Scopey (8036) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 27, 2012
Bottle from a trade with George. It pours clear orange with a medium white head. The nose is pine, orange, tangerine, mango, touch of marmalade and some creaminess. The taste is grapefruit, mango, resin, spice, pine, assertive bitterness, alcohol, earth and light metal with very long bitter-dry finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. Flavoursome, good bitterness and well balanced. As usual these guys deliver.

DrSilverworm (7782) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 3, 2013
22oz bottle, shared with friends. Clear red / orange color. Thin half-finger off-white head. Awesome citrusy biscuity grapefruit hop aroma. Good lace. Medium / bigger body. Dry texture. Good lighter crisp carbonation. More dry texture. The later pours for my friends looked WAY different than my pour, much less red-looking with all the yeast particles included, and even tasted a bit more balanced than my portion, I think. Nice zesty taste, big assertive bitterness. Good citrus hops. Awesome stuff.

deyholla (7460) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 6, 2012
Bottle. Pours a clear orange amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of grapefruit and earthy pine with some underlying rye and citrus. Flavor starts with rye and earthy pine but is joined by resin and grapefruit.

DSG (7456) - Tel Aviv, - MAY 30, 2013
Bottle shared at a tasting at the Beer & Beyond shop. Hazy orange with an off-white head. Aroma of "green" hops, a bit citric and piney, with light rye spiciness and some malt. Sweetish malty flavor with some rye spiciness, lots of citric hops and a nice bitter finish. Medium-bodied. Good stuff.

Ibrew2or3 (7260) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 24, 2013
22oz high shoulder bottle courtesy of StFun pours with an opaque orange copper body that supports a nice looking off white head of foam. The aroma offers up citrus notes of tangelo and getting into some grapefruit with a dash of lemon. These aromatic notes are deepened by thin streams of sweet maltiness. The taste is rich and deliciously bold with malt sweetened grapefruit as well as a mix of tangelo and orange. The citrus hops get progressively more bitter to midway. This is just yummy richness from front to back with a pleasing degree of balance as well.

Ughsmash (7251) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 5, 2013
Nomber. Poured medium golden with a creamy, well-retained eggshell head.. nice lacing. The aroma picked up a whole helluva lot of mango, with pineapple and peppery rye also showing.. loved it! The flavor found sweet tropical fruit and biscuity malts at the core.. juicy mango, pineapple, black pepper, and rye around.. lots of tropical fruit bitterness and rye on the long, belly-warming finish. Medium-bodied, juicy, and engaging on the palate.. great stuff!

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - NOV 23, 2012
Bottle shared by nuplastikk: pours a clear bright golden with a stringy lacing white head. Has a fresh resiny hoppy nose with some light malty sweetness. Starts with good fullness and sweet light caramel with lots of fresh hop flavor and resiny bitterness before a drier bittersweet finish. Well-balanced and enjoyable.

phaleslu (7107) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 30, 2013
22 oz. bottle via local trade. Pours a cloudy golden color with a small white head. Notes of pine, sweet and biscuity malts, rye, and citrus peel. Light-medium bodied, with a bitter, resinous mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Nothing stands out here quite like in the Rye’d Da Lightning, which I liked a bit better than this one. It was cleaner and worked better for me.

olio (6896) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2013
65 cl bottle.
Pours golden color with a small head, some small particles floating around. Aroma of floral hops, toffee, sweetish fruits and resin. Flavor of resiny hops, goose berries, some caramel and mild rye. Sweetish fruity palate with a mild toffee finish. A bit disappointing and stuffy.
