bottle via lushawn. pours a slightly hazed orange. fairly thick spotty white head. Nose is dry and hoppy with an earthy, almost manure-like edge. Earthy hop flavors too...more hop bitterness than malt sweetness, which is nice coming from somewhere other than the west coast...pretty dry and nicely earthy-hoppy. Body is full yet not syrupy at all and the alcohol is contained well. it may have manure qualities but i like them. Good stuff...not as good as the Surly abrasive I had before it though.

Pours a deep gold with thin white head and no lacing. Dipping my nose into this to find pineapple and mango. Nice palate that grows richer as it warms. While the flavor starts as bitter, the beer really fills will sugary caramel notes as it warms. Very nicely balanced for 100 IBU’s. No alcohol to speak of. A very nice beer.

BuckeyeSammy (540) - Palo Alto, Ohio, USA - JAN 8, 2011
Butterscotch in color with a minimal head. Not much lacing.. Flavor profile is EXTREMELY complex. For a double IPA, really unique. Balanced. Grapefruit, Floral hops, nice but low carbonation, citrus hopped back end. If I were to drink a 2xIPA for breakfast, this is the one.

Chuckaduck (645) - Highland Heights, Kentucky, USA - DEC 25, 2010
Pours an light orange-amber. Aroma is complex; earthy, floral, pine, pineapple, apricot. Taste is pretty bitter; pine, apiroct, earthy, also some sweentess. There’s also somethign I couldn’t quite place, a sort of mellow warm flavor up front - a flavor that would go well with holiday foods. Overall, pretty good.

Bomber shared by JulienHuxley.
Appearance : Hazy orange with a small white head.
Aroma : Nice mangos and some malt. Slightly bready. Resinous hops with some white sugars.
Taste : Quite resinous with notes of mangos. Notes of barley sugar candy. Finish is sharply bitter and fruity.
Overall : Very well balanced beer. Nice fruits and nice sugar. Awesome nose. Very tasty without being over the top.

hopscotch (9161) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 22, 2010
Bottle (dregs)… Vero Beach “GET YOUR RUDOLPH ON” Throwdown… Murky yellow ale with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The nose puts forth biscuit, lemon and musky, spicy, herbal hops overlaying a suggestion of worn leather. Full bodied and milky with kicked-back carbonation. Bitter as Hell. Only when this brew’s temperature approaches 70 degrees does any biscuity sweetness come in to play. Abrasively bitter finish with a lengthy, bittersweet aftertaste. Bottle courtesy of MI2CA!

shrubber85 (7594) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 19, 2010
Bottle. Orange and pine resin hops aroma. Orange-yellow color with a small head. Sweet orange malt and moderately bitter pine hops flavor. Nicely balanced. Excellent - no surprises here.
