3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ Lucky Labrador. Nice orange colored beer with a sticky white head. Sweet caramel and bread. A little on the grassy side in terms of the hop character. Sort of mild but not bad. The flavor is mostly on the sweet side. Just a bunch of bread, caramel, and toast. Kind of grainy and grassy bitterness on the back end. Not bad.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
On tap at Lucky Labrador, pours a hazy golden orange with a small beige head. Aroma brings out moderate astringent hops above anything. Flavour is on the hoppy side for an alt, with dry bready malt and dry citrus hops. Pretty weak and uncomplex. Not very good.

On tap at the brewery. Pours a deep copper color with a medium white head. A nice mellow fruity malt with some orange peel in the nose. The flavor is pretty interesting: bitterness, sweet earthy malts, clean and finishes with more hop bite. Nice brew.

Cask at Lucky Lab on Hawthorne, PDX, 26/05/13.
Hazed dark amber orange with a thin off white head.
Nose is caramel, touch of hops, bitter orange notes.
Taste comprises orange pith, caramel, biscuit, bread, touch of hops and a little pine thrown in.

Drinkable stuff but not particularly true to style - leave the hops out US brewers it won’t hurt you occasionally !!!

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Piney aroma with malt notes, a sweetish malt flavor with some fruit, and moderate-to-high bitterness. Drinks smooth after several IPAs, and I mean that as a complement.
