IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - DEC 14, 2004
A slightly hazy medium dark Brown. Small beige head. Think "Bigfoot" at a low volume for the aroma, rich complex malts with just the right balance of the Cascade hop pine/citrus scent. Aggressive hops up front that like microscopic pit bulls, latch on to your taste buds and never let go. The malt flavors manage to sneak in the few scant openings between the hops teeth but make no mistake about it, this is a tribute in liquid to the love of Cascade hops!

flying_pig (931) - SCOTLAND - MAR 21, 2012
1/2 Pint on tap at Brewdog Glasgow (£2.95):
Pine, roasted malts smell that is blended with a good caramel arona. Very sweet with a bit of brown sugar as well. The end is more pine and hops with some bitterness.
Dark amber colour, thin and bubbly white/brown head and slightly cloudy.
Caramel and roasted malts to start things off with, followed quickly by some piney hops and bitterness and a lot of sugary sweetness. The taste is rounded off by yet more malts.
Light and smooth with a good bitter hop feel to the drink and a nice, sweet finish and a touch of dryness right at the end.

Quite a nice, light and refreshing beer that was gone almost as quickly as I ordered it. The roasted malts and sweetness worked well and this one was a pleasure to drink.

smoosh (536) - New Albany, Indiana, USA - FEB 12, 2005
Draft - I’m hoping that this keg just didn’t travel well. It was not pretty. The aroma was that of vinegar. A beige head of medium-sized bubbles atop a deep amber body. There was more vinegar in the flavor, but some malt. There was a reason that this was marked down to $1.25 for a half pint and $2 for a full pint. I knew there was, but tried it anyway.
