dnstone (2516) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JUN 9, 2016
Piney hoppy aroma. Hazed golden in color with a white head. Tastes dry and piney-hoppy. It is deceptively strong. Notes: On tap at the brewery during GABF week ’15

CloakedDagger (1813) - - JUN 1, 2016
Can 35,5 cl. Pours a clear golden with a lacing, white head. Very intense aroma hops, gets almost perfumy, but extremely typical US-style. Rich, sweet, malty body. The good hops prevail throughout, but the whole thing gets a little cloying towards the end, AND rather boozy. Still however a very nice DIPA. 010616

Copper colored pour from the can. Taste is hops, dough, pine needles, wood and a nice hit of booze. Well done!!

Big ol’ can (like yo mama). Cloudy copper color with a thick, lacy, foamy white head. Sticky tangerine, honeydew melon, and sugar malt notes. Sweet malt flavor, sugar syrup, and a citrus hop finish. Fairly syrupy and sticky on the feel. Fairly full body. Enjoyable beer.

scooterbub (1008) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - OCT 18, 2015
Pint+ can. Pours an unclear golden orange with a two inch beige head that slowly collapses. Taste is of malt, citrus, hops, pine, resin, dark fruit and caramel. Has a similar aroma. Has a sticky body that coats the mouth. Easy to drink, especially considering the alcohol. Easily one of the best beers I have had in a while.
