hopscotch (9518) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2010
Draft… RBSG/MBGSF… Clear amber ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Excellent retention. The bouquet is a symphony of tropical, citrus and fuzzy fruits. Full-bodied and velvety with tingly carbonation. The big flavor leans on the bitter side of balance, but has a substantial malt backbone. In line with the aroma, there is an abundance of tropical and fuzzy fruit bitterness. Moderately bitter, tongue-numbing finish.

Tmoney99 (11070) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 12, 2010
RBSG 2010. Poured clear copper color with a large frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy earth, sour citrus hop and small malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium to long duration. My expectations where exceeded.

12 oz. bottle; thanks to deyholla for the trade; dark copper with trace white head; nose of tropical fruits, mango and a touch of butter; a little garlic too that has been popping up so much lately to me in IPA’s/DIPA’s; raw, sticky, stale oranges; very dry and resiny bitterness; dry, stale lemons and orangy hops; pretty damn good overall

The finish has light-moderate lemon and grapefruit. Medium bodied with creamy carbonation and mouthfeel.
