fidelis83 (2383) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - FEB 13, 2014
Copper pour with a 1 finger, yellow beige head. Aroma is sweet citrus and caramelized tropical fruit salad right up front, booze, biscuit, caramel and a sort of sharp fruity cheese note that I cant really put my finger on, like cheddar and tart berry puree or something. Flavor is sweet caramel, pale malt, sweet berry, melon and tropical fruit, tart and bitter citrus, hot booziness, and a weird, every fruit and vegetable in the fridge put in a blender then cooked into soup taste to the finish. Medium body, syrupy, almost sticky feel throughout and medium, but sharp carbonation. Its a bit of an overly boozy, syrupy mess, but it is pretty enjoyable overall. However, at $13/4pk its definitely a poor value. Maybe $7/6pk MIGHT warrant more than one purchase.

Poured into a tulip, the appearance was a semi-hazy amber color with a fingers worth of white foamy head that fell off at a decent pace. Slight messy lace. The aroma had some piney/resin bitterness playing with some sweet biscuits/somewhat like breadiness. The flavor leaned into the malts with a sweet glance to pummel the hop tones down a little bit. Still, a nicely blended aftertaste running into the finish. The feel was about medium bodied with a decent sipping quality as the ABV felt appropriate. Carbonation felt fine. Overall, another one of those beers that I would say is an "old school DIPA." Id have again for me, but can understand why a ton of hopheads arent going to like this.

reggiedunlop (3709) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2017
Pours a hazy amber with a thick off white head. ..decent retention and lacing. Aroma has some piney, resinous hoppiness, hints of tea, and a bit if sweet grainy/biscuity notes. Flavor is bitter with rwsin and pine...some slight sweet maltiness that disappears quickly. Mouthfeel is medium and silky with a dry, resinous bitter finish that lingers. Old school feel.

Foxbush (1979) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - FEB 26, 2017
12 oz bottle from Growlers to Go, Short Pump, VA the ale poured a cloudy amber color with BIG frothy head, lacing and good retention. Aroma of bread dough and floral hops.The taste has pineapple combined with some citrus like flavors. This is a complex ale with other tastes contributing to the overall experience like honey and caramel malts. The ale has a medium body with average-fizzy carbonation. Elevated alcohol and bold bitterness make this a memorable mouthful.

Murky dark amber pour with lively white head. Subtle fresh hop aroma. Bitter bite up front followed by nice solid fresh citrus hoppiness. Its got a full mouth feel, yet light and refreshing. This is way better half-way through than I thought it would be at that first bitter sip. I really like this one a lot.

patrick767 (4047) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 4, 2016
bottle - Pours light amber and has a fruity, resinous aroma. The flavor is of course big on the hops bitterness. Its loaded with fruit character as tropical and citrus flavors come through nicely. Thats joined by some resin notes and a solid malt backbone. Very good.

Bottle to shaker. Clear honey amber in the glass. Fine off white head. Nose is a little lacking until you take a bite. Big sweet hop married to a tight lightly roasted grain bill. Smooth in mouth. Little sticky sweetness. Warming. Yummy. Deceptive for the a/v.
