COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Portland Classic! This strong ale has a deep mahogany color and is crafted with seven different specialty malts. A touch of smoked malt gives it a complex aroma and incredible flavor. LSD is also generously hopped with six hop varieties to help create an awesome beer.

Thin white head, pours orange color. Smells hoppy but not strongly. Taste is somewhat hoppy but somewhat bland too. Palate is too watery. More complexity and hoppiness would be nice. I thought this was an IPA and not a strong ale, just a low hop IPA.

On tap at New Old Lompoc. Cloudy amberish brown with a white head. Aroma of hops and caramel. Flavor has notes of toasted malt, a hint of roastiness, big caramel, toffee with plenty of bitter hops on the back end. Very well balanced. Full, creamy body with moderate carbonation. Nice stuff.

The bar keeper was nice enough to give me samples of both the regular draft, and the nitro version. The nitro LSD had a strange vinegar and yogurt nose. The flavor was drained and unpleasant, but the regular LSD was quite the opposite. Hard fruit, and roasted malt aroma. Nice and inviting. Hard fruit, lightly smoked, with just a touch of chocolate. Hints of alcohol and complexities. This brew is almost like a fusion of scottish ale and IPA. Not a bad beer, just skip the nitro LSD.

Dark copper color. Small head. Aroma is caramel with a touch of smoke. A medium bodied strong ale. Malts are roasted, toffee, dark fruit and a touch of wood. Touches of wood and smoke. Kind of a very hoppy Scottish Ale. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
