Lubiere (9939) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 23, 2011
A hazy amber ale with a thin lacing white head. A pleasant floral hops aroma, classic, a bit piney, with caramel notes. In mouth, a smooth IPA with light malts, smooth hopping, medium bodied. On tap at Cigar City, Jan. 5 2011.

hopscotch (9120) - Indian River County, Florida, USA - FEB 4, 2011
Draft… Clear amber ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The nose provides toffee, light caramel, medium roast grains and not a whole lot of hops, although there is a unassuming floral note. Medium to full-bodied and mildly creamy with dancing carbonation. The flavor is clean and caramely with only moderate bitterness. Crisp, mildly caramely, lightly bitter finish. Flawless in execution, but this is more along the lines of a very good American pale ale or amber ale.

adnielsen (9032) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Fucken can @ home, courtesy of DrewFace. Cheers Flo Rida bro! Pours a hazy dark reddish orange appearance with a big butterscotch, nutty, burnt malty, strong aroma. Flavor is a touch better with at least a touch of citrus but still full of butter and pancakes. Bitter, bland hops. Yikes.

GT2 (8380) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAY 2, 2011
Tap at Farrah’s in Gainesville, FL. The pour is a hazed strawberry iced tea amber with a small, dense, rocky, yellow. Nice retention and sheety lace. Aroma is fresh melon, sort of funky citrus and potpourri reminiscent of some mild sour beers or even mild Brett beers. The taste is cinnamon, lemon, bitter grapefruit and orange peel. The body is ultra malt forward with so much body and richness it is nearly impossible to drink. Palate is a little chalky. Overall I just don’t know how you are even supposed to drink this. Abv is verging on DIPA and sugar content is probably out the roof. A pint of this is just way too much.

Dogbrick (8023) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Sample at Redlight Redlight. The beer is a hazy amber-gold color with a medium thin white head that dissipates steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Notes of malt and citrusy hops in the nose. Medium-bodied with a moderately bitter hops character and flavors of citrus and bready malt. The finish is piney hops with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Decent overall.

Ibrew2or3 (6861) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 26, 2010
Draft @ FBGBF ’010. Pours deep gold with some haze and thin off white head. The modest aroma is peppered with pine and somewhat grassy hops with some citrus hops around the edges. The aroma is on the mild side but very inviting nonetheless. The taste is nice and forward and full of pine and citrus hops with a thin layer of malty sweetness there for support. The taste remains solid pine and resin and citrus along the edges well into the finish.

Scopey (6754) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2013
Tap at Dahlia’s Pour House. It pours clear amber with a medium white head. The nose is earthy, wood, toast, hay and a touch of flavour. The taste is bitter pine, earth, floral, light toast, light caramel, resin and nectarine with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smooth, well-balanced and rather drinkable.

Swamp Head, wow these guys sure are the up coming success brewery in FL. This beer is another example of great craft beer. Draft. Pours dark brown/cloudy amber, thick frothy off-white head. Aroma light roasted malts, hints of grassy hops and citrus, berry/bready like sweetness. Flavor,found this one to have a nice roasted, caramel mouthfeel, bready, light citrus/grapefruit/tropical touch. Lingering sweetness Little dry hopped and roasted finish, Overall palate has a nice warming touch, and nothing gets overly bitter. Drinks smooth. Tasty!
