gyllenbock (4563) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 12, 2012
Bottle bought at Whole Foods Market - P Street (Washington DC) in October 2011. Amber with a medium, quite creamy head. The aroma was ok with lemon, some yeast, hops and perfume. The taste was not as good, the beer felt a bit old. Still drinkable.

nuplastikk (4346) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 24, 2012
Draft at Dexters. Nice hoppy aroma, some caramel, some sugary yeast notes. Filtered dull orange tan. Big, steady off white head. Somewhat watery, not so bold. Lemon-lime dulled hop bitterness, pleasant aftertaste. Mild earthy soapiness. Not so impressive. While it is slightly crisp and refreshing, sort of fails at capturing the style. Like and APA met a really simpe Bierre de Garde. Seawater, subdued.

JStax (2964) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2012
Gusher! Poured/Caught from a bottle into a snifter. Appearance is a hazy copper with an off white head of foam. Okay head retention. Aroma is faint fruitiness and a light floral hop profile. Taste is super strange. Its kind of grassy and astringent. Once you get past the astringency, a sweet tart taste comes through. I don’t think I can make it through the rest of my glass. Not pleasant. Overall a bad experience.

jgb9348 (4709) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JAN 30, 2012
Slightly hazy copper coloured amber tinted body with a perfect, two centimetre tall slightly-off white head. Aroma of fresh hops, a touch of black and white pepper, pungent yeast, corn, curacao and a bit of lemons - nice indeed. Medium-bodied; Assertive effervescence; Deep resiny and grassy hop flavour at first with a great mildly spicey middle and a good yeast and herbal finish, showing a variety of complex flavours ranging from IPA to Saison then finishing with a Wit - very nice. Aftertaste shows more hops than anything else, but some alcohol is noticeable, a few spice kicks from the pepper and a lot of yeast is still present. Overall, a great beer and a belgian-styled IPA if I’ve ever had one. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Total Wine in Alexandria, Virginia on 20-July-2011 and sampled at home in Washington on 30-January-2012 as the 100th rater for this fine beer from a finer state - Michigan.

wedgie9 (1893) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - JAN 29, 2012
Tasted in October 2011 from a bomber bottle shared at a tasting. Pours hazy orange with a thick white head that leaves thin, even lace. The nose is fruity peach and apricot with some floral hops and earthy, spicy yeast. The flavor is re focused on the bitter hops and spicy yeast with the fruity flavors underlying. The body is light with very lively carbonation and a long bitter and pitted fruit finish.

emacgee (4009) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JAN 26, 2012
Pours cloudy amber orange with two fingers of sticky off white head. Nose is nice, zesty with a peppery earthy yeast character. Notes of pineapple. Flavor is a tad bitter, citrus rind and black pepper. Palate is sharp, soft carbonation and bitter finish.

Strykzone (4912) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 19, 2012
Sampled at an esbls tasting. Ni brought it. Hazy dark golden. A big white head. Nice citrus hop aromavwith farmhouse funk. This is a pleasant mix of hops and farmhouse. It is lightly sour. Citrus is the finish.

wlajwl (3817) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 15, 2012
Aroma is citrus, slightly effervescent yeast and bread. The flavor is citrus/grapefruit up front with a decent malty base in the middle and a dry and bitter finish. Tastes like an APA mixed with a Belgian Ale, pretty good overall, leans a bit more to the APA side but has enough yeast to make it interesting and unique.

rondphoto (1935) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JAN 10, 2012
Reddish amber with a big, rocky head and pillowy lace. Solid caramel malt taste is over-run by hops that mingle nicely, creating an excellent balance. Excellent brew. Worth repeating often.

Finhead (1172) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - DEC 19, 2011
A hazy, burnt orange pour with a small white head. The aroma is dominated by floral and spicy hops. The light body has an oily texture with fizzy carbonation. It has a bittersweet taste with some orange zest and a slightly tart, dry finish.
