Sampled @ brewery, July 2004. Dark orange with lots of lacing. Roasted orange peel, some sweet nuts, spiced coconut and nutmeg... hoppy orange nose, very nice. A winner.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - FEB 28, 2006
Monster hop aroma, and I am not sure which is more over powering the spiciness or the hoppiness. Juicy, piney and full of hop oils, this is rich and full of mouthfilling flavor of grapefruit. Turning to a long bitter finish that is extremely drinkable.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 2, 2006
UPDATED: JUL 21, 2007 First tasted summer ’06 with a 3.1 total score. Re-tasted at the brewpub in summer ’07. Beautiful bright copper colour. Citrusy, woody hops with slightly toasty malts. Deep, balanced earthiness. Woody, mossy, very grapefruity hop character. Toasty malts with a hint of chocolate. Lovely.

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

Had this on tap at Bailey’s Taproom in Portland, OR. Colour... amber-orange with a thick head. Nose... citrusy hops, resinous, piney. Palate... more pine and conifer resin, citric, bitter, coating on the soft palate and throat with a loooooong finish!

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - APR 3, 2005
Pours an orange/amber with a nice white head. Tons of citrus hops throughout with a touch of hop spiciness in the finish. This tastes more like a big IPA, with a big ol hop bitter grapefruit kick in the finish.

11026 (1772) - Alabama, USA - OCT 8, 2005
Tap at Hood River Hops Fest. Orange/amber color with light haze. Yellowish tan head with good lacing. Aroma is of fresh hop and nothing else. Smells like a packet of hops is freshly opened, very piney and citric. Medium bodied. Damn drying hop presence. Bitter citrus. A hop head delight.

franksnbeans (265) - Columbus, Maryland, USA - DEC 29, 2007
Pours a light apricot amber with a thick white head. Smells of juicy Simcoe, earthy, and almost peach. Big hops in the mouth, nicely balaced with some caramel malt. Very smooth and easy to sip away on. A tasty brew.
