COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This big, bold copper-colored ale showcases Munich & Crystal malts to create a big supportive body on which we layer our favorite Washington hops. Chinook & Cascade provide citrus and piney flavors, while Northern Brewer adds a hint of mint. Dry-hopping with Cascade and Columbus increases the beers hoppy aromas. Malt, hops and yeast-derived fruitiness combine to create our most complex offering.

Fatehunter (2341) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - JAN 16, 2014
Pours two and half fingers on a clear dark straw colored body. The aroma is spicy with some lemon and a little earthy. The taste is moderate pine and lemon bitterness backed up by a big malt bill. It finishes with a long pine bitter note. The texture is crisp with moderate carbonation. Quite enjoyable.

Very nice ... Piney, resin aroma with a solid malt backbone, resin hop flavor and a good, not over powering bite to the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Jabah (416) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - AUG 4, 2016
Sampled the last of the 4-pack on National IPA Day. This grew on me with each sample. Bought on clearance for about a buck each, then sat around for a few months, so the aroma and flavor may be weighed down a bit. Still has that bold hoppy west coast flavor. Heavier on the malt...maybe some rye added too for extra sweetness. A hazy dark mahogany appearance. Piney aroma. Kind of forgettable, yet still a solid brew.

Hazy brown pour with a large off-white head and lots of lacing. Aroma and taste is malty, biscuit, some caramel. Slightly bitter, big malty backbone. medium full mouthfeel.

Bottle in Seaside, OR. Nice copper body with slight head. Nose is floral, fruity. Taste of fruits, grapefruit, caramel and hops of course. Nice and bitter in the finish. Good one.

cmacklin (921) - Lethbridge, Alberta, CANADA - JUL 3, 2016
On tap. Pours a hazy copper with a thin, off-white head that leaves spotty lacing. Sweet, pungent aroma of grapefruit, caramel malt and pine. Sweet flavour of grapefruit, tropical fruit, caramel malt, pine and grass with a dry, bitter, hop resin finish. Medium body with an oily texture and average carbonation. Nice, very aggressive.

doesnt seem to be the freshest, but still ok. Light floral and minty hops, moderate bitterness and a firm malt backbone, caramel and bread.

teamsale (213) - Washington, USA - JUN 15, 2016
Bottle. Pours a clear red copper with a one finger beige head and minimal lacing. Smells of rust, pine, fruit. Taste is of black coffee and is malt heavy. Bitterness hits hard and lasts. Aftertaste is the best part of this one, when the actual flavors show through best.

4oz taster @ VCBW 2016-Day 1. Creamy entry, good balance of malt and hops. Clean finish with not too harsh bitterness. Some pine as well.
