Dogbrick (8650) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Sample at Rattle N Hum. This brew pours a muddy orange color with a medium frothy white head that recedes gradually. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, pine and malt. Full-bodied with flavors of resiny hops, malt and fruit. The finish is malty up front with a lingering piney aftertaste. Above average overall.

Ferris (4959) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 21, 2014
Draft - Vintage 2008 - Vinous, sweet caramel and some oak. Cloudy orange with a rich head. Cotton candy, caramel malts, hoppy bitterness and a slight boozy burn. Great aroma, but for the age still a bit edgy.
