Road Trip was brewed with Pale, Crystal and Chocolate malts with hilarity, dreadful singing and fresh, new-season hops picked by the Lighthouse crew at Cedar Valley Hops Yards one fabulous day on Vancouver Island. New recipe each year.

Bottle, thanks Todd! Clear brown amber, low offwhite head. Light nutty and toffee, toasted malt base with fine leafy, herbal (juniper) and pinelike hop notes, light earthy finish, spicy aftertaste. Slightly aged bottle with a hint of oxidation, but still has a very nice balance and is a pleasant drink.

DuffMan (8318) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - NOV 17, 2014
Bottle, shared with Parksy and JJ. Medium-dark brown, amber highlights, off white head. Quite a bready and chocolatey nose, melon and mango hops. The palate is much more malty than hoppy, lots of milk chocolate, undertones are more fruity and nutty than overtly hoppy. Nice enough, but not as hoppy as I expected.

Oakes (13949) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 3, 2014
Medium brown, has a nutty nose with lots of woody hops. Sweetish nutty brown ale character. The hops that were on the nose aren’t really show up either in bitterness or flavour, which is disappointing.

Bottle into pint glass. Pours a very dark brown. Aroma is earthy. Taste is also very earthy hops with a little malt flavour. This beer is ok.

fiulijn (16924) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 24, 2014
Bottle from Boundary Crossing Liquor
Brown color, relatively clean, with medium sized head. The malt and caramel aroma is fresh and nice. The mouthfeel is dry; the caramel flavor has a cardboard accent, the bitterness is there, with some hop resins, but also light vegetable presence.
Good beer.

MunBro (893) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 22, 2014
Nice malty and chocolatey aroma. Rich brown pour. Tastes pretty much the same as their regular dark ale but with some nice hop notes for added complexity.

reebtogi (5071) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 16, 2014
650ml bottle pours a deep amber almost black color with a 2 finger light tan head that leaves no lacing on the glass. Aroma is chocolate and citrus. Taste is a chocolate malty sweetness with a light grapefruit hop bitterness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. A nicely done brew that is worth checking out.

vadie (1107) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 15, 2014
Marron très foncé, presque noir. L’arôme du malt torréfié avec du chocolat et un peu d’houblon. Le goût et le même. Un peu léger en bouche, mais plein de saveur pour une bière facile à boire.
