wedgie9 (1893) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 16, 2013
Tasted on 4/15/13 from a 12oz twist-cap bottle purchased at Grand Cru. Pours hazy orange with a thick white head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is a nice blend of caramelized orange peel, honey, a touch of caramel, citrus, and resin hops. The flavor is the same, with the caramelized orange peel the main focus and all of the bitter hops notes balancing the sweet notes. The body is medium with average carbonation and a long resin hops and caramelized orange peel finish. This is a solid pale ale.

GTAEgeek (1206) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 20, 2013
12 oz. bottle. Pours a pale, hazy wheat color, with a big, fluffy, white head. Thick, clumpy lacing all over the glass. The aroma is biscuit dough, pine, hard cheese, and dirt. Very bitter flavor, with a little bit of malt sweetness. Medium body, sticky, slightly rocky and a little carbonation, Overall, this is a good, hop-forward pale ale.

Cybercat (3282) - Georgia, USA - FEB 13, 2013
Robust aroma is quite hoppy with a citrus undertone that is equal parts grapefruit and Mandarin orange. Pours a nice clear golden with a fairly thick and rather persistent ivory head that "pillows" just a bit. Hoppy flavor has a malty and slightly sweet undertone, plus more than a hint of citrus. Is this a "regular" pale ale or an IPA? Smooth, firm texture has quite a bit of fizz and sass, leaving a hoppy and fruity finish. I look forward to trying more brews from Petes/Krebs. Viva Oklahoma!

Solid beer--lots of carbonation; nice kick. Easy to drink despite the elevated ABV. Not as good as the Spring IPA, but at least Choc finally has a year-round beer for us hop heads.

AmEricanbrew (5800) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - DEC 26, 2012

Jabic (421) - Brigantine, New Jersey, USA - NOV 18, 2012
Ar: Candied orange and lime, some light caramel. Ap: Murky orange, small off white head with good retention and a thin cap of lacing. T: Bright orange and lemon with a high and rough bitterness - sweet toasted malt and light caramel - some acidic sourness lurking in the background - harsh, pretty dirty finish, quite metallic. P: Medium body with high carbonation - medium-dry finish. O: This beer seems like it could be quite good, but the bitterness is just unpleasant, with some very rough edges and a metallic finish, and it seems like an infection is creeping up.

Surprisingly not bad. Nice hoppy aroma. A darker golden amber color than expected with average head. Nice balanced taste with some malt sweetness followed by a hops bitterness. This thing actually had some character. Very easy to drink with food.
