I agree that this is the best beer in the shipyard line up. It is an excellent PA that really puts most of my locals to shame. Hard to find.

rmussman (1701) - California, USA - MAR 5, 2007
Sampled in California suprisingly. Very nice and smooth beer. Aroma and appearance are just tame and kind of light. However the beer drinks really well and has a suprising flavor that is rich and lasting. A nice choice.

Schultsc (572) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 16, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 11, 2008 Pours a clear medium amber-gold with a medium light tan head. The aroma conveys lots of crisp, toasted grain aromatices with some herbal and spicy hops notes. The flavor is quite dry with nice grain astringency and English hops flavors of earth and fruit. Body is light and easy-going and conveys its flavors well across the palate and into the finish. Finely structured and interesting study of english grain characteristics with a pleasant hops supplement.

nearbeer (4826) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - NOV 30, 2007
12 oz, bb Jan 08. Clear orange-copper with a smallish, lasting head. Caramel-butterscotch with some earthy, tea leaf and slight orange marmalade aroma. Initial taste of malt is quickly balanced by bitter, nutty, earthy and roasted flavors. Turns to a crisp apple, caramel, and bitter green herb flavor on the finish. Dry, tingly, astringent and light bodied.

Hangover (1115) - Atlanta, Alabama, USA - NOV 16, 2010
Clear dark amber pour with a thin off white head. Aroma is very malty and very English. Rich, malty flavor with some toast/bread, medium sweetness and a creamy body. Woodsy finish, malty and slighly bitter. This is a very smooth brew and I’m glad I have 5 more of these to enjoy.

Finhead (1601) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - JUL 6, 2012
A clear amber-orange pour with an off-white head. The nose has an herbal and pine hop aroma with some light bread malt. The light body has a crisp texture with lively carbonation. It has a bittersweet initial taste that grows more bitter into a dry finish.
