4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours with a creamy, tantalizing head that unfortunately doesn’t stay in full force. Mandarin-copper in color, it is very translucent. The hoppy flavor of this beer isn’t as pronounced as the nose first suggests it will be. The taste is balanced and pleasant, but the after taste loses any note of malt presence then fades quickly. Good, but not as good as I remember it on tap at the Portland Spring Brew Fest this year where it was my favortie beer in show.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Surprising amount of orange or tangerine carried on a constant and level bitterness. Decent non dry finish but reminds you that you’re drinking a decent IBU beer. Colour is great, lacing is great. Might have liked a bit more middle or sweeter malt in this perhaps. Nice though, mad not to have a go with this if you get a chance.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pour is a hazy dark yellow to orange. Large white head with tightly packed white bubbles. Aroma is a strong citrus orange and tangelo thing. Taste is initially a slight pithy bitterness then the hop flavor comes through as a lemon and orange zest. Not much malt sweetness but not too dry. Nice floral and citrus character overall. No booze noted.

Great pine and cumquat aroma
Golden, offwhite head
Resinny pine and tropical hop notes. Slightly sticky, medium body.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a finger and half of head on medium straw colored body.
The aroma is pine and more pine.
The taste is a bold pine bitterness with a good malt backup to balance it out nicely.
The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation.
An enjoyable and solid ale.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
A - Pours a vibrant deep golden hue with a massive, chunky head that leaves lots of lacing on the way down.
S - Slightly piney with a hint of caramel.
T - Starts off wheaty, continues to hints of pine and finishes with a strong resiny bitterness.
M - Medium to heavy bodied with ample effervescence.
O - An excellent example of the style. This has the whole package. I heard the brewery is going to stop making this one ... What a shame.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draught at the Tap Room in Tillamook. Mild bright malty nose. Light straw color. Thick, syrupy maltiness in initial / goes to a sort of bitterness and then balances quickly. Medium body. Thick and rich, but not really as tasty as an imperial should be.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle to glass. About 3 months old. Pours a clear golden light amber color with a frothy off white head. Aroma is citrusy, piney, floral, with a moderate malty sweetness and some alcohol heat. Flavor is quite bitter with a floral piney malty sweetness. Smell spice character as well. Medium body with an astringent finish. Quite boozy. Good, but wish I would have had it a bit closer to the bottling date.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours a very opaque orange-amber color with a moderate white head on it. Nose is fairly floral to me, though the hops seems like they are beginning to turn. Taste is a little bitter, but there is some residual sweetness that hangs in there to balance it out. OK.
