GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - JUN 5, 2012
Tap thanks to argo0 and craftycarl21. 360, thick, white lace atop clear red. Oh no, imperial red ale again.... Juicy hop nose. Taste is tea, cherries, nuts, mild astringency and tannins. Some cherry fruit juice. Finish is a palate wrecker- like sucking on tree bark. Not good within a tasting flight. Had to be abandoned quickly.

arminjewell (9262) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 20, 2012
Pour on tap at Parry’s Pizza, dark red pour with thin white head, aroma brought notes of garlic, onion notes with hints of pine and grass, touch of biscuit, caramel notes, hints of orange in there as well. Taste is a bit odd with a herbal note, touch of grass and pine, hints of orange, caramel and toffee, slight earth, finishing fairly bitter.

onceblind (7472) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAR 13, 2012
At Avery’s 2012 Strong Ale Fest. Clear amber with that signature foamy thick light khaki head from SN. Aroma is sticky floral hops, dank sweet malts, and a touch of citrus. Taste is kinda weird, with flavors of bitter pine hops, light caramel, a touch of cardboard, more herbal hop bitterness, and some weird malty sweetness, not sure how to place it.

nuplastikk (5794) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 2, 2013
12oz pour at Dexters. Filtered brown-orange. Big, creamy off-white/beige head. Quite nice, very familiar territory for SN, somewhat like the Torpedo and Rye merged. Big chewy malt tones, but an even more massive resiny pine-citrus hop bill. Bold, reminiscent of big hoppy American Scotch Ales, a touch amber forward. a touch soapy and brutal at times, but still another winner for SN.

Thorpe429 (5016) - , Illinois, USA - JUN 12, 2012
On tap at Churchkey. Served in a mini snifter. Pours a moderate red-amber color with an off-white head and some lacing. The nose carries some citrus hops and a touch of pine atop some bready malt. Flavor has bready malt with a slight bit of toast and amber. Citrus hops and a bit of pine and earth. Medium body with good carbonation. Somewhat bitter. Pretty good.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - MAY 19, 2015
Bottle: Deep copper with a slight red hue, very small amount of chill haze that eventually dissipates. Creamy beige cap. Aroma of pine sap, biscuit malt, toasted bread, yeast, mild resins, grapefruit rind, & sugary orange zest. Flavor starts more citrusy & leafy with a bit of herbal & ashy hops, the pine & resin grow towards the back-end. Malts are subtle at first but grow & last into the finish; very biscuit, full of toasted bread, light caramel, & even a small twinge of toffee. Peppery pine finish with lingering malty overtones, semi-sticky mouth feel. Decent.
