9th July 2010
Clear brown beer, decent cream head. Palate is slightly soft. Nice malt with good dark toffee perfectly supports fresh hops that bring sweet pineapple, grass and pine. A perfect dash of aniseed at the end. Creamy malt too! Another belter from Lagunitas.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught, 9.97%. Cloudy dark red colour. Small white head. The flavour is quite roasted, quite malty, and quite bitter. Malt syrup notes. Rather slimy mouthfeel. Vinous aftertaste. OK beer, but a bit rough around the edges.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle, 22oz. It pours a hazy, golden body with a dense, beige head. Lovely beef-stock aroma, malty, caramelly, sweetish and with a lovely hoppyness. Malty and sweet flavor, pine and resin also playing a major part, nice bitterness, and some beef-stock notes. Full to medium body. So bitter it almost feels stinging in the mouth. Long, piney and resiny finish. Love the hop-profile in this one, and it’s sort of balanced as well, with all its maltyness. (080314)

Gbbf 2012. wow now that is good. Like a hoppy barley wine. Some overt sweetness true. The aroma is magical. Promises so much. Some burn and heat on finish. But its pretty beery good. Lovely beer. A sipper.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Draught: Archer Ale House, Bellingham, WA. Bright copper colour. The aroma is slightly floral with brown sugar notes and woody hoppiness. Bitter, woody hop character with slightly chewy brown sugar malts. The finish is a bit astringent and alcoholic. Not really sure where they’re going with this. It shows me nothing new and isn’t particularly palatable. These flavours and aromas are better served as instruments in an orchestra rather than being the whole band.
