MattShizzle (553) - Bernville, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle - no idea what batch this is as it doesnít say on the case or the bottle. Medium copper color - clear. Somewhat hoppy but clean aroma. Quite bitter with some interesting malt and hop flavors. Pretty good.

Iphonephan (4039) - McLean, Virginia, USA - APR 16, 2015
From a 12 oz bottle. Pours a clear copper with an off white head. Malty nose. Flavors of grass and caramel with just a hint of citrus.

joejames (306) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 4, 2015
Bottle (of batch 4, I think) to shaker glass. Pours amber orange, two finger off white head. Nice lacing, some retention. Aroma of pine and light citrus. Taste is moderately bitter, lightly sweet. Medium light body, soft carbonation, slightly resin sticky mouth feel. Finishes moderately bitter. Tasting notes of caramel, mango, lemon zest, spruce and wildflowers. Itís not a bad batch, whatever batch it might be.

Pretty standard IPA. American style hops present. Pretty short lived experience.

Dogbrick (9156) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2014
Going with batch #4 despite no labeling to that effect. The beer pours a slightly cloudy copper color with a medium foamy white head that recedes gradually. Sticky strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrus, hops and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, citrus and caramel malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

Goodgrief (1842) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Bottle. I guess itís Batch 4 since thatís the latest and I just bought it? Pour was copper colored with little head. An odd aroma and flavor that I canít place. Some citrus, pine and that odd chemical cleaner type flavor. Itís not pleasant. Moderate bitterness, dry on the tongue. This could have been really good.

Beergeek23322 (2595) - Chesapeake, Virginia, USA - NOV 1, 2014
10/29/2014. On tap at the brewery. Amber with a white head. Malty caramel aromas with citrus. A bit mellow without too much hops.

ramboraffe (992) - GŲteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 27, 2014
355 ml bottle. Hazy orange with white head. Smell is hoppy pine and grapefruit. Taste is bitter citrus zest, pine and floral. Dry with medium bitterness and medium carbonation.

EithCubes (5205) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 22, 2014
Bottled as "Fourplay," no space between four and play, take not please, people! Searching is hard sometimes.

Nose leafy green hops with light wood and citrus, medium caramel and a little dough. Pours orange-amber, faintly hazy with a large rocky beige head. Light-medium body, medium bitterness with sharp, bright citrus and medium-strong caramel and dough. Hops suppressed a bit but thereís actually a pretty good hop-malt balance without the benefit of any spice or fruit or toasty character. Malt is, however, one-dimensionally thin and boring, as is the overall rubbery finish and aftertaste. Flabby beer, clean, but Iím done.

kramer (5346) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 7, 2014
12 oz bottle. Pours a clear copper body with a nice frothy beige head that left some delicate lace. The nose is too heavy on the malt for my tastes, though thereís sufficient hops in here as well. It just smells like itís going to be sweet. The flavor is indeed overly sweet with lots of caramel and brown sugar sweetness from from to back, and lingers really long on the finish. Moderate hop flavor with just a light bitterness. Medium bodied with a sticky and clingy residual sweetness and soft fizzy carbonation. Canít say that I care for this one. Probably my least favorite her from Stoudtís in a long time.

DrSilverworm (8151) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 27, 2014
12oz bottle, from Dutchís. No date or code or batch # indicated anywhere on the bottle as far as I can tell, but this was just shipped from the distributor this week so Iím assuming itís the most recent batch... Pours a mostly clear amber red orange color. A finger of off-white head. Decent good ridges of lace. Medium to bigger body. Smooth, kind of soft / crisp lighter carbonation. Slick finish. Bready biscuity kind of caramel malt up front. Kind of piney, earthy herbal hop flavor. Moderate to bigger bitter taste, light to moderate sweet taste. Kind of soft and malty, but taste is satisfyingly bitter and the malt isnít so bad. Good to pair with my sandwich.
