Sweeter caramel aroma, something seems a little off as well. Some hops- but they are generic hop smells. Perhaps a little pepper or earth. Pours amber, lasting head and lace. Sweet up front, caramel, a little sugar, some hop flavor, bitterness is medium, pepper earth, something a little weird there as well. Not as bad as it sounds, it was drinkable, but I guess I was expecting more. Stupid me. Fuck.

with an IBU of 105, i expect the taste bud twinge i get from my wife’s spaghetti right from the initial sniff. didn’t happen. hoppiness is there but doesn’t linger long enough.

UPDATED: AUG 26, 2013 8-11-11 Amazing Beer. THIS ONE IS FOR HOP LOVERS. High IBU, good construction, aroma and mouthfeel. 7-28-13 poured from bomber; Perhaps kept this one too long. Remember more hops in taste/smell. Aroma was nil. Good light sienna color. 6.2 BD; 6 Joek nice color but expected more; 7.1 Josh

Pours a cloudy amber with a thick, light-tan head. The aroma is mostly sweetness, but the aroma is very light - not a lot there. Flavor has an upfront mix of sweetness and moderately caustic bitterness. I am tasting a lot of fruit candy. All of this sweetness is decently balanced by bittering hops and some citrus flavor. However, the sugary flavor gets to be too much before finishing a 22oz bottle.

raphael (838) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 26, 2011
Bottle from Otto’s. Very strong strawberry aroma with hints of caramel and and oak. Clear amber with good off white head. Still strawberry in the flavor but moderate bitterness coming out, grapefruit-aluminum (would be unpleasant if stronger). thin and a little flat in the mouth. bitter but rounded finish.

5000 (6023) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 25, 2011
Bottle:   Cloudy amber, large frothy white head, fairly nice lacing.   Very sweet grapefruit nose, slight earth/soil in the background.   Pronounced earthiness right up front, rindish but not biting, a tad sweet to start, with the hops bringing up the rear.   All this time I get a musty basement/wet dirt background.   A little citrusy too.   Moderate body and mouthfeel.   Mild hop bitterness on the exit, enough sweetness to balance it out.   Could use less of that earthy/soily aspect tho.   Otherwise, pretty tasty.

savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 24, 2011
On tap @ Davis St Tavern, Portland. Copper in color with an off white head. Aroma of sweet caramel and a bit of citrus. Flavor is overly sweet and sugary with some hop bitterness hiding in there. Medium body with average carbonation and a syrupy, flabby mouth feel. This seemed very underattenuated, did not like.

Always stoked on some random brewery you’ve never heard of... Cloudy orange. Grapefruity nose. Super resinous palate, quite hoppy. My friend wasn’t so sure what to think about this one until I told him with the 105 IBU’s that was what they were going for. Pretty good.
