trujahwarrior (509) - Monroe, Washington, USA - SEP 1, 2013
12oz bottle poures a light amber color with thin whit head that leaves light lacing. smells of dough, citrus and sweet malt. Tastes of the same things. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with light carbonation. This is just a mediocre pale ale with a the only plus being the high abv.

cblado (289) - Washington, USA - JUL 28, 2015
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy golden color. Aroma is caramel malt up front, very sweet. Flavor is caramel and toffee. Palate is a bit chewy. Overall I like this beer a lot.

DuffMan (8041) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 12, 2015
On tap @ our hotel in Seattle. Medium golden, low white head. Sweet pale malts, candycorn sweetness, very low hop presence and almost no bitterness. Weird.

Big bottle. Biscuity malt, caramel, hay and grains, mild citrus and florals. Lager-ish. Well-carbonated; mildly bitter; a little oily on the palate.

22 oz bottle into a pint glass. A: Pours a murky orange color. The head...well, there isnít much head - not even a finger high. Itís off-white shade with terrible retention and almost zero lacing behind. When given an aggressive pour, the head does end up at a finger high, uniformly textured (which is a good indicator of "NEEDS MOAR HOPS"), and still poorly retaining. It actually leaves a touch of lacing behind in this state. S: This smells extremely malty. There are some hints of citrusy hops, but mostly itís a butt-load of toffee, bread, and earth. Seemingly English-style in approach; this doesnít so much disappoint me as it does realign my expectations. T: Malts hit first with plenty of toffee and earth. Itís hop character is subtle at best, but there is a noticeable citrusy quality to the finish. Once it warms up, its malt backbone just steamrolls over everything. There isnít much complexity or balance to help keep the malts in check, either. M: There isnít much carbonation here - but hey, it fits the English approach, amirite? Despite its heavy-handed malt backbone, it has a rather dry and crisp feel. While the malts win out over the unfiltered-ness, itís still a pleasant drink. O: An over-malted pale ale? An under-hopped IPA? Or maybe itís just "English-style"? Whatever it is, it isnít great. But, it isnít bad, either - especially for $2.50 a bomber. While itís too malty for me to purchase again even at its great price, Iíd still reckon itís worth purchasing once.

chinchill (3117) - South Carolina, USA - NOV 17, 2014
12 oz bottle pours slightly hazy golden-amber. Durable off-white head leaves very good lacing. Aroma: malty and sweet for style but with some hops. Flavor: somewhat opposite to the aroma, the h follows but is stronger, with a bolder hop presence and eops make their presence known largely through bitterness, but with some frutiy. Meanwhilte, thereís some caramel from the malts but not enough to completely tame the bitterness. Herbal/grassy/earthy hop aftertaste. Feel: lively, medium carbonation. Medium body. O:

Draught at St. Augustineís, Vancouver
Golden cloudy color with small head. The aroma is a bit too mild, but overall the malts are nice, crackery and biscuity, then supported by a quite strong hopping with a resiny component.
Very good.

DrSilverworm (8686) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 1, 2014
12oz bottle, purchased from Brennanís in Madison during GTMW. Twist off bottle cap. Clear amber color. Little off-white bubbly head. Mildly hazy with the final pour. Leaves decent ridges of lace. Head fades to a minimal ring soon. Medium plus body. Light carbonation. Slick oily texture. Malty crackery bready aroma dominates. Bigger sweet taste. Caramel. Very mild hop. Kind of a green olive taste. Pairing it with my grilled subway sandwich helps it immensely. Just a little olive comes out, olive taste disappears. Overall, though, an unnecessarily malty and sweet pale ale, with minimal hop.

mikedR (1562) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Incredibly high ABV for this style. Not sure if it works. I typically drink beers from 6-8% ABV, and this is one of the first that strikes me as overly boozy.

chuckstout (327) - Washington, USA - AUG 6, 2014
Caramel, a sweetness, fruit aroma. Pours clear a golden/orange with a white head and decent lacing. Good malt sweetness and hop bitterness, a bit astringent maybe slightly oxidized. With decent flavor
