JorisPPattyn (10003) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 27, 2012
Arbitrary score 4/5 for Appearance, as nighttime conditions prevented correct assessment. Grapefruit, C-hops galore, fruity as few. Bitter-fruity flavour, grapefruit and grapefruitpeels, with a sweeter finish more reminiscent of lytchee. Very velvety feel, well-carbonated feel if not visually so. Quite balanced, surprisingly original; IPA-like and yet it is definitiely a red ale. Txs, CarlK!

3.6
Suttree (6392) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - APR 29, 2012
Reddish copper, loose white head. Sticky, resiny aroma, sticky resin flavor. Very hoppy, with enough malt to support it. Tasty.

3.7
SpringsLicker (3640) - Tennessee, USA - APR 28, 2012
Slightly hazy dark orange. Earthy hop aroma, sweet malt underneath. Firm bitterness in the flavor, long dry finish. Nice one.

Pint at Marble Brewery. This beer pours a dark ruby amber color with a yellowish tan head that laces nicely throughout the pint. This beer is a moderately heavy beer with strong pine notes from the hops and honey/butterscotch notes from the malts. This beer paired nicely with my spicy turkey-grilled cheese sandwich.
