On draught. Dry, hoppy and good. Flavoursome, but Iím not sure its one for a session.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7450) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2016
Sampled on draft at the Frederick MD location this beer poured a hazy dark golden-peach color with a huge foamy white head that left excellent lacing. The aroma was tart with lemon and grapefruit elements. The flavor was tobacco, sour caramel, grapefruit and cactus. Long finish. Medium body. Ok.

paintedmaple (671) - Peopleís Republic of Bloomington, Indiana, USA - FEB 24, 2016
No "hop storm" here...just a beer that might be considered average if you were dying of thirst. No need to bother with this one again.

desurfer (1302) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - JAN 16, 2016
Draft. Mildly hoppy but with a real off-putting soapy/chemical taste. Bad sample or just not good.

rlgk (18841) - GŲteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 31, 2015
Draught at BJ:s Restaurant and Brewhouse, Brea. Clear golden beer with a nice lasting offwhite/yellowish head. Fruity hop aroma, grassy, peach, pine, some caramel. Hoppy grape and pine flavor, peach, grassy bitterness, oranges, caramel, someone apples. Quite ok.

UDBeernut (2858) - Saint Johns, Florida, USA - OCT 21, 2015
On tap in Kentucky. Pours golden Amber, major haze, think off white head that is silly. Minimal nose. Taste is massive tropical... Pineapple, oranges, mango. Slight bitterness. Light body.

Aggiebob (1017) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - OCT 6, 2015

Zymurgeist2 (2082) - Redwood City, California, USA - SEP 22, 2015
On tap at San Bruno location. Aromas of bread, decaying pine needles and slight molasses. Poured mostly clear orange with white head. Taste was assertive chewy bread malt. Faint orange and dirty forest floor. Mouthfeel was a cloying - surprisingly so for the ABV. A disappointment after enjoying the Oktoberfest.

phaleslu (9854) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Draft served in a flight at the local brewpub. Pours a somewhat cloudy gold with an off-white head that leaves a sheet of lace and a spotty film behind. Sweet and malty and grainy. Orange, macaroon, grass, and florals provide some balance, but itís all over the place. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation. The mouthfeel starts muddled, gets too sweet in the middle, and finishes with a bit of bitterness. After some good pale ales, this one is a total mess. Maybe six hops are too many.

hopscotch (10951) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 22, 2015
Draft... Pours clear and amber with a small, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The aromatic standouts are piney resin and floral blossoms. Medium-bodied with zippy carbonation. The flavor is pleasantly bitter and tongue-numbing. Earthy and spicy hops in this east coast-style IPA. Finishes moderately bitter, slightly raspy and dry.
