dinkle50 (1532) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 17, 2016
Clear golden pour with a thin, single finger head, lace present. Aroma of flowery hops, mostly pine and grapefruit. Full bodied. Taste is grapefruit and pine with a bitter finish. Hints of two row malt and a bit of caramel. Lingering grapefruit bitterness. A lot like Stone IPA, but way hoppier. Great beer.

Clear orange beer, small aery head, almost non existing. Aroma: very resinous, hoppy, bit sweet, some caramel, malty touch, dank and sweet. MF: soft carbon, medium body. Taste: sweet start, pretty dank, resinous, lots of sweet caramel, malty, slightly fruity. Aftertaste: sweet touch, lovely bitterness. Nice one.

varanid99 (1345) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 14, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2017 Orange-gold pour with a thickish pale orange head, which settles to a tight .5cm layer. Big citrus - grapefruit, orange - plus a bit of tropical fruit, good caramel backbone. Taste is a mild hit of bitterness up front, citrus, pine, caramel, and beautifully balanced, mild bitter, fruity, malty finish. This is a good one. Easily better than the 10 or 20 year versions
