UDBeernut (2694) - Earth & Jacksonville (weekends), Florida, USA - DEC 8, 2012
Cask pours hazy golden hue, small white head. Nose of hay, grains, and slight flowery essence. Taste is similar with a good cracker sweetness that appears. Well balanced bitterness. Body is light to medium but a bit nealy and chewy.

2012-12-07. Dark orange body, headless. Fruit flavour, muted citrus, decent amount of bitterness, lingering tropical fruit. Modest aroma, hoppy, mild fruit character. Average plus palate is pretty flat. Okay, didnít love it. Cask at Coles, Buffalo

swoopjones (7020) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 9, 2012
cask at Coles, lighter copper pour, light floral hop aroma. decent flavor of floral hops, light fruitiness, touch of caramel malts. nice sessionable APA, though flavor profile could use some oomph

pilgrimoutlaw (888) - Wayne, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2012
Gravity cask at TND. Pours pale gold with minimal head. Tropical fruit, earthy, caramel. Mild bitterness and sweetness. Body was smooth, though that may be a result of the gravity cask. Meh.

DiarmaidBHK (4239) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Draft at Burgatory fox chapel. Pours orange with an inch of white foam. Slight grapefruit on the nose. Some semblance of hop flavor on the tongue but it washes out clean finish. Eh!

DocLock (9999) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2012
Draft at Phoenixville. Iím excited to see yet another new New Zealand hop. Pours hazy straw colored, not orangy or brown at all, but toward the yellow end of the lovibond scale. The head is off-white, sparse, and somewhat lacey. Nose is resiny and tropical fruity, with pale malt and some spice. At first sip, I noted papaya and tannic notes, mild peppery resiny hops, and pale malt. Finishes crisp, very resiny and hoppy, with a spare pale malt bill that balances this one out well. This isnít a hop bomb, and it is a nice unique new hop APA.

egajdzis (6130) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 4, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 6, 2012 Amber color with a small, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, some citrus, tropical fruits, pine, toast, and light grass. Taste of some caramel, toasted malts, light citrus, pine, and abrasive hop bitterness. This could have been pretty solid if that bitterness was softened somehow.
50th different pale ale or IPA from Sly Fox.
