rich caramel malt, while using a more traditional hop background for the style giving it a unique English presence on the palate. Very crisp and clean with a slighty bittersweet finish.

Bottle at Coumbia event. Pours a medium brown, very easy drinking, a little creamy, not too much malt, hops or anything, really, just a well-balanced beer. Well done.

A true pacific northwest beer, full of hops and intersting flavours. Hops balance malt and alcohol.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2006 22oz bomber: This was a surprise. I’ve never been a fan of their IPA, but this I like. Malty and sweet with that yummy American hop flavor.

Reddish brown with a lingering white head. Smells like carmel and like berries. Tastes spicy with pronounced vegetal hop flavor and full malty flavor. Light carb. Very good for a hop centric brew.
