Eh. This is pretty heavily roasted and has a strong hop flavor, but just isnít that tasty. Mademir through but not a repurchase. Seems to be a curr3nt theme with Like. Okay but nothing great.

Pike XXXXX Stout - Gingerbread
Winter Beer Fest 2016, Seattle. Intense ginger snap aroma. Small tan foam. Really spicy ginger nose. Red hot candies, base beer is mostly lost. Tons of hot, fresh wet ginger. Odd, rather big.

Pike Doubble Hopulus
Bomber pours a hazy copper with a one finger sand head and good lacing. Aroma is a nice pear and other tree fruit. Taste is awesome, ideal sweetness, simple flavors. Bitterness is a perfect mild to medium and the aftertaste is a short-lived sweet fig flavor. Really impressive!

Pike Old Bawdy
Bomber, 2012 vintage. Caramel malt aroma with notes of peaty smoke, dark fruit and grassy and floral hops. Pours cloudy caramel colored with a thin tan head that has little retention or lacing. Starts with caramel malt and dark fruit flavors with peaty smoke notes. Finishes dry with grassy and floral hops as well as light citrus hops. Pretty good barleywine.

Pike Space Needle Golden IPA
650ml bottle pours a golden orange color with a finger and a half of white head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is pine and grapefruit with some floral notes. Taste is a grapefruit and pine hop bitterness with a light fruity and malty sweetness. Light to medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, a hop forward IPA that is quite tasty. Recommended.

This gets worse as it goes along. Smells nicely of grass and molasses, with a nice similar first flavor. However, it gets sweeter the deeper in the bottle get, which, for a 2-year old bottle isnít great. Maybe itíll mellow out even more as it gets older, but I was hoping for a bit more here.

Vigorously carbonated, lumnous copper brew with a resilient head fed by constantly rising bubbles. Delightfully spicy honeyed nose that melds wonderfully with grains smelling like fresh wort. A touch of spring flowers adds an enchanting note. Wet honeyed body with the consistent spicy notes and some tannin at the back of the palate. Seems rather thin for a honey-based beer, would benefit from some more body. Some spicy herbal notes through the finish

Taster at brewpub. Ugh. Thick, sweet, cloying. Not nice. Baked beans in there somewhere. Some breweries shouldnít bother trying Belgian. Stick to the IPA please.

Taster at brewpub. Pours deep deep tan, brown head. Smells of cark chocolate and smoke and coffee. Good initial hit of burnt malt and coffee, but itís a little thin for the abv. Very drinkable for a strong beer. Decent.

Taster at brewpub. Pours orange/gold. Thick head, good carbonation. Lovely dry hoppy aroma with some malt. Clean, dry taste with some sweetness in the back. For an APA itís better and more flavoursome than some of their IPAs. Nice.

Orange with a white head. Sweet citrus, light malt, a bit tropical. Finish is more bitter than I expected. A healthy crisp bit with some malt to soften it a touch. Excessively drinkable. Great pub ale.

Draft at the Taproom, Bangkok. Poured a hazy medium amber with a frothy white head and some clingy lace. The aroma is malt, light hop bitter, some citrus. The flavour is moderate to light bitter with a watery light crisp, light fruit, light hop bitter palate. Medium to light bodied with average carbonation. Way too light all around and with little flavour.

Pike IPA
Draft pour pint at The Collective, Woodinville. Listed as IPA 207, whatever they are trying to tell us there, it seems obvious, but it could be anything I suppose. A toasty malt aroma and flavor. Sweet, and slightly warming for an IPA. Subtle lingering bitterness. Caramel heavy, nice cool hop bitterness finish. Tasty

Pike Pale
Bomber from Total Wine, Gainesville. Pours amber brown with a small dusting of a beige head. Aroma of honey, fall leaves, slight fruits. Flavor is nutty leaves, light fruitiness, a little citrusy but thatís quickly taken over by the roasted malt. Totally drinkable, but not out of this world.

Pike Old Bawdy
It pours cloudy medium brown with a tinge of orange and a light brown head. The aroma has plenty of sweet malt with bread and caramel. It also has aroma of plums and floral elements. It also has hints of citrus that is orange like. The malt is predominant with a balance between the esters and hops in the background. The malt flavors are sweet with the hop balance being somewhat aggressive with a moderate alcohol element in the taste. It has bread and caramel malt richness in the flavors with floral hops and citrus that in orange like. There are also hints of plums and the alcohol does has a hint of whiskey element in it as well. It has a chewy body with moderately high alcohol warming that is a slight tinge hot, but not unpleasant. It is somewhat dry and the floral hops and dryness linger on the palate. Overall, this is a malt forward barley wine that is moderately hop aggressive as the beer warms.

Flavor is honey water, floral hops, bread crumbs, grasses, light citrus. Minus the honey sweetness this is tasty... just needs a little less of the sugary sweetness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
