UPDATED: JAN 15, 2010 on draft. amber beer that glows with orange when you hold it to the light. A very drinkable beer with consistent hop presence throughout and good malt balance. hopping is noteworthy for balance between boiling and finishing. Update 2/2009: on tap at Downriggers restaurant in Port Angeles. Pours a light amber to dark gold with a thick white head. I detect an odd garlic aroma. The flavor and body are really light. There does not seem to be very much hops at all in this beer. Seems quite boring. Iím re-rating this down from 3.4.

Draft at Desert Fire in Redmond. Pours a medium amber with coppery overtones, decent sudsy white head that falls away. Mild, almost neutral nose. Medium body, light carb. Not a lot going on here until it warms up a little (curse Desert Fire and their frosted glasses). Then thereís some woodiness to the hop that has some appeal, lets you know itís there. This is a perfectly well made beer, but the recipe just does not want to stand up and asset itself at all. A nice flagship for people new to real beer, and totally sessionable on those days when youíre not feeling picky.

Rich hazy orange draft with a good head. Hoppy nose. Taste of sweet malts, lightly hopped. After 3 days in Seattle I now expect to find Cascade hops in my eggs and in my coffee. This was not bad, but not extraordinary, and, yeah, it was lightly hopped with pine and citrus and a bitter finish.

On tap at Ivarís, Pier 54, Seattle

Had first day in Seattle with my girlfriend, her father, and her sister while waiting for the Bainbridge Island ferry. Pours lush amber with a nice head. Aroma is very hoppy for an APA, with nice streams of flora and grapfruit. Very close to an IPA, with a definite grapefruit presence accentuated by the hops but nicely rounded out by a malty sweetness. Velvety palate. Great beer; beautiful view from my seat.

bb (6858) - Alamo, California, USA - SEP 22, 2005
Draft. Amber beer with a nice off-white head. Slight citrus aroma. Citrus (orange)/flowery flavor over some malt backing. Medium bodied and easy to drink.

DarkElf (3035) - La Jolla, California, USA - SEP 1, 2005
(Draft: Celtic Bayou in Redmond, WA) Very mild mannered aromas of light, citrusy hops and an even lighter pale malt scent. No surprises from the flavor either, as the light malt body allows the mildly bitter and citrusy hops to stand out a bit. Thereís a modest sourness in the flavor to help break up the sweetness of the malts. Golden colored, slightly hazy, with a small, off-white head that leaves some patchy lacing as it subsides to a ring. Meh, pretty average.

Yeah, not bad. Apply taste, light and decent. Very light for the style but articulately hopped. Good show. Virginia Inn, Seattle.
