3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hand bottled from bman1113vr. Deep golden with a frothy white head. Strong hoppy nose with pine and grass notes. Strong grassy hop flavors (reminds me of the GLBC Burning River) with a bready malt backbone. Great hop burps. As it warms a peach/apricot fruitiness starts to show.

On tap at the brewpub; was a little skeptical based on its claim of being in the style of Northwest. However, it did not disappoint. Poured an orange color; didn’t make notes of the head. Aroma was citrus and fruity; flavor was similar with only a moderate bitter bite at the end. However, the hop flavor was spot on; good for the style.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAR 20, 2008 Pours light golden, with very little head. Aroma is a nice piney hop flavor with maybe some cedar too. I really liked the fresh, woodsy smell of this one. Taste was of some mild hop bitterness, and a good balanced malt behind it. Overall a slightly sweet pale ale that is very drinkable. I liked it a lot and ordered a pint after having it in the sampler. My favorite of the NXNW beers so far.

An absolute disgrace. This is a catastrophe of cookie malts meeting semi-bright English hops at a sub-interesting threshhold. Barely finishable. I'm pissed off.
