good. i have a few in the category that i choose over this one and that are easier to obtain but i would most certainly drink more of this. theisti (4157) - Kansas, USA - JUN 26, 2007
22 oz. bottle from Bottleworks in Seattle. Pour is reddish brown with a normal off white head. Aroma is resinous grassy hops and earthy malts. Taste is initially resinous hops but move to malt in the middle and finish with pine hoppiness. There is some dry / sweet fruitiness (dates, sweet raisins) in their as well. Nice brew. beisen (90) - California, USA - JUN 23, 2007
Pours caremel reddish with short head. Strong malty chocolate flavor with nice hops. Slightly astringent, but altogether vey drinkable. I’ll have this one again. RagallachMC (631) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - JUN 21, 2007
22oz bottle. Aroma: Big hop nose with notes of pine, citrus, and resin. Malt comes through more as it warms with notes of caramel, bread, and chocolate. Appearance: Dark reddish brown in color and opaque. Medium beige head was full and foamy with good retention. Nice lacing. Flavor: Roasted malt with notes of caramel, dark fruits, and bread. Hops come on strong with pine and resin, and a good citrus note. Medium-high bitterness leads to a medium-sweet finish. Palate: Medium bodied. Medium carbonation. Overall: Loved the play of malt vs. hops. Hops are the focus, but doesn’t overbalance. ABUSEDGOAT (2790) - California, USA - JUN 21, 2007
Dark amber, large rocky head with good lacing and retention. Aroma is strong PNW hops (grapefruit mostly) with some chococaramel malts. Medium to full body, fairly predictable hopping, but the malts made this somewhat interesting. No matter what, it’s well made and enjoyable.

22 oz bottle. Pours dark copper color with off white head. Strong citrus hoppy aroma. Taste of malt, hops, hops and more hops with bitter after taste. BlondeBeerBunE (12) - Lodi, California, USA - JUN 13, 2007
Full bodied with the some of the best flavors. I like the way it looks in a tall glass, the color is beautiful. First taste and I was hooked. ultraspank (867) - Alverca, Lisboa, PORTUGAL - JUN 13, 2007
Nose of flowers, pine, pine, pine and pine. How about an Evergreen Mountainside? Pours cola brown with ruby amber highlights. The lovely cascade produces a tight creamy bone head that is mostly lasting and leaves lace like spiderwebbing. The flavor is consistantly bitter with moderate acidity. The huge roasted and bitter floral finish is impressive. The thick body is creamy and soft. The finish feels dry. Bear Republic has emerged as another serious player in the world of microbrewing. kmeves (1098) - Mount Pleasant, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 11, 2007
Dark ruby red color with lasting tan frothy head with lacing. Big citrus hop/caramel malt aroma. Flavor is nutty malt and big full, well-developed hops. Heavily bodied, finishes more on the sweet side. Kind of a Scottish/American Amber Ale mix. dkoonce (911) - People’s Republic of Athens, Ohio, USA - JUN 10, 2007
From Alefest in Columbus Ohio. Brown, with a thin creamy tan head and a medium body. Smooth and smoky. A very drinkable beer for a strong ale.
