patricks110 (2425) - Alberta, CANADA - AUG 29, 2015
hot nose with a heavy alcohol aroma, light pine notes, not citrus. Pours a dark ruby amber with a thick off white head. Minimal lacing. The first sip is not what I expected. No discerning profile but a strong alcohol presence, heavy caramel malts, moderate bitterness. Off!

Tonkun (1296) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 26, 2015
Bottle. Copper pour with a big white head. Sweat, caramel, pine, citrus. No so pleasant aroma. Medium body. Sweet body. Not impressed.

MacBoost (1744) - Penfield, New York, USA - AUG 14, 2015
Holy shit this is an abomination of a beer. Sticky bitter malt juice. Tylenol. Sickly sweet. Tastes like a 10 year old recipe. Jesus fuck no.

Sebilinz (1793) - Linz, AUSTRIA - AUG 12, 2015
Bottle. Amber body with large lasting tan head. Aroma is malts, caramel some hints of fruits and pines. Taste is malts with some honey and caramel. Aftertaste is malty sweetness nicely balanced by some hops bitterness. Nice one but it has more of a barly wine.

joejames (478) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 27, 2015
Bottle to shaker glass, pours clear amber. Two finger off white head, some lacing and retention. Aroma of caramel and faint whiskey. Taste is really earthy bitter and malty sweet, a little too sweet for the style. Medium bodied, lively carbonation, sticky mouth feel. Finishes bittersweet. Tasting notes of Belgian sugar, caramel, dates, pine resin, alcohol. This drinks almost like a barley wine that’s over hopped. Not bad beer just another curve ball from Shipyard.

VGdogy (20) - Velika Gorica, CROATIA - JUN 27, 2015
Dark orange to copper colour, medium carbonation, thin head which gone in 10-15 sec. Aroma of nothing specific, presence of alcohol tough and unpleasent. Flavor for an DIPA is very bad. Alcohol, alcohol an nothing else. Afteertaste is bitter but harsh bitter. Not a good stuff I’m afraid.

Keg at Spacebar, 4/6/15. Clear golden, thin fizzy off-white head, poor retention. Aroma of floral and mild piney hops. The taste is resin, melon hops, pale malt. Medium bodied, mild lingering bitterness.

Trolleo (1341) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 12, 2015
Hazy to cloudy brown color, small white head which disappeared quickly. Biscuity aroma, a bit boozy. Taste is pleasantly hoppy, medium sweet and medium to heavy bitter. Medium to full body, soft carbonation. Boozy yet refreshing.
