Bottle shared by kkipple. Thanks Dan! The beer appears light yellow and quite hazy. The head is a quarter inch thick and leaves a few random traces of lacing on the glass. The aroma is very floral, with some citrus and spice notes. The flavor follows suit, with a slight musty, funky presence. The feel is medium bodied with a hop bitterness that lingers in the finish. This was a decent beer. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 01-29-2011

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Bottle:   Caramel in color, thin sudsy white head, sparce lacing.   Musty aroma, pale caramel.   Dry on the tongue, a little tart.   Better than I expected in that it seems somewhat Belgian.   Finishes a little grassy, a little mild caramel sweetness.   Only thing I will say is it could use some carbonation as its a little flat on the tongue.   Otherwise fairly good.   Its also warming, not alcoholic, but warming.   Thanks for the bottle Bill!

onceblind (7313) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 29, 2011
GABF 2011. Listed as "Pale Rider". Murky dark gold, no head. Aroma of floral and spicy hops with a funky barn yeast atop some toffee malt. Big yeasty dough flavors with spicy saaz hops. Pretty big bodied but the flavor is just imbalanced towards spicy herbal hops.

DietPepsican (1586) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - JUL 27, 2011
Thanks to SS for this one! Golden pour with a huge white head. Aroma is caramel, oranges, and peppery spice. Flavor is fat with the black pepper, plenty of belgian yeast notes being thrown off as well. Finish was dry with snappy carbonation.

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 12, 2010
A: The pour is excessively carbonated with a head that nearly fills the glass. The actual beer is a cloudy orange color. S: Initially the extreme carbonation overwhelms the nose and it sort of stings the nose. After some intense swirling to kill the carbonation a bit, I get a lot of nice fruity notes like pineapple and mango. There’s plenty of yeast in there as well as some bread and grassy hops. T: The flavor is really quite nice. Lots of pineapple, orange, and tangerine fruitiness to go along with a solid bready malt base. Floral and grassy hops provide a mild bitterness. There are some very subtle spice flavors and a good yeastiness. Perhaps a touch of alcohol as well. M: The body is medium with a very high carbonation, which I knew would be the case. D: This was a really surprising beer. I found it to be just great and really enjoyable. It would be nice if they dialed back the carbonation, but the flavor and nose were good.
