Pours a slightly amber gold with a medium, off-white head, lacing minimal. Aroma of hops, malt, pine, and grass. Flavor is similar with the addition of bread. Not bad, but nothing special.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tumbler on 01.09.14.
A: See through rust color. No head. Some opaqueness at top.
S: Sweet malt. Caramel. Picking up black olive too.
T: Caramel, burnt toast, black olive.
O: The black olive flavor prompted a drain pour. Almost every beer that I’ve had from Pike has ended the same way and they’re local to me. Maybe they have QC issues.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sampler at the brewpub. Darker golden color, clear. Earthy musty hops on nose. British musty mold yeast character. Hops brighter on palate. I would prefer less mustiness and cleaner, brighter flavor.
