750ml bottle from Peabody’s in Boone, NC. Some malt but piney but full aroma. Pours copper orange with a nice white foam with great lacing. Taste is huge, hops explode, with a hint of malt and a alcohol burn mixed in but in full flavor. The palate is piney but not over top. A great beer and I will pick this up again for sure.

No date on the bottle, so I can only assume it is fresh and will be rating it as such. Yellow-orange pour with a white head. The aroma has some biscuit malt and grass but also a strong note of cooked vegetables. The flavor is a bit better. I get some orange and light pine notes as well as some biscuit malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Definitely seems past its prime, but with no date on the bottle I can’t say for sure.

Bottle thanks to scotchzi. Wow. Pours pretty clear orangeish/gold. Smell is super fresh juicy pineapple, and citrus. Taste is fresh grapefruit core, floral hops, pineapple, citrus, malty base, and underlying earthy notes at the end. Very balanced. Bold flavors but not overpowering.

bubbleflubber (1832) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - JAN 26, 2014
Pours a nice amber into the glass, with a fluffy white head that leaves ring soap lacing. Very hoppy nose, with fresh peppered grassiness. Flavors boast a bold malt contingency, alcohol notes, peppering pine and resins to finish. A well-balanced brew, providing a chewy mouthfeel and a thick, full body that slathers the tongue. Green Man knows how to put out some world class brews in these micro-batch special releases. Just great!

Bottle @ Bobby’s house, shared by Sam. Golden orange pour with a white head. Nice big pineapple aroma. Lots of citrus peel, pine, and grass. A touch on the sweet side with plenty of caramel. Big bitterness to the flavor, but also quite sweet. Pine, resin, grass, and citrus peel. Decent pineapple notes. Kind of muddled, otherwise good.

From bomber. Pours an attractively clear dark amber. Aroma says HOPS. Complex - no single hop shines through, but the combination is tasty. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ReggieDunlap (3076) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2013
Pours a slightly hazy gold with a medium white head. Aroma has loads of fresh hop notes...so green and citrusy/spicy...simcoe all over. Flavor is so fresh! Pine, grass, fresh greenery, faint citrus...light hoppy spice...mild herbal notes. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is dry and herbal/piney. Awesome.
