On tap at New/Old Lompoc on NW 23rd Avenue, Portland. Hazy copper colour, lasting off white head. Sweet sherbert hop aroma. Rose petal fruit in mouth. Malt is ok. But is then overtaken by this huge mix of sherberty sweet hop. Not astringent nor overly bitter, but just extreme sherbert. Some grapefruit. Finish starts as beer begins. Just way too hoppy. Nice rose petal and grapefruit though.

Cloudy amber. Woody, grapefruity, leafy aroma. Moderate bitterness. Lots of toasty, caramelly malts and chewy, woody hops. Not bad, but a bit too much crystal malt for my liking.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
22oz bottle-pours a foamy to rich tan head that laces and dark copper color. Aroma is nice sweet pine/citrus-grapefruit. Taste is very dry, quite bitter pine/resin/citrus-grapefruit hops, puckering. A palate killer that was mostly raw hops at the beginning. Half way through the pint, it still had its raw edge but was quite enjoyable, although the balance scale seemed 6 parts hops 1 part malt. Great beer. Although no way a session beer. Thanks to skourtis for this trade with jwc215 & me.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Liquid Solutions. Pours reddish copper with a think tan head. So much citrus/floral hop that the roast malt is nearly hidden. Medium body with creamy carbonation. The flavor is lush hop. Floral, citrus, maybe a touch of resin, and there’s roast malt underneath. A slight hop burn in the finish. This is a really good one.
