HOPSHUNTER (742) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 22, 2010
Guest tap @ CCB. Poured a clear, light amber with a thin white head. Nose is very fruity with big citus notes as well as some resnous pine notes. Medium to full body with a smooth mouth feel. Flavor is caramel and toffee with notes of floral hops, pine, citrus, and light vanilla. Probably the most enjoyable Dunedin beer I’ve had. kiefdog (1826) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 31, 2009

Thanks IBrew2or3 for this one (if it was not for Dave I would still be close to 500 rates- he’s the man!). Pours orange-yellow with a white head. Nose is orange, peach, apricot, caramel, and a vanilla that shows its head and then quickly retreats like a groundhog. Flavor is caramel, orange, grapefruit, honey, and again that hiding, yet evanescent vanilla sweetness. medium-bodied with lingering caramel and sweetness. This is probably the best beer I have had from Dunedin. Thoroughly enjoyable. gkost (1069) - Alaska, USA - AUG 15, 2009
Growler courtesy of Ibrew2or3. Probably the best beer I have ever had from them. Pours orange. Nose is sweet caramel, alcohol, toffee, popcorn, citrus and loads of grapefruit and lemon. Flavor is a good amount of wood, citrus fruits, toffee and caramel. Good mouthfeel. Very nice offering. Ibrew2or3 (8808) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - AUG 8, 2009
On tap at the Dunedin Brewery. Pours deep copper with gold just at the edges of the glass and white head with modest sheet lacing. The first swig is, hey, this almost tastes barrel aged. It seems to start out with sweet malts bleeding into sweet booze enhanced molasses, buttery diacetyl and caramel. By midway I get smooth hop notes coming to the surface creating a thin layer of sweet citrus. The aroma is dry oak mixing with a rye twang and moving toward molasses and a sense of a vague hop tingle near the end of the draw. After it warmed a bit the taste started to mirror the nose with a pulse of oak and thick molasses sweetness and a modest rye twang. It finishes with lingering dry oak chips. This brew has lots of flavor going on.

One of my top rated Dunedin beer.
Pours hazy orange with finger thick beige head.
Contrary to the earlier Oak aged IPA this version had a lot more carbonation.
Aroma, sweet floral hops with hints of rye and a good boozy whiskey scent. Some malt / caramel elements to be noted and light citrus.
Taste, full bodied, medium carbonation, some thick rye mouthfeel with warming whiskey. Warming palate with the hops adding a very touch of bitterness though not being too overpowering.
Wood / bourbon blends very well and the extra rye IPA complements this amazing beer. Noted some lingering malt profile with hints of caramel and rye giving the beer a smooth palate.
