MaltOne (279) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 25, 2013
Pours brownish amber, slightly hazy. Nice full head. Aroma faintly hoppy. Taste is grapefruit pith, mildly hop-bitter, baked grain framework, Substantial and balanced on the palate. Overall, less hoppy then expected from the label, which was a good thing - nice full bodied amber.

Usually a boring style, I found this quite drinkable. Plenty of malt to back up the hops. Very drinkable beer.

emperorsled (11) - Aledo, Illinois, USA - APR 25, 2015
Hoppy up front, malty in back. This bet doesn’t lack flavor. The hops seem to overpower the malt though. Neither one overpowers your taste buds though.

ben4321 (4832) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 15, 2015
Location: Bottle shared at Max and Andy’s Tasting, 2/28/15

Aroma: The aroma is malty, some light citrus hops, toast notes as well
Appearance: This one pours a darker orange color, with a beige head
Flavor: Clean and malty flavor profile, with some mild hops, similar to the nose
Palate: The body is medium, with a decent enough mouthfeel overall
Overall Impression: Found this one to be just okay. I don’t have a ton to add beyond that. It’s drinkable. A little surprised to see it so high in the style.
