COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Originally, this intensely hopped ale was brewed in the 18th century to survive the long sea journey from the cooler breweries in England, around the Cape of Africa to India where the temperatures were too warm to brew. This beer has a unique floral aroma from the generous addition of Cascade hops to the fermenter in a procedure known as dry hopping.

Can shared at the Scopey 5K tasting. Picked up at the Good Bottle Co. in Charlotte, NC. Pours clear gold with a white cream head. Bready nose with bits of ripe orange. Medium sweet flavor with further bready malts, light dried orange, perhaps some leaves and pine. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Light rindy orange bitterness to finish, dry bread, pine needles. OK.

Can split at Scopey’s 5K Extravaganza of Oompah Band meets doorbell music, thanks to LKS - 15/02/14. Lightly hazed golden amber with a moderate off white covering/spotting. Nose is caramel malt, earthy, orange, light citrics. Taste comprises light hops, caramel malts, orange pith, grass. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, semi drying close.

Scopey (16274) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 15, 2014
Can, thanks to Leighton. It pours clear amber with a small white head. The nose is sweaty, musty, urine, orange and fart. The taste is orange, tangerine, grapefruit peel, doughy underlying sweetness, resin and dirt with a dry finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smells pretty nasty, but taste is OK.

scotchzombie (621) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - NOV 13, 2013
Pours golden and slightly orange with just a rim of head and good wet lacing. Aroma is minimal and indistinct; maybe some bread and spice. Taste is bread, mild pine, hops and all bitter on the back half. No citrus or depth of flavor. Innocuous; OK. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

PorterPounder (8363) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - OCT 25, 2013
Albany, Ga. - Warehouse Package Store - 12 oz can. Medium orange pour, slightly hazy, thick eggshell white head that leaves a fair amount of lacing. Aroma has a hint of spruce with some ripening fruit funkiness. Flavor has some nice bittersweet citrus notes, some apricot sweetness, some orange marmalade. Mouthfeel is thick enough. Not bad, needs some polish.
