Served on tap at O'brien's TION night in a 10oz taster.
An interesting named pub beer, very light as a follow-up to Pliney the Younger. The British influence is definitely there - I mean, I tried this without knowing what it was and thought it was an IPA mixed with a British ale. Color is light orange/yellow, big white head, sweet malt, smooth and very drinkable (and low abv compared to many IPAs), but nothing too memorable.

Enjoyed this as fresh as it can get, at the Russian River Brewing Co. in Santa Rosa. I love taking field trips...
It is light orange color and produced a nice head. The aromas are what is most interesting about this beer. Immediately I am struck by a smell that I have never experienced in a beer before - Blue Cheese. I am convinced it is not a flaw, it is the subtle combination of the malts, hops and yeast that created the slight blue cheese-like character that actually enhanced this beer. Imagine a nice hamburger with melted blue cheese on top, or even a cheese platter and crackers with this one, a perfect pair.
Flavors are good, slightly sweet malts and a little high on the alcohol, but all-in-all not a bad beer. I definitely would like to hear if anyone else got the same aromas as I did.

On tap at O'Brien's today.
Pours a dark clear copper. minimal thin white foam cap from the bartenders pour. Smell is grainy and earthy, in a hop sorta way. Taste has a nice and smooth combination of earthy hops and mild crystal grains. A perfectly good session beer. I've never been a fan of this style but found it amazingly drinkable if in the right mood. Nothing to complain about in the carbonation department.

On-tap at the Memphis Tap-Room in Philadelphia...
Basically, a super-hopped English Pale Ale...
A well-done depiction of the style...
Previously never heard of this brew before...
Copper/amber hue, nice head and lacing...
Rich malts and amber grains on the nose...
Well-balanced between malts and hops with bread and butter nuances and slight caramel...

Growler purchased from the brewery. Reviewed from notes.
A: Pours a clear pale amber color with a thin off-white head that faded to a lasting collar.
S: Fragrant hops on the nose, floral and lightly fruity, with undertones of bready malts.
T: Follows the nose with flavors of bready crackery malts with the hops taking a back seat. I get notes of light pine and a bit of mineral water. Flavors are quick with almost no aftertaste. An extremely mellow beer.
M: Medium body, slick and clean mouthfeel with light carbonation. Light bitterness in the finish.
O: I thought the nose was way different than the mouth. A very light and quaffable beer, albeit light and a bit boring.
