GT2 (8742) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAY 11, 2013
750mL. Clear tea amber pour with yeast floaties. Weak head formation. Nose is nutty, hoppy, mild maple, dark cherry, prune. Taste is again quite hoppy for style, even piney, mild maple, orange candies. A bit medicinal with spruce, pine, orange cough syrup. Not cloying or sticky, quite the hop bomb for style. More in the imperial red category than Old Ale.

Bottle shared by Noodleuser: pours a clear dark copper amber with a spotty-lacing white head. Has a fresh resiny hoppy nose with lightly sweet biscuity malty notes. Starts with pretty good fullness and sweet dark caramel notes with a smooth grassy hoppy bitterness before a drier bittersweet finish.

Sammy (8947) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2013
Really not the style, still an enjoyable ale. Bottle from Capone’s. Big lace. Hoppy ale, with signs of dry hopping. A sweet finish and a nice palate cleaner.

Thanks to Sammy. Pours orangy brown with chunks of sediment. Some creamy top and lacing. Initial smell a little empty but aroma afterwards has malt, some hops. Finishes light bitter. Medium thick consistency. Bottle.
