Taste is hoppy (pine/grapefruit) -- going for broke and taking no prisoners. Medium body. (7/4/7/3/14)

Scopey (13557) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 1, 2011
Bottle at Brewdog Bar, Aberdeen. It pours mahogany with a thin off-white head and low-moderate carbonation. The nose is wood, polish, resin, peach and pineapple. The taste is varnish, resin, grapefruit, lemon, lime, orange peel, watermelon, wood and some caramel with a moderate bitter finish. I found it a bit too thin and a bit rough around the edges. I am left feeling a little bit disappointed...

DSG (13355) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 28, 2008
(10/14/08) Draught at the brewpub in Munster. Clear amber color. Aroma of citrus hops with flowers and some malt in the background. Sweetish flavor, slightly caramelly with light biscuit hints. Continues hoppy and bitter with some grapefruit. Rounded mouthfeel. Good stuff.

Lubiere (13271) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2004
Hazy brown ale with a thin head. Resinous hops and citrus flatters the nose. The taste is even more intense, with hops which coats the mouth, and with creamy texture, this beer is an excellent Pale ale. Goes well with a gruyere.

djd07 (13176) - Houston, Texas, USA - JAN 20, 2012
Bottle. Pours a dark amber with off white head leaving spotty lacing. The aroma is floral hop and citrus. Medium mouthfeel with sweet hop and nice lingering bitter finish. Easy to drink an impressive American pale ale from Three Floyds.

Drake (13171) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2008
12 oz. bottle courtesy of ucusty. Thanks! Hazy browish-red pour with a one finger head, decent retention and lacing. Aroma is a brown-sugary citrus hop explosion with some almost thyme-like herbal notes. Big hop taste, pine, citrus, with nutty malt backbone. Full bodied and definitely drinks more like an IPA than an APA.
