tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 30, 2008
Big bold citrus and pine in the aroma with nice round underlying malt sweetness. Clear deep golden-amber coloured body is topped by a dense, fine bubbled, off white head that leaves some lacing. Up front malt sweetness is joined by aggressive hop bitterness with cirus and floral hop flavours and fruity esters in the finish. Alcohol notable in the aftertaste as well as in the mild warming sensation. Medium full body is somewhat slick in texture. Moderate carbonation. Finally a BC beer that is fit to stand with the hop bombs made in the PNW south of the border. Tulip glass. Cellar temperature. Bottle. BCLS at Hellsgate. Dec-08.

mgermani (1000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 19, 2008
Pours a dark orange-brown with a lasting but thin head and a fantastic dry-hop aroma, very pungent and very oily. Nice malty backbone but very, very agressive hopping and a lingering, astringent, alcoholic aftertaste. Thin crisp body with good carbonation. A bit too hoppy for me, and it does not hide the alco-burn very well, but I like the concept, and it is a fun sometimes-beer. Wish Tree made this more often.

CapFlu (4598) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 13, 2008
(650ml Bottle) Purchased at Fort Street BCLS in Victoria for $6.95. Pours a lasting thin, frothy white head and a lightly carbonated deep orange body. Surprisingly muted nose - very mellow pine hops. Good malt base, tangy orange body and lasting pine finish. Good. 6/4/7/3/14
