Travlr (26946) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 2, 2009
Draught at Concordia in Portland. Odd muddy golden color, small white head. Floral aroma. Hops are immediately apparent, some background of light spice. Much hoppier than most winters. Good one.

3fourths (9380) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 29, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 13, 2013 Draft @ Double Mountain in Hood River. Cloudy rusty red colored body. Hugely dank cedar and fruit scented hops, tangy and spicy, reminds me of SN Celebration but ridiculously smooth, rich and decadent. Amazingly fresh, vibrant and delicious. Chewy rich and tangy up front, with maple and sharp cedar in the finish. Damn.

On tap at concordia. was anxious to try this, as others had raved a bit on it. Kind of disappointing. citrus hop aroma, distant caramel. cloudy amber-amber. quickly attacking the tongue with hops and wierd texture. hop flavor approaching hashness, grapefruit rind,

Tap at Belmont Station... Poured hazy amber with a very thin off-white head. Aroma of buttery, sugary malt with a burst of hops. Foamy and dry palate. Flavors of caramel and bread-like malt, and then what really showed through was the bitter hops that dominated all the way through the finish.

beerbrat99 (132) - Shanghai, CHINA - DEC 11, 2007
Draft at Concordia Ale House. Nice copper/light amber hue with pretty good clarity for being unfiltered. Wonderful hop nose with notes of pine and grapefruit. Medium body with nice malt complexity and a slightly tart and spicy finish. A tasty treat!

Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 7, 2007
On tap at the super cool Bailey’s Taproom in Portland--Poured a burnished golden-copper with slight amber tinge. Ultra-floral hops nose. This is my kind of beer! Sticky malts supported and balanced the piny, fruit piquancy from the balmy lupulin character. This beer is wonderful!

beerinmarch (2830) - Washington, USA - DEC 6, 2007
On tap at the 2007 Holiday Ale Festival. One of the best beers I had at the fest. Very floral nose, citrusy and almost tropical fruit notes. Warm malt base, caramel, citrus candy, pear, and earthy, almost oak flavors. Very crisp in the finish, easy to drink.
