22oz from BevMo
Appearance: Clear dark ruby with a nice foamy off-white head and lots of lacing in the glass
Aroma: Pine, dark fruits, caramel and citrus
Taste: Silky mouthfeel. Pine, dark malts and citrus with some hop bitterness in the finish
This is a great beer. Well balanced with plenty of hop aroma and taste and the malts to back it up without being sweet.

jhumphries69 (1034) - Tyrone, Georgia, USA - APR 23, 2010
22oz bomber. Pours brown with amber and red highlights and a thin light tan head. Aroma is awesome - resiny and evergreen, covered with caramel and orange marmalade - subtle chocolate and toffee qualities. Flavor is tingly bittersweet, full of resiny pine needle hops. Some toast and toffee and some grassiness towards midpalate. Bitter finish with dryness and some alcohol. Mouthfeel is lighter than expected - fluffy from carbonation with lots of tickle and sting on the tip of the tongue. Strong drying sensation from alcohol. Medium body that feels fuller, almost syrupy, as carbon dioxide is released from swishing it in the mouth. Overall - fantastic beer. Love the wonderful aromatic hop quality.

22. pours a dirty red-brown with small copper head. strong nose of hops and more hops. taste of sweet baked alcohol. thin soda-esque messy feel. Dry thirsty finish. Looks smells and tastes pretty good but that’s were it stops being pretty good and turns kinda good.

beerbill (3452) - Laurel, New York, USA - APR 23, 2010
22 oz. bottle. Pours a clear amber with a thin-moderate off-white head that lasted until mid-glass and left light lace. Malty? WTF! If the aroma is any indication, this thing is a hop monster. The aroma is pine, pine and more pine with no malt to speak of. There is a some mild malt in the flavor, but as in the aroma, is dominated by resinous pine. Strong bitterness at the finish. Medium bodied.

Cask. Pours an amber brune body with an off white head. Green grassy hop tones, floral notes, light herbal and grassy body with a mild bitterness. A bit slick with some light hop resins. Nice ale.

Bottled. Pours brown/amber with a mimimal off white head. Smells of alcohol, fruit, and hay. Flavors include grapefruit, raisin, and malt. It is a medium sour, medium bodied, moderately bitter beer. It finishes long with overwhelming malt and chocolate.Pretty good.

brentfeesh (1207) - Mansfield, Ohio, USA - APR 22, 2010
Good looking brew with a frothy head. Nice aroma with a combo of clean, metalic, pine and light malt. The flavor is just a malty mess. That’s all I can realy say about the flavor. Sticky mouth feel full body. Whatever.

TheAlum (5833) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 22, 2010
22 oz bottle from Binnys (Naperville, IL). Pours a dark brownish copper, a good haziness, decent tannish head that laces ok, some deep red elements. Aromas are a nice malty sweetness, caramel and toffee pair with biscuits, floral hop bitterness, faint licorice, touch of red pit fruit, and maybe even a faint touch of juniper on the nose. Initial is medium bodied, a soapy floral hoppiness moves into a touch of grapefruit, pretty good hopping moves into caramel, toffee, biscuits, grainy bread dough. The grapefruit hopping really sticks to the palate, a light warming alcohol, a faint reddish pit fruit like cherry comes in, mellow. Faint vanilla, a pretty solid brown ale. I’d prefer it have a bit lighter pull in the ABV category personally. Nicw, finish is lightly bitter hops sticking to it, a faint mellow sweetness. Not bad. A bit soapy, a little spicey, brown malts prevail with a solid hopping

carruthm (1401) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 21, 2010
sweet with some traces of bitter hops, but it lacks a dominant aroma or flavor profile and the palate is a touch watery.

chronictonic (473) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 21, 2010
Tap @ Union Jacks - dark red brownish color with small but firm white head. Big hop aroma - lots of dry hopping. Floral yet meaty (chinook?) aroma. Round full soft mouthfeel - slightly sweet at the beginning. Finishes with a nice snappy bitterness.
