DocLock (8798) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 19, 2012
Draft at Capone’s. Poured dark brown with tan head. Nose was black patent roasty malt, resiny hops, rye. Tasted patent malty, with a big piney and citric hop presence, and some piney roastiness in the finish.

Slipstream (2278) - USA - JAN 16, 2012
On tap at Capone’s. Black pour with a persistent little head. Aroma of roast malt and hops. Unlike other Fosters I have come across, this one is full flavored, with lots of hops and toasted grains. It is hard to believe this is a wheat ale. It is spicy, citrusy, with perfume-like aromas that come thru as it warms. Really good.

alobar (3210) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Pours black with no head. Aroma of wheat, chocolate, roasted malt, and pine. Roasted malt and chocolate flavor with pine, and resin ending. Really nice beer.

michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 13, 2012
Draught at Capone’s: Aroma of malt, pine, hops, resin, rye, slight citrus, and a hint of roasting. Poured very dark brown/black in color with a large, creamy, dense, brown head that diminished a little, but lasted throughout. Opaque. Sparkling. Good lacing. Flavor is lightly sweet and light to medium bitter. Tastes of malt, pine, resin, rye, marijuana, and a hint of caramel. Medium body. Dry texture. Average carbonation. Malt, hop, pine, resin, rye finish is dry.

**Note: This is a different recipe in 2012- no rye, straight wheat black IPA** Draught at the Farmhouse in Burlington; big thanks to my main man sflpunk for putting this on tap! Nearly black pour, smallish creamy but bubbly head. Nose holds a beautiful combination of dark evergreen notes (spruce and hemlock tips), orange rind, and good toasty malt and wheaty bread presence. Flavor brings more great west coast pine sap, excellent grassy bitterness, roasted malt, and beautiful smoothness on the palate, though also very very effervescent. Not the most complex of their beers, but the simplicity and forward flavors fit so wondrously with this brew. Excellent.

jmm635 (957) - Havertown, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2012
Poured dark brown with a khaki colored head. Piney hops hit me first, followed by roasted malts and chocolate, with noticeable spicy rye. Like a really well-hopped porter. Lingering finish. Very enjoyable!

This one is better then James. A total hop bomb with a background of rye and chocolate. FInish is very bitter but still quite tasty.
