2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bomber thanks to my friends Erin & John. Pours opaque amber with thin white head. Aroma is malty & hoppy; caramel, citrus, and bread. Flavor is grassy, earthy, bitter with a thin body. I also detect some malty chemical sugary-ness that throws the whole experience off for me.

Bottle... Poured an amber/orange-ish with a medium, white head. A nice, mild ale with noticeable esters a low to medium hop bitterness. Quite sessionable and an earthy, creamy, sugary, malt profile.

Clear amber, small white head. Aroma of leather and dry leaves. Sweet caramel, smoky ham, light on the hops. Balanced to the point that the hops never really come out until beyond the finish.

Draught @ WABF 2008. Pours a slightly hazy orange color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity malty slightly piney hoppy aroma. Fruity malty hoppy flavor with some piney hints. Sweetish malty finish with some light bitter hoppy aftertaste.

Had at brewery and in my opinion this was the worst beer they had. Pours hazy bright orange with slightly bubbly white head. Smells literally like nothing. Flavor very light and watery with slight piney hop presence. Has the taste of a beer that maybe at one time was good until grain and hop prices went up. I think they cheaped on this beer to cut costs.

12 ounce bottle from By The Bottle in Vancouver, WA--Poured a dull golden-copper body with a medium white head. Nose of floral citrus hops and biscuit malts. Hops linger as beer gets drunk. Very nice and sessionable.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
6/14/08 On draught at the Washington Brewers Festival. Aroma is hoppy. Appearance is hazy gold with a low white head. Flavor is balanced but starchy and resiny, more so in flavor than texture. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a low carb texture. Overall, well balanced but too much towards the IPA side.

Bottle. Aroma of piney hop, medium malt, and perhaps a citrus hint. Hazy red tinged amber color with a white head that filmed quickly. Left decent lacing though. Medium bodied. Strong carbonation. Starts with a slightly sour hop, along with fairly strong malt. Thins as the carbonation leaves. The finish is not entirely dry, and along with bitter, there is some citrus sour at the back of the mouth.
