Sampled at GABF 2011. Pours an amberish orang with a small white head. Aroma has a lot of citrus and floral notes. Unfortunately, the flavor is cardboard and mild hops. Kind of flabby on the tongue. Oxidized for sure. Hard to put even my total 1 oz. pour back. This is sad because the aroma hinted at great things for this beer. I will re-rated if I get a better sample of this beer. This was very cool to try, though.

The last two guys to rate this on here are some of my best friends, and top beer nerds, but Itís like were drinking a different beer. Maybe because itís a winter seasonal and Iím drinking it on July... Pours like your average corporate beer, with perhaps a little more color and lacing. It doesnít smell good or bad, thereís almost no aroma at all. Palate is flat as well, I didnít get much hops, a little sugar maybe, but it basically tastes like a flat english beer to me. I donít like flat english beer. Finishes clean, so thereís that, but thatís about it.

UPDATED: JUN 27, 2011 Bottle from ben4321 - my first Arkansas tick! Pours an orange cloudy haze, light head. Aroma is citrus, light floral. Citrus and hop up front on taste, medium bitterness, then some floral on the finish. Medium body, long finish from the hops. A solid example of the DIPA style, and apparently it is not only just available on draft, as I poured myself one out of a bottle.

ben4321 (3846) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 6, 2011
Location: 12 oz bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 6/6/11

Aroma: The nose is fairly citrusy, orange notes, a bit of candied sugar, and floral hop notes
Appearance: It pours a pretty much clear orange color with a frothy beige head and some lace
Flavor: The taste is fairly sweet for the style, orange candy sweetness, citrus and floral hops
Palate: The body is medium (plus), and it kind of coats the mouth with a lasting, cloying feel to it
Overall Impression: I guess ye ole description could use an update, as this one is available in 12 oz bottles (I would know as I am currently drinking one). Anyway, this was actually rather solid. Considering that this is one of the (very) few breweries in a beer-lacking state, I wasnít really expecting much from them, but so far their stuff has not been too bad. Iíll keeping drinking Diamond Bear brews when Iím in town.

From the bottle at SAVOR 2011. Pours a clear golden color with an average white head. A slight amount of lacing as it goes down before setting into a thin collar. The nose was really grainy with some slight citrus and floral hops in the background. Similarly, the taste was just overrun with grainy malt and bordered on being tannic. Body was medium and dry with some slight bitterness in the finish. I wasnít a big fan. Serving type: bottle

The Dan Journal #442. Tasted 2/6/11. Growler from the Brewpub. Filtered with a dark golden hue. Off-white bubbled head. Aromas of mild grapefruit and olives. Medium bodied and off and oddly bitter. Sulfurous and mild. It gets better as it opens up and comes to room temperature. Bright grapefruity flavors. Decent yet mild. Drinkable yet tame.

Strykzone (4897) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2011
Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. Pretty much a classic beer. Grapefruit and caramel. Some nice fruit. Alcohol is not noted. A nice IIPA. Wish I would have taken better notes on this one.

Braudog (5623) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Bottle. Light amber color, but the beer delivers a huge floral aroma and flavor component. Bit bitter, but the floral perfume is predominate. Big DIPA, but not overpowering. (#4046, 12/16/2010)

Growler thanks to barzigkin. The smell is citrus, pine, caramel, hops, and fruits. The look is clear, golden in color, with a light beige head. The taste is hops, pine, slight fruits, and decent bitterness.

(Growler, courtesy of BarZigKin) Pours a clear amber-orange body with a medium off-white head. Aroma of grass, orange, herbs, and grain. Flavor of caramel, grass, pine, florals, and resin with a dry, somewhat bitter finish.
