hopscotch (9151) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2012
Draft... Hazy golden ale with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The bouquet offers pale grains and those signature Simcoe, earthy, cat-pissy aromatics. Medium to full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and modest carbonation. Nice earthy hops dominate the flavor, but a firm malt backbone lends plenty of support. Finishes crisp with lingering bitterness.

Dogbrick (8113) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 27, 2009
Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a hazy dark orange color with a medium off-white head that dissipates steadily. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrusy hops and grainy malt. Medium body with flavors of citrus, piney hops and malt. The finish is grapefruit and hops with a moderately bitter aftertaste. Above average overall.

rosenbergh (6784) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 15, 2013
Draught at the Uncle Billy's Brew & Que, Austin, TX. Cloudy golden colour with a small white head. Sweet and fruity hoppy aroma. The flavour is sweet fruity hops, mild bitterness and sweet malt. Maybe a bit too sweet to be really tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 17, 2012
Bottle:   Amber with golden tint, lots of sediment as the bottle winds down, large frothy white head, fairly nice lacing.   Very soft hop nose, a touch pithy.   Getting a little bit of that Cascade hop profile towards the back of this beer.   Decent maltiness, fairly clean.   Comes across as a softer Pale Ale. &nbps Not as hoppy as other PNW examples, but as is very enjoyable and solid.   Thanks for the bottle Bill!
