Batch 13... Pours a hazy dark golden amber with a nice white head that leaves excellent lacing, retention is ok... very nice lightly citrus hopped pale ale aroma with caramel malts behind... flavor mimics the aroma with the malts being a bit more toasty and sweet than i generally like perhaps noticeable because the hops arent as present in the flavor as i like... lightly herbal possibly medicinal hop flavor.. dry dry finish medium body, nice beer, decently lively, a light slickness...

DuffMan (9918) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 12, 2011
Release #8, bottle, shared with my wife. Dark hazy orange with a thick orange-tinted crown that retains beautifully. Aroma is heaps of passionfruit, citrus, and underlying pine with just a hint of a plastic phenol in there. Flavour is exceptionally hop-driven, heaps of tropical fruit, pine, with nice toasty malt in support. Some florals and spice peak through too. A really nuanced APA. Fantastic.

22 oz. bottle (Release #10) from Total Wine in Norfolk, VA. Hazy dark orange pour with a creamy off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit, tangerine, and pine. Bright hoppy flavor that does not disappoint with pineapple, grapefruit rind, and pine needles most notably and just a touch of malty sweetness to balance. The hops, although assertive, are not overpowering although this leans more toward what I would consider an IPA rather than a pale ale. Within the American pale ale category you would be hard pressed to find many better beers. Very well done.

(trade from douglas88) Release #11 - Large foamy head. Cloudy rust colored body. Pleasant hop aroma. Good hop flavor too. Not too overpowering, but not wishy washy either. Slightly lighter body than normal. I could drink this one pretty much all day long as a lawn mower beer!!

hayduke (5062) - Eureka, California, USA - SEP 10, 2011
Batch 5, shared with Strykzone in a joint tasting via Facebook Chat. Poued a clear copper color with an off=white head and good lacing. Nose was rich caramel malts with floral and pine hops. Medium to heavy body and a oily mouthfeel. The flavor showed complexity, with pine, flowers, ripe fruit, and a touch of vanilla. A really good APA. .

Strykzone (7033) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 8, 2011
22 oz. bottle from Hayduke. Batch 5. We shared it via facebook chat. Poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint glass. There was yeast in the bottom of the bottle and I should have rolled it. The beer was quite hazy and was a cinnamon color with a nice tan head. Thick sticky lined lacing appeared as the head faded. The nose was pine with some flowers. Pine was also dominant in the flavor. Some caramel and tangerine was tasted along with more citrus fruit. A bit of spice that I could never identify. Generally, this was sour. This was a really good and managed to be big (for a Pale Ale) and was also subtle. Thanks Ron!
