jredmond (7900) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Sampled from bottle at Jamess November 2012 tasting courtesy of Blipp. Pours an amber body with off white lacing. Aroma is sweet malt, soft hop, grass, and fruit. Mouthfeel is light and carbonated with notes of fruity malt, light floral hops, very light bitter grapefruit, and light alcohol in the finish.

after4ever (7808) - Brier, Washington, USA - AUG 10, 2012
22. Pours a crystal clear rubied medium amber with a dense and creamy tan head that sticks around, leaving deeply ringed sheets of lace. Big fresh pineapple and orange nose, very fragrantly tropical. Creamy thick body. Toast, caramel, oranges, and pineapple on the mid palate. Very pleasing to drink fresh as a DIPA. Not sure I see enough malt complexity in this to age as a BW, but they can put vintages on the label every year if they want.

PorterPounder (7676) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 7, 2012
Tallahassee, Fl - Fermentation Lounge - on tap. Dark orange pour, off-white head, nice coat of lacing. Faint spruce aroma, hint of mixed nuts. Flavor is somewhat boozy, but not distractedly so, if I had to pin it down - peaches soaked in brandy. Hints of dates, some licorice notes and a finish reminiscent of fresh bubble gum. Thick, full mouthfeel.

Tap. Pours clear deep amber with a medium creamy off-white head that dissipates with nice lacing. Aroma is pine, citrus and wood. Flavor is medium sweet malty, with caramel, pine and citrus notes. Light bitter finish. Very alcoholic throughout, including a strong warming finish. Nothing special.
