AmEricanbrew (6737) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - DEC 17, 2012
Tap@ Uber Tavern. Clear amber color with ivory head. Piney, booze, caramel aromas. Medium body with average co2. Sharp grainy caramel flavors with bigass bitter grapefruit hoppage--just not right.

mcberko (14644) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 9, 2012
On tap at Chuckís 85th St. Market, pours a cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma of orange zest, resinous hops and some caramel. Flavour brings out tropical fruity zest, piney and resinous hops, orange zest, and a caramel, biscuity malt backbone. Full-bodied, unique flavour profile, characterized by the zest while still being juicy and malty. Great stuff.

Taster @ North Sound Brewing. Kurt seems to really love hops judging by the number of IPAs offered as well as the the ability to dry hop your own beer (while in the glass!) This is definitely the best one I tried there.

riversideAK (6160) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUN 16, 2012
Nose of some tropical fruit, crackery malt, a little pale sweetness, pineapple, citrus, solid nose. Pours hazy golden, thin head. Flavors of light pale malts sweetness, floral hops, a little dank and some apricot and pineapple. SOlid bitterness rounds out the finish. Pretty nice beer and hides the 10.1% well.

bvc (1241) - Washington, USA - MAY 9, 2012
Draft at beer authority. Says that it is aged on bourbon, so Iím going with this being the same beer. Hazed, canít see through at all, orangish light toffee with light tan head and a touch of lacing. Syrupy, resinous pine, hints of doughy malt with a very faint touch of orange and bourbon/oak notes. Dry, bitter assertive hops up front...doughy malts, touch of bourbon and oak into the finish with long bitter hop finish. Bold and pretty solid.

after4ever (7608) - Brier, Washington, USA - FEB 27, 2012
Draft at elliott bay. Pours a crystal clear medium gold with a loose white head. Plenty of drippy lace. Enormous fruity nose, with tangerine and mango showing. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Caramel, tangerine, and mango on the mid palate. Long finish that crosses over from resin into a bit of shampoo, but otherwise a pretty spectacular dipa.
