Hazy amber color. Very nice aroma of fruity hops. Good caramel flavor, malt, quite dry in the beginning; strong bitterness with some bitter orange fruitiness. Very good.

Tap at Hopworks Bike Bar, Portland - 07/11/12. Clear mid amber with a thin off white head that clears to the edges. Pale malt nose, light pine, some hops. Tastes of caramel malt, pine, hops, light grapefruit tones. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, bitter finish. Above average, drinkable but nothing special.

Oakes (17132) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 26, 2011
Golden-amber. Earthy, caramellly with lots of earthy, piney hops. Earthy and piney on the palate as well. Slightly strong-tasting (boozy) winter ale, but for the most part has nice balanced and is quite clean.

yngwie (16989) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 16, 2016
On tap at Kick. An unclear, almost murky orangey brown beer with an off-white head. Sourish, caramel malty aroma with a nice spiced touch. Cellar hints, pine cones and a touch of alcohol. Its full bodied, lightly warming and nicely carbonated, rather dry, with caramel, prunes, some cellar, a pleasant spice touch and piney, bitter hops. Lasting sourish, malty aroma with pine cones, bitterness and some warming alcohol. Not a summer beer, thats for sure, but its a fine brew indeed. Pleasant combo of sourness, bitterness and malts. 160716

mcberko (16927) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 13, 2010
22 oz. bottle, pours amber with an off-white head. Nose is full of hops, also with bready malts / cereal, citrus and potent floral notes. Flavour is full of floral notes and citrusy hops, with a bit of fruitiness. Long lingering citrus and hoppy finish. Low in complexity and the body is not overly dense, though quite decent.
