bhensonb (10764) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 10, 2012
Can from Malt & Vine. Pours copper with a slight beige head. Nice aroma of resin over lightly roast caramel. Med body. Flavor is sweetish roast caramel with some citrus and resin. Even a bit floral. Itís not harsh. Itís not NWestish. But itís pretty tasty. Loaded with hop. I think itís somewhat underrated.

brokensail (10640) - Orange County, California, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Clear golden orange with a fluffy white head. Brown sugar, mild pineapple, citric hop notes, and a touch of grass. On the finish there is some noticeable alcohol. Quite sweet and sugary on the palate. Some pine bitterness, grapefruit peel, and a hint of orange. A little bit boozy, maybe some bread and toffee. A touch of perfume as well.

Bottle shared by Nat. Poured hazy copper color with an average frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with good to excellent lacing. Moderate earthy hop and sweet malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium smooth balanced flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration.This is a solid beer.
