bhensonb (10736) - Woodland, California, USA - APR 4, 2012
Bomber from Bruisin’ Ales. Pours clear dark copper with a creamy/foamy beige head that’s trying to ring lace. Aroma of arguably citrus hop over somewhat toasted caramel - almost a brown sugar sensation. Med body. Flavor is citrus hop plus maybe a bit of veg - then there’s arguable caramel followed by a brown sugar bit. Not sticky, it just makes me think this stuff wanted to be a barley wine. Interesting version. Finishes nice and bitter.

Leighton (10512) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 17, 2014
Draft at the brewery taproom during RBWG 2014 - Asheville. Pours clear gold with a creamy, white cap. Decent IPA marked by floral hops, sweet bread and pine. Good balance. Light-medium in body with average carbonation. Lightly sweet on the finish with fine resin, grass and ripening orange. Nice enough.

Lubiere (9765) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 5, 2011
An amber IPA with a thin creamy off white head. In aroma, light British hops, over biscuitty malt, so-so. In mouth, a nice sweet caramel malt with sweet resinous floral hops, a bit light but nice. On tap at Twin City Brewfest, August 13 2011.

On tap @ French Broad. Pours a clear golden orange appearance with a white head. Orange pledge, pine, sweet nose. A bit goopy. Fairly high sweetness and bitterness. Wrong, sticky mouth feel. Citrus. OK.
