VT (1413) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 20, 2013
750 ml bottle. Pours a thinly veiled dark amber-copper with a resilient, creamy white head. Aroma is caramel, grass, spices, vegetable oils. Flavor is caramel, pine resin, earthy, sandy. Finish is very herbal, lots of hops. Bitterness is high. Some earth, and a touch of citrus, mostly lemon. Medium body, creamy mouthfeel, average carbonation. Good, but too much caramel at the forefront.

shorlin (650) - St. John’s, Newfoundland, CANADA - OCT 7, 2013
Tried the 2013 Vintage. Man, they put those corks in there for life! Aroma is a very nice hop, citrus notes but also kind of earthy, musky. Appearance is great, deep amber-brown colour and a well-formed rocky, lacy head. Feel is kind of oily or creamy at first, but not really big through the middle. The finish is very nice with a burst of bitter dryness at the end. Taste is bitter throughout, but tempered by an initial sweetness and that nice creamy feel. Really quite a good beer.

Nilz (385) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - SEP 22, 2013
On tap at ’el camino’, Ottawa, a reddish clear with a frothy head. Armpits of hops and some gray note. Taste a nice hoppy bitterness, refreshing with a hint of spiciness.

bulldogops (1048) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - SEP 15, 2013
2 oz sample at Beer Revolution (courtesy of @kgamiller). Dark amber pour with a bubbly, lasting white foam. Aroma is mild citrus but very grainy, lots of subtle earthy and smoky notes. Taste is a blast of grassy sweetness, tempered by an explosion of hoppy bitterness, lots of roast malt character and noble hops drying out the finish, but leaving the palate demanding another sip.

750ml bottle. Pours ruby red colour with bubbly head that disapates to thin outer lacing. Aroma of citrus and grass. Flavour balances well between malty backbone and fresh citrusy hops. Fantastic beer and worth waiting till Autumn! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bendrixian (1109) - Canadiana, Nova Scotia, CANADA - SEP 13, 2013
2013 vintage with a tight cork closure. Cloudy and mahogany colour with a pillowy head that remains for quite a while. Fresh hoppy aroma with pine cones and a hint of citrus, some malts and more hops and a hint of yeast. The brew sports a creamy texture, has a hoppy bitter finish and very fresh hoppy taste. Tasty stuff!

asheft (2509) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 11, 2013
Spicy melanoidin malt aroma with some pungent herbal hops. Almost clear ruddy amber under a thin, white sheet. Spicy melanoidin malt flavour complemented by floral and citrus hops. Medium light body, moderate carbonation, slightly bitter finish.

Freaky_tiki (552) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 1, 2013
2013 vintage pours -- after a trying to pull the cork that was more bullish & uncooperative than the conservatives antiquated war on drugs policy -- is deep mahogany with a two finger plush cap that fades slowly. Aroma is somewhat muted. Fantastic taste is thick & hoppy. A great drink with hank Williams on the radio & the beer can chicken on the bbq as the summer dies on the day before labour day.

Copper brown colour, frothy head. Flip top (Grolsch type) bottle. Floral, citrus, earthy notes. Taste is more grapefruit meat than grapefruit peel. Sweetish, ends dry. Good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
