12 oz serving from a 6-pack from Fred Meyer in S.Salem.
Clear hazel nut brown colour with a large creamy thick eggshell white head.
Hoppy aroma first..citrus,orange.papaya..not expected for style but nice .Slightly caramel malts in the back.
Taste is more like style with the caramel malts taking a better place.Hops still there..PNW style. Its fine enough.
Mouth feel is fine and the beer is medium carbonated.
OK beer but not the best and the hops are not to style.
This beer pours a copper color with a small ring around the top. The nose is citrusy hops, so much so its IPA like the moderate caramel malty backbone shows up after it warms. The flavor is pretty spot on with that nose, with the hops showing at first but then the bready caramel malts take over. Everything is pretty mellow, smooth with a touch of bitterness. Not a bad beer at all. slowrunner77 (11917) - Reno, Nevada, USA - OCT 18, 2014
"darker than most, with a slightly sweeter toffee/caramel thing going on before the slightly bitter finish. not bad, but not great. worth trying, especially if you’re an alaskan fan..." 6ROW (463) - corpus christi, Texas, USA - OCT 10, 2014

From bottle, pours a reddish amber with a big fluffy off-white head. Lots of fluffy lacing on the glass, too. Aroma is caramel and biscuit and floral hops. Taste is the same, moderately bitter, not particularly sweet, with a light bitter finish.
chinchill (4938) - South Carolina, USA - AUG 22, 2014
12 oz bottle consumed in Redwoods Park.
Red-amber; clear; very good tan head; excellent lacing.
Has a layered, appealing aroma that mixes sweet baked grains with herbal/floral hops.
Flavor: Given the aroma, there’s a rather bold hop note and lingering, moderately bitter aftertaste. Fruity and herbal.
Feel: Lively medium-high carbonation. Medium body.
O: bold and hoppy for style.

Beautiful to look at in the glass. Deep rust with a frothy head. In the mouth there is decent malt, but just a tad too much hops for me. sawbuck (724) - Round Lake, Illinois, USA - JUN 15, 2014
Aroma of sweet bread, and roasted malt. Nice copper amber with a tan head. Nice sweet, caramel malt up front. Notes of roasted malt, hints of toffee, and closes with a nice dry bitterness that blends perfectly with the malty begining. Finishes smooth. Nice example. joshmcg000 (388) - Iowa, USA - JUN 10, 2014
Pours slightly hazy amber with small amount of white head. Aroma is roast, toffee and caramel. Nice caramel toffee malt body with a little bit of sweet floral hops. Easy to drink and pretty good. Beerdrinker79 (2188) - Idaho, USA - MAY 25, 2014
12 oz bottle- Pours dark autumn amber with a two finger light tan head. Aroma is caramel malt, bright and citrusy which i wasn’t expecting. The taste is caramel malt, very ESB, dry finish. Not my style but not bad.
