Red pour, off white head. Aroma? All resinous christmas trees and some sweet sticky caramel malts. Big bold and overpowering resin with some malts that get lost in the liquid pine trees. UnionBeerCzar (82) - Michigan, USA - NOV 29, 2012
On tap at the Union Woodshop, crystal clear coppery red with minimal head. Bouquet is hoppy with sweet caramely notes dominating. Drinks like a DIPA with a sweet malt backbone, alcohol certainly present. I would call it slightly "hot" with itís boozy presence most obvious on the back end. The composition for this beer feels a bit muddled, no negativity implied, fun and different + bitchin spinal tap reference of course. The finish is really were itís at super complex and lingeringness. Tubular broken bells way awesome rad GranvilleTim (1855) - Granville, Illinois, USA - NOV 26, 2012
Deep amber pour with a tan head. Aroma is fruity hops with a toasty malt back. Tate is a dominate hop flavor. piny and a toasted malt in the background. Aftertaste is hops. It is a hoptastic beer. boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 26, 2012
Bottle from mariís. Pours clear reddish copper with a small white head that quickly dissipates. This guy smells hoppy to the max with tons of citrus and some malt. The taste is medium bitter with a nice citrus kick at the finish. For the alcohol, this is very drinkable. jstraw (1967) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 26, 2012
Draft at Jerryís. Orange-amber with big, creamy, beige head / Rich nose of caramel, cut pine, weed, and citrus / Medium to full body, lush and creamy, sweet, big malts make this only moderately biting with beautiful balance, and lightly bitter finish / Flavors of caramel, cut pine, orange, grapefruit / Just great, with a superb body.

First beer of the afternoon over at Mattís .. . pours a deep amber .. . mild head, lacing is radical .. . deep sap, red wood, and odd caramel .. . large mouth but with a fast finish .. . a nice beer but nothing all that exciting .. . . Itís basically like youíre shooting a free throw, and then you miss, and someone punches you right in the nose. TheHOFF43 (2052) - Robbinsdale, Minnesota, USA - NOV 23, 2012

Thanks Jeff. craftfreak (13) - USA - NOV 21, 2012
This beer is quite remarkable. It hides the 11% remarkably. Great lacing, gorgeous amber hues. Hops are aggressive but tight and defined. Malty toasted afterthoughts maybe a honey sweetness. Great beer... Get one while you can.
