phaleslu (9017) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2011
330 ml bottle from Wine and Cheese Place. Pours a murky, dull golden brown color with an overactive, massive off-white head that gushes a bit out of the bottle and eventually settles into an uneven cap with heavy lace in the glass. Aroma of citrusy hops, with both orange and grapefruit, some spicy and floral notes, caramel malts, dry grains, and leaves. Flavor of pineapple, mango, grapefruit, floral hops, caramel malts, pine resin, and booze. Medium-bodied, with an oily, juicy mouthfeel that coats the palate. Medium carbonation. Interesting take on a DIPA.

cryptobard (281) - DENMARK - SEP 18, 2011
From the bottle. Powerful aroma of grapes. Flavor was similarly dominated by grapes, with hops and citrus beneath. Finished fairly long. I remember feeling very refreshed after drinking it.

marcus (8698) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 7, 2011
Bottle from Star Grocery, Berkeley. Pours copper with a huge beige head that doesn’t stop growing for a while and a sweet toffee aroma. I waited and waited and finally drank the head. It was pretty tastym but a bit airy as you might expect. Eventually, I reached the liquid. It was rather worth waiting for and turned out to be a fairly well-balanced brew with a nice caramel malt flavor and a smooth more bitter finish.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 6, 2011
12oz. Bottle (at 10.5%ABV per the Bottle): Aroma of hops, malt, light caramel, and some wood. Poured deep amber/brown in color with a massive, half-glass, foamy, loose at the bottom, but creamy and dense at the top, frothy, tan/beige head that greatly diminished but lasted throughout. Hazy. Sparkling. Excellent lacing. Flavor is medium sweet and lightly bitter. Tastes of malt, hops, wood, light caramel, and some resin. Medium body. Lightly dry texture. Average carbonation. Malt, caramel, wood, resin finish is lightly dry. 10.5%ABV is completely hidden throughout.

Strykzone (6222) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 2, 2011
11.2 oz. bottle from TWCP. A huge light tan head slowly collapses. It sits on an opaque mid brown beer. A bit toffee nose that also has plenty of hops that are floral and pine. The first sip is big complex fruit. Passion, grapes, and citrus are represented. The hops are dry and bitter with bready malt and some wood. The mouth feel is prickly. Alcohol is well hidden. The finish was tart and bitter and still had wonderful complexity. This beer is bold and aggressive. It is also all over the place and offers some surprises.

Camons (9404) - Hasselager, DENMARK - AUG 23, 2011
Bottle @ Home. Pours dark amber / burnt orange with a huge creamy offwhite head. Aroma of bready malt, caramel, fruity hops, peach, grapefruit, grapes. Taste is bready malt, caramel, wood, grapes, both sweet and bitter hops, peach, oranges, grapefruit, vinery notes. Full body, soft carbonation, dry and bitter finish. Different, and very good. 230811

bhensonb (13616) - Woodland, California, USA - AUG 22, 2011
Bottle from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours darkly orange amber with a huge foamy/creamy off-white head. Lots of floral and maybe citrus hop. Full bodied. Foamy carb. Very hoppy over some softly roasted lush caramel. Weird that. Then the hop turns fresh non-citrus non- berry fruity. The whole beer is just a lush experience. Brilliant.

Ratman197 (12686) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - AUG 21, 2011
Bottle courtesy of Doodler (thanks Scott) poured a clear amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of biscuit, earthinous, vinous notes, citrus, oak and light vanilla. Palate was light bodied and crisp. Flavors of biscuit, citrus, light earthiness, light oak and a hint of chardonnay with a crisp lingering bitter finish.

PorterPounder (6980) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 7, 2011
drowland shared a bottle of this with me...thanks! Very pungent baby diaper and cat urine aroma...but in a good way. Dark copper pour with an omnipresent sticky khaki colored head. Flavor has a definite sweetness to it with some mushy kids cereal (think Fruity Pebbles), a hint of the chardonnay that it was aged in. Some citrus bitterness makes its way in the back end. Mouthfeel is nice and sticky.
