puzzl (3254) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 20, 2008
Tap at Hop Devil. Big, fruity aroma, lots of banana, grainy malt, taste is a bit astringent. Reminds me of banana bread. Very malty flavor, light tropical fruit, pine, not too much alcohol, and not great.

JoeMcPhee (8565) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 13, 2008
Tap at HDG. Deep brown with ruddy highlights. Very unusual aroma, toasted marshmallows, hazelnut and a bit of strawberry. Sort of a rye/rummy character as well. Man, this is weird. Some light peachy/rotted fruit ester. Some solventy higher alcohols as well. Flavour is sweet and lightly fruity, but there is a muddle of yeast and malt flavours in the middle. Sort of a peppery/phenolic yeastiness. There are some interesting characteristics, but the whole package is a trainwreck.

hophead75 (2008) - Largo, Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2008
on tap at HDG. Dark brown in color with a medim sized tan head. A ton of spice in the aroma: ginger, allpice, with light chocolate, and estery/phenolic yeast. Taste is molasses, hints of chocolate and licorice, ginger, allspice, and some light banana and clove. Some spicy hops in the mid palate through the finish. Interesting, but I found it weird and a bit muddled at the time.

TBone (12998) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 12, 2008
Draught@Hop Devil Grill, NYC
Very dark ruby color, nice big creamy off-white head. Strong berry-like aroma (red- and blackberry). Full-bodied. Liquerish palate. Flavor is dominated by blackberry, then also some sweetish caramelly components and hints of yeast and herbal flavors. Alcoholic punch in the aftertaste. Quite a treat, like drinking cassis liquer.

Eyedrinkale (3213) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAR 7, 2008
Draft at HDG. Quite the interesting beer. Spicy with clove, allspice and ginger. There’s some flavors of tangerine, pineapple and plum.

jarspag (601) - San Francisco, California, USA - MAR 4, 2008
3rd Annual Woodshop Tasting, 3/1/08. Thanks Chris! 750 ml bottle with nose and flavor dominated by a hefty dose of raisins, zesty fruits, hops, yeast. Intriguing to say the least! I liked it...

hapjydeuce (953) - San Diego, California, USA - MAR 3, 2008
2007 bottle sampled at cquiroga’s 3rd Annual Woodshop Tasting. This was one of the more interesting beers of the evening, the pour is clear, dark amber with light bubble formation. Crazy weird aroma packed with raisins, potpourri, coriander and a tang I can’t figure out. Almost like juniper berries. Nice flavor that is a mix of more raisin, wild berries and leather. Tart and citric finish with a rounded finish. Alcohol is well-hidden.

WeeHeavySD (3359) - San Diego (Hillcrest), Oregon, USA - MAR 2, 2008
16th Rating from 3rd Annual Woodshop tasting in Temple City, CA. 3/1/08. One hell of a day put on by Cquiroga, thanks for a killer day Chris. Also spent the day there with bikesanbeer, my girlfriend Cyn, wetherel, JohnC, DenverLogan, dirty_martini, jasparg, DrBil, IPAFiend, awaisanen and many others, this was one crazy day. The first 750ml bottle I’ve ever seen from this brewery. Pours brown and bubbly. Nose is sweet with some yeast in it. Taste is sweet and full bodied a very cool beer.
