Cloudy amber color with small head. Fruity caramel aroma, hoppy but a bit old, light sweat. Bold, full bodied, with moderately sweet malt and caramel flavor; strong bitterness, still some hop resins and fruitiness.
I would really like to try it fresh.
Deep bronze. Thin head. Thick sweet fruity hop character, balanced, moderate bitterness.

22 oz. bottle, split with manuchampions, pours a cloudy copper / amber with a small white head. Very herbal hop aroma with secondary characteristics of grass, grapefruit and caramel. Flavour of surprisingly complex hop flavours, lots of spicy notes and potent hemp. Absolutely fantastic. jtclockwork (16439) - , New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2013

Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours light amber with a large foamy beige head. Aroma is heavily floral over light caramel. Flavor is piney/citrus/floral with pine seeming to come on predominately. Certainly true to the NW traditions of hop/hop/hop. Nice long smooth bitter finish. Excellent. Ferris (15003) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 23, 2012
