3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at the release party at the Moon and Sixpence. Nice orange pour with about an inch of off-white foam capping it. Smells of toffee malt mainly, with a bit of nuttiness and some definite spicy earth hop notes as well. Flavor profile is also heavily toffee malt, very nicely balanced with earthy/spicy hops and also a little nuttiness in the flavor as well. An interesting beer, but I enjoyed it. Had multiple pints actually.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Had this on tap recently at Bailey’s Taproom in Portland, OR. Colour... translucent golden-apricot with no head. Nose... grassy, lightly hoppy and husky. Palate... lightly bitter, kind of fruity and floral like jasmine flowers, hay and cut grass. I dunno.... seems more pale ale-ish than IPA-like. Rather one dimensional.

Tap @ Belmont Station... Poured orange with an off-white head. Aroma of toffee malts and crisp, earthy hops. Wonderfully smooth, caramel malt flavors, and light ginger like spices and musky hop flavors that lent to a light lemon, tea-like quality. I’m not too into the British style (ingredients and all) beers), I’m a big west coast pale ale guy, but Double Mountain did this justice. I think it’s their house yeast, which does so many wonders to their beers.
