COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer bridges east and west with a lane dedicated to riders who aren’t afraid to get dirty. Three kinds of organic caramel malts and a 24 pound whirlpool hop bomb keep things interesting while the wheels go round and round. Cheers to narrow knobbies, kazoos, and more cowbell! 12.5°, 45 IBU

bhensonb (10736) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 23, 2009
Bomber from Liquid Solutions. Pours orange gold with a frothy off-white head. Floral/citrus aromas. Medium body with frothy carbonation. Pretty fair amount of hop bitter, with some backing caramel. Quite pleasant. Floral notes stick into the finish. A good bitter beer. Not harsh, but not wimpy.

DuffMan (6514) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 3, 2010
Bottle, shared with Parksy on his birthday! Pours a slightly hazy honey golden with an average foamy white head. Very hoppy aroma: lots of pine and grapefruit. Light biscuity malts are eclipsed by a hugely hoppy palate, lots of grapefruit rind and pine, some pepper in the finish. Very bitter-- I’d have guessed more than 45 IBUs for sure. Loved it!

marcus (6339) - Sacramento, California, USA - MAY 11, 2010
On tap at the brewpub. Pours clear yellow with a modest white head and a citrus aroma. The flavor is initially sweet caramel malt, but quickly becomes bitter with a very dry finish.

5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 23, 2011
Bottle:   Golden, slight dirty haze, large frothy off-white head, sticky lacing, very light carbonation.   Not much of a hop aroma, moreso a barnish funk of a malt aroma.   Slight earth and soil matter.   Noticeable hops on the tongue, still light tho.   Less of an organic bite than I would have thought by the nose, but still noticeable.   Lingering mealy malts, some of that barnish funk.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   A little dry on the backside, powdery, sticks to my tongue and makes me smack my lips.   Decent Pale Ale, but not as juicy/floral/bitter I would have loved. That and the fact that it was a little mealy/funky/barnish/soily sorta of detracted.   I’ll stick with their IPA.

after4ever (6069) - Brier, Washington, USA - JAN 25, 2010
22. Pours a nice cloudy bright medium orangey amber. Loose scattering of white head and sedimentary, stringy lace. Dark, earthy hop nose, a little bit of peaty sting, almost smells like rye. Bit of butter there too, more’s the pity. Creamy medium body, lively carb. Earthy, biscuity, husky mid-palate with a hot pine flash at the end. Lingering resiny finish. This might grow on me but it’s a bit imbalanced to the dry bitter side with not much holding it up.
