On tap at Cascade, pours a clear blonde with a large white head. Aroma is almost nonexistent, with some dry hopping in the background. Flavour is fairy bland but more exciting than the nose, with notes of light piney hops and dry bready malts. Not much to this, but it’s dry and highly drinkable. Good stuff.

Tap at the Raccoon Lodge. Pours gold with a white head. Aroma has lots of citrus and fruit. Pine? Near med body. Flavor is citrus hoppy with something like a caramel wheat tinged combo. It’s light. but hoppy. Moderately bitter finish. Nice drink.

jercraigs (10303) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 8, 2010
2010-06-26. Crisp golden body, nice foamy white head and lace. 3+ Lovely citrus aroma, intense grapefruit at first fades to a nice modest lemon and orange character. 8+ Flavour also has a very pleasant citrus character but more more mildly so than in the aroma, bitterness is surprisingly mild, and is actually borderline sweet at times, but gets more bitter as it goes on. 7+ Average but very smooth palate. Nice! On Tap at Raccoon Lodge, Portland.

Overheard at the bar:
"For a strip joint Mary’s doesn’t have bad beer!"
"...you don’t have to worry about other guys getting skeezy... like jacking off in front of your woman..."
"I wouldn’t dance naked for $1! For the whole song!!!"

Draught at the Barrel House. Cloudy orange-bronze with a lacy head. Great grapefruit nose, some passion fruit. Sweet honeyed fruit salad flavor, peach, grapefruit, mango. Soft, oily, full body. Good stuff. A bit too thick.

[2955-20100626] Tap. Fresh bready yeast aroma has mild citrus notes. Clear, orange brown body with a medium-lasting foamy white head. Bitter bready yeast flavour is quite hoppy and has a long citrus peel zest aftertaste. Medium bitter body. Interesting, great bitter.

On tap at the Barrel House. Pours a clear copper color, almost yellow, a medium white head. A fruity honey nose with some earthiness. The flavor is lemons, a Pils malt like earthy malt profile, a medium bitter bite, very earthy/grainy. Finishes earthy and some bitterness. Pretty good.

Draft at special brews. Pours a hazy burnished medium amber with a loose white head. Spotty lace. Mild tangy orange and caramel nose. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Oranges and a bit of pineapple on the mid palate, followed by some toast and caramel. Mild crisp resiny finish.

BuckeyeBoy (7534) - Boise, Idaho, USA - AUG 10, 2009
On tap at Raccoon Lodge Portland, Pours out a copper topped with a white head. Aroma rings of fresh hops floral and sweetness. Taste was long lasting bitterness on the citrus hops. A nice malt to help as the hops try to take over. Another tast one from the Lodge.

riversideAK (6260) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - AUG 7, 2010
Lock this motherfucker in ho! Nice nose of grapefruit, floral, and a good deal of piney hops. Malt base is lightly sweet and there for a nice balance. Pours bright golden amber, great frothy creamy head and wonderfully sticky sheets of lace. A great looking beer. First flavors are of floral and citrusy hops, light malt sweetness, a little grain base, big piney finish. Malt base provides nice balance, solidly easy to drink, quenching even, nice dry resins too. A really nice NW IPA.
