mjg74 (2910) - La Mesa, California, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Canned. Pours a hazy golden/orange color. Huge head. A bit too much carbonation. Some sediment floating about. Sugary sweetness with a strong hoppy aroma. Well hopped. Spiced hoppiness up front. Some maltiness with a hint of sweetness. The excessive carbonation hurts.

Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 30, 2013
Draft at Standard in Portland, OR on 1 June 2013. Poured a slightly hazy amber with a thin, but dense white head. Aroma of floral hops, pine and tropical fruit. Grapefruit hop flavours with bready notes and some caramel sweetness. Nicely balanced bitter finish of hop resin and grains.

ABUSEDGOAT (2419) - California, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Hazy amber color, moderate head, decent lace/retention. I successfully predicted a few of the hop aromas here - cascade and centennial. Grapefruit, citrus, pine, big and fruity sweet hop aroma with moderate caramel. Medium bodied, moderate bitterness, a little too sweet for my tastes but really nice flavors here.

beersearcher (2382) - Glendale, California, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Pours a dark orange with yellow hues to it. Flavor is quite juicy and wet but no one particular fruit leaps to mind. Aroma is peppery and pine. Some of that underlies the flavor as well.

Bottle. Amber with a semi creamy off white head. Semi-tropical hops with a bitter bite, some biscuit. Moderate carbonation and bodym dry finish, becomes more tasty.

UDBeernut (2315) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - JAN 21, 2015
Six pack of cans picked up from the Amaco by my hotel. Once the can is opened, some foam comes out the top. Donít worry moní itís no infected. Could not tell u what it looks like since it was enjoyed in can form. Nose has light resin. Taste is balanced, maybe a small fraction to the bitter side. Some malt sweetness prevails, resin. Medium body. Well done.
