fiulijn (16003) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 31, 2012
Bottle from Legacy Liquor Store, Vancouver, 8.5% ABV
Light amber color, hazy, with medium-sized head. Aroma of hops, resiny and fruity, but not fresh. Correct body strength, smooth mouthfeel; it has a good toffee and caramel flavor, with robust bitterness; the hopping is resiny, a bit citrusy; the final is strong; once more, good but it doesn’t seem to be ultra fresh. It’s a solid beer anyway, lean, not too cloying.

mcberko (8529) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 2, 2012
22 oz. bottle (8.5%), split with Matts_Property, pours a cloudy orange with a small off-white head. Aroma is pretty light, with tropical fruits, citrus and piney hops and caramel. Flavour of orange zest, caramel malts, and citrus hops, finishing off with bitter hops and some candied sugar. The flavours are a bit out of whack and with a semi-bitter edge to the finish, but this is very enjoyable.

22oz bottle, $6 from the Athens, OH Kroger. ABV Listed as 8.5%. Clear orange color. Thin, mostly white head. Good lace. Smooth, soft, lighter carbonation, kind of dry. Hops are a bit on the malty side, but are very good and flavorful. Nice bitterness, bit of malty caramel sweetness, bit of alcohol bite. A decent DIPA.

BMan1113VR (7897) - Los Angeles, California, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Bottle picked up in Vegas. Hazed golden amber hued pour with a lasting and retentive off white head. Aroma is of crystal malt, biscuity malt and an odd lactone like dill to coconut in the background. Also quite hoppy, fruity and grassy with some marmalade. Flavors are grassy with oxidation (noticeable). Faded hops, quite a bit of malt body and sweetness. Bottling issue. Well hidden alcohol. Fuller bodied with moderate carbonation.
