hopscotch (9037) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 12, 2012
Bottle… Clear Longhorn-orange ale with a mid-sized, creamy, off-white head. Good retention. The malty bouquet furnishes nuts, caramel and toasted barley. Medium to full-bodied with snappy carbonation. The flavor is not quite as malty as the aroma; more bitter and boozy – grapefruit rind and pith stand out. Lengthy, rindy, bitter finish.

Bottle [660ml] shared with HogTownHarry, garthicus, GregClow, jerc & mabel -- c/o j&m. Jan. 6. Pours a deep amber with a small semi-lasting off-white head. Aroma is equally malty and hoppy, sweet and fruity. Sweet, malty flavour followed by hops, some fruit, a hint of alcohol and a decent bitter finish. Medium bodied. Really enjoyable.

IrishBoy (3820) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Bomber from a trade a couple years ago. Nose is floral hops with a lot of toffee and raisin pie sweetness. Clear rust colored with a moderate, lightly lacing beige head. Flavor is lightly bitter, golden raisins adding some sweetness and fruitiness, and some background toffee. Very smooth drinking!

jercraigs (7699) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 21, 2012
2012-01-06. Very dark amber body, small beige head. 3+ Flavour is interesting, fairly bitter but the sweet malty core makes it fairly sweet, caramel and sugary notes, fruity accents. 7+ Modest aroma, sweet malt, caramel, mild hops. 7+ Smooth medium bodied palate. 3+ Modest alcohol throughout makes itself known. Nice, less hoppy than I had hoped, I think I prefer the regular Wailing wench, but this was enjoyable. Bottle from Premier Gourmet, Buffalo
