ExpendableHero (728) - Florida, USA - DEC 2, 2011
An interesting beer. Hazy golden color, with a white head. Aromas of pine/spruce hops, and some citrus. Tastes of pine/spruce/floral hops, lemon/lime citrus, and some touches of cedar wood. Dry tasting, bittersweet finish. Not bad, just a bit underwhelming. The cedar flavor is neat though.

OleR (4597) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 2, 2011
Shared bottle @RBNAG-11. Clear, deep amber. Low off-white head. Discreet aroma of sweet caramelly malts and light fruity and minty hops. Heavily sweet and light peppery malt flavor. Solid bitterness. Light fruity hop flavor. Oily mouthfeel, bordering on sticky. Over the top sweet ending.

johnnnniee (2038) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - NOV 28, 2011
Hmm I’ve never seen this before and from the Virgin Islands what the hell. Best by 8/2012 Pours a medium copper color with a dense white head that slowly dissipates to a cap and leaves decent lace on the way down. Smells IPA-ish citrus and sweet caramel malts with emphasis on malt. Taste is mostly caramel, butterscotch and bready malt with a smattering of citrus and earthy hops. Medium thin body with a moderate, level of carbonation and a sweet bubbly mouthfeel. Mediocre at best and damn you Shipyard for tricking me into buying another one of your beers.

larsga (5962) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 26, 2011
Small offwhite head. Clear amber body. Resiny strawy grainy aroma with earthy plasticky notes. Dry-sweet earthy strawy resiny taste with grassy oily notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, mealy mouthfeel. Dryish grassy strawy fruity aftertaste. Nice and drinkable. (Bottle shared at RBNAG-11.)

stobbe74 (3789) - DENMARK - NOV 21, 2011
Pours a clear and copper beer with an offwhite head. The aroma is malt, caramel and hops with citrus. The flavor follows the nose. The palate is sweetness and bitterness. Overall an average beer.
