Bottle. Pours amber orange with a huge huge off white head. Sweet malty aroma with earthy hops. The flavor has sweet toffee malty with weird earthy and floral hoppy notes. Either old or just not that good, no date on the bottle so who knows.

12 ounce thanks to James. Malty IPA with big caramel. Too much for me. Hops take a big back seat here.

12oz bottle from TBS, thanks Matt. Rating #24. Very hazy datk orange/brown color with a big beige head, lots of carbonation out of the bottle, it was a small gusher when I opened it. Sweet grapefruit aroma, rather subdued though. Mild flavor, hops are a bit muted. Lots of carbonation, pretty easy drinking IPA. (1993)

Bottle shared, thanks to Dmac. Pours out a cloudy orange color with a huge foamy head that screams infection....but the aroma tells of none. Aroma is light citrus hops, sweet ceral malt and some grassy notes. Taste is caramel malts, light grassy hops, citrus and a light lingering sweet malty note on a finish that has some bitterness. Was shocked how much this one gushed, yet there was no infection.

12 oz bottle from Thebeersomeiler, thanks M. Holy FUCK was this a bottle BOMB!!! I opened it up and almost lost my thumb trying to hold back the liquid. Funny thing was after I poured some in my glass, after about ten minutes of the bottle spweing head, it didn’t smell infected. The pour was a very hazy light apple cider brown with a tinge of orange. No need to mention the head on this one since it was all head. Aroma of honey, flowers, dough, dusty grains, toffee. Palate suprisingly wasn’t destroyed by the CRAZY amount of carbonation, actually very smooth on a thinner slightly watery body with soft to average carbonation. Flavor of grains, cereal, honey, dry grassy hops, orange marmalade. I can’t believe what a gusher this one was for a non-infected beer.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
from a bottle with lots of sediment floating in it. Aroma of earthy hops, some citrus, plenty of resin and sap. Medium to full in body, thick, kind of chewy. This is an earthy, resiny IPA tasting of nugget, soil, resin, Overall I found it raw and enjoyable, if slightly unrefined.
