12 oz. can bb 12/28/2017. Deep orange, almost copper brew. Big spongy foam settles to a sticky meringue topping. Aroma is dank resinous herb, light citrus zest, earthy caramel, bread and a touch of garlic. Flavor is the same, plus some oregano in the middle and then a wooden finish. Almost medium body has smooth low-medium fizz and a dry slant.

hotstuff (5208) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 21, 2017
Rated on 9-17-2017. (Can Best Before 11/13/17) The appearance is a medium sized smooth, frothy cream head that mostly diminished, hazy orange body, fast rising carbonation, and spotty lacing. The aroma is citrus hops, grapefruit, grass, toffee, bready, and malt. The flavor presents moderate bitterness, citrus hops, pine hops, grapefruit, juicy, light spice, caramel malt, and lightly sweet. The mouthfeel is moderate carbonation and this beer is medium bodied. This beer has a bitter finish and aftertaste to it. It is quite tasty, worth trying and a beer that I would purchase again.

An old favorite that is suspiciously cheap so surprised we had not rated it before. Pours a golden amber classic IPA color and smells like wet boxer shorts and hops. The taste is a tad bit of bitter and some malty rounded oats dancing alongside some citrus mush. Very easy drinking and chuggable for a 7.3 ABV. Good for listening to some classic Scharpling & Wurster while chugging chicken soup with your boo boo sicky.

Dacrza (1008) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - SEP 10, 2017
DATE: September 10, 2017... OCCASION: week one of football continues...Browns lose another opener.... GLASSWARE: Maudite snifter... pours a robust, prototypical amber body, with ample effervescence building a single-finger head that thickly coats the glass in white.... the lacing is irregular but tangible... caramel and grapefruit meet at the first whiff... light resin, dank basement, and doughy malts fight for air time... all in all, suggestive of balance... the first sip is medium-bodied, stocky, blunted at the teeth and rounded at the throat... deceptively hides its strength in a crunchy, chewy mouthfeel... the caramel almost usurps the resin, but enough citric fruits--grapefruit, most prominently--with lemon and apple also late... this beer is a sipper disguised as an easy-drinking IPA...
