5000 (6211) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bottle:   Dark caramel, a little muddy, thin frothy sandy head, little lacing.   Nice citrusy nose, heavy rind and citrus peel.   Similar tongue, faint warming.   Also fairly good caramel malt.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Seems like a mini American Barley Wine.   Nice balance, not too strong with the bitterness, malts counteract what is there.   Fairly simple, but fairly enjoyable.   Lingering citrus peel, pith, and rind, along with semi-sweet caramel malts.   Good!   Thanks for the bottle Bill!

Mora2000 (5539) - McKinney, Texas, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Hazy red color with a white head. The aroma is full of resinous pine with some grass mixed in. The flavor has some nice bitter pine and resin notes, as well as some citrus. There is a hint of malt, but the bitterness is fairly high for the style. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

(12oz bottle thanks to bu11zeye) clear rich copper, soapy tan bubbles. Nose of honey, chlorine, pine, cream, herbal. Taste is light alcohol, bit astringent, grapefruit, citrus zest oil, interesting beer but not the easiest drinker.

travita (3856) - Frisco, Texas, USA - JAN 18, 2013
Bottle. The look is red, hanging sediment, somewhat clear, and a well carbed beige head. The smell wafted from the bottle while pouring, pine, hops, grassy, caramel, fruits, mostly grapefruits, just slightly muddled. The taste is caramel, hops, pine, grapefruits, some bitterness but not too much, grass, and alcohol.
