Goodgrief (1994) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - MAR 23, 2012
On tap. Dark pour. Sweet, caramel malt aroma. Just a god awful teabaggy mess. I like a little teabag, but this was a little much, and the huge hops clanged like a bad cymbal. Just not good.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUN 7, 2011
Tap at McKenzie for RBSG 2011. The pour is a clearish strawberry body with a massive creme head with infinite retention and sticky lace. I’m pretty sure the abv listed for this one was 8.5% and 80 IBUs. New recipe? Nose is heavy soap and detergent. Taste is all soap and detergent. Ick. Probably left in fermentation for too long.

yespr (40453) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - JUN 7, 2011
From tap at the brewpub. Pours hazy dark orange with a small and slight tan and creamy head. Aroma is mild fruity and slight mixed peachy to citrusy. Smooth grapefruity and peachy. Bitter and rather dry hoppy into the finish. Dry and lingering fruity into the far finish.

Draft. Pours amber with an off white head. Hoppy citric and sweet malty aroma with some light floral notes. The flavor has floral and citric hops on a lightly sweet malty base. Pretty good.
