Tallahassee, Fl - World Market - 12 oz can. Pours a medium golden with nice bubble action, a sticky show white head and thick rings of lacing. Strong resiny fresh spruce aroma, touch of spearmint. Flavor has plenty of sticky hop citrusy bitterness, a touch of maple syrup sweetness, a hint of spearmint. Mouthfeel has a nice stickiness to it. Fades just a bit in the finish, but overall pretty solid.

This is my kind of IIPA, great. Hoppy but not over the top bitterness. I would love to try this fresh. Next time I’m in Las Vegas I need to find this on tap.

Thanks to sebletitje! 355 ml. can split by 4. Hazy orange, small white head. Nose is bitter orange, pine resin rather malty with some marmalade. Taste is milky yeast, bread, bitter pine resin, some sugary sweetness, marmalade, bitter dry finish with chewy malt body & a bit too much yeast. Quite nice & decent. A bit surprised by the very low score on here. Nothing special but quite satisfactory all the same.

I was surprised to see this beer for sale in Texas. The beer pours a orange-amber color with a white head. The aroma is a strong mix of orange and caramel malts. This smells a lot like a hoppy barleywine. The flavor is very similar with some spices in addition to the caramel oranges. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Not sure when this beer was brewed but it appears to have faded into barleywine territory. Still, it was not a bad drink.

Twelve ounce bottle from Food N Fermentation. This pours hazed coppery with a decent fluffy beige head. A big caramel aroma with fruit and pine. An interesting earthiness too. This beer has a huge malt profile with citrus and pine hops a little behind. I taste some bready yeast. It has plenty of sweetness and maybe a little too much. A decent brew.

(12oz bottle thanks to Mora2000) clearish amber with off-white bubbles. Nose of sweet bread, maple, grass, and honey. Taste of grass, lightly bitter grapefruit, with an oily body and lightly bitter palate finish.

Caramel aroma sugary sweet w notes of citrus and floral hops. Very sweet aroma. Pours amber nice clarity good head lasting lace. Flavors of caramel iced tea moderate to low citrus and floral hops. Sweet finish. Light lingering citrus. Not my favorite too sweet for my taste but not flawed and well put together.

Suttree (5689) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUN 30, 2013
Geez, what a mess. Bright yellow. Smells nicely hoppy. Taste is really just a big boozy mess. Overly sweet mixed with harsh bitterness and a lot of alcohol. Ugh.

Can. Pours a slightly hazy copper body with a one finger frothy off-white head that had amazing retention. Tons of sticky clingy lacing. The nose is smelling pretty darn sweet, but there’s also a big burly citrusy and resiny hoppiness that keeps it in balance pretty well. The caramel and crystal malt sweetness seems to indicate that this might be a little too sweet for my tastes. The flavor is actually not all that sweet though, the bitter resiny hops really dominate and scrub away the caramel sweetness. Long, lingering bitter finish with a little bit of an alcohol warmth. Thick and chewy body with soft fizzy carbonation. Decent enough DIPA, but not something that I’d want to down a six pack of.
