Bottle from BottleSelect.com. Pours bright ruddy copper with a slight dark beige head. Aroma is malty with rather earthy hop. Full bodied. Flavor is earthy/resin over rather roasted malt. There’s a slight burn. I’m betting it’s hops. Finishes more resin than earthy. Great stuff.

Bottle Thanks Chris!. Poured clear dark reddish amber color with medium frothy off-white head that was that lasted with excellent lacing. Solid complex toasted malt, citrus and pine hop aroma. Medium to full body with smooth texture with soft carbonation. Full bittersweet flavor with a medium to heavy bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration. Good brew that exceeded my expectations.

Dogbrick (9455) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Sample at 101 Beer Kitchen. The beer pours a clear deep reddish color with a medium foamy off-white head that recedes slowly. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Aroma of malt and citrusy hops. Medium to full body with flavors of grassy hops, citrus and caramel malt. The finish is moderately bitter with a fruity hops aftertaste. Pretty good overall.

DrSilverworm (8566) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - NOV 30, 2012
12oz bottle, lot 3132. Pine, orange citrus nose. Clear red color. Good thin khaki head. Leaves some lace. Good big piney hoppy flavor. Kinda spicy, some citrus. Nice big bitter taste. Light zest to this. Bigger body. Lighter crisp carbonation. Dry finish, not sticky. Very good stuff, went through mine fast. Nice spicy-piney hop aftertaste.

DocLock (8532) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2014
Draft at Drafting Room Exton. Pours hazy ruby with minimal head. Nose was vinous fruit, hops, caramel malt. Tasted of caramel malt, hops, some vinous fruit, but the hops didn’t pop. Seemed a bit flat also. Not bad, but not a world beater.

DSG (8448) - Tel Aviv, - APR 20, 2013
Bottle shared at kerenmk’s place. Clear deep red-amber with a beige head. Aroma of piney hops, a bit stale, and caramelly malt, slightly cookie-ish. Flavor has sweet chewy malt, caramelly and a bit biscuity and a bitter resinous hoppy finish with a bit of pine and light stale notes. Medium to full-bodied, a bit oily, with some alcohol. A bit too heavy.

BVery (7963) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - DEC 16, 2012
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2013 Bottle. Clear rich amber pour with a smaller light beige head. Citrus and grassy hops on aroma and taste. Quite sharp bitterness in this. Not a bad brew.

Ibrew2or3 (7489) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Poured up on tap at the Gilbert W.o.B. where it exhibits a nice looking mahogany colored body that supports a tan head that leaves behind some sheet lacing. The aroma offers up some roasted malts, pine hops and a bit of earthy sort of nutty notes. The taste hits first with malts and some malt roastiness before chocolate malts and coffee help usher in some resiny pine hops and spicy black licorice as well as mild earthy tea like notes, nice. Toward the finish the roasted malts come forward. Nice brew with plenty of hops and varied malts to keep it interesting.
