On tap at Old Market, pours a crystal clear amber with a small white head. Aroma brings out lots of resinous hops, some pine and toasted bready malt. Flavour is robust, with Belgian yeast, bready malt, some caramel and a wallop of resinous dry hopping. Long bitter finish that works pretty well. Nice stuff.

A: Opaque copper with a thin white head.
N: Substantial spruce and earth. Pineapple, grapefruit, biscuit, and even a hint of rapsberry.
T: Densely bitter - submerged leaves. Minor sweetness.
M: Medium body, very dense with lower carb levels.
O: a throwback brew, what I remember drinking a lot of when I first started my beer journey. maekchu (4069) - Hirakata, JAPAN - FEB 23, 2013
Draught at the Broadway Grill and Brewery in Portland. Walked into the place looking for some food, and had no idea that it was a brewpub and had never heard of Old Market. In a town with so many breweries I suppose that is to be expected. Anyway.... this beer has a good, moderate citrus aroma/ Light copper color, with a thin creamy head. Very hop-forward initial / more hops in mid, and then some balance takes hold / strong, dirty hop trails in the finish. Medium body. Some good mouthfeel/texture from hops. Perhaps too much hopping for the light O.G. Tastes much more like a hopped-up pale ale than an amber. Solid stuff.

On tap at OMP with Jeff. Pours a light amber with white foam. Smells of very floral hops. Tastes bitter and hoppy with hints of overly bitter strawberries and extra hops. kp (10880) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - NOV 7, 2009

For an IPA, not quite bitter, for an amber too much. Kind of a weird brew, but good nonetheless. BuckeyeBoy (8568) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 22, 2007
