From tasting notes. Bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy dark orange with a small, off-white head. Aromas of citrus and pine hops, caramel and a touch of tropical fruits.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Backlog rating, picked this one up in Cleveland several years ago. Hazy deep gold pour with a nicely fluffy, elegant carbonation to it. Soft toffee malts along with Fuggles and shit in the nose. Beefed up, imperial bitter perhaps as a style? Certainly is aggressively hopped, which complements the nice bready malts quite nicely, giving this one a crisp, almost sessionable quality.

Nitro sample pour. pours a golden/light amber hue with a light fluffed head. Nose is very light, citrus notes of sweet orange and grapefruit. Flavor is similar, only much more intense. Grassy notes all over with orange up front and grapefruit as well. Quite drinkable. Nitro provides a different texture, but still smooth.

Nitro draft at the Khyber Pass. Slightly hazy honey brown amber with a thick tight white head. Strong dry floral notes overtaking a subdued honey sweetness. Dandelion. Lavender. Meyer lemons. Straw. Green bananas. Body is a bit watery. Absence of dark malt flavors makes this an interesting E.S.A..
