4.2/5  rDev +6.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

From a growler off tap. ( I wonder where...?)
Thanks to Peggy and Tom for bringing this unique beer to Half Time
Perfect medium amber color with a slight protein haze at @ 60 deg. F. Great head retention and lacey cling. Lazy carbonation persistantly rises from the depths.
Aroma is sharp but not strong - lemons with bread dipped in alcohol and a hint of salty sea air. ( CheersTom!)
Full bodied and malty up front with and interesting burnt toast flavor which then mixes it up with firm, piney hop flavors and a tangy sort of dryness ( there's the oyster shells I'm thinkin).
Finish is warm and citrusy with a long lasting pine sap bitterness I'm still enjoying. Real nice " I swallowed some Ocean water and pine cones " burps!
Mouth feel for me was sort of wierd - liquid glides in , lush and heavy on the tongue but then seems to explode like somebody put an Alka seltzer in my mouth ; all foamy and fuzzy. It calms quickly tho and coats the mouth with sugary hop goodness.
I think this could age a bit and mellow into something really special. Hides the 8% alc/vol frighteningly well.
Many thanks to Tom and Peggy for making such outstanding Beers, and for being even better people.

3.9/5  rDev -1.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Paid $2.50 for a lil' 10 oz tulip at TDR in Exton PA while hanging with Tom Baker, HEAVYWEIGHT guru.

Clear dark, orange pour with a scant off white coating and plenty of bubbles rising up. Tons of lace coat the glass almost painting it white as sipped.

Barely wood smokey scents.

Confounding, dry light mustiness in the flavor department. Balanced, but orange juicey and light spices. Clean short cranberry dry finish leading to refreshing notes, while medium bodied.

Last swigs: Warmed Kraft caramel notes under spicey nutmeg.

Beer is good. Happy beering.

Sampled on tap at Redbones.

This pale ale (?) poured a cloudy, golden-amber color with white foam that left lace. The smell was mild and malty. The taste was malty, with some fruitiness, overlaid with hops. The mouthfeel was smooth and creamy with medium body and low carbonation feel. A nicely drinkable pale ale that packs a punch.

3.83/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A hazy, deep amber/copper body rests gently beneath a short, tight head of creamy foam that holds well and leaves craggy lace about the glass as it goes. The nose displays some gently fruity malt, but surprisingly little hops given the name. It's medium body is accentuated by a very fine, moderate carbonation that gently tingles on the tongue before sliding away almost unnoticed. In the flavor, Maris Otter malt is accentuated by a berry-ish fruitiness that softens into a sweetish caramel finish. It's well-balanced, but the alcohol is a bit noticeable. It lingers in the mouth with a mild maltiness, some fruit, a leafy hoppiness, and some alcohol. It's very much an English, rather than American, IPA. Soft and smooth, and full of flavor without being overwhelming; although the alcohol needs to be dealt with. Enjoyable!

I am pleased and honored to be the first one reviewing this limited release. I met jcalbi for lunch with my good friend Jay and we really enjoyed this selection. Not a huge nose to the brew. Malty sweet upon sniffing. Initial taste of malty pale malt sweetness followed by a strong bitter hop mineral finish. Quite bold and malty upfront with a stinging hop back finish. The tongue and mouth are coated with a dense malt backbone, then this is quickly cut by a dry hop tongued finish. Also there is a slight grassy taste to the finish as well. Bold and strong. Be careful of the ABV, you feel this brew 3/4 of the way through. It was worth the trip... I liked it alot. It represents to me what an old english ale should taste like. Cheers Heavyweight.
