NOt bad, but not very impressive for a brewery who has proven they can make exciting beers. Aroma is mostly malt, and sweet rather than a roasted character. Some hops in the flavor, as well as medium sweet malt. Thicker than a standard amber, but not so interesting.

[Bottle, thanks Skyview] Poured red with a medium light tan head. Spicy aroma. Hoppy, fruity taste with low bitterness. Pretty good.

Picked up a 22-oz bottle via trade with chriso420 at the Belmont Station in Portland, Oregon. Pours a clear dark golden amber brew with an average off-white head that slowly dissolves to a fine film. Nice lacing. Aroma of roasted caramel malt, toasted oatmeal cookies, with a touch of earthy flower hops. Taste is medium bodied, lightly carbonated with flavors of sweet caramel malt, citrus zest and an earthy hop bitterness. Finish is dry with a green vegetable aftertaste.

Muchas gracias Skyview. Copper color with a medium head. Big hop aroma with spices (cinnamon?). Very vegetal taste. Possibly fresh hop. Spicy malt.

Thanks to skyview. Pours a very burnt amber red. Very sweet malt on the nose with hints of floral aromatics. Nice toffee like sweetness on the front palate proceeded by a bitter floral finish.

22 oz. bottle in San Francisco. Light brown, orange color with a light beige head. Aroma was of light malt but mostly of light to medium hoppiness. Malty smell kicked in a bit more as it warmed. Taste is smooth, and mostly quite hoppy but not excessive. A touch of malt flavor but not much. Kind of like a weak IPA, but more drinkable if you can’t handle the high bitter levels. Decent, but I wouldn’t feel like I was missing out if I didn’t come across this beer again.

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2009 From a 22 oz bottle this poured a copper to red with nice fat off-white head and moderate lacing. Nose was caramel malts with some light grassy hops. Mouthfeel light and a bit thin. Flavor was malts and hops, with a little fruit. Not much finish. A drinkable but undistinguished amber;

22 oz Bottle: Pours coppery red with almost two fingers of head. Although the head disappeared i had some lacing during my first few sips. The aroma is driven by caramel/toffee. The flavor is slightly hoppy with a clear malt character. The palate was thin to medium for a beer like this. An okay beer but I expected something different.
