sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 3, 2009
Growler courtesy of a couple of drunken idiots that brought it back for me, they know who they are: Pours a clear copper with an off white head. Aroma, strong citrus hops with some earthy notes, sweetness and a good bit of booze to it. Flavor, sweet caramels, and doughy notes, big citrus hops, floral notes, but a distinct boozy kick to it. Itís solid, with a really nice hop flavor to it, just too boozy to really be great.

On tap at Buckeye Beer Engine. Copper/amber pour with a medium off-white head. Citrus hop aroma with a sweet malt balance. Citrus and pine hop flavor with some sweet malt on the back end. A tad more sweetness than your normal IIPA. Similar to 90 min.

egajdzis (5196) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 7, 2009
[Cask @ Beer Engine] Poured a lightly hazy amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, sticky caramel malts, floral hops, ripe citrus fruits, and toasted malt. Taste of resiny pine, citrus fruits, grapefruit, marijuana, and lightly alcoholic finish.

hopson (635) - Williamsville, New York, USA - MAY 5, 2009
on tap at the buckeye- a treat for certain- the best beer I had sampled at buckeye- huge, huge piney aroma, and the accompanying hop flavor was on full display- the sweetness supported the hops big time, and cut down on any bitterness- this finished quite nicely.
