This beer is way over the top. First it wallops you with a huge hop resin and cat box aromas. The you put it in your mouth and it is thick and sticky. Too much. Then the hot alcohol notes hit you with an uppercut. Finally it all fades into a hit bitter finish that sticks around longer than youd would like it to. Its not bad. Just overly aggressive. Save it for the hop fiends.

Gerbeer (3593) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 6, 2017
650 ml bottle. Pours amber with light head. Aromas of caramel, dough malts, and mashed fruit. Flavors follow same with light citrus and a bit of tea (stale hops). A nice enough malt bomb though.

650ml bottle at Brians office. 2017 edition. Pours a slightly hazy golden with a white head. Aroma is malty, candied oranges. Same taste. Slightly hot (as it is 12%, hehe). Sweet and hoppy bitter aftertaste. Nice.

Oakes (17172) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 18, 2017
Hazy light tan. Thin head, touch of bubbles. The aroma is a bit on the woody side in terms of hops that are a touch stale. The malts are sweet, smelling chewy, and theres definitely some alcohol. Lots of alcohol on this one...quite boozy...lots of sweet malts, and a massive bitterness. Its not super bright, and seems a bit strong for me, in terms of being a bit unbalanced.

Capa (3201) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - APR 4, 2017
Deep copper with a white head. Powerful caramel malt with a large dose of hops underneath. Very sweet. Any hop notes are dumbed down by the malt. Full bodied sugar bomb.

Bomber. Caramel malt aroma with notes of grapefruit, pine and a little bit of tropical fruit hops. Pours clear amber colored with a large off white head that has excellent retention and lacing. Starts with sweet caramel malt and some tropical fruit hop flavors. Finishes dry with grapefruit and piney hop bitterness but ends quite smooth considering the style and has just a bit of booze at the very end. Pretty good stuff.

kyzr (1469) - Montana, USA - MAR 19, 2017
Pours hazy copper with off white head. Aroma is orange, sweet malt with touch of honey. Taste is piney with a grapefruit and sweet malt. Nice bit hit of alcohol on the finish that warms the palate.

Draught at Loyal Legion. Pale yellow in color with bitterness and a lot of hops. Really good.

Beerdrinker79 (2185) - Idaho, USA - MAR 11, 2017
32 oz crowler- Pours a very lively mostly clear golden with a large white head with nice retention. The aroma is spicy, pine resin, sweet malt. The taste is sweet malt, light yet a touch of caramel, pine sap, resin that doesnt quite reach dank status, not much if any citrusy qualities here. Body is medium to full and carbonation is spot on if not a touch high. Well rounded beer, that does not taste like 12%.

Beaver (1774) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAR 8, 2017
22 oz bottle. Pours clear copper gold with a big creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

The aroma is subdued - bready malt and ripe fruit with some piney hops and alcohol.

The flavor is sweet candy sugar and bready caramel malts with some fruit and some piney resiny hops. Theres big harsh fusel alcohol that really detracts. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with low carbonation.

Overall, this probably would have been better at a lower ABV with less residual sugar and fusel alcohol.
