onceblind (3966) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 30, 2012
Pours out a darkish golden, near copper hue with a small rocky head. The aroma can be picked out inches away--candied grapefruit, pine resin, caramel, with a touch of cantaloupe tropicalness. Big full flavor with much hoppy bitterness, pine notes, a little leafy resin, grassy earthiness, with not as much of a tropical sweetness or malty caramel backbone as the aroma would have me believe. Made for pine-hungry hop heads, not for me.

obguthr (3670) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - OCT 25, 2012
Peanut hulls, unmalted and unhusked barley, and orange peel aroma. Cloudy amber, medium sticky yellow head. Overripe apricot, maraschino cherries, grain, bread crust, crackers. Very busy and certainly not boring.Some DMS. Spellbinding complexities, neat transitions, good balance, one of a kind, but slightly flawed. Entertaining.

GBBF. Light haze on this amber beer, small off white head. Palate is smooth and a little dry. Mild fine carbonation. Sweetish marmalade hops with a touch of mango. Spicy aniseed alcohol. Finishes dry. All right but I could do with less obvious alcohol.

Might be an old bottle, very pine forward and had a very similar taste that was rather rough.

That1Guy (1884) - Greeley, Colorado, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Bomber pours a bright orange with a frothy, sticky head. Definitely an accurate description on the label. This brew is quite juicy. Nice citrus aroma and flavor, balanced with a sweetness in the finish. A touch oxidized, but still solid.

pineypower (2492) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - AUG 27, 2012
Pours out a mostly clear, attractive orange color with a small off white head. Aroma is of citrus rind, bread, caramel and light cardboard. Taste is light citrus rind, bready caramel, light lingering alcohol. Would like to try a little fresher, had nice potential.

dmac (3924) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 25, 2012
22 oz bomber shared by Pineypower, thanks Dean. Poured a hazy amber with an average to larger frothy super off white head. Aroma of honey and citrus rind, grainy, slight earth coming out, maybe a touch of dry molasses. Flavor of dry citrus rind, toast, and dry old hops. Medium bodied with average carbonation and a slightly creamy finish. This good but it seems to be a bit old.

Scopey (6325) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2012
Cask at GBBF 2012. It pours hazy golden yellow, with a bubbly white head. The nose is light sweet tropical fruit, hop sack and pine. The taste is sticky tropical fruit, pine, resin, straw, light spice, grass, hopsack and some residual sweetness, with a long bitter finish. Medium body, soft carbonation and sticky mouth-feel. Good flavour, but somewhat cloying. I think this would be much better with more carbonation to lift the flavour and therefore drinkability.
