Draught @ Stone 17th Anniversary Brewers Reception, San Marcos, CAshrubber85 (11710) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Pours clear deep golden with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, citrus, grape, pine and peach. Taste is light to medium sweet and medium bitter with a warm, citrus fruity and piney finish. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
Bottle. Pineapple and juniper/yew aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Sweet orange-pineapple malt and moderately bitter juniper/yew flavor - reminds me of the shubbery in front of my parent’s house (yews and arbor vitaes) than first got me interested in my career as a shrubber.

Bomber. Clear orange yellow pour with a soapy white head. Big herbal hoppy aroma and taste. A bit syrupy. Mellows out late. Very nice! hopscotch (11451) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Draft... Clear amber pour with a small, creamy, white head. The aroma is a mélange of toffee, honey, tea biscuit and peppery hops, and. Full-bodied and fatty with moderate carbonation. The flavor is loaded with metallic bitterness to go with the honey and toffee malt sweetness. Finishes bitter, metallic and a bit alcoholic.

2013-09-01. Crisp dark yellow body with a modest white head. 3+ Aroma is hoppy, fairly alcoholic, grassy notes and muted fruit. Flavour is pleasantly hoppy, sort of fruity, relatively bitter sort if grassy. Touch of tropical fruit, vague pineapple undertones. Bitterness grows as you go. 7+ Smooth average to medium bodied palate, soft carbonation. Nice but the grassiness of the hops is a touch distracting from the pleasant fruit character. Pretty nice. Bottle from San Diego shared by a friend. phaleslu (10907) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 2, 2013
22 oz. bottle via in-person trade in STL. Pours a clear, bright orange-gold with about two fingers of frothy off-white head. Rising carbonation bubbles, some trailing lace. Aroma of spicy, sweaty, citrusy hops, toasted, pils and caramel malts, grass, rye crackers, some straw- unmistakably German in influence. Flavor of spicy, citrusy hops, pils and sweet malts, herbs and florals, melon and mango, and a hint of honey. Medium-bodied, with a bready, bitter mouthfeel and medium-high soft carbonation. Long, lingering bitter finish. Potent. onceblind (10897) - Denver, Colorado, USA - OCT 18, 2013
Clear brilliant gold with a thin foamy white head. Nose smells like hoppy fruity pebbles. That’s the best I can describe. Flavor isn’t too far off either, substantial fruity pebbles (or fruit loops) tones going on, with a bitter grapefruit peel and pine note backed by a semi-sweet cereal and pale grain tone. As the beer warms up after a while, the fruity pebble-ness calms down and transforms into a more floral and dank earthy/fruity hop bitterness. Very complex. marcus (10889) - Sacramento, California, USA - AUG 13, 2013
On tap at City Beer. Pours amber with a thick white head and a citrus aroma. There is a hearty caramel malt flavor that starts sweet then turns more bitter. This is sort of a cross between a DIPA and an imperial pilsner, and it works pretty well. It’s got lots of grapefruit but also plenty of malt flavor.
