LiebeBier (808) - Annapolis, Maryland, USA - NOV 27, 2009
Label is great, for what that is worth. Sort of a cross between an Imperial IPA and American Strong. Over the top sweet malt flavor with a healthy supply of Hops.

AWISLguy (1753) - Wisconsin, USA - JUL 20, 2015
Bomber from Liquor Central in the Dells, shared with Eric. Amazed for the number of times seen, never have had. Sweet fruit, some spices and earthy malts. Earthier and maltier down through the glass. Not near Three Floyds best. 12.8

Itzjerm (1677) - Taft, Tennessee, USA - JUN 24, 2015
Interesting. The best way to put this. I can sense the super strong English hop. The result a cardboard box hop light licourious. Better than sounds. Goodness more associated with unique flavor. Light English hop aroma fading head. Fuzzy thick on tongue. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Fratto (2835) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JUN 26, 2015
On tap at First Draft. Cloudy yellow pour with a white head. Aroma is alcohol, toasted bread, flowers, and dirt. Taste is bitter, alcohol, more toast, and an earthy finish.

Weezel (238) - Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2015
Nice aromas of toasty grain, melon and some pine resin. Burnt orange color. Taste is unique with fruity IPA standing out and bouncing to some nice bready malt and then the oak finishes things off and smoothes things out. Very good.

superspak (3397) - Michigan, USA - MAY 29, 2015
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 5/4/2015. Pours lightly hazy/cloudy bright orange/amber color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big lemon, orange, pineapple, apricot, pear, apple, pepper, pine, light oak, caramel, toasted bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of earthy hops, fruity yeast, and bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big lemon, orange, pineapple, apricot, pear, apple, pepper, pine, light oak, caramel, toasted bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness. Good amount of earthy spicy/piney bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of lemon, orange, pineapple, apricot, pear, apple, pepper, pine, light oak, caramel, toasted bread, herbal, grass, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Damn nice complexity, robustness, and balance of earthy hops, fruity yeast, and bready malt flavors; with a crisp malt/yeast/hop balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, fairly crisp/sticky, and slightly creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with a light warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is an excellent English IPA. All around great complexity, robustness, and balance of earthy hops, fruity yeast, and bready malt flavors; and very smooth to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering

emusche (57) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 13, 2015
Pours copper with white head that thins to a collar. Aromas are very faint traces of mango and pine. Taste is subtle hops that fades to bitter. Very drinkable, but nothing stands out about it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
