3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Jester King Zwanze Day. Orange pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor are classic West Coast hops. I get some big orange and grapefruit notes. The flavor also has a bit of biscuit malt to keep the bitterness in check. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Nice beer.

650 ml. bottle sampled @ Firestone Walker Tasting. Thank you! Hazy orange, creamy white. Nose is substantial yeast presence, thick, citrus, honey. Taste is honey, medicinal hop, muted dough, citrus peel, med. bitter. Tad yeasty body. Could have used more outspoken hop-character here & less yeast, cleaner, decent.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Golden amber with a big foamy head. The aroma is full of a big hoppy northwest pine edge. This drinks with a grapefruit edge, and is a little sticky on the palate, almost gluey. Really enjoyed it. (#5800, 10/8/2014)

3.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Pours a golden hazy with lacing white head. Aroma is somewhat subdued with hints of citrus and pine coming through. Big and bold in flavor with the pine and resinous hops coming through with the sweetness of the alcohol also present. Pleasantly balanced for this big of a beer.
