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...
Medium-bodied mouthfeel...
Easily downable...
Not bad...

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.
