American strong ale or winter beer? Probably more the strong ale although the label suggests more of a winter. It's very good whatever although the extreme bitterness does get a little bit in the way in the Finish. Quick3Beers (1601) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 12, 2018
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2018 1,500th rating! Pours a nice copper from a can, fair amount of lacing. Big spicy hop flavor was rather surprising until I read the description of the amount of hops in there. Nice citrus notes over a fair malt backbone, not too sweet, prefer it to a lot of IIPAs. Good beer. vulcanmeister (309) - La Grande, Oregon, USA - DEC 23, 2017
Poured on tap at Tap That in La Grande. Beautiful dark whiskey appearance with abundant carbonation and small but long lasting creamy white head. I get pine, sweet carmel, and citrus in the aroma. Very pleasant. The body is full medium. Taste is momentary pause before hops hit, a bit salty, sweetness from malt, a nice slowly evolving finish that hints of biscuit, brown sugar, and hops. The pine lightly whispers all the way to the end of the ride. A Good winter ale. castellano42 (17) - - DEC 18, 2017
UPDATED: DEC 18, 2017 This is a delicous winter ale, that I wish was sold year round. Perfect balance of flavors. blipp (10183) - La Mesa, California, USA - NOV 17, 2017
Draft. Pours orange with an off white head. Toasted and lightly sweet malts, some floral hop bitterness, faint citrus, and a light toasted malty finish. Solid.

Quite hoppy, could easily pass as an ipa, no winter spice to it or anything. Decent beer, well made.Hopworks portland
