On tap in the Tasting Room at the brewery at 6.7% ABV. Amber with a thin white head; aroma of malts and grassy hops; great grapefruit taste - crisp, clean and fruity; with a residual caramel sweetness. Satisfying.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
12 oz bottle, $10/6. Deep amber, soapy head, medium lacing. Pine, floral, citrus, caramel, pepper. Medium body. Fairly high level of sharp bitterness but the balance is really there. Well rounded. Pushing 7% but still reasonably light, and the alcohol doesn’t show. Really solid late-summer/early-fall brew.

Bottle - Pours brownish-amber with a thin filmy off-white head. Nose is grassy and herbal hops with a little grapefruit. Spicy, dry bready malt. Taste is dry, bready, and spicy. Lots of herbal hops and a juicy citrus finish. Nom nom nom. Medium thin with a nice amount of carbonation.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pours a deep amber, pretty clear, and a nice sudsy white head. Aroma of pine, floral, some sweet malts, and a bit of citrus hops. Taste follows the nose very well and is nicely balanced with the bitterness aspect. Medium bodied and the finish is pretty smooth. This is and always has been one of my favorite Southern Tier beers. I look for it each year.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep amber into the glass with a sudsy head that light spiderweb lacing. The nose has some earthy pine and floral notes. Flavors of caramel, citrus (especially rind and peel notes), some grains and light tannins finish with a peppering spruce-pine bitter and light spices. Nicely balanced, the medium body provides a great autumn quaff, smooth yet active, complex and substantive yet not overbearing. Decent ESB.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. 2014 batch. Attractive light to medium amber pour with a modest off-white head. The aroma tends to emphasize the hops more than the malts. A hint of spice. It smells nice. The body is medium. The taste tends to be hop-bitter with a slight sweetness and good finish.
