Tap @ Brouwer’s Cafe. Clear amber pour with a minimal white head leaving a heavy lace. Fruity/flowery/grassy nose leading into a hoppy middle balanced between bitter and flavor, all supported by a heavy body. The malt is well-integrated and tastes of honey, cocoa and possibly apple - couldn’t quite place all the elements but they were very welcome! Very impressed with my first WM, a visit to their pub is a must!

Tasted on tap at Walking Man. A great imperial IPA. Not overpowering in the hops or alcohol taste. Just a splendid mix of bittering and flavoring hops.

16 ounce sample on tap at Henry’s Tavern in Portland, OR. Aroma has a fair amount of grassiness with some piney, earthy notes present. Kind of metallic and a bit sweet. Moderately hazy light amber body with a foamy off-white head and good lacing. Starts with earthy hoppiness with some grassy notes present. Becomes a little sweet with some husky tannins. Finishes with some grapefruity citrus hop flavors. Mild ethanol and pretty dry. Becomes too dry and harsh later on.

Draught at Henry’s. Malty and nice IPA with decent hops that fill out the taste. Medium body.

Draft at Uber. Peach golden with a slight haze and small white head with sticky lacing. Sharp caramel dank hopiness, apricot, dried papaya and pineapple. Sweet fruity caramel with some butterd white bread, sharp hay bitteing, and non descript tropical fruit. Smooth for 9% but flavors are a bit mutted really.

BOOM. This is what your standard of a DIPA should be. Big, juicy, and bitter, this starts out with all your favorite grapefruity/citrus bits, and blasts you with a heavy sweet malt throughout the body. LOTS of hoppy notes run all over the palate, winding around to keep that bitter edge on your tongue well after each sip. Definitely grab a pint of this if you see it on tap!!

On tap at Brouwer’s Hopfest ’09. Pours a deep amber with a small head. Nice balance, lots of ripe fruits in the aroma, which overshadow the hops a bit. Slightly malt-heavy, but still balanced enough - certainly not bad, but not outstanding.

Draft. Hazy orange with a thick white head. Pine aroma with some citrus. Flavor is more pine and floral, a little heady sweetness. I have only tried one bad Walking Man beer, and this definitely wasn’t it.

On-Tap at Life of Riley poured into chilled Pint glass. Pours a hazy amber colored with a fuffly slightly off-white head that lingers for some time and never fully dissolves. The aroma is packed full of grapefruit, resinous hops and some slight caramel malt. The flavor has much more of the same but with more malt and sticky hops. This is a medium bodied beer and is sticky. I liked this beer but was pretty quick to move onto the next.
