12 oz. can, $9 per 6 @ Binny’s. Yet another local brewpub on store shelves. This one canned yet. This one pours dark orange, and pretty cloudy. Bubbly pale ale head. Smell has some nice hop florals to it, citrus and light pine on the back end. Taste is more malty, even a bit sticky. Hops are settled in for balance, unlike most small brewers’ pale ale. That would make this beer suffer in comparison to other hop bombs, but its a nice beer either way. Malts a little thick to qualify as a lawnmower beer, which is where my mind is this extended weekend. But it would be a good dinner beer.

Hazy amber color with white head. Can really smell the cascade hops. Perhaps a little bitter for the style.

12 oz can. Pours a very hazy, almost opaque deep orange. Pretty color. Large sustained off-white head. Aroma is lightly hoppy with citrus. Some earthy smell. Tastes of citrus and herbs. Bitter grapefruit finish that lingers. Decent.

Fucken can offered @ gmellison. Got this bad boy in a trade with Adumb. Thanks! Really fucken murky, dark orange appearance with a white head. Orange blossom, citrus, fruit cocktail, powdery / potpourri aroma. Flavor is ok. Pretty chalky / mineralic but once you get past that it has a decent citrus / floral thing going one. Mouth feel is again a bit powdery. Moderate to high bitterness. Not awful and actually better than I was expecting based on the appearance and aroma, but not something I’d buy again.

decaturstevo (4931) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - NOV 12, 2013
Lightly hazed orange pour with creamy white head. Aroma is light resiny/floral hops. Some almost metallic notes at first. Flavor is light malt and a more floral than resiny bitter. Some bready notes. Meidum bodied with good carbonation. A beer maybe a tad past his prime. but ok

DSG (5657) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - SEP 15, 2013
Bottle sample at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Thanks zvikar. Amber with a white head. Pleasant hops aroma with citrus, a bit of tropical fruits and floral notes. Flavor has a bit of sweetish maltiness and a finish with nice bitter citric hops. Light to medium-bodied. Simple, but nice and easy-drinking.
