Draft at the production facility out on the south side of town. Pours a cloudy dark brownish amber with a loose and sudsy off-white head. Big toasty nose, tasty cheerios and husky grain notes along with toasty herbal hops. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Toasty, nutty mid palate with light malt sweetness, playing against a piney, resiny hop charge. Dryish toasty finish. Solid beer, but definitely seems more suited to autumn than to warm muggy spring days in the river valley. Reid (2541) - Salem, Oregon, USA - MAR 6, 2015
Pint glass poured from a growler from "B2 Taphouse" in Salem OR
Pours a darker amber coloured body with a large creamy thick light tan head.
Nice treacle toffee type malt aromas and a slight earthy hop. Nice.
Smooth balanced taste..but far from boring..lots going on and it finished pleasantly bitter dark chocolate.
LIke the mouth feel on this its thick yet rolls across the tongue with ease.
Overall a nice Amber albeit on the strong side.
NOTE..according to the board this is 6.7% .

Keg at the taproom, Corvalis, 10/11/14.
Clear amber with a decent beige covering.
Nose is earthy hop, mineral rinse, pine, bitter orange, caramel.
Taste comprises red grapefruit, light spice, caramel malt, earthy minerals.
Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close.
Solid stuff but this is a cross between a hoppy red or an American Strong.
Come to England and find me an English Strong that packs this much hop presence, if you find one I’ll buy you a pickled egg!!!

Tap at Block 15. Pours clear orange with off-white head. Aroma is very citrusy, oranges, grapefruit, sweet caramel, tropical fruits. Taste is medium-bodied, medium carbonation. Overall, good. raphael (1254) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUN 6, 2014
Roasty, bitter red (they’re calling it a "red" now) w/ a little lemon. Aromas of toffee, resin & black pepper. MrChopin (4304) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - APR 27, 2014
sepia with puffy cream head. diacetyl dominate nose, light pumpernickel dusty wheat. Flavor softer, doughy crust up front with light grass and roast mid, darker dense grains, some, tea and toast finish with light residual sugar balancing. Full and coating, lightly chalky, a solid effort once the diacetyl nose blows off. pdx76 (651) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 22, 2014
On draught at block 15 - pours clear amber with medium thick head. Nose of faint hop and malt. Taste is a pleasant blend of hop, malt, and grain. Sweet and dry finish.

Poured from tap to glass. Nice amber hue with fizzy white head that lingered. Aroma is citrus, orange, caramel, honey, tangerine. Mouthfeel is decent with a lighter body and soft carbonation. Taste is dry with a clean bitter finish. Overall this is a decent brew.
