Bottle @ tasting. Aroma has spicy and herbal hops, some pine. Flavour is medium bitter, some caramel malt sweetness and again herbal and plant like hops. Okay.

Pours a reddish amber. I found it to be a little too malty. The aftertaste was off. Probably not something I'd try again.

Pours reddish amber with a nice wispy tan head. Medium bodied with lush carbonation. Notes of resinous citrus, chocolate malt, toffee malt, fair bit of roast. I found the roasted malt to clash a bit with the hops.

This is what it would be like to eat a mouthful of hops, if the hops were cold and wet instead of dry and leafy. Eventually some malt comes through. This beer is very hop forward, but not terribly bitter.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Purchased in a six pack from Paul’s Grocery in McCall, Idaho. Pours a clear dark copper color raising a medium sized beige head and light lacing. Nose of roasted malt with some citrus and floral hops. Medium in body. Flavor is a good balance of malts and the hops, with some chocolate in the malts and pine in the hops. The finish is slightly bitter and dry . Good for the style.

Pours clear brown with a medium beige head, fine lacing. Aromas of pine, nuts, toast, and chocolate. Medium-light body, creamy and zesty, lightly dry. Little sweetness, a hint of citrus, then a lasting medium bitter finish. Very drink
able. Big and interesting for an amber.
