Christmas present deuce, release #52. Pour looked exactly like apple cider from a mill, hazy, dense light brown. Very thick eggshell head that was huge and settled to a quarter inch. Scent is subtle but what can be discerned is juicy citrus hops. Thick, frothy mouthfeel. Pretty evenly blended, a little more bitter than sweet. Bitter pine hop taste, not too strong though. Finish is more bitter an pretty dry. Good beer but nothing outstanding.

Aus der Flasche auf der Berliner Biermeile 2013 getrunken. Oh ja sehr schöne Grapefruitnoten in der Nase und am Gaumen, doch ein kleines bißchen zur bitter um mich so richtig zu begeißtern zu sein. kevinsenn (2180) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - APR 26, 2017
Bottle from Utah State Liquor Store. Pine resin aroma. Floral taste with some light fruit. Mildly bitter finish. Good! jinroh (1524) - ESTONIA - APR 25, 2017
Pours creamy yellow, sticky beige foam and slight haze. Aroma is sweetish, you can feel that they were not stingy on the malts, this reveals quite decent and powerful body - and hints higher ABV. Sugary tropical fruits. Taste is nicely hoppy, hops are balancing the sweetness but well, it still shines through. Herbal and grassy feel, some ripe peaches and pears underneath. Pretty good but a little to sweet for me at this moment for some reason. CObiased (496) - Bayfield, Colorado, USA - APR 15, 2017
Bomber - the appearance is a clear rich golden yellow with a thick straw colored head that dissipates. The aroma is citrus peel and juice, prairie grass and a hint of bready malt. Not a huge hop bomb but more balanced with a significant malt contribution. Good but boring combination of citrusy hops and bready malts.

Bottle to glass. Pours clear copper with moderate white head. Moderate piney and resin hops. Generally very tasty, but as it warmed it became rather malt driven and slightly cloying from the malt and sugar.

On nitro draft at Mindful. Poured copper with creamy off white head, beautiful lacing. Sweet malt, soft pine resin. Creamy and smooth. Svesse (8576) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - APR 7, 2017
(Bottle) Amber colour, slightly hazy with rocky beige head. Malty, hoppy nose with notes of caramel, citrus, orange peel, marmalade, apricots, black-currant, rye bread and fresh hops. Malty, fruity taste with caramel, orange peel, pink grapefruit, apricot marmalade, rye bread, burnt sugar, pears and a generous citric bitterness in the finish. Almost full body, with a certain sweetness. Solid and well made DIPA. Very nice. BRW (2714) - Barcelona, SPAIN - MAR 31, 2017
Bottle at BBF. Amber colour with white head. Fruit, pineapple aroma. Sweet, tropical fruit, pineapple taste. Medium body. Taboada (1296) - Compostela (Galiza), - MAR 29, 2017
Bottle tasted on the 25/03/2017 at the Barcelona Beer Festival. First beer from Utah, John Stockton in memoriam. Clear golden colour with a medium average white head. Aroma of grains, citrus hops and some yeast. Taste is balanced between malts and hops. Not bad. Next one please! Fatehunter (2561) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - MAR 11, 2017
