Ungstrup (36473) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUL 21, 2008
Draft. A hazy amber beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma is sweet and very grassy. The flavor is also sweet and very grassy - is it Amarillo? The finish is dry grassy and very bitter. I like it.

THE stout tasting Pt1. Nice first course, thanks Bruce. Almost clear gold beer. Little off white head. Light palate, mild carbonation. A little tangerine hop, mild pine. Medium bitterness in the finish and mild marmalade. Not bad.

Leighton (20594) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2013
Bottle at the First Big Stout Tasting, London - thanks to Bruce for this change-up. Pours clear, vibrant gold with a tight, white cream head. Bright citrus nose, lots of tangerine and orange, some hints of alcohol. Medium sweet flavor, some toasted white bread, light pine needles. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly resinous finish, plenty of fruity citrus. Fresh and very tasty.

fiulijn (20222) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 28, 2014
Bottle from Haggens Grocery, Burlington, marked 8-13-14 (less than one month old?)
Cloudy copper to light amber color with generous compact head. Nice aroma, mild, hoppy, a bit animal. Lean malt and caramel flavor, with very moderate residual sweetness; strong hopping, very resiny, citrusy, zesty; a bit caramellish in the final.
Fresh and excellent, almost a Double IPA.

Theydon_Bois (18704) - Hazlemere, the lower Xhitlerns, Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2013
Tap at Laurelwood on Sandy. PDX, 25/05/13. Hazed light orange amber with a thin off white head. Nose is bitter orange, pine bite, hops, light grapefruit. Taste carries a good dose of pine, orange pith, bitter grapefruit, dank hops. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, dry finish with a good pine bite and hop bitterness. Decent piney IPA.

TBone (17068) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 8, 2011
Bottled 0,65l (bottle bought in Portland)
Slightly hazy orange color, small white head. Very piney, flowery, maybe a bit vegetably hoppy aroma. Medium-bodied. Very resiny and piney, almost woody hoppyness with some citrus in the flavor. Classic double IPA, drinkability is good although flavor is not extraoridinary.

Oakes (16969) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 22, 2007
UPDATED: APR 14, 2017 Golden-amber w slight haze. Medium head. Lots of dank dry-hopping, with a biscuity malt underpinning. The palate is more like grapefruity, piney. The malts are still nice, if a bit sweeter and lighter on the biscuit. I can certainly see why I thought this was so wonderful ten years ago...its still an IPA I would drink regularly.

mcberko (16619) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUL 3, 2010
Sampled on tap at SIB, pours murky orange. Aroma of hops, caramel and grapefruit. Flavour is a more balanced hops / malt body, with earthiness and grapefruit. Nice one.
