On tap at St. Augustine’s. Pours a hazy copper with a tan head. Aroms is caramel, candied citruses. Taste is not very rich surprisingly, sweet with citrusy notes and hoppy bitterness. Malty, hoppy bitterness aftertaste. Good one though.

Murky amber beer, bubbly cream colour head. Palate is light and mildly crisp. Dry thin caramel malts and a trace of milky sweetness. Bitter floral hops, getting harsh. Very mild citrus. Light crisp finish brings a fair bit of hop spice. Clunky but serviceable DIPA.

tmoreau (3703) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 15, 2015
Shared swing topped liter bottle poured to snifters, showing a cloudy, orangey amber color, with a fair layer of off white head foam, and spotty lacing. The aroma was pit & dried fruit, with a bit of follow up citrus, and a touch of caramel sweetness. Ditto on the taste, with a pronounced and lingering, citrus and rind-like hop bitterness. Medium bodied, with good carbonation, and some noticeable alcohol. Not overwhelming, but a decent DIPA.

Darker than expected for an IPA. Very little head. Aroma is if caramel and toffee. Flavour is initially light toffee notes but finishes with grapefruit. It is slightly more bitter than tart but the flavour is well balanced.

TBone (16159) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 3, 2015
Tap at Mission Dolores, Brooklyn. Amber color, good white head, lace. Fruity, even berryish aroma. Medium-bodied. Flavor has quite amount of warming alcohol, piney bitterness. Highlight of this beer is in the aftertaste which is long and grapefruity.

johnnnniee (3782) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Bottle from Redstone. Big caramel maltiness, earthy and light citrus hop barely cuts through the malt sweetness. English inspired I assume, decent drinker.

Drake (11781) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 3, 2015
Bottle shared at a tasting. Pours orange with big chunks, large frothy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of caramel, toffee, citrus, tropical fruit. The taste is bitter astringent hops and pale malt. Medium bodied, off balance and kind of all over the place.
