CaptainCougar (7634) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Bottle shared by Huhzubendah: pours a clear deep golden with a spotty lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet pale malty nose with some herbal hoppy notes and a touch of citrus. Starts with pretty good fullness and light malty sweetness with a clean hoppy bitterness and light pine resin before a drier bittersweet finish. Smooth and drinkable.

Tap. Pours light copper with white lace. Aroma has caramel malts and citric hops. Taste medium sweet and lightly bitter. Palate is medium bodied slick feel soft carbonation and bitter finish. It won me over with a drop of butterscotch.

Keg at Beerdock Leek. A hazy golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of passionfruit, mango, slight bubblegum, a little grapefruit, orange and subtle floral hops. Taste of passionfruit, grapefruit, some orange, slight mango, caramel, a little pale malt and subtle floral hops. Medium bodied and an oily texture. A dryish, slight caramelly, fruity hop bitterness in the finish. An IPA with tropical fruit and malt up front and a light bitterness late on. Good.
