niftyplace (23) - North Carolina, USA - SEP 22, 2012
Nice light aroma with a distinct hoppy taste not unlike Hop Devil from Victory Brewing but much less than Hop Wallop. Pours a beautiful amber with a good long lasting head. Light aftertaste reminds me of something like apricot, but it is very, very mild. Overall good brew worth a repeat.

hawthorne00 (3719) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 3, 2017
Bottle, can’t see a date. Amber with an off white head that’s soon a coat but laces OK. Aroma of kumquats, grapes, toast, some overripe tropical fruit. 6+ Sweet with caramel, peach, tropical fruit, citrus. Not very vibrant but pleasant enough. Resin and bitterness creep up. Another Mad River beer where it feels like they’ve chosen to make a harmonious beer rather than try to be on the bleeding edge. Fair enough.

jamestulloch (3787) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 30, 2016
Bottle from Bridgend Service Station. Murky amber body with a thin white head. Faint lacing. Aroma of rye, pine and honey. Flavour of caramel, fig and dried leaves. Medium body with a powdery texture. Soft fizz. Quite sweet and heavy going. Tastes like a Barley Wine.

andrewje41 (3395) - Kenmore, Washington, USA - SEP 26, 2016
12 oz bottle poured at a restaurant in Humboldt County. Pours a thick copper orange with a rocky foam head. Rich caramel and soft pine hops aroma with a matching flavor. Good malt bill. Creamy. Medium bitterness. Has a memorable sweetness to it. Not really July typenif double here. Doesn’t drink very easy, but has good things going for it. Not bad.

Bright orange draft pour at 99 bottles of beer on the wall, in Santa Cruz. Orange and tangerine, ripe fruit and tropical. Good. And little dank fruit.

6 pack with Indian food. Decent, booze sneaks up on you. This one is all west coast- piney, resin, slick, citrus and tropical with caramel malts in the background. Not jumping up and down about this one, but I didn’t stop after one.
