GABF 2010, really liked this. medium golden pour. Its all about the hops here. Big Simcoe? aroma & flavor. Bitterness just dominates here in a good fashion. Tons a flavor. Well done

Draft at sb. Pours a cloudy medium amber with a big rocky white head that towers over the top of the glass without leaking or dripping. Huge fresh pine and garlic nose, with heavy wet grass and bright piercing herbal notes showing. Very flashy and attention getting nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Caramel and soft lemon on the mid palate. Hops are less prevalent on the tongue than the nose, but the grassy and herbal notes show well. Pleasant herbal finish. Really good stuff.

Draft on tap at Redlight Redlight (Orlando, FL). Pours a nice well hazed golden pour, a dulled glow, touches of orange, golden glow in the body. Frothy brighter white head atop laces well, films as a nice layer. Aromas are well hopped, lemons and florals, some grass and gentle bready and doughy sweetness. Some tangerine, growing fruity hops. Earth, and some straw. Initial is really hoppy, nicely bitter with grapefruit, florals, some grass. Some fruity Amarillo fruit, gentle gumball, and soap. Oranges, tangerines, firmly assertively bitter hops up front. Middle is some fruit, crisp bready malts and straw, mellow sweetness but a big fruity hop presence from that girthy hop load. Firmly bitter and hoppy as we round the corner into the backend, melon and bitter florals, grapefruit, touches of resiny pine, dry earthy florals, good bitterness lingers on. Touch of heat, this offers some bigger ABV, mellow sweetness. Well hopped and tasty offering. Glad to finally get to try this.

Growler thanks to Will. Pours a clear gold with small frothy white head that lasts. The aroma is strong wheat grass and corn. Medium mouthfeel with nice wheat grass, floral hop lingering bitter finish. Yes.

Braudog (6014) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 9, 2013
Draft at the Birch. Golden amber with a sticky but thin top. Drinks with a definite resin-heavy hop assertiveness, but is exceptionally easy going and drinkable. The 7% ABV is somewhat evident, but not overpowering. Excellent. (#4974, 4/6/2013)

Keg @ Mekong. Hazy amber pour with a tiny white head. The nose is full of mango. Pretty bright, mild underarm. Very much the aroma of a ballsy IPA. The taste is of mellow orange sherbet. Toasted white bread. Grassy bitterness on the finish. Medium body, crisp. Pretty tasty stuff.

on tap at black back, waterbury. unclear bright golden pour with a creamy and ffrothy whtie head offering excellent retention and strong lacing. bright citrus, whole cones, herbal-grassy nobleness, gentle pine, weed, very lightly toasted maltiness - specialty, lagering fruitiness surprisingly making its way through the massive fragrant hop bill - peaches, apricots, clementines. average carbonation, light body - oily, surprisingly dry and crisp citrusy-herbal-grassy finish. balanced and very tasty. my first non-BA or perhaps hoppy lower abv brew from the bruery - for the third time, i’m surprised if not flabbergasted. dangerous drinkability.
