BeerandBlues2 (13056) - Escondido, California, USA - JUL 20, 2011
22-oz. bottle. Pours lightly hazy rich copper with a huge, frothy and sticky off-white to light gold head, long retention (still over an inch after 5 minutes), and excellent lacing. The bubbles are tiny and slow-to-rise. Aroma is immediate fresh, fragrant fruity and floral hops, light notes of peppery alcohol, subdued caramel and honey malts, and an apricot essence near the end. The flavor starts out too heavy and hot on the alcohol, which is surprising for an 8% ABV beer. Heavy hop flavors of grass and flowers peek through the alcohol and there is a hint of sweet malt under it all. The alcohol really dries out the finish and leaves some hop bitterness behind. Medium body though the alcohol makes it seem thinner, heavy warmth, and medium carbonation. I had high hopes for this beer based on its appearance and aroma, but it really falls apart after that.

blankboy (7634) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 27, 2016
[Bottle (12oz)] Pours a hazy copper-gold with an average size lasting frothy white head. Some lacing. Aroma is grainy, bready, fruity and hoppy along with some vegetal notes, light sugary sweetness and a bit of alcohol. Flavours fruity and hoppy but also bready. Alcohol is fairly well hidden. Average to medium bodied. Its good, not great, just good.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7619) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2012
i wonder if this was an old bottle as the hops were really subdued. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a medium caramel color with a medium sized foamy tan head that left decent lacing. The aroma was sweet caramel, moderate pine and grapefruit. The flavor was tangy caramel and nut with notes of grapefruit, pine and black tea. Medium length sour and tangy finish with lingering nut, caramel and hops. Medium body. Ok.
