3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
22 oz bomber from "Lifesource" Salem. $4.95
Screen printed label..in the colours of the "Doug Fir" flag of the Republic of Cascadia.
Mahogany dark brown ale with a nice thick creamy tan head.
Great herbal,citric and pine tones from the hops in the aroma,hint of coffee from the malts.
Surprising taste..very balanced but at the same time wildly swinging from the piney hops to the dark chocolate,toasted malts..then balanced again.
Great mouthfeel very captivating..and a very tasty bitter after taste that lingers..like good dark esspresso coffee.
Over all a very nice CDA

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
650ml bottle pours reddish brown in color with a finger and a half of light beige head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is dark roasted malts with an explosion of citrusy hops. Taste is a little more subdued with dark roasted malt sweetness and citrusy hop bitterness with a bit of smokiness. This is a really nice IPA with some decent body and carbonation leaving a decent impression on the taste buds.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:   Deep cola in color, large frothy light beige head, nice lacing.   Combination burnt malts,
lactose, pine, hops, charred wood, and campfire on the nose.   Not as malty as the nose suggested, moderate hops,
slight bitterness, a little charred wood/peat background.   Has a bit of cow pasture and minor astringency.
Finishes fairly clean tho.   Has a decent amount of sweetness, comes across as a bit of pine and lactose.
Body and mouthfeel are moderate, but does feel its on the thin side.   It almost needs to be more hoppy, more
malty, and sweeter.   This seems like a Black Pale Ale almost.   Otherwise, not bad, a little simple for this
new style.   Perhaps a good gateway example.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
In short: A ruby ale with restrained hopping. A few nice things, a few problems. Just ok.
How: Bottle 22oz. Consumed fresh a few weeks after receiving the bottle from mcberko, thanks a lot Matt
The look: Clear dark ruby body topped by a medium beige head with medium retention
In long: Nose is dank hops, spicy leafy hops as well as some fresh basic chinese tea notes. This is not a home bomb. Taste is low roastiness, a cold cup of coffee, soft red liquorice candy, light caramel, iced-tea, hard-candies, cold green tea, milk chocolate an some cocoa powder, chalk. Hopping is rather restrained. Leafy, tea-ish, tobacco, and a tiny bit piney. Bitterness level is below average for the style. This is not a hop bomb and nor is it malt heavy. Finish is annoyingly chalky. Overall I thought it was an ok beer but certainly not something I will seek-out again. Another bomber I drank alone while at home. They say that for an alcoholic it is hard to admit that you drink alone because it is a sign you are an alcoholic. But I donít have a problem with that. Itís admitting that I drink alone because nobody loves me that I have a problem with.

Pours very dark brown with nice off-white head. Mid range hoppy aroma. Roasty middle with dry finish. OK - a ways to go before its the Stone Self-Righteous.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cracking open the bottle unleashes loads of west coast hops - grapefruit being the big player. In the glass its a clear dark brown with a touch of red around the edges. Thin, but lingering head. Aroma remains the same (good). Taste. Opens very IPA-ish - doing this blindfolded I wouldnít guess it was dark. But part way through, and mostly on the finish. there is a bit of a roasty kick that comes in. All in all though I would like a bit more of a roasty punch to this. And maybe a touch more body.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 oz. bottle from curly- thanks, Jason! Pours a dark copper-brown with a big, foamy tan head. Aroma of citrusy hops, toasted malts, powdery chocolate, and dust. Flavor of citrusy hops, grapefruit, roasted malts, wood, chocolate, and coffee. Light-medium bodied, with a citrusy, bitter, toasty mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Really nice take on the style, and Iíve been impressed with everything from HUB Iíve tried so far.
