Dickinsonbeer (5074) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 13, 2006
Pours chilled as a murky dull orange with a nice fluffy sticky white head with great lace. Aroma is a bit dirty and yeasty, but lot sof american hops like cent and cascade- citrus, light pine, and earthy tones. Good bitter ho flavor with orangey citrus, pine, sticky pine sap, yeast, dirty sweet malts, and more dirt and earth. Carbonation was a bit high as well. Perhaps a bit old since this was pbviously made for the summer 06 release and it is now winter, but I wasnt as impressed as I thought I would be.

Tap: Amber, nice head and lacing. Nose of bright citrusy hops, clean and earthy, light pine, nice hoppy flavor, balanced and full bodied. Ends a bit brash but it’s a sweet and bitter bash. Nice.

Yulesmith Holiday ale (Blue and red) Pours a foggy orange brown with a heavy carbonation that leaves a thick tan head that is frothy like whipped cream. The aroma is strong citrus hops, caramel, plums, pitted overipened fruit. the taste is strong bitter rind citrus upfront juicy and strong. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, again highly carbonated loaded with delicious bitter spicy hops. This is a great beer fantastic and hopalicious.

Hoppy aroma with some floral aspects. The beer pours out a deep golden brown color with a medium tan head. The palate is very full and coats your mouth. Tons of big hop flavor right up front gives way to a huge malt bill.

Deilcious beer. Rather sweet, but with the necessary amont of hoppyness to create an unbelieveably balanced package. This beer is highly recommended.

22 oz bottle courtesy of Craig. Pours a golden coppery color with a thick foamy beige head. Aroma is west coast piney with hints of sweet malt and plenty of hops. Taste is piney sweet with butterscotch and floral overtones and a hint of sweet malt. Excellent overall and nearly identical to the Alesmith Yulesmith Winter IPA.

Radek Kliber (7165) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - DEC 3, 2006
Bright copper amber ale, medium white head. (4- ) Lovely strong hoppy nose. Powerful, sure but this is clean work. Sweet malts do balance this act. Light woody touches and brown malts followed. (7+) Initial cookie dough, aromatic, spice, vanilla. Then fruity short lasting hop touch, citric orange peel follows. Warming ale that is not shy to be bold.

Ty5592 (1018) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 2, 2006
Thanks to footbalm for the bottle. Apricot orange in color with small lacing type head. Smells citrusy like oranges, melons, and apricots. Nice firm body with a smooth mouthful. The flavor was a citus hop explosion that lingers. As this beer warms alcohol is detected, but it’s minimal. Well balanced and lush, this is a wonderful brew.

This is a very good beer that I very much enojoyed. Tons of hops in the beer, almost a hit of earthiness. Yeah a strong malt body to it, not thin at all. I would highly recommend this beer
