Courtesy of markwise. Thanks Mark. 12oz can pours clear copper with near frothy tall light tan head. The aroma delivers earthy malts, some roasted malts and some resiny hops that have a floral component to them. The taste has a nice level of bitter to resiny hops as well as a touch of soapiness. The hops surface in the form of resiny pine and bitter floral hops. The hops and malts don’t come together all that great but it certainly attains a decent level of hop bitterness, so there’s that.

Thanks, brentfeesh. Tasted from 12oz can into tulip glass. Aroma was extreme citrusy and earthy hops, nothing else whatsoever. Flavor was one-dimensional hops too, entirely masking all malt and fermentation aspects. I have a feeling this is what it tastes like when you brew a high-IBU recipe with 100% whole hops (as opposed to hops pellets or extract), thus leaving mass quantities of dissolved vegetable matter in solution. I wanted to like this beer and brewery, but it was pretty bad. Hopefully it was just a bad batch, or expired or something. Obviously, many other raters loved it.

Real funky. Good aroma, but tastes off. Thanks Brentfeesch (by way of Seymour). Very hoppy, but not in a good way. "Its no bueno" says Nadya. No balance.

Can at a tasting at Max’s for Sam’s visit. Pours a hazy gold with a thin white head. Softly hoppy on the nose, light citrus and hops. Medium bodied, sweet caramel. Good strong bitterness on the finish, light warmth. Decent enough IPA.

Suttree (5143) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 2, 2012
Sampled at the 2012 East Nashville Beer festival. Cloudy orange, nice white head. Smells citrusy, smokey, a little grassy. Clean an crisp palate. Flavor is citrus and grassy hops, thin malts. Not fancy, but tasty.

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 28, 2012
12 oz. can. Pours a clear, dark, orange-amber body with a tall, lasting head of off-white froth. Lacing is incredibly dense and hard, coating the glass in a solid shroud of foam. The nose is based in lightly fruited bread and decently attenuated crystal malt. Hops suggest of apricot and sweet orange peel. Flavors are balanced, leaning slightly towards the malty side, showing decent fruit character but ultimately too much sweetness. The palate is substantive and smooth up front, with feathery carbonation and a moderately astringent, sticky finish. Decent, drinkable brew. Better than I expected, but I wasn’t expecting much.
