brokensail (16347) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 30, 2015
On tap @ Swamp Head. Clear orange pour with a dense white head. Pine and sweet citrus hop profile with some sweet dried pineapple. A little more on the caramel and malt forward side than I typically prefer, but its alright. Light bitterness of grass, pine, and citrus rind. Not great, not terrible.

Scopey (14014) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 1, 2013
Tap at Dahlias Pour House. It pours clear amber with a medium white head. The nose is earthy, wood, toast, hay and a touch of flavour. The taste is bitter pine, earth, floral, light toast, light caramel, resin and nectarine with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Smooth, well-balanced and rather drinkable.

Dogbrick (12612) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2012
Sample at Redlight Redlight. The beer is a hazy amber-gold color with a medium thin white head that dissipates steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Notes of malt and citrusy hops in the nose. Medium-bodied with a moderately bitter hops character and flavors of citrus and bready malt. The finish is piney hops with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Decent overall.

hopscotch (11005) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 4, 2011
Draft Clear amber ale with a mid-sized, creamy, white head. Decent retention. The nose provides toffee, light caramel, medium roast grains and not a whole lot of hops, although there is a unassuming floral note. Medium to full-bodied and mildly creamy with dancing carbonation. The flavor is clean and caramely with only moderate bitterness. Crisp, mildly caramely, lightly bitter finish. Flawless in execution, but this is more along the lines of a very good American pale ale or amber ale.

Fucken can @ home, courtesy of DrewFace. Cheers Flo Rida bro! Pours a hazy dark reddish orange appearance with a big butterscotch, nutty, burnt malty, strong aroma. Flavor is a touch better with at least a touch of citrus but still full of butter and pancakes. Bitter, bland hops. Yikes.
