TwoSipDip (8894) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 22, 2013
Bottle @ home picked up at Mile High Liquor Denver. Pours a bit hazy, golden orange appearance with a nice, full khaki head. Quite potent, spicy and fresh, herbal, chewy herbal yeasty, just a touch citrusy aroma. Carbonation is a bit strong and zippy. Potent grassy, very herbal, fairly dry grainy flavor. Maybe a bit of citrus, but mostly a grassy, herbal flavor. Interesting and pretty tasty.

FROTHINGSLOSH (4785) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Sampled on draft at the Headkeeper this beer poured a murky orange-amber color with a large fluffy and creamy orange-white head that lingered and left incredible lacing. The aroma was tart citrus, chalk and a bit of sourdough bread> The flavor was tart, chalky, citrus Pez candies and was very dry. Long tart, dry, Pez candy finish. Medium body. Disappointing.

Pailhead (4606) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JUN 21, 2014
Bottle: The aroma has light caramel, fruit, and herbal/spicy notes. It pours a hazy (bordering on cloudy) dark orange with a large creamy off-white head that has great retention. There is a lot of soapy webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of caramel and faint citrus. The finish has some moderate herbal and spicy notes with some light lemon peel.
