Part of a flight at the brewery with Dadbra. Sorry to compare to NB, but this is like a hoppy Fat Tire. Nice grapefruit tendencies, with a funny kinda phenolic clove dimension that came out of nowhere. Interesting.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Floral aroma, light copper color with medium body. Hops take a prominent role, but are held in check with a solid malt bill...

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught. Deep redder than red colour with white head. Much lacing. Aroma is balanced hop and maltiness. Hayey flavour with a good malt backbone. Toasty finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Bailey’s Taproom, Portland. Fresh open barn door aroma. Reddish-brown color, near flat. Heavy hop hit initial; bitterness intensifies in mid palate and then balances out nicely; finish lengthens the bitterness. Thin-medium body, good carb tingle. This one is all about the hops. Belching hops, in fact.

2.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Another good red, copper colored body, with a nice hope nose like pine, however need a maltier body for better balance.

On tap at the brewery over a month ago. Pours cola brown with a beige head. Smells of brown sugar, toasted malts and chocolate. Smooth, creamy palate. Chocolate and citrus in the taste.

Reddish amber in color with a thin head. Nice roasty malt aroma light hops. Light nut flavor with the malt the hops where well balanced with this brew.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled at Art in the Vineyard in Eugene for July 4th weekend. Pours deep deep cloudy red and was primary reason I picked it over the others. A pretty nice drink. Really smooth. Crispness to it. A nicely made brew, your typical amber brew from small west coast breweries.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at the brewpub. Poured a dark red. Caramel flavoring with just a little bit of hoppiness. I was a bit disapointed, but overall not bad.
