AlabastorJones (810) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 11, 2010
Clear amber body, fluffy tan head, aroma is rich barley and soft floral hops, flavor is deep caramel, upfront bitters without much hop flavor, bitters all the way through to the end of this swig, finishes dry, I think this is a great example of an american strong ale one of the best I’ve had in a while.

pinkzambia (1653) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 24, 2015
Growler: Clear brown color with a tan head. Semi-hoppy and malty cereal aroma. Kind of a mealy aftertaste. Nothing that special.

djd07 (5894) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUN 21, 2015
On tap at Hopworks Bikebar. Pours a clear copper with medium creamy white head that lasts. The aroma is grain and toasted malt. Medium mouth, caramel, bready malt, light bitterness, decent.

KyotoLefty (7452) - Kyoto, JAPAN - APR 17, 2015
Tap at Imazato. Nose of caramel, cherry, raisin, earthy hops, mint. A bit flat in flavor and body. Somewhat dull caramel malt, minty, earthy hops. Not so impressive but ok.

DedicatedToFun (3913) - Santa Monica, California, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Tap, amber pour, off white head, nose and taste are caramel, sweet, nutty, boozy

DSG (8367) - Tel Aviv, - MAR 16, 2015
[2/26/15] Draught at Hopworks BikeBar in Portland. Clear amber. Aroma of malt, caramel and light hoppiness. Flavor has some sweet caraemelly malt and bitter piney hops. Medium-bodied.

maxwelldeux (4160) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JAN 24, 2015
Bottle. Pours a mostly clear amber color with a smallish off-white head on there. Nose is strong with grains, and has some toasty bread notes to it as well. Taste is moderately dry with a bit of a bite on the back end. Almost tastes like there’s sorghum to it. Odd.

stevoj (2833) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 26, 2014
Velvety smooth, orange copper ale with small creamy head, thick lacing. Light malty aroma leads into smooth biscuity flavor with hops on the backplane. Overall alcohol warmth minus the burn.

22415brewery (379) - Washington, USA - SEP 23, 2014
Pours a very pretty ruby red, clear, good head. Medium caramel malt aroma hits you first, sweet toffee like aromas, there’s a citrus hop background, but not too overpowering or up front. Sweetness is kept in check, well-balanced with the bitterness which is smooth. A very enjoyable double-ale.

Caytinator (1000) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - SEP 7, 2014
22oz bomber. Bitter amber ale, west-coasty. Clear beer, no lacing, goes down to a collar. Hop aroma is a good basic hoppy aroma, something stanky in there, though. Taste is mostly fresh, hoppy, with not much complexity; good, nonetheless. Pretty good, I’d like to try it on tap.

hopwine (523) - brooklynzzzzz, New York, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Nose is crusty bread, caramel, dried fruit. Flavor is same plus piney, spicy hops.
