JorisPPattyn (7722) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 27, 2012
Arbitrary score 4/5 for Appearance, as nighttime conditions prevented correct assessment. Grapefruit, C-hops galore, fruity as few. Bitter-fruity flavour, grapefruit and grapefruitpeels, with a sweeter finish more reminiscent of lytchee. Very velvety feel, well-carbonated feel if not visually so. Quite balanced, surprisingly original; IPA-like and yet it is definitiely a red ale. Txs, CarlK!

Suttree (4908) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 29, 2012
Reddish copper, loose white head. Sticky, resiny aroma, sticky resin flavor. Very hoppy, with enough malt to support it. Tasty.

Slightly hazy dark orange. Earthy hop aroma, sweet malt underneath. Firm bitterness in the flavor, long dry finish. Nice one.

Pint at Marble Brewery. This beer pours a dark ruby amber color with a yellowish tan head that laces nicely throughout the pint. This beer is a moderately heavy beer with strong pine notes from the hops and honey/butterscotch notes from the malts. This beer paired nicely with my spicy turkey-grilled cheese sandwich.
