Blairgus (2597) - California, USA - JUL 12, 2011
12 July 2011, bottle. light amber, slightly pinkish, clear, steady bubbles. frothy tan head. sweet malt and rosy hops in the nose. med/thin watery body w/ some carbonation. can’t say i’m a huge fan of this. it is arather nettle/briar hop flavor. there’s no real sweetness or malt flavour and the hops aren’t the best to rest a beer on.

kuphish (380) - Fort Lauderdale, Florida, USA - SEP 21, 2009
Bomber. Pours an average, foamy, light tan head. Clear, amber body. Citrus and pine nose with some sticky crystal. More fruit in the flavor - pear and white grape accompany the suspected pine and grapefruit. More sweet crystal malt. Medium-full body with a sticky, resinous mouthfeel. Detracting. Lingering hop flavor with a bitter finish. Pretty good, but the mouthfeel really dragged it down for me.
