Pours copper with a medium, lasting white head. Big hop aroma, heaps of grapefruit, bit of cara toffee, touch of orange peel too. Dry all the way through, wonderful hoppy fruity flavour. Quite woody (pine), nutty too. Medium bodied. Decent beer, alcohol completely disguised.

bottle. poured a ruby - amber - orange with a creamy tan head. I’m not much of a hop head and the aroma and first few sips are flavors and aroma of HOPS. But I find as I got to the second half of this tastey brew, I just wanted more. A quality brew and one any hop head and non-hop head should try.

Pours amber. Very light head. Nice fruit aromas. Cherry? Very, very nice flavor. Suggestion of BooBerry. Man this just outstanding. Layers, well composed, interesting. Jeezz. There is just too much going on to describe. The finish is perfection in bitterness with a wonderful aftertaste. This went over the bar.

Nice amber/orange color with a tan head. Hoppy, cascade for sure but others too, a bit spicy. Well balanced with malts, Crystal and/or Munich? Nice.
Resinous hop flavor with sweet middle and a bitter follow that begs you take another sip. A nice treat on this very snowy night!

On Tap at BWW’s a 23 oz "tall". We all know what’s up with this one. An American classic, hoppy and full of flavor.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Dark tan with small white head. A little gassy for my taste. Slighty yeasty good full body but with harsh brash bitterness at the end, not that well balanced.
