Birdiebeagle (958) - Perkasie, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2006
Bottle Pours a murky amber with a good fizzy off white head. Lasts fairly well and has better than average lacing. The aroma is a wonderful mix of malts and hops. Has good chocolate, carmel malts and nice pine and grapefruit hops. The real pleasure is when it hits your mouth. Has a great carbonation with a medium body. Wonderful flavors for both the malt and hops. An excellent durationand an even better ending, no strong aftertaste but just enough to keep you hoping you don’t run out. Finish has the perfect amount of bitterness. This is IMHO the best beer I have had. The great people at Ale Smith must distribute east immediately.

martin00sr (2701) - Haderslev, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2016
Cloudy amber, thick offwhite head. Fruity and caramely aroma, some pine too. Smells pretty fresh. Flavour has caramel and woody pine. Starts off creamy, then turns bitter and dry, just barely shy of being too rough. Warming alcohol bite and good balance. I like it.

Panzuriel (1922) - Westerville, Ohio, USA - AUG 25, 2016
Appearance: Hazy medium copper. Finger of white tiny bubbles leaving good lace. Nose: sweeter medium candy malts. Aspects of pine, citrus and tropical fruit. Taste: sweet medium malts, citrus, tropical fruit and touch of pine. Honey. Body: Medium with good texture. Decent carbonation. Parting thoughts: a very solid DIPA. Hoppy, yet sweet with a good alcohol hit.

FROTHINGSLOSH (6643) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Sampled on draft at 3R6P this beer poured a cloudy peach color with a medium sized fluffy white head that lingered and left good lacing. The aroma was sweet pine, lemon and tropical fruit. The flavor was sweet and tangy with cactus, pine, lemon, pineapple and mango. Long finish that turned a bit dry. Moderately full bodied. Ok.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a tulip. Slightly hazy orange-gold with a frothy white head. Lots of lacing the glass. Great aromas of grapefruit and pine. Medium to heavy bitter, full body. Lively carbonation and a long, bitter finish.
