4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Walking Man Brewing & Public House in Stevenson, WA. Dark orange pour with a creamy off-white head. Clean floral hop aroma with a touch of sweet malt. Well-balanced blend of assertive, bitter grapefruit and sweet malt. Some lingering bitterness on the tongue. Alcohol somewhat detected from the dryness. Very good overall.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2012 Cask @ Red Hot. Hazy burnt orange pour with a short off-white head leaving heavy lace and having good retention. Nose is tropical fruit and pine, with some roasty malt. Medium-heavy body and light carbonation Medium-roast malt, pine and tropical fruit, and a bit of ethanol bitterness. Finish is medium, sweet and bitter. I think this might be hotter and more bitter out of a keg based on my previous tastings - seek it out on cask

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Growler served in a tulip. Deep amber-brown in color, syrupy dense looking body, with a large, fluffy orange-white head. Great retention and lacing. Bomb. Aroma is fruity orange citrus, pine, toffee, earth, and caramel. Full-medium body. Sweet attack, followed by a hit of carbonation, a creamy texture, rolling layers of robust hops with heavy malt undertones, and a piney bitter finish. Excellent brew.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap @ Henry’s Tavern, Portland. Hazy amber/copper with a beige head. Aroma is light biscuit and caramel with faint citrus and pine. Flavor is lots of sweet malt and lots of bitterness, alcohol pretty well hidden. Medium body with mild carbonation and a sugary mouth feel. I think this could have been a bit old but still decent.

Jeepers! I can’t recall how many times I’ve had this ale and didn’t rate it! "For shame, doc! Shootin’ rabbit’s wit’ an elephant gun!". Colour... cloudy yellow-gold with a fairly thick head. Nose... imagine a cross between orchard fruits and hop cones and there you have it! Palate... lemon compote, peach cobbler and apricot Turkish Delight followed by a massive wave of sweetly-dry pineapple rind and sugar sirop. Yum, yum!

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Orange notes rise from the glass with faint lemon peel. Clear copper pour with thin slightly off white head. Caramel malts start but are nicely blended with citrus hop flavor. Bitterness is very smooth. Hardly any alcohol to be found. Medium heavy body. Good DIPA - the sweetness up front is cleaned up pleasently by the bitterness.

On tap at TCBF, pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma and flavour of strong piney hops, dried fruits (apricot, orange and peach), with a strong hop punch in the finish. Most wonderful.
