Draft at Henry’s in Portland. Very rich brownish amber color, light off-white head that doesn’t hang around. Very fresh hops on the nose, and a little bit of caramel malt under them. The dominant note on the tongue is definitely the super-fresh, floral hops, though. Body’s a little thin, but balanced enough that the hop delivery mechanism is completely sound. One of the freshest, most plant-like, botanically-correct hop flavors I’ve had in a beer in a while. jcwattsrugger (12418) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - MAY 14, 2006
12 oz bottle-pours a foamy to rocky tan head with cloudy copper color. Aroma is sweet malt. Taste is caramel malt then medium hops. Dry and OK carbonation. sanmiguel (118) - Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2006
Bottled. Not bad, but was very grainy for my mouth. It also had a refreshing citrus flavor. Slight bitter finish. jonwayne4883 (401) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - APR 18, 2006
nice somewhat sweet flavor and great amber color. pleasant aroma, not too thick or thin, first speakeasy one we’ve tried, will try more Vac (2445) - San Diego, California, USA - APR 17, 2006
Pours with a Reddish-brown body topped by a medium thick ehad with some lacing. It’s slightly sweet and malty with a slight caramel note and a nice hoppy, piney note showing through. Medium bodied and smooth.

On draft at O’Briens. Arrived in the glass a beautiful, clear copper color with a small beige head. Aroma of toasty and caramel malts, balancing of floral and citrus hops. Nice crisp hop flavor upfront, citrus, lemon with a balancing malt backbone, toasty and light fruity malts, lemon peel in the finish. Light to medium body, with prickly carbonation.

On tap at the Rogue Public House in San Francisco. Pours dark amber with an off-white head. Serious cascade hop aroma. Ungodly thick head with dynamite lacing. Oddly, the hop flavor is medium and does not match the aroma. A very pleasant malty body and palate. Good beer. ericmc83 (207) - Arkansas, USA - MAR 29, 2006
Had this while I was on vacation in San Fran. I didn’t have a notebook with me so I’ll give it the average rating for now. Definitely not bad, though. KUEric (975) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 29, 2006
12 oz Bottle: Might have had a strange batch as the head came pouring out of the top of the bottle. The pour also had an explosive head. Another explosion was that of the aroma. A very floral, lemony, citrus aroma. Some undertones of caramel, malts, and hops. A great aroma. It also had an orange-brown-amber color beneath that head. The flavor is quite nice as well. A much stronger precense of hops than in the aroma. Flavor also consisted of some sweet caramel, some cool malts (a part of the mouthfeel), lemon, a touch of prunes and some floral fruity flavors as well, also felt there might have been some pine. A good flavor. Nothing too strong, dominant or impressive, but all very good flavors and in a nice balance.
