COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This remarkably balanced brew has a deep amber hue with a generous white head. Hopmouth showcases a rich, toasty flavor and sweet caramel notes because of the high-quality Maris Otter malt used. The hops are up front in the aroma, reminiscent of citrus and pine, while the resin-like flavors linger well after the last sip.

Heavy maltiness with first pour. Sweet molasses type smell. Low hop aroma - fruity and citrus. Hop bite is very low, but present. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nsanders (763) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - JUL 21, 2015
Tap at Fox & Hound in Arlington Heights. Alcohol, plastic bottle, light piney/resiny hop and old bread. Tastes like old bread with a slightly bitter finish. Medium body with a chalky.

coachd (340) - Missouri, USA - JUL 11, 2015
Sweet smelling with slight pine hops in the background. Dark for the style, burnt orange with an off white sticky head. 2 dimensional taste. Only malt up front, only hops after. Not very well balanced. Palate is decent. This beer is missing something. This bottle is over a year old, perhaps that's why. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Dark cloudy copper pour. Head dissipates quickly, moderate lacing. Pleasant aroma, tangerines, pine. Smooth taste, malty body and moderate bitterness. A little boozy at the finish.

Some fruity notes (grapefruit and other citrus) that goes above the bitter citrus usually noted in IPAs. Punchy, mildly bitter. Some pine and resin. Longer, rolling finish.

PrattBrat (30) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2015
Pours a cloudy dark reddish-orange with a small off-white head. Aroma of citrus hops and lots of sweetness, some spices and malt. Tastes of mostly citrus and resin hops nicely backed by caramel malt. Medium bodied.

Flaska. Ojojoj här var det malt o massor av russin o dadlar i doften. Något vinös i smaken med russin toner av parfym i smaken. Något obalanserad o finns vattnighet i mellanregistret. Fin beska.
