A crazy hopped brew pouring a solid lasting head leaving behind a classic lace. Sasquatch says the aroma is "vitalizing". "Curls my nose hairs". Full nectar with superb carbonation creating a chewy mouthful of softness. Beautifully balanced with malty thickness offset by choppy hoppiness. This brew is a meal. The finish is bittered better than well delivering a hop heads anticipation. This stuff is so drinkable. Highly recommended. Angeloregon (2055) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 6, 2008
Tasted at the Brewery in Vista, CA--Rich amber body with a bold, frothy whitish head. Floral hop aroma. More floral than bitter. Well built. One of the best beers to date! hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - MAY 3, 2008
listed as an amber @ papago. pours a very rich looking dark amber with a frothy head. it leaves behind lots of sheet-y lacing. initial aroma of fresh green hops... leads to lots of pnw hoppiness, pine, grass, grapefruit, chocolate and some caramel. it’s hard to taste anything but hops and caramel at first as the bitterness destroys my palate. as it warms though, it begins to sweeten and show some grapefruit pith, berries, soap/floral and some alcohol. nice dry bitter pine hop finish which lingers. medium body, smooth mouth feel and vibrant carbonation. this would be a decent ipa... weird amber, though.

Draught at the Speakeasy. Pours a hazy amber with a small white head. Nose is hoppy with a bit of roast. Flavor is over the top bitter, and not in a good way. Waxy and dirty is the only way I can describe it. Caramel malt backbone was also seriously lacking, especially for a APA or even a "hoppy amber" as this beer was described to me by the bartender. Made it very hard to drink and I didn’t finish my glass which is very rare for me, especially at a bar. TeamTrappist (832) - jericho, New York, USA - APR 27, 2008
Growler from Big Z beverages. This poured a reddish brown with a thin white head. Nice floral hop nose and flavor with a touch of sweetness. But it is nicely balanced with a good bitter finish. This would be a good session beer, and a good every day beer.

Draught Hazy amber beer with mossy shine under a small yellow ring. C-hops, rainwater nose; bit of a dark candi sugar aroma? Bitter with a chocolate impression, greenery, dark leaves. A bit light in MF, slightly slick. Good, but discreet red ale. sheatripper (863) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - APR 7, 2008
UPDATED: MAY 18, 2008 Bierkraft growler. Deep red/copper color with a frothy off-white head. Big floral hop aroma defined by cascades--essence of orange and dark brewed tea. Clean full malts infused with a prominent hoppy bitterness--tea, mint, orange, with a smooth resin finish. Medium body. Very nice study of PNW hops in a well executed west coast ale.

On tap at Bulldog. Nice reddish-orange color. Fresh hop aroma with a touch of caramel and strawberries that i get with so many reds. Mouth is very balanced with some caramel upfront and then hops hit the back of the throat. Subtle bitter finish. Very nice. MinetoKuroda (12) - Nihombashi Chuo-ku, JAPAN - MAR 10, 2008
On tap. almost knocked out with direct fresh hop aroma itself. good body thickness to balance and accept hop‘s dance.I felt very comfortable as if I saw green flash.

On-tap at Stone 2/11/08. Pours reddish brown with a moderate white head, decent lace. Smells of sweet red fruit up front, then sweet hoppy, then malty. Tastes just the same as it smells. Medium body, active carbonation.
