Aroma of citrusy hops. The taste is big and bold. A lot of citrus hops and some caramel in the background. Either bitter or sweet but balanced. Medium carbonation.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours clear copper with a creamy off-white head. The nose has some toasted pine, grainy bread. Medium sweet flavorbwith toasted grains, earth, some line cleaner, pine, orange rind. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Lightly resinous to finish, some more pine, earth, old city’s, grainy bread. So so.

JulienHuxley (5207) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 4, 2016
Sample on tap at the brewpub. Clear deep red pour with thin lacy white head. Aroma is really malty, super red, light piney resinous aromas. Taste is bitter, toasted grain, very resinous. Palate is med bodied with good carbonation. Decent.

DocJitsu (1484) - Pensacola, Florida, USA - JAN 20, 2016
Pours a copper-golden with a short, light tan head. Grapefruit nose with a faint accent of umami. Full mouthfeel with a light, fine burn. Heavy on the toasted malt. Toffee and grapefruit flavor. Gets a little hop hot at the finish.

willisread (1597) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 13, 2016
Bottle shared from AA. Big malty, caramel flavors stand out but nice piney, juicy hops match well. I was pretty lit by this point, but I remember the heavy body. Solid.

k0mpsa (2106) - Tuusula, FINLAND - DEC 23, 2015

RafeAU (629) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 6, 2015
Bottle in LA. Hoppy amber ale. Not sure where that bastardised scotch ale is. Decent amber ale.

ttoadee (1110) - Austin, Texas, USA - NOV 23, 2015
Clear dark amber pour, thin tan head. Malt and hops in a tug of war for the nose. Bittersweet. Middle is big roasted malt footprint, sweet caramel notes, toffee lurking at the edges. Finish leans sweet, but there is still some piney kick there.

Barnacle_Ed (48) - Milpitas, California, USA - OCT 23, 2015
Bottle to glass. Deep murky red with white head. Pine, earthy malt, bread, caramel, and some sort of light fruit I can’t quite put my finger on. Persimmons, maybe? Oily mouthfeel, bitter finish, and pretty heavy. One to enjoy slowly.

Nice hoppy bitter after taste. Tinges of malty caramel complements the hops well ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
