adnielsen (9077) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2014

JoeMcPhee (8411) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2010
Pale golden amber colour with a lot of fresh earthy hops on the nose. A little bit of spiciness and a solid balance of crackery malts and fresh hops. There is a nice dry-hopped resinousness on the back. It’s a simple but well made bitter… no real estery character at all.

Dogbrick (8133) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 8, 2011
UPDATED: FEB 8, 2011 Sample at the brewpub. Pours amber with a medium off-white head that recedes steadily. Spotty lacing on the glass. Aroma of bready malt and hops. Medium body with flavors of sweet malt and hops along with a touch of pine. The finish is toasted malt with a lingering sweetness left behind. Decent overall.

marcus (6493) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 13, 2007
On tap at Russian River. This pale ale poured with a thin off-white head with slightly discernible floral aroma. This brew is aptly named in that there is a strong flavor that resembles what I think dead leaves would taste like. Even though there is a low BU rating (32), this ale is quite bitter. This is an interesting brew, but not particularly satisfying.

DSG (5799) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JAN 11, 2009
(10/28/08) Draught sample at the brewpub in Santa Rosa. 5.75%. Clear deep golden color. Aroma of malt, slightly earthy hops, flowery notes and buttery hints. Sweet malty flavor with caramel notes and buttery hints. Continues with light bitterness. Medium-bodied.

TheAlum (5701) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - OCT 8, 2008
Sampler at the RR Brewpub (Santa Rosa, CA). Largely Orange body up front with a fairly clear body, and a decent offwhite head that sticks around acceptably. Aromas are caramel and citrus, decent bittering hop presence and biscuity malts. Slightly one dimensional but still an EPA, a style that borders on some stuff I really like. The malt presence is decent, but just not quite what I expected. A good beer, just a little dissappointing overall. Cheers.
