savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - FEB 9, 2013
22oz bottle from PDX. Clear deep amber with a smallish off white head. Aroma of pine, citrus, caramel, prune and alcohol,. Flavor is toasty/bready malt, clean hop bitterness, dried fruit and a light alcohol warming. Medium body with a somewhat slick mouth feel. Really interesting beer, lots of northwest hop character with toasty malt and light alcohol, it all comes together well.

"This beer achieves a nice balance between dark malts, lighter malts, and spicy and citrus hops, but was still pretty bland, and therefore ultimately forgettable. Maybe I’m the anomoly...95 on RB when had/97 now."

Bomber. Such a nice drinking beer for the winter. Love the hop forward taste and interesting aroma. The higher carb scores points with me as well.

TheHOFF43 (1756) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Wasn’t sure on the style here, guessed IPA, I was wrong. Hoppy, lots of citrus hops, floral and great. I get very little malt from this, really enjoyed it though.

thegreenrooster (3241) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 1, 2014
Pour is a hazy brown with a average white head. Aroma is oily hops and sweet caramel malts. Flavor is a decent dark malt with some resin hops. Finish is toffee caramel malts with pine and a bit of mint. Decent winter warmer but I was expecting something even hoppier then I got. It’s still a hoppy ale with lots of malt backbone

Wonderful citrus/grapefruit aroma. Clear amber with thick fluffy head. Mildly bitter (again with more grapefruit) melds perfectly with the malt. This is a great beer.
