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.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - APR 21, 2010
22 oz. bottle from Plaza Liquors - Pours a clear reddish-brown color with a nice size off white head. Very light lacing. Aroma is floral hops and toasted malt. Flavor is lightly sweetened toasted malt with some nice hops to back it up. Finish has a bit of hops lingering. Medium body. A nice beer.

HogTownHarry (6127) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - APR 19, 2010
On draught at Cole’s. Hazy amber with virtually no head. Sweet aroma, yeasty - quite a "Belgian" character to it, but also dry and a bit grassy - my notes say almost like a roasty trippel - whatever that might be. My taste notes are "yeah - what the fuck!" - unexpected; sweet - like a a mash-up of an English bitter and a decent Belgian golden ale; sweet, yeasty, a bit of alcohol for good measure; interesting. Light bodied, virtually no carbonation with moderate alcohol and slightly dry in the finish; kinda weird, interesting.

22oz bottle at Redlight. Big brown pour with a thick off white head. Nice citrus hop aroma and lots of malt. Spicy hops, big malt body. Good brew.

Thanks to hudsonphotog for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a dark, reddish-brown color with an off-white head. The aroma is a nice mix of piney hops and caramel malt. The flavor is big time orange citrus and pine hops with a strong caramel malt backbone. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

aroma is a solid pine. pours a dark orange. taste is a middle bitterness that lingers but doesn’t destroy the palate. nicely balanced.

Strykzone (5038) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2010
Thanks Hayduke! Dark brown and clear with plenty of red, moderate carbonation floats up, a one and a half finger of tan head has strong retention. A nice hop/malt balance in the nose. Molasses, citrus, pine but nothing big or aggressive. The flavor is bigger and quite nice. Hops offer pine and tart citrus and there is a strong maltiness. A bit of chocolate adds some complexity. This beer moves cycles from the malt, to the hops, to the chocolate, and then it cycles again. A very tasty beer and a fun beer to drink. The sum is better than the parts here.

Transparent light brown pour, with a mid-sized tan head. Nice and malty, but with enough hops to keep it crisp -- brown sugar and light molasses, with maybe a bit of vanilla in here... but really not at all overbearingly sweet. the alcohol is apparent, but only just - this is something like a blend of brown shugga with a hoppy barleywine. Tasty, and I really like how crisp it stays given the fact they tout the malt contingent.
