Draught at The Hop and Hound, Bothell, WA
Red-amber color with creamy head, cloudy. It has some caramel and timid hop. Drinkable but can get boring.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
On tap at Northwest Peaks, pours a clear amber with a small white head. Aroma brings out bready malts and dry caramel. Flavour is fairly dry and crisp, with metallic notes and dry bready notes. Pretty unpalatable for the style. Not the best.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at Brewpub. Cleaner copper red than Double Redoubt. Tall gray foam. Clean aroma, tart dry red body. Classic, solid bitter copper metallic. Very assertive beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Amber pour. Hoppy aroma. Flavor is just a bit dilute. Not enough malt to counter even the mild hops, which makes it a little minerally. Not much a fan of this one.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft at Fiddler’s Inn -- thanks to my sister-in-law for coming to town and picking up our son so my wife and I could sneak in for a quick drink on the way home. Anyway, 4 oz sample. Pours hazy amber red, with creamy offwhite head. Aroma: Pine, caramel, jolly rancher (the red one), and a little bit dank? Taste: Sweet, caramel and bread with pronounced bitterness in the finish. Creamy, smooth texture. Overall: This is my first beer from this brewery. This one didn’t really work that well for my tastes. The assertive, lasting bitter finish in this mixes the worst of both worlds -- too harsh for a mild, easy drinking amber, but too sweet and fruity to work as an IPA.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Dark brown nice head. Nose is tame. Not a lot going on.
Oaky malty and sort of medicinal. There’s a bit of cedar and honey with tangerines.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap, brewery. Pours a clear dark red with a small foamy white head, lots of lacing. The nose is lightly hoppy with some dry toasty malt, a little husky and grainy. The flavor is dry toasty malt with a little light spicy hops and a fairly crisp finish. Light bodied with fizzy carbonation, some lingering light bitterness. Pretty nice Amber without much sweetness and enough hops to keep it interesting.

I’ve had this. Nose of toast slightly sweet caramel, lightly fruity. Pours copper amber thin white head. Flavors of toast caramel residual sweetness. Light hop bitterness. Standard red. What.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: MAR 24, 2014 Red-amber, decent silken caramel-tinged head. Lovely grainy nose, nice amber malt flavor with a smooth fresh cereal graininess. Re-rated 3-22-13: Again, it is the consistent amber-red color and with a decent head. Nose is a bit more skunky this time, which carries over to the flavor as well. High levels of co-humulone, contribute to a hop heaviness throughout.
