Dacrza (737) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - AUG 29, 2013
DATE TASTED: August 22, 2013 ... GLASSWARE: Victory Hop Devil nonick... OCCASION: last night of camp thoughts--a good eight weeks...APPEARANCE: handsome reddish-brown body supports a thick off-white head that laces reasonably well; subtle bubbles... AROMA: sweet caramel and cinnamon; hops are light and aromatic--suggestive of soft pine; malts lend a Scottish allure...PALATE: like a brown ale, beginning with a solid malty backbone; hops tickle the teeth, but the malt holds the trump in the profile...TASTE: significant warming aftertaste; medium-bodied, almost an IPA; the alcohol is palpable... OVERALL: an intriguing purchase that may not live up to its bomber status; rounded enough to be a thought on St. Patty’s day, but not powerful or substantial enough to demand attention on a non-holiday night; not much of a summer beer either; still, not without its merits or usefulness...

brokensail (14558) - San Leandro, California, USA - FEB 2, 2016
​On tap @ Napa Smith. Clear orange/amber colored beer and a white head. Lots of banana and fruity, peachy esters. Some bread, caramel, and grassy hops. There’s a strong toast, caramel, and vanilla note to the flavor. Light hop profile. Somewhat grassy and floral. Fine for this sort of beer, even if it’s probably flawed.

Draft at source. A mostly sweet caramel malt aroma with not much toasty malt character. Very clear pale red color. Small white head. Mostly caramel in the flavor with a light slickness on the tongue. Light butter, maybe.minimal hop expression.

Hopmaestro (986) - Örebro, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2015
Backlog from lost & found notes: An aroma of older flowers and some earth. Sweet and malty. Taste is surprisingly fresh for being an amber, toffee, peaches, some ripe fruits, flowers and leaves.

12oz bottle poured to pint glass. Off white head one finger thick, fades quickly, moderate lacing. Smells of overripe citrus and sweet bread. Fruity sweet flavor with nice roasted malts follow through. Nice linger of hops bitterness and alcohol warmth on the back end.
