5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Bottle:   Straw colored, hazy, moderate frothy white head, clumpy lacing.   Bright bready/doughy aroma.   Soft floral and tropical fruit notes.   Pale breadiness on the tongue, very yeasty and doughy.   The soft floral and tropical fruit also presides towards the back.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Finishes with a bright yeasty breadiness with underlying notes of tropical fruit and flora.   Nothing out of the ordinary, but well made for an American brewer.

after4ever (7581) - Brier, Washington, USA - SEP 8, 2012
22, capped and waxed. Pours a clear golden amber with a dense white head that sticks around a while. Spicy, peppery nose, with a bit of palm sugar type sweetness poking through, or maybe honey-like. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Spice and white pepper on the mid palate, with caramel and honey under. Very solid and flavorful beer. Good stuff.
