Bottle shared by Springslicker. Pours orange with a thin off-white head that leaves good lacing. Aromas of grass, vegetables, with a hoppy background. The flavor has caramel and citrus hop backing. Medium body, light bitterness. Not as impressive as the 10th Anniversary. doubleo (1432) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 2, 2008
22oz bottle. Pours amber with a thin, offwhite head, specks of lace. Smells malty with caramelly dark citrus hops and some alcohol. Tastes malty sweet with caramelly hops, some citrus, some bitterness. Full body, ok carbonation. Ughsmash (7502) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 23, 2008
Bomber. Poured medium golden with a short-lived cap of eggshell head. The aroma showcased floral hoppage over a pale malt base.. grassy notes and honey were secondary.. rich sweet undertones of caramel and some light fruits.. smelled syrupy and heavy, but rather enticing. The flavor opened with tangy floral bitterness and lightly medicinal/metallic sourness.. warm caramel and pale malts washed over the middle in a smooth fashion with scratchy bitterness on its heels (in the form of peppery spicage and floral notes).. overall bitterness was low-moderate.. finished with a hit of citrus sourness and alcohol warmth. Medium-plus bodied with a few instances impeding the flow.. felt a little past its prime. Darkover (1545) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - SEP 22, 2008
Hazy amber color with a medium biege head. Aroma of caramel malt, berries and some piney hops. Flavor of tangy hops and sweet caramel malts. JK (6380) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - SEP 6, 2008
Bitter malt. Some hops in the aroma, but mostly malt. Flavor is just a little sweet and is balanced by a strange bitterness with flavor I can’t recognize.

HARSH and of grapefruit and metal at first. very good body of caramel that is slick and almost moderatley sweet. very good balance and still intense with the enthusiasts understanding of a good malt presence with none of the overall mistakes that over malting tends to yield. yeasty so much so you almost taste the Belgian cousin that this beer has posessed. this beer settles into a calming brew. tangy and chalky it remains but redifined in stillness. a bad date beer or an overidulgent prick brew. enjoy!

Bomber poured into pint glass. This was a middle of the road DIPA. Sweeter malt flavors with caramel and chewy mouthfeel. Worth drinking again yet others in this style are more enjoyable. Ramenen (466) - San Salvador, EL SALVADOR - AUG 9, 2008
Thanks to Juancho. Drank it in Panajachel, Guatemala. Pours nice orange and hazy. Nice initial taste, however it goes flat at the middle and the end of the mouth. gunhaver (1030) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2008
Bottle. Pours a caramel color, with creamy vanilla head, and thin braids of lacing. Aroma is of wet leaves, corn, some elements of grassy hops, hay. Subdued overall. Bright floral kick to the flavor, grass, sweet citrus, pepper, some hay. Fairly malty. Bitter bite, fairly subtle flavor profile overall. Has a tangy alcohol vibe. afterglow (1047) - Florida, USA - JUL 10, 2008
Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy copper with a one finger mostly lasting white head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of pine, citrus, and floral hops with a good dose of sweet malt and caramel to back it up. Taste is the same as aroma with a ton of hops in the begining and sweet malt and caramel in the finish. Medium full mouthfeel with a moderate amount of bitterness and smooth alcohol. This beer deserves a much higher score. Very good.
