adnielsen (10138) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 1, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up at Wilbur’s Fort Collins during Anheuser-Bush night. Pours a clear, rust orange appearance with a big, cream colored head. Fairly malty, caramel, light toffee, a touch herbal, fairly earthy aroma. Somewhat richly sweet burnt caramel malty, fairly sweet, earthy Fuggles hoppy flavor. Light fruitiness. Overall, not my favorite but not as bad as I expected.

DrSilverworm (8707) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 18, 2013
12oz bottle, shared by Dave. Thin off-white head. Couple bits of lace. Kind of a flat english malt flavor. Caramel malts, little grassy hop. Smooth, lighter carbonation. Kind of crisp texture. More dry in the finish. Light bitter taste. Alright IPA, better than expected

DocLock (8601) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2013
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours clear copper with 2-finger off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, noble hops, a bit vegetal. Tastes noble hoppy, tart, somewhat dry, bittter, and has an odd tasting acidic metallic bitter finish. This one is sub par.

BVery (8065) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - SEP 17, 2013
Bottle. Kind of a rich orange pour with a small foamy white head - not bad looking. Lots of caramel with some cardboard in the aroma - ugg. Nose is hoppier than the taste. Note a great brew here.

Ibrew2or3 (7511) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAY 10, 2013
12oz bottle pours with a crystal clear copper body and gold edges supporting a thin white head. The aroma offers up some biscuit like malts, a faint whiff of fruity esters, earthy minerals and a hop note maybe (well, somehow I’m not sure I’m smelling any hops). The taste, at times, seems like a hopped up standard Bass Ale with mineral notes, a light roasted maltiness, biscuit malts and before the expected Bass Ale sweetness kicks in this one gets bitter with pine hops to pine nuanced grapefruit citrus hops. The sweeter malty side of this beer brings back memories of beer drinking in the early 90’s but this is also bringing a pleasing hoppiness too. Cool experience.

alexsdad06 (7107) - Ohio, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Bottle shared by Dave. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a small white head. The aroma has sweet malt, caramel, some fruit character,and a hint of hops. The flavor is more malt forward, caramel, mild fruits, toasted, grassy and a touch of earth. This was just ok.

b3shine (6762) - Indiana, USA - MAY 16, 2013
Bottle to snifter. Looks solid; a transparent brownish-orange with thin off-white lacing. Smells sweet and hoppy. Tastes like it smells, but blander, with an average (at best) mouthfeel. Meh.
