2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Too much dirt biscuit malt obscured the hippiness of this brew. Still ok, but fades quickly and didn’t leave a great impression.

Red and slightly cloudy with minimal head. No obvious aroma. Slight fizz and minimal zesty aftertaste. Slightly bland overall. (K)

Nice red ale with plenty of Northwest citrus hops. Good aroma and caramel body. The balance is a little off and the hops don’t clean it up like it should. Residual sweetness is too thick.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark red pour with an off-white head. Lots of malty sweetness of toffee and bread. A fair amount of toast, some floral hops, and a very mild citrus peel note. Not a terribly strong flavor, but there is some nice toffee, bread, and toasted malt sweetness. Some floral and citrus peel hop notes and a fairly mild bitterness. A hint of perfume on the finish.

Picked this up on the way back from LA to Oakland, and glad I did, it’s the perfect stop after the Grapevine, I will be hitting these guys again. To the beer, poured a deep amber, little head, day old pour from a growler. Nose was malt dominated, with a hint of hops. Mouthfeel and taste; this was a little out of balance, dry hops in the front but finished slightly malty, but still dominated by the hops. Then again, maybe that was the direction with the triple hops and all. Overall good stuff, I will be stopping by again to pick up some more beer, cool pub to, even though it is Bakers-tucky.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a beautiful amber ruby color with a thin white head. Aroma is grassy malty with anice citrus kick and just a hint of pine. Flavor has a bit of malt sweetness but is balanced nicely with a good hop kick. If there’s any knock it’s that the beer is a little sweet.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap @ the brewpub. Clear reddish brown with a small beige head, low retention. Aroma of biscuity malts, faint earthy caramel, and something kinda old. Flavor is improved with caramel and toasted malts up front with some light citrus hops and just a tinge of pine. Bitterness peaked at a 2-3. Moderate carbonation with a medium body. Not too bad for a red.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
22oz bottle courtesy of solomon420. Nice red-orange color. Smells like a standard amber, ho-hum. Taste has a slight hop bitterness some malt, nothing too strong but it is very drinkable. Oddly despite the fact that the flavor and smell are so-so for the style the drinkabilityis good, this is probably a great keg beer.

Bomber via trade with Odeed, thanks Jake. Shared with my gf cyn, first beer post strong ale. Pours deep amber with a tan head. Nose is rich and malty with a hoppy undertone. Taste is quite hoppy with a nice balanced malty edge. Pretty damn nice amber.
