I’m always deeply concerned when the label starts off with “crystal clear water”. Seriously? That’s your lede? “We don’t use tainted ingredients”? Well, good, I guess, though it’s a little distressing that you felt it necessary to point it out, and/or that’s the best you’ve got to say. Anyhoo, this is Stump Knocker’s big brother, and in a lot of ways, the familial resemblance is clear. This is a little cleaner, though, and a little more hop-forward - although there’s just the slightest hint of buttery diacetyl I could do without. (14/20)

Appearance: Pours a deep amber-gold body flecked with a large amount of suspended particles. Fullish, off-white head. Minor lacing.
Smell: Bready malts with a sweet toffee edge about it, tangerine and red grapefruits as well as some tropical bits of mango. Thin, thin hint of butter. Lightly floral, lightly piney.
Taste: Bready malts, gently toasted grains. Caramel, toffee sweetness in the fore. Ultra light buttery hint. Citrusy, as well as some tropical tones and floral accents with just a sliver of resiny pine. Medium bitterness. Bittersweet finish with some lingering fruitiness and just a little bitterness.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.
Overall: A little on the sweet side and may be exhibiting a touch of diacetyl, but, there’s some nice hop flavors there. dmac (6646) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - JAN 25, 2017
12oz can from Homer. Poured a reddish amber with a large foamy light beige head. Aroma is sweet and malty up front, caramel and molasses, followed by sweet rotting fruit of apricot, peach, mango. Flavor follows suit. Body is slightly fuller, lightly syrupy, with lighter carbonation and an average duration on the aftertaste. snoworsummer (6377) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 1, 2017
