Nose is very citrus hop and malt forward but the flavor is definitely more on the bitter side. The body is moderate but thick and possess very mild carbonation and a smooth texture. Not bad.

Tap at American Sky. Copper tan body. massive frothy, steady off-white head. Balanced, big, sort of standard US pub fare. Some rindy citrus, but leans more into the caramel malts. OK, but standard and forgettable.

On tap @ the brewery in Hudson. Pours a fairly clear golden orange appearance with a white head. Orange/tropical fruity, a bit spicy hoppy aroma. Somewhat bitter, floral, grapefruity, orange, mango fruity flavor. Decent.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle poured into a shaker. Again, either an old or infected bottle. This is the third gusher Iíve had from them. Pours a dark, dirty caramel color. Aroma of skanky malt and some pine hops. Taste is medium bitter. Hints of pine resin and a little caramel. Full bodied with a thick and slightly sticky texture. Fizzy carbonation and way too long of a finish. The finish is straight pine sap. Overall, meh. Boozy warmth is nice, but everything else is bad. There is also some weird chemical aftertaste. Regardless of wether or not itís an old bottle, Iím done with this company. 3 different bottles of 3 different brands have all been gushers, and Iím not about to seek out a 4th.

Sampled from bottle @ the some people are tired tasting (after borefts 2013 day 1). Clear dark orange color, medium sized quickly diminishing off - white head that leaves fair to good lacing. Aroma is malts, hops, a bit sweetish. Taste malts, hops, some sweetness, pretty bitter. Once youíve swallowed you get a nice mix of malts, hops and bitter but before that it seems off balance somehow. Wonder how this tastes fresh / straight from the origin.
