Prufrockstar (679) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Bottle thanks to jtclockwork. Pours clearish orange with white head, irregular lacing. Aroma: candied citrus (orange zest), resinous with caramel underpinning. Taste is moderately sweet with a rather bitter finish that lasts and lasts, but never seems to overcome the initial sweetness. Medium body, prickly carbonation.

Foxbush (1215) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 28, 2014
22 oz bottle The D/IPA pours a cloudy light amber with a small head and no lacing. The ale a light resin ,citrus aroma. The taste was more complex with fruity pine and light bitterness. The high ABV was deceptive. This is a wonderful balance D/IPA with a warm bitterness from beginning to end. The medium body ale had soft carbonation. The smooth finish had lingering citrus bitterness that stayed in the upper mouth.

Leighton (9833) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2014
Draft at Barley’s during RBWG Opening Dinner - Asheville. Pours clear gold with a soft, white foam head. A heavy DIPA, just a bit much. Some present alcohol, rindy citrus, grass, pine. Full bodied with fine to average carbonation. Warming finish, obvious alcohol, aggressive bitterness. Meh.

dmac (3742) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - FEB 19, 2014
Draft at RBWG meet & greet. Poured a good looking solid deep orange with a creamy average sized bright white head. Fuller body with stronger carbonation and a lingering creamy aftertaste. Aroma and flavor of old citrus, dough, wet toast, grassy hops. This is either way too balanced or a bit old.
