Pours a clear golden colour with sizable white head that dissipates to a small white covering that laces the glass quite nicely. Aromas are pine, citrus, sweet malt. Flavors are grapefruit, pine, medium bitterness, bit of malty sweetness. Overall a very smooth flavorful beer.

Suttree (6013) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 5, 2016
Man, what a trainwreck of a name there. Also, it was a messy gusher. Smells crackery, toasty with a touch of pine. Taste is piney hops and toasty malts.

Bottle from SB 160702. Slightly hazy golden amber body with a longlasting creamy off-white head. Distinct fruity aroma with citrus, tropical fruits and all that goes with New world hops. Also malt and bread. Palate with nice bitterness with tropical fruits, orange peels, resins. Good! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

77ships (7440) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 28, 2016
Sampled draft @ Tilburgs Bierfestival 2016. Hazy orange, only a few bubbles, looks a bit flat. Very oily hop oil nose, bathroom esoteric oil & perfume, caramel, sugar. Taste is weird tea & hop oil, tea, bland oily with sugar,.. Flat hop oil & bit too big sugar. Not really into it.
