On Tap at Scuttlebutt
Slightly hazy redish brown. Good off white head and lacing. Woody maltiness and hopped well. Bitter finish and a nicely balanced beer overall.
The Nitro sampled at the same time was similar but I thought also that some of the rich malt flavors were not as noticeable. The creamy nitro head and palate were the main difference.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: JAN 24, 2005 Deep burgandy with a monstrous rocky head and reeking of amber malts. The malt disappears upon first sip and the hops show themselves in the form of spicy, floral spears of grass. Unusual how the malt is so drastically there one minute and gone the next, but itís not so depressing when there are hops this interesting keeping you satisfied.

9/8/07 On draught on WABL Yakima trip. Aroma is malty, sweet forward with a strong earthy noble hop balance. Appearance is a very hazy medium brown. Flavor is a very solid blend with sweet malt slightly dominant but great presence of complex grains, earthy noble hops and citrus. Texture is medium bodied with a medium carb feel and dry finish. Overall, great complexity and a true craft flavor that feels very English in nature.

A clear amber in my glass at the brew pub. Not much aroma but the flavor is on. Only a bit of hop balance. Essay drinking and not bad. Good with the wings.

UPDATED: APR 2, 2009 On nitro at Wallingford Pizza House. Pours clear reddish copper with a decent beige head. Smell and taste are fairly subdued. Mostly roasty biscuit/cookie malts with a slight hop kick and a little caramel sweetness. Faintly hoppy finish.

On tap at Scuttlebutt. Pours a reddish brown hue with a decent slightly off-white head on top. Aroma is slightly yeasty and sweet with hops coming in pretty well. Flavor is pretty hoppy and spicy with a nice sweetness coming in from the malts. Easy on the palate and a middle of the road body.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Brewpub tap; advertised as a crisp grapefruit flavor but I didnít taste much of the grapefruit but did pickup on the bitterness normally associated with the grapefruit; decent safe beer; also had a Nitro Sequoia Red which made the head really pop and cut down on the bitterness a bit; a bit more enjoyable; I rate the nitro as 3.4.

Got this on the nitro tap at the brewery. Not a super flavorful beer but still pleaant. The foam was fine and thick - characteristic of a nitro tap.
