Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 19, 2007
Very refreshing hoppy red ale that poured a deep amber brown hue with a healthful head. England meets Oregon in this original yeasty beast. Great bitter/malt components with lasting mouthfeel. Goddamn solid beer, I’d drink it nearly any day!

harrisoni (14682) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2006
On tap at Pilsener Room and also Laurelwood, Portland. My favourite beer of my 2 week travels of the PNW. I came here with no love of amber ales, and this not only changed my mind, but completely won me over. Copper/amber with lasting beige head. Lovely hop. Good creamy feel in mouth with malts. Nice hop finish. Makes you want to drink more. It was so good, I bought the T shirt. I drank more of this than anything else I tried.

DYCSoccer17 (3447) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 13, 2006
On tap at Laurelwood Publick House in Portland, OR. 5 ounce sample. Some piney/grapefruity hops present in the nose initially. Light toasted malts are also present. Pretty hoppy with cascades dominating. Some scant sweetness present in the aroma as well. Dark copper/light amberish transparent body with frothy off-white head and nice lacing. Very attractive. Piney/hempy hop flavors immediately hit the tongue, but not destroyingly bitter. Backed up by lots of sweet, caramelly malt goodiness. Small hempy hops come in at the end, producing a light bitter finish. Well done!

presario (4817) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 28, 2006
Didn’t realize some of the beers were organic. Moderate hop aroma. Orangey-gold colour. OK Light hop flavour and body. Still timid and mainstream.

imrichbeeeatch (16) - USA - JAN 16, 2006
On tap at Brewpub. Nice head on top of light amber colored beer. Beautiful aroma. Full of citrus (grapefruit, lime, lemon) and flowers (honeysuckle). First taste is all hops. Kind of "green" tasting, perhaps from the amount of hops in this beer. After initial hops comes nice caramel sweetness, then right back to that green hop flavor. Taste to me what I would imagine chlorophyll to taste like. Nice beer, not as bitter as I would have thought (the chalkboard at the pub said 60 IBU’s). Balanced flavors, tasted a little too new.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2006
Translucent auburn color with a lite fuzzy head. The aroma is got that funky cascade hop aroma, almost not to rip off what McPhee said, but it does have a bit of an earthiness, the malt character is very subdued and I also tasted a bit of that buttery diacteyl. This beer could be so much more.
