Colour... looks just like unfiltered apple cidre. Nose... citrusy hops. Palate... just a bit hoppy!! Chewy as all get out! Feel like I just chewed on a grapefruit skin and a hop cone, at the same time. Certainly not 1,000 IBU’s but quite a hoppy number nonetheless.

DJMonarch (9159) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - AUG 16, 2010
From the Bottle at Chris O’s pre GBBF tasting, Kensal Rise 31/07/2010 Big hop aroma. Thick creamy head. Amber coloured strong in alcohol and very hoppy with a pine flavour. A hint of dryness in a very bitter malt finish.

wedgie9 (1837) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - AUG 12, 2010
Tasted from bottle purchased at West Lakeview Liquors. Pours dark amber with a whole lot of chunky sediment and a thick tan head with solid retention. Nose is very sweet toasty malt with an underlying earthy component and a small amount of aromatic hops in the background. Flavor is way hoppier than the nose would have suggested, but there is still a good balance with the super caramelized toasty malts and the sweetness. The body is full with soft carbonation and a long super bitter finish.

oh6gdx (20247) - Vasa, FINLAND - AUG 11, 2010
Bottled@The Chriso rock the roof down pre-GBBF tasting. Amber colour, small off-white head. Aroma is bigtime zesty and fruity. Flavour is the same along with some nectar and grass. Doesn’t feel anywhere near 1000 IBU though. Mild notes of alcohol as it gets a bit warmer.

JohnnyJ (4266) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 10, 2010
Bottle. Dark amber pour, thick sticky caramel colored head. Caramel malt, light citrus, bitter hops, candy sweetness, almost metallic. Really? Not very good.

kramer (4866) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2010
On tap, Al’s of Hampden. Cloudy dark amber body with a small frothy white head that fell to a wispy film. The nose is big resiny hops with a heavy caramel malt base. Good bit of toffee under there too. Tons of bitterness and sticky resiny hops on the first sip, just as advertised. Huge sticky malt base. This is anything but subtle. Mouthfeel is as resiny and sticky as I have ever experienced. This coats the inside of the mouth like paint. Interesting, but tough to finish a whole pint of it.

hellbilly (3249) - scottsdale über alles, Arizona, USA - AUG 8, 2010
bottle from papago shared 6/27/10. hazy dark orange brown capped with a white head. spots of foam stick to the inside of the glass. huge dank hop aroma!.... sticky, pine, leafy, grass, citrus and woody hops mix with a bunch of caramel malt. the flavor is the same... and unfortunately too sweet. there are a lot of drying hops and a bitterness on the finish but it leaves me wanting something more. the medium to full body is kept drinkable by the massive amount of hops and their lingering dryness. 8/4/7/4/14/3.7

swoopjones (5666) - Buffalo, New York, USA - AUG 8, 2010
bottle, shared with Rudolf & IPFreely at Coles. cork & caged, no pop at all. Deep copper pour, BW like aroma, full rich maltiness, solid hop nose. Taste is rich malts, sweet caramel maltiness, solid bitterness that seems to tail off toward the finish. tastes like a slightly older Great Divide Old ??? (temp. brain freeze) notes of tea, grapefruit & orange. decent

Bottled from Systembolaget. Murky dark amber. Medium tan head. Sweet and slightly hoppy aroma. Thick and oily palate. Earthy flavour with a high bitterness.

rlgk (10112) - Göteborg/Jönköping, SWEDEN - AUG 3, 2010
Bottle, thanks to larsniclas. Really hazy amber/grey color, big beige head. Hoppy aroma, but not as much as expected. Huge hop flavor, really bitter and not much more. One-dimensional.
