writerljberg (650) - Oregon, USA - MAY 19, 2014
Bottle. I have forgotten who sent this, but thank you anyway. A: Dark brown with red hints. big fluffy cappuccino head. Threatens to kill my glass. N: Blast of oak and hops. Spruce, caramel, toffee, red licorice, pineapple, and other tropical fruits. T: Intense bitterness only slightly rounded off by sweetness. Alcohol starts here. M: And blows up here. Thick body, creamy and carbonated, then more alcohol. More, more, more. O: Blowing beer up to twice its original size works in some cases. It doesn’t for pilsners, berliner weisses, and such. In this case, it also fails. It’s not a waste of money, but it’s not worth your cash, either.

Dogbrick (7634) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 18, 2014
Sample at Kurtkeller 012: Bruery-tastic 01 on 05/16/2014. Murky brownish-amber color with a thick foamy light beige head that dissipates slowly. Patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, floral hops and caramel. Full-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, citrus, hops and oak. The finish is rich and malty with a citrusy aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

Blairgus (2561) - California, USA - MAY 14, 2014
14 may 2014, tap at the Bruery. Light amber. Nose is big grassy dry hops, like inhaling dried hops in your hand. Moderate oakiness as well. Med body and moderately fizzy. Really nice. Has a nice dry woodiness, grassy hops, moderate alcohol, all well balanced. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hopscotch (8861) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 20, 2014
Bottle... Mostly clear, deeply golden ale with a small, off-white head. The aroma offers malty caramel and piney, grapefruity hops. Full-bodied with modest carbonation. The flavor is equally malty and hoppy – nice balance of caramel and citrus rind. The aftertaste is fairly bitter. Bottle provided by biggsbowler!

hopdog (8796) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 14, 2014
750ml bottle. Poured a cloudy amber color with an off white head. Malty ... caramel, toffee, dark fruits, and some lighter citrus. Would liked to have tried this fresh as the hops definitley seemed to have died down.

crossovert (6970) - Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2014
Bottle, strong booze element, very fruity, oxidation notes, it is decent but not in large quantities.

Sammy (8395) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 16, 2014
On tap at The Breury. Nicely done, hops come through strongly and complex. More hops than malt.

GG (2039) - NorCal, California, USA - NOV 22, 2013
On tap at 10 East. This is a pretty intense beer. Huge pine and citrus notes nicely balanced by the sweet caramel and white sugar notes in both the aroma and flavor. Spiced flavor reminds me of fruitcake meets a rich port. A little unbalanced but still packing tons of flavor.

merc7186 (1981) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - NOV 15, 2013
A: Deep Red, Brownish Hue, White Head Ring, Passes Mild Hue S: Oaky, Super Malty, Mild Citrus T: Heavy Bready Malts, Sweet Malts, Mild Citrus M: Average Carbonation, Medium Bodied, Mildly Sweet Overall, the malt base on this one is huge and almost over powers the hop character.

GT2 (8270) - San Diego County, California, USA - OCT 31, 2013
750mL shared at Congregation Azusa. Pours a clear, deep red amber. Spotty lace. Nose is imperial red IPA style with big toffee, spuce, pine sap hops. Caramelized malt, toffee, mild oak pepper as well. Taste is spruce, toffee, hop resin. Palate balanced, hoppy. More of a red IPA in that sense.
