DaSilky1 (2606) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 6, 2011
Can from Bottlecraft. Hazed orange colored beer with a large, dense, slightly off-white head. Musty hop nose of chalk dust with tropical fruit notes akin to mango and pineapple. Mellow flavors....fruity for the most part and balanced allowing some of the hop bitterness to come out a bit but with malts strong enough to make it quite fruity. Nothing out of the ordinary here and the hops kind of lose focus in the finish where the malt profile overshadows but at the same time, gets a little flimsy. Decent though I suppose.

350 ml can a bonus on a beer purchase at Country Club Liquors. Nose is big time pineapple and floral and citrus hops. Lightly hazy orange with a big pale yellow head. Flavor is contrasting sweetness and bitterness with hints of fresh pineapple.

Braudog (5876) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2011
Can. Pours with a mountain of foam that slowly and sublimely subsides in a still solidly thin topping of sticky goo. The initial aroma is light, but decidely nutty. This drinks then with a unique essence of exceptionally dry citrus peel and immature pine. (#4164, 7/12/2011)

Can from Healthy Spirits. Pours light amber with a thick off-white head and a toffee aroma. There is a solid caramel malt flavor with a bitter citrus finish. Refreshing and drinkable, but a little too harsh.

IslandHaole (1091) - Yokosuka-Shi, Kanagawa-Ken, JAPAN - NOV 4, 2010
Just found this gem in my trip to Tokyo today. Nice color, deep gold, light amber with a foamy off-white head. Toasty malts and grapefruit in the nose. A sweet cookie dough malt with piney hops, nice! Smooth feel, not too much carbonation, for a Japanese made canned beer, this is quite good!
