AlabastorJones (800) - San Francisco, California, 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.

Caytinator (943) - 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.

Tap at Hopworks BikeBar. Gentle caramel nose, with some fruit punch. Copper color Light sweet caramel initial, a touch of spice, nice fizzy fruity tang in final. Some alcohol warmth. Thin-medium body. Works out nicely, if a bit sweet.

bpreo (1609) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - JUN 1, 2014
D.O.A. by H.U.B. It’s not dead on arrival, but Deluxe Organic Ale. It’s an American Pale Ale with a typical flavor. Nice and strong, tasted fine.

Sarlacc83 (746) - Oregon, USA - MAR 7, 2014
On tap. A: Dark caramel color. Thin head. Modest lacing. N: Pineapple, caramel, toffee, malt, esters. Cracker. T: Sweet and a little savory. Bitterness is restrained. M: Medium heavy. A bit oily. No alcohol presence. O: I had this years ago, and I wasn’t impressed. They’ve made it a superior beer - good for those who enjoy Arrogant Bastard.

Gription79 (2262) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 27, 2013
Had on draft at the brewery. This is caramel malts, fruity hop character with some slight floral notes, slight alcohol fruitiness as well as some heat. I am impressed.

On tap from a sampler at the brewery in Portland: subdued light crisp - bready, nutty, bitter - surprised it’s nearly 7abv - felt almost sessionable. 7.0
