3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught in a flight at the brewpub. Pours a mostly clear amber color. This is a confusing beer... Nose has some rye spice to it, yet has some sour fruit elements. Definitely a bold aroma that’ll make you think. Taste is a little bitter from the hops, yet finishes sour. Remarkably warming as a drink, which was welcome on a cold winter day.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rich hazy muddied brown coloured body with a thin deep tan head about two centimetres thick. Aroma of earth, pungent dry and herbal hops, some alcohol and a few hints of sugars. Medium-bodied; Great balance of hops and dry malt with an emphasis on the hops - very nicely layered throughout with some good sweetness and twangs of earth. Aftertaste is nice with a bitterness flavour from the hops and some smooth sugars at the tail end. Overall, a nice beer with an emphasis on the hops and a good balance throughout! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Belmont Station in Portland, Oregon a few hours ago on 07-December-2013 for US$4.99 sampled in my hotel room here in Portland just an hour or two later on 07-December-2013.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
From bottle. Deep amber in color. Citrus aroma with some sweet maltiness. Taste is dark malt and very tart citrus hops, with a bitter note. A bit too bitter and unbalanced in the finish.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Yeast sediment, chunky and present. Murky brown body.
American hops present. Clean caramel toffee malts. Clean H20.
Pleasant, not mind blowing. No roastiness, caramel complexity, strong hop flavors.
Strawberry fruit roll-ups.
First drain pour in a while. Taste like nail polish as it warms.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
On-tap at the brewery. Pours a light amber with some brown. Flawed. Definite cooked vegetable aroma and flavor, signs of DMS and stale, off-putting oxidation. Hops are very muted and indistinguishable. Slightly tart with muddled malt flavor. The beer served to me was either old, tainted, or flawed or perhaps all three.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Couleur ambrée foncé avec un col moyenne beige/blanc. L’arôme d’houblon légèrement sucré. Le goût est presque IPA impérial, mais pas vraiment. C’est comme un mauvais IPA, mais onctueux et fort.

Pours a beautiful copper color. Bready aroma carries through in the flavor, with as little sour and just a little bitter.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Think I caught this one midway through a funky journey. Light sweetness, some nuttiness, stewed vegetables, and old dishrag. Reminded me a lot of a failed homebrew attempt I made years ago. Perhaps in the early stages of infection.

Bottle shared by me, alone. Pours dark with a lot of head. Nice and thick on top. Lots of caramel malts and some hops on the nose, flavor is similar. Not sure how to describe it but its good.
