Scrapersnbeer (1466) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 19, 2012
Knotty hops ride high over a backbone of butterscotch malts. I remember their brown ale having this feature as well. Caramel amber color, a small amount of lace. Sharp bitter hop flavor, does not contrast with the low lying vanilla laced malts. Comes off as kind of soapy really. Body is what you gather from that. Could be better, although that zany fish seems pretty happy.

Got this in a multipack, nothing here but sweet. Did they forget to add hops? I may have to blend the other two bottles with something biting just to get through them.

AirForceHops (2975) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 5, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Bronze / copper color with small fast disappearing head. Aroma of grain and a wisp of pine. Flavor is sweet grain, butter and a dead hop that wants to be pine. It really, really wants to be pine. Thin watery body with a diacetyl finish. Well thankfully I had this at a buddy’s house, so I didn’t pay for it. Below average.

Very nice balance with a smooth hoppiness. Pours a dark golden with a very thin head. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

warhawk91 (298) - Newington, Connecticut, USA - JAN 18, 2014
12 oz. bottle. Pours a pretty orangish rusty color, unfiltered. Off white head that diminishes pretty quickly. Not much lacing. Smell is caramel, citrus and mild hops. Taste is nice, caramel notes with pineapple and a mildly bitter hop profile. Aftertaste slightly bitter and citrusy. To me this is quite a bit better than the majority of the ratings I've read. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ROGUE (2085) - Newark, Delaware, USA - OCT 1, 2013
12oz bottle. Pours a very clear copper color with small white head. Faint aroma of sweet caramel malt and a light citrus hops aroma. Taste is sweet caramel malt, slightly grainy with a light grapefruit hop touch. Lighter body with moderate prickly carbonation.

OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 30, 2013
A - Pours a clear amber with a big bubbled small head. No lacing. S - Citrus with a kind of rotten buttery diacetyl. Some toffee malt underneath T - Bitter orange with butter diacetyl. Some strawberry and cherry fruit. Herbal mint comes through towards the and and finishes with sweaty socks and grain like aftertaste. M - Medium carbonation, slightly prickly. Well this might of had potential to be a nice APA, but unfortunately the diacetyl is heavy handed and takes over most of the flavors. Pretty bad. Serving type: bottle 01-14-2011

BMMillsy (1267) - Florida, USA - MAR 3, 2013
Bottle from beer of the month club. Pours ruby with small head. Aroma is interesting. Strong citrus and floral hops mixed with buttery caramel malt. Very buttery smell. Flavor follows the smell closely. Very floral hop flavor here, similar profile to Celebration, but with a buttery caramel addition. Strange finish of malt though. Lightish mouthfeel with adequate prickle from the carbonation. Not bad.

VALIS (222) - Nashua, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 17, 2013
UPDATED: FEB 20, 2013 I’m happily out of step with the crowd on this one, I think this is a very solid beer. Cloudy burnt orange color, pungent hop aroma and nice bitter/sour taste without being overpowering.
