hopscotch (10931) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 5, 2014
(2012 vintage at CCBP) Draft... Brilliantly clear and new penny-copper with a mid-sized, creamy, white head that hangs around for the long haul. Fruity, malty nose - berries, citrus and rich, medium-roast malts. Full-bodied with a super silky mouthfeel and airy carbonation. Bittersweet flavor - citrus rind bitterness suppresses toffee and honey malt sweetness, but not by a wide margin. Tongue-numbing, bittersweet finish - more bitter than sweet.

daknole (10925) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Dark amber color with a mostly white head. The bitter hops and the sweetness in this beer battle to a muddled mess.

DocLock (10293) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 3, 2012
Bomber from Capones, aging about a month. Pours clear dark copper with 1-finger creamy off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, fruit, hops. Tastes rich, caramel malty, with notes of fruit, hops, and some honey and spirity hints in the mid-palate. Finishes malty, with a medium palate heft, mild fusels, and moderate complexity. This one is good, but not elite.

GT (9982) - Oceanside, California, USA - NOV 30, 2013
651ml 2013 yellow wax thanks to LtDan! Clear orange pour. Weak foam. Incredible dried apricot nose. Taste is sweet but juicy, big kumquat, spicy chili powder, pulpy mangosteen. Interesting, fruity, very good! Tropical, pithy.

DuffMan (9920) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 1, 2013
Bottle, shared by Grippitis. Lovely deep red-orange hue. Sweet malty aroma, very much a barley wine on the nose! Love this aroma! Sweet chewy caramel maltiness with nice plummy fruit accents and a hoppy bite in the finish. Tasty.

j12601 (9891) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 10, 2012
Bottle at James place for a tasting. Pours a clear light amber brown with a medium sized white head. Big bright hops on the nose, bright and full of pungent earth and citrus. Medium bodied, spicy malt and citrus, toast and warm yeast. A touch of warming alcohol, toast, malt, spicy hops. Pungent earthy bitterness into the finish. Blurs the line between IIPA and barleywine. Interesting.

olio (9773) - Tampere, FINLAND - APR 10, 2015
65 cl bottle @ Olutravintola Konttori. Bottled on 18.07.2012.
Pours clear copper color with a medium sized head. Pine needles and caramel on the nose, sweetish fruits, resin, the hops have vanished almond completely. Sweet orange and caramel malts on the flavor, some resinous hops, quite faint on the flavor too. Very smooth and quaffable, alcohol dangerously well hidden. Tasty.
