lamas (1536) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 24, 2012
11.2 oz. bottle. I can’t make out the date on the cap. A hazy rust pour with a thick and creamy antique white head that leaves rings of lace behind. A nicely balanced aroma that features plenty of caramel, a nutty toffee quality, wet cardboard, toasted rye bread, musty funk, slight herbal notes, light grapefruits, and some hints of pine. Goes down medium to full-bodied and moderately creamy. Rich. Caramel and a roasty maltiness upfront taste-wise. Almost doughy with some touches of rye. Some bittering grapefruits at the tail end. Spicy here and there. Not much alcohol warmth despite the 10% ABV. This seems to have aged a bit - I’d be curious to see what a fresh bottle tastes like.

slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - NOV 16, 2012
11.2 bottle that was bought, dropped, cooled & drank w/ in an hour, so... cloudy w/ lots of floating yeast, pale, w/ minimal white head. Smells like sweet wet hops. Taste almost medicinal. It’s bitter, but I poured too much yeast, so its muddled. Alcohol is muted. Pricey.

sonnycheeba (4870) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Bottle. Pours hazy amber with thick, frothy off-wheat head; good retention and lacing. Aroma is cookie and caramel malt, floral hops, pine, honey, vanilla, and candy sugar. Flavor is balanced sweet malt and vibrant hops (medium hops) with some light fruit esters and vanilla; dry, hoppy finish. Medium body and low carbonation.

BeerandBlues2 (11829) - Escondido, California, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Bottle. Pours clear hazy orange with a medium, frothy white head, medium-short retention with light to good lacing. Aroma is heavy pine, resin, and floral hops, pear and apple hops with biscuit malt and light alcohol notes. Flavor is heavy hops and bitterness, light sweet malt and fruity esters with a dry finish. Medium-full body and moderate carbonation.

epiphyte707 (66) - eureka, California, USA - NOV 13, 2012
On tap, local beer bar eureka, CA. Beautiful dark golden almost green color, insane hoppy aroma of earth, ganja, fruity, and semi sweet tones. Sublimely hoppy juice flavor. Great lingering bitter aftertaste

Chico_Swanson (9) - Santa Barbara, California, USA - NOV 7, 2012 does not count
Poured from 11.2 oz botella into my favorite glass. Very close to that perfect IIPA honeycomb color. Nose is full of the earthier hop characters and boozey caramel. Taste is about the same. Good amounts of hop but mostly stinky resinous pine (none of the bright citrus that us Westcoasters love) banging through roasty caramel sweetness w/ a bit of heat. Good strong ale but too malty/sweet for my Dub ipa expectations.

jazz88 (2650) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 1, 2012
Bottle. Cloudy and murky yellow orange color with a laced white head. A sweet, herbal and resin hop aroma. A full bodied hop fueled caramel flavor with a strong bitter finish with lingering sweetness.

abemorsten (3502) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - OCT 28, 2012
On tap at Henriks, Bergen. Cloudy deep orange body with a fingerthick, creamy beige head. Apricots and other dried fruits on the nose. Full bodied. Pungent. Sweet, bitter and even a little salty. Light doughy texture. Long bitter finish. High drinkability.

Ktwse (3741) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 25, 2012
Pours cliudy amber with thick, medium off-white head. Aroma of caramel malt, resin, floral, barnyard, yeast. Taste is distinctly bitter with a deep, full sweet malty backbone. Finish is alcohol sweet with a long lingering bitterness. Thick and full creamy body, low carbonation. Kudos for the coolest label in a long time! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Foffern (1617) - Bodø, NORWAY - OCT 24, 2012
On tap at Henrik, Bergen. Has a hazy amber colour with a creamy medium off-white head. Wonderful fruity aroma with a lot of fruity hops, pine, bread and some citrus. Fruity hops also in the flavour with lots of malt, leather and some bread, and a dry ending. Rich and smooth mouthfeel, and a medium bitterness. A fantastic double IPA; Well-balanced and rich.
