On tap at Henrys in Portland. A sweet hoppy nose. The flavor is caramel and sweet hops. A bit big and hot. Green, very malty. Lingering soapy bitterness. TheRealMGD (555) - Lakewood, Washington, USA - DEC 24, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 18, 2012 Cask @ Red Hot. Hazy burnt orange pour with a short off-white head leaving heavy lace and having good retention. Nose is tropical fruit and pine, with some roasty malt. Medium-heavy body and light carbonation Medium-roast malt, pine and tropical fruit, and a bit of ethanol bitterness. Finish is medium, sweet and bitter. I think this might be hotter and more bitter out of a keg based on my previous tastings - seek it out on cask cmonster (1000) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 1, 2011
Growler served in a tulip. Deep amber-brown in color, syrupy dense looking body, with a large, fluffy orange-white head. Great retention and lacing. Bomb. Aroma is fruity orange citrus, pine, toffee, earth, and caramel. Full-medium body. Sweet attack, followed by a hit of carbonation, a creamy texture, rolling layers of robust hops with heavy malt undertones, and a piney bitter finish. Excellent brew. savnac (2391) - Anchorage, Alaska, USA - JUN 24, 2011
On tap @ Henry’s Tavern, Portland. Hazy amber/copper with a beige head. Aroma is light biscuit and caramel with faint citrus and pine. Flavor is lots of sweet malt and lots of bitterness, alcohol pretty well hidden. Medium body with mild carbonation and a sugary mouth feel. I think this could have been a bit old but still decent. neepsntatties (2028) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 26, 2011
Jeepers! I can’t recall how many times I’ve had this ale and didn’t rate it! "For shame, doc! Shootin’ rabbit’s wit’ an elephant gun!". Colour... cloudy yellow-gold with a fairly thick head. Nose... imagine a cross between orchard fruits and hop cones and there you have it! Palate... lemon compote, peach cobbler and apricot Turkish Delight followed by a massive wave of sweetly-dry pineapple rind and sugar sirop. Yum, yum!

Orange notes rise from the glass with faint lemon peel. Clear copper pour with thin slightly off white head. Caramel malts start but are nicely blended with citrus hop flavor. Bitterness is very smooth. Hardly any alcohol to be found. Medium heavy body. Good DIPA - the sweetness up front is cleaned up pleasently by the bitterness. mcberko (18557) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 3, 2010
On tap at TCBF, pours hazy golden with a white head. Aroma and flavour of strong piney hops, dried fruits (apricot, orange and peach), with a strong hop punch in the finish. Most wonderful. Nalu (217) - Washington, USA - SEP 14, 2010
Tap @ Brouwer’s Cafe. Clear amber pour with a minimal white head leaving a heavy lace. Fruity/flowery/grassy nose leading into a hoppy middle balanced between bitter and flavor, all supported by a heavy body. The malt is well-integrated and tastes of honey, cocoa and possibly apple - couldn’t quite place all the elements but they were very welcome! Very impressed with my first WM, a visit to their pub is a must! concretebeer (17) - Washington, USA - JUL 27, 2010
Tasted on tap at Walking Man. A great imperial IPA. Not overpowering in the hops or alcohol taste. Just a splendid mix of bittering and flavoring hops. DYCSoccer17 (3705) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 25, 2010
16 ounce sample on tap at Henry’s Tavern in Portland, OR. Aroma has a fair amount of grassiness with some piney, earthy notes present. Kind of metallic and a bit sweet. Moderately hazy light amber body with a foamy off-white head and good lacing. Starts with earthy hoppiness with some grassy notes present. Becomes a little sweet with some husky tannins. Finishes with some grapefruity citrus hop flavors. Mild ethanol and pretty dry. Becomes too dry and harsh later on.
