mcberko (14682) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 2, 2012
12 oz. can, pours a murky orange / brown with a small white head. Aroma of caramel, citrus hops and some unpleasant cloying maple syrup - uh-oh. Flavour is quite musty, with herbal hops, some syrup notes, caramel / toffee, finishing on a hoppy sweet note. The warmer it gets, the more herbal and nastily sweet this becomes. Quite repulsive, really.

bhensonb (14172) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 10, 2012
Can from Malt & Vine. Pours copper with a slight beige head. Nice aroma of resin over lightly roast caramel. Med body. Flavor is sweetish roast caramel with some citrus and resin. Even a bit floral. Itís not harsh. Itís not NWestish. But itís pretty tasty. Loaded with hop. I think itís somewhat underrated.

Ferris (12927) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 31, 2014
Bottle - Skunky hops with a bit of grass and a light malt sweetness. Pale gold with a bubbly white head. Resin, bitterness and a candy like sweetness. A decent IIPA, doesnít have the body or malts to really back it up though.

Dogbrick (11621) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 9, 2009
Bottle at Freakiní Frog in Las Vegas. The beer pours a hazy orange-amber color with a medium and foamy light beige head that recedes steadily. Stringy lacing on the glass. Floral hops aroma with a malty and citrusy undertone. Medium body with a moderately hoppy character that is mostly citrusy and has malt and sweet fruit behind it. The finish is hoppy with a lingering bitter aftertaste. Pretty good effort overall.

crossovert (11424) - Illinois, USA - MAR 31, 2014
355ml can near 50F. Lgiht gold pour, huge head that is annoyingly easily-formed. The aroma is mostly cascade hops, pine, resin, and a huge amount of taosted malt scent. The flavor bring some hops, medium to low bitterness, some \ fruit and pine, I would say msotly cascades, very classic flavor. This honestly isnít that bad. It just has a totally different delivery it is still dry yet malty, nice bitterness, butlacks a tropical fruit punch and aroma , just an old-school dipa. Was expecting much worse.
