4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
An all-around very good beer, with a nice touch of caramel malt sweetness set against a backdrop of citrusy PNW hops. Easy to drink, good-tasting. Obviously a touch too expensive, but hey, at least their beers are never disastrously bad like some expensive breweries from overseas...

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Caramel malt, pine, lots of citrus, and a little alcohol in the aroma. Flavor is bitter with citrus, pine, and strawberry. Finish is sweet with some drying alcohol. Another great beer from a great brewery.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Citrus and caramel aroma with a thin creme colored head that dissipates. Pours murky deep orange brown with little carbonation. Solid hop punch but with little complexity and a bit boozy.

This one poured darker amber color with a white head. Aroma was of fruity hops, caramel, and mild yeasty character. Flavor was similar, a bit sweet, very clean like all of their stuff. Definitely on the verge of a hoppy barleywine.

Bottle. Clear, sharp hoppy nose, with harsh fruit and a little chlorine. Dark golden straw color. Sweet caramel, spicy hops,and finish edges on date puree. Medium body with good mouthfeel. Intense, but it does balance out eventually.

4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
This is an excellent pale ale. Lacy with good body and easy on the palate. Well worth the wait in finding this gem. $8 a bottle is a little steep given that Sculpin and Dogfishhead 90 are more economical and equally as good. But something to put on your beer bucket list for sure.

Thanks Dana. Caramel pour w/ a beige head. Aroma is hops and malt. Taste is spicy hops balanced by a tasty malt backbone. Hoppy aftertaste. A very enjoyable beer from initial smell to the lingering aftertaste. Nice lacing.
