DandyWolfFloyd (983) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2016
Aroma - caramel malt, with stone fruit, and some mild citrus. Appearance - burnt orange body color, with fine sediment. The head is off-white and about 1 1/2". the head is frothy and settles very slowly. Taste - caramel malt, with interestingly subdued Pacific Northwest hops. Superb balance. Stonefruits and some light grapefruit. Palate - light body, thin feel, flat carbonation, and abrupt fruity finish.

That1Guy (2181) - Colorado, USA - DEC 24, 2015
12 oz bottle with a date code 00-23-2015. Not sure if that’s the date it was bottled or an enjoy by date. Either way, this is oxidized as hell. All cardboard and the caramel sweetness of hop death. Not enjoyable.

DrSilverworm (9672) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 16, 2015
12oz bottle, thanks to phaleslu/shrubber85. Dated 9-10-2105. Hazy red amber orange color. Thin khaki head. Decent retention and good ridge of lace. Spicy, kind of earthy, but stale hop. Some toasty malt, mild caramel. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, kind of astringent. Medium to bigger body. Kind of slick texture. Lighter kind of crisp carbonation, mild roughness to it. Tastes a bit older for sure. Seems like this was once an impressively hoppy & big amber, but right now it just tastes stale and rough. Didn’t finish.
