Dogbrick (12596) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 27, 2011
Sample at the Ale Wine & Spirits Evil Twin tasting on 05/19/2011. Pours a hazy amber-gold color with a medium thick off-white head that burns away to an outer ring eventually. Rings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of piney hops and citrus. Medium body with flavors of citrusy hops, earthy malt and pine. The finish is earthy with some fruit left behind. Hopefully the 10% is still around to try because this one did not do much for me.

16.9 ounce bottle. Served in a snifter, the beer pours a cloudy orange/amber color with an inch and a half frothy off-white head. Head retention is good, and there is a lot of lacing left on the glass. Aroma is citrusy (grapefruit, orange peel), pine and a bit of floral hops, along with some sweet malt. It tastes mostly like citrusy (grapefruit, lemon and orange peel) and pine hops, and a bit of malt. Theres also a nice lingering bitter hoppy finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium, its somewhat sticky and slick with good carbonation. I think this is a good brew, now Im looking forward to trying their other beers.

500. Pours a murky dark amber with a big rocky whitish head and plenty of drippy lace. Enormous and amazing piney nose, just a fresh forest scent of the most pleasant variety. Highwater mark for piney IPA noses. Creamy medium body with lively carb. Theres caramel on the mid palate and probably some toast as well, but, wow, theres a lot of oily, acidic, tannic, biting pine flavor there. Ripping and stomping. Long piney resin finish. What this beer has to do with winter holidays, I havent the foggiest idea, but it certainly is delicious.

Very pale golden straw pour with a tight white head. The aroma is lovely. Loads of pine and citrus with a soft resinous bitterness. As it warms up the bitterness really picks up - enamal-peeling bitterness. Lightly fruity and very aromatic. As it warms up theres a crapload of zesty citrus. Great stuff.
