Strykzone (7659) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2011
Sampled at an ESBLS tasting. Pretty much a classic beer. Grapefruit and caramel. Some nice fruit. Alcohol is not noted. A nice IIPA. Wish I would have taken better notes on this one. JStax (7181) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - JUL 25, 2016
12 ounce bottle from martinvanbeer. Thanks! The beer is a clear coppwry orange with a fluffy white head of foam. Strong head retention. The aroma has notes of citrus, pine, resin, sweet vanilla. Fairly dry and herbal bitterness. Medium body, spritzy mouthfeel, higher carbonation. RobertDale (6856) - Lansing, Kansas, USA - MAR 18, 2015
12 ounce bottle. Pours a dark golden orange with a nice white head. Aroma of citrus, pine, and malt. Taste is grapefruit, other citrus, pine, and malt. Finish is bitter. OK. Braudog (6837) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - DEC 27, 2010
Bottle. Light amber color, but the beer delivers a huge floral aroma and flavor component. Bit bitter, but the floral perfume is predominate. Big DIPA, but not overpowering. (#4046, 12/16/2010) ben4321 (6739) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 6, 2011
Location: 12 oz bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 6/6/11
Inbreak (6535) - Loddefjord, NORWAY - JUL 12, 2015
Aroma: The nose is fairly citrusy, orange notes, a bit of candied sugar, and floral hop notes
Appearance: It pours a pretty much clear orange color with a frothy beige head and some lace
Flavor: The taste is fairly sweet for the style, orange candy sweetness, citrus and floral hops
Palate: The body is medium (plus), and it kind of coats the mouth with a lasting, cloying feel to it
I guess ye ole description could use an update, as this one is available in 12 oz bottles (I would know as I am currently drinking one). Anyway, this was actually rather solid. Considering that this is one of the (very) few breweries in a beer-lacking state, I wasn’t really expecting much from them, but so far their stuff has not been too bad. I’ll keeping drinking Diamond Bear brews when I’m in town.

Tiny shortlasting head. Aroma is grainy, wet grain, worth, hay, grass, nuts, cereal, caramel, broth. Taste is harsh, weeds, hay, dried grain, harsh grass, bark. Medium bitterness, harsh watery mouthfeel. Meh!
(Clear growler thanks to BarZigKin) Pours clear orange with an oily head that fades fast. Nose of chlorine, honey and pineapple. Taste is lightly bitter, pineapple, caramel, and peppery. Finish is lightly carbonated, bready, sweet and cloying. Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - FEB 5, 2010
Thanks to barzigkin for sharing this growler.
Pours golden orange with a white head. The aroma is strong grapefruit with some pine and orange notes. The flavor is similar with strong grapefruit, orange and pine hop flavors as well as some nice hop bitterness. Thin-medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. rumproasts (6035) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - SEP 27, 2012
Tap. Golden with one finger head. Soapy and bitter. Light hops. I can’t believe someone recommended this to me. This is awful. Are all beers in AR complete shit?
