Cybercat (3331) - Georgia, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Comes out of the tap hazy honey golden with an OK buff head. Aroma is strong and hoppy with a fruity hint. Flavor is quite hoppy - no surprise and what one wants! - with hints of caramel and pomme fruit. Texture has good firmness and fizz. Worthy of at least a try.

GSH1976 (207) - Delaware, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Picked up two 32 oz growlers of this at State Line for $6 each. If I didn’t know who made this beer I would guess Lagunitas because it has their "signature" taste and that is not a bad thing. Pours a hazy orange with about one finger of white head and decent lacing. The aroma is excellent with lots of pine and citrus (orange) and a hint of caramel. Taste is bitter but not overpowering and there is just enough caramel malt sweetness to keep it almost perfectly balanced. Body is medium to heavy and oily. For a 10% abv beer the alcohol is hidden well. Excellent beer and I am glad I was able to try this.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Draught @ Brouwer’s Café:   Fireweed honey in color, bright, moderate frothy off-white head, nice lacing.   Big fresh citrusy nose, very juicy.   Very juicy on the tongue, citrusy, bitter without being biting, very clean.   This one is great!   Smooth, clean, flavorful, good nose and color, and well balanced.   Moderate to full body and mouthfeel.   Strong citrus peel and pith on the finish, slightly candied.   Hard to also believe this one is 10%.   Great stuff!

cstuartj (976) - Washington, USA - DEC 19, 2013
On tap. Pours a dual orange yellow thin head laces well. The nose is out of this world, huge floral notes, pine straw, wet hops, grapefruit. Taste is near perfectly balanced, no over alcohol or sugar taste here, all hop flowers and pine. Love it!
