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!

vyvvy (3978) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - JAN 19, 2014
On tap at Cuginos. Pours clear bronze with a dense off-white head. The aroma has funky hops, tropical notes, smooth toasty barleywine style malt, fresh baked bread, caramel, vanilla and a little grapefruit. It has a medium / full body with a bit of harshness and light sharp carbonation. The taste starts off with big sweet malt, woody oak, dried fruit hoppiness, spice, crackers and caramel. The finish gets very earthy with the hops and is on the resiny side. As the beer warms up the alcohol comes out a lot more and the hops and resin get very intense to the point where it lost the enjoyable traits at the beginning.

Cybercat (3305) - 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.
