bb (6784) - Alamo, California, USA - SEP 4, 2007
Draft. Amber beer with a cream colored head. Grapefruit/light orange aroma. Grapefruit (with some rind) flavor with caramel and a bit of earthiness. Medium body. Lingering grapefruit and rind.

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - AUG 12, 2007
Draft - Poured a darkish orange-amber in color with a small white head. Aroma was pretty strong of citrus/grapefruit hops with a bit of pine too. Flavor was nicely hoppy, but could use a bit more malt to balance it out. Not the best that I have had, but a good IPA... certainly worth repeating (and begin...).

DrBayern (1139) - Morehead City, North Carolina, USA - JUL 29, 2007
Draft at Walking Man in Stevenson, OR on 7/22/07. Clear copper color with a white head and good lace, very inviting looking. Big citrus hop aroma, very fresh, over a background of toasted malt. Medium body and carbonation, resinous and chewy. Very dry long bitter finish balances substantial caramel malt flavors

Skyview (5154) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - JUL 14, 2007
Last beer sampled on tap at the brewpub in Stevenson, Washington during ABA Beer Tour í07. Pours a clear amber brew with a thin white head that quickly dissolves clean. Aroma of light bready malt, sweet and fruity pears, with a touch of pine. Flavor is medium bodied, very light carbonation with a bread-like and citrus zest flavor. Finish is slightly dry with out much aftertaste flavor.

Crit (3318) - Surrey, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 19, 2007
Hazy amber, small beige head. Fruity hop nose. Flavor is a swirl of cat pissy and bitter hops, poorly blended

after4ever (6088) - Brier, Washington, USA - DEC 31, 2006
UPDATED: APR 2, 2008 Draft at The Barking Dog. Pours a deep medium amber, clear, with gold highlights. Scant white head. Big piney nose. Big piney attack. Big piney mid-palate. Big piney finish. You starting to notice a pattern here? Itís a tour de force, or tour de hops, for sure. Tastes boozier than it is. Moderate body, low carb. Not particularly distinctive; billed by the pub as an IPA. Tastes like one--just not anywhere near the malt profile youíd expect from an ASA. Not that thatís bad at all, just sayiní--the brewery calls this something other than what at least one bar does, and itís fairly easy to see how that happened.
Adding cask notes for 4-1-08, Park Pub. No foolin. This turns into a much more mellow grapefruit ride--still enormous bushels of that crisp and tartly bitter citric love, but everything else around it is softened and lovely. Great stuff.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - OCT 12, 2006
Draught at ale house. Strong nose of fruit malt and hops. Beige head. Deep copper colour. Strongly hopped with full flavour, I tasted this all over my tongue. Hoppy finish like a kiss. This is a fine cool weather strong ale.

alwayshalffull (3) - longview, Washington, USA - OCT 6, 2006 does not count

Had this taster at the 2006 OBF, Portland. Very dry, crisp, refreshing malt finish with a hop start. unique. nice balance.

mreeves (275) - Sammamish, Washington, USA - AUG 6, 2006
Amberish color, lots of bubbles but not much head retention. Light, diacetyl and sort of "off" flavors. Iím not sure what this is supposed to be exactly, but I donít like it.
