Bottled. Not bad, but was very grainy for my mouth. It also had a refreshing citrus flavor. Slight bitter finish.

Pours with a Reddish-brown body topped by a medium thick ehad with some lacing. It’s slightly sweet and malty with a slight caramel note and a nice hoppy, piney note showing through. Medium bodied and smooth.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at O’Briens. Arrived in the glass a beautiful, clear copper color with a small beige head. Aroma of toasty and caramel malts, balancing of floral and citrus hops. Nice crisp hop flavor upfront, citrus, lemon with a balancing malt backbone, toasty and light fruity malts, lemon peel in the finish. Light to medium body, with prickly carbonation.

On tap at the Rogue Public House in San Francisco. Pours dark amber with an off-white head. Serious cascade hop aroma. Ungodly thick head with dynamite lacing. Oddly, the hop flavor is medium and does not match the aroma. A very pleasant malty body and palate. Good beer.

Had this while I was on vacation in San Fran. I didn’t have a notebook with me so I’ll give it the average rating for now. Definitely not bad, though.

12 oz Bottle: Might have had a strange batch as the head came pouring out of the top of the bottle. The pour also had an explosive head. Another explosion was that of the aroma. A very floral, lemony, citrus aroma. Some undertones of caramel, malts, and hops. A great aroma. It also had an orange-brown-amber color beneath that head. The flavor is quite nice as well. A much stronger precense of hops than in the aroma. Flavor also consisted of some sweet caramel, some cool malts (a part of the mouthfeel), lemon, a touch of prunes and some floral fruity flavors as well, also felt there might have been some pine. A good flavor. Nothing too strong, dominant or impressive, but all very good flavors and in a nice balance.

Big rocky head on top of this deep amber coloured ale. Interesting aroma of toast in addition to caramel maltiness and earthy, somewhat spicy hops. Some citrus appears among the earthy, toasted caramel flavours, never at any point sweet, finish is quite dry. Medium-bodied. An extraordinary amber ale.
