tjthresh (1867) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - JUN 7, 2012
I’ve wanted to try this for quite awhile. It did not disappoint. Pours clear copper with a pure white head. The nose is rich with pine and muted citrus. Hops certainly carry the show here, but I get just enough malt. Bold bitterness yet easily drinkable as far as I am concerned. Dry finish. Man, I like this a lot.

Strykzone (6718) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 14, 2016
Bomber from hayduke that we had together via facebook chat. Copper hued and semi clear. An off white fluffy head leaves powdery lacing. Aroma is pine and tangerine and it is fairly robust. I also taste pine. My taste buds are pine blind so there must be a lot of pine! That and tangerine dominate. Some yeast, too. Dangerous stuff! Very tasty and very easy to drink. With a high ABV that makes for trouble!

Bryggarnas ölbar. Extremt maltig i doften! Barley wine varning men bara 8% alkohol!. Smakar maltsötma med mycket blåa druvor. Bra beska som tar över mer å mer. Fin avslutning . Extremt maltig Dipa med hög efterbeska. Ok Dipa i PQ stil.

DocJitsu (1684) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - AUG 27, 2016
Pours a clear deep golden with a clumping off white head. Sugary, medium toast malt nose with a mildly spicy hop character. Flavors are representative of the bouquet. Mouthfeel is soft and full.

From bomber. Copper pour with a one-finger whitish head and lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma and taste of biscuit, malts. Bitter, nice sweetness and malty flavors. Medium full mouthfeel.

teamsale (174) - Washington, USA - APR 28, 2016
Pours a dark gold orange with a two finger beige head. Heavy nyquil scent, along with plenty of fresh oranges, not that appealing. Has a nice taste, much better than the aroma, still lots of citrus. Better than average overall but not by that much.

Big aromas of cascade hops. Citrus, green apple, orange peel, pear. Pours orange dark copper with off white head. Taste is more hops backed by malty, chewy backbone. Medium high carbonation helps to get full flavor profile. Excelent.
