Bottle. Pours copper, with little head. A lot of sweet malts on the aroma, mixed with floral hops. The flavor is also a pretty even balance between caramel malts and citrus/floral hops - itís a bit on the maltier side than I prefer for the style, but itís still nicely balanced. A well-crafted beer.

Notes from firkin as I didn't take any when I had from bottle. The firkin definitely help out the texture on this one. Nice hops and smooth finish.

Sikash (230) - North Carolina, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Pours a nice hazy hazy copper color with an offwhite foamy head that lasts a good long while. Aroma is heavy on the hops of citrus, pine, orange and honey. Flavor is not very bitter initially but turns into a nice long lasting bitter ont he back end with notes of citrus and pine throughout. Mouthfeel is average, carbonation is decent. Overall this is an alright beer.

Good fruit in aroma here. Pours copper with good lacing. Medium carbonation. Good consistency. Bitter and sweet from booze. On tap at Hopcat.

Pours a dark copper color. Aroma of hops and malts, sweet. Taste is thick, more reflective of the hops. Sweet too. Decent beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Scrapersnbeer (1434) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - JAN 17, 2013
Aroma is very heavy on the fruity sweetness, hops could be described as soapy. Murky light brown appearance, like a barleywine. Taste of starch and resiny bitterness. Heavy, with an alcohol kick. Not sold on this one, even if itís adequate.

I canít accurately rate this cause of a mild cold. I find this to be well balanced. I was expecting more of a hop overload. This is more malty on first impression and not a hoppy that the label would suggest. The hop profile is there for sure though. The heavy maltiness gives it some extra fruit complexity.
