3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On draft at Rustico 3/14/08. Rusty orange color with a thin white head. Caramel malt and fruity hop aroma in the nose. Flavor is very bitter, with a classic west coast cascade vibe. Body is rich and heavy on the malt, has some toffee character. Finish is somewhat bitter and long lasting. This ale tastes big, but the alcohol is virtually undetectable. Has an impressive old school homebrew quality to it that I canít quite put my finger on.

On tap at the Portland Pub. Pours rich amber with a small off-white head. Malty nose, caramel and hops. Flavor had a lot more hops, big bitter finish. This really didnít find the great qualities of dead guy for me, more bordering on IIPA then the malty goodness of dead guy.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Tylerís. Pours a deep reddish copper with a small white lace that fades. Nose is hoppy and roasty with a solid caramel malt base. Flavor is equally bitter and hoppy, with more sweet malts and again, a bit of roast in the finish. Not a huge fan of dead guy but I liked this one a little more.

Tastes very hoppy, with a solid malt base, and some mid-palate tangerine and pineapple notes. Fairly hefty palate, with a good balance and nice complexity. Iíll be looking forward to these ceramics.

Yummy! Cheers to Rogue for using my favorite hops - Cascade for the boil. A richer, bit denser version of the classic favorite Dead Guy. Plenty of familarity for Dead Guy fans, but again more rich, more toasted malt flavor. Very enjoyable, very much recommended.
