I fell in love with this beer after the first sip. And I donít say that often. I just found it that good. It had an enticing nose filled with chocolate and citrusy hops. Then a great mouthfeel and a dryish finish. Huge pine bursts in the mouth right off the bat. A sappy sweetness quickly morphs into an explosive bouquet of hop aromas (pine trees, flowers, wild grasses and mint). Like fresh herbs coated in a resinous syrup. Chocolate and dark grains also take hold of your olfactories. Man, what a tasty, fresh-tasting Cascadian Dark Ale. Easily one of the best Iíve ever had.

On Tap at the River Room, Whole Foods, Boise. Clear dark redish brown. Dense tan head. Muted faint aromas of light west coast citrusy hops and a touch of toasted malt. Flavor is definiately down a notch from standard CDAs in its sessionability but it i still and nice example of the style.

NachlamSie (3060) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 25, 2010
Pint at brewpub. Pours darn black. Itís basically the same shade as their stout. Delightfully hoppy aroma on this one. Plenty of grapefruit and dank herbs make this smell super nice. Hops transfer well to the flavor. Grapefruit flavors clash well with chocolaty malts. Great American style ale.

hawthorne00 (3044) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - SEP 13, 2013
Bottle, 10C. Dark red brown with a beige head that fades. Floral grapefruit and lemon aroma with some coffee and licorice. Very light-bodied, has that lack of presence/ weediness that sometimes turns up in organic beers. A little mocha, licorice, plenty of citrus flavours, pine. Finish is dry and fairly bitter.

maekchu (2905) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 20, 2014
Tap at Hopworks BikeBar. Light chocolate nose, with some anise. Dark translucent brown. Gentle roasty initial, with chocolate, and some grain, decent bittering. Finish fades out quickly. Medium body. The high IBU level is not quite apparent in the flavor. Okay.

SphinxTX (2876) - Mata Gorda, Texas, USA - MAY 6, 2010
bottle thanks to thirdeye11. Pours a dark brown/black with tan head. Aroma is very hoppy and kinda over powers the dark roasted notes. Flavor isnít much different, has some sharp pine. Medium body with medium-high carbonation. Overall, not all that bad.
