San Diego Strong Ale Fest 2010. Clear amber color/ white head. grassy, spicy hop aromas with caramel. medium bodied. Nice caramel, pine sap, floral, spicy flavors. Yet another tasty hoppy brew from these guys. pdx77 (1483) - Oregon, USA - NOV 11, 2012
On draught at Hopworks. 2012 vintage. A very floral hoppiness with a clear citrus aftertaste. scrizzz (2223) - Bothell, Washington, USA - DEC 20, 2010
English Double IPA?? Shouldn’t this be one part English and one part American? Alas. Clear copper, small white head, earthy leafy hoppy aroma. Big and earthy with the hops, not really what I would call pine, more of a dried leafy and gritty abrasive punch. Good times. bhensonb (15235) - Woodland, California, USA - FEB 26, 2012
Bomber from Malt & Vine. Pours hazy orange amber with a creamy/bubbly beige head. Aromas of light stone fruit and something herb/floral. Med+ body. Flavor is sort of Belgian. Medium stone fruit, yeast/spice, citrus/earthy hop. It has a lingering low level of maltiness in the finish, but there’s enough spice and bitter to put that in place. Rather mouthsmacking.

22 oz. bottle- Pours very hefe style hazy with a one finger head that reduces to a collar and a few islands. Aroma is very tropically, fruity, passion fruit and mango especially. Taste has the fruitiness, but is drier than expected, very mellow bitterness, fresh tasting, zesty. Body is medium, carbonation is kind of low. Overall interesting beer. The bottle says it is an IPA, but this site says American strong ale, which is it? I would go with an IPA, way too light and refreshing to be an American strong ale.

Draft at San Diego Strong Ale Fest 2010. Slightly hazy golden pour, white head. Citrus, a little bit earthy, grapefruit, hops, and bready malt. Decent. trevor211 (1681) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 22, 2011
Great caramel color. Serious citrus hops on the nose, balanced (almost) with caramel malts. Far more malt in the flavor, and a tasty effort... but this is making me realize their hop varieties are just too acerbic. mcberko (17854) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 4, 2011
22 oz. bottle, split several ways, pours a cloudy orange amber with a small beige head. Aroma of dry caramel malt, dry citrus hops and a hint of dried fruits. Flavour is both strong on the malts and hops, with a decent amount of sweetness, sweet / tangy tropical fruits, finishing on the fruit notes and some bitter, hoppy orange peel. Solid, if unspectacular strong ale. Theydon_Bois (19541) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 22, 2012
Tap at Hopworks Bike Bar, Portland - 07/11/12. (I recorded this @6% but nothing to back this up on the web).
Lightly hazed golden with a very thin head.
Nose is hops, floral tones, caramel malts.
Taste is pine, hops, bitter grapefruit.
Medium bodied, smooth on the palate, bitter finish.
Decent enough. Blairgus (4613) - California, USA - DEC 25, 2012
25 dec 2012, bottle. Yellow, clear, steady bubbles. Nose is pine needles. Thin body and moderately fizzy. Kind of oily, pine hops. Nice enough.
