Good amount of sweet caramel malt and a little bit of spicy floral hops. Hop flavor is very moderate for the style. No alcohol apparent at all. Just a bit of citrus from the hops. Mouthfeel is a little thin, but overall creamy and smooth. Not getting hardly any bitterness. Just enough to hold off some sweetness. While the hops are a little scarce, this is an extremely easy drinking beer. They deserve credit for making such a big beer that doesnít come off that way.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a nice hazy orange amber. Aroma is caramel and some citrus notes. Taste is moderately sweet with a mild to moderate bitter finish. A little malt dominant. Flavors of caramel, toffee, grapefruit, orange. Hides the 10% ABV well. Overall pretty good.

Pours a nice dark reddish amber color. Aromas of HOPS, and some other hints, maybe fruit, maybe caramel. Flavor is a bittersweet, malty, and hoppy with a nice dry finish.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
on tap @ Hebron Brew Haus / Hebron KY --- Nearly clear medium amber, white head that drops to a thin cover, curtain of lace. Taste is full caramel malt that grows into a medium carbonated swallow, then on to an assertive hop blast, only to see an encore by the malt. Complex and well-balanced. Recommended.

Very foamy pour with large head and strong lacing. Also had sheets of sediment from the bottle, really a downer for the appearance. Cloudy orange pour, strong alcohol content, but no burn. Leaves quite a hoppy and long lasting after taste partially from the sediment.

Bottle from Breeze Thru, cannot believe never have rated. Fly in the ointment is a September 7th, bottle date. A copper orange pour with a foamy white head leaving nice spotty lacing all around the glass. Aroma has over layered hops, pine, citrus, lemon. Smells dry hopped and dry hopped. Taste is of citrus, grapefruit, pine with some chewy resin, and some toffee back. Medium bodied and almost syrupy with a bit of an alcohol presence. Finishes to the bitter side of bittersweet and over layered. Solid effort, and still hoppy. Did not love the flavor combination, but decent. 13.9

On tap at Twisted Jimmys. Nice hoppy aroma, mellow on nitro with a little sulfur. Medium golden amber clear with creamy off-white lacing head. Medium body with nitro. Moderately sweet to start, juicy, sugar, caramel with light bitterness. Muted hop flavors with bigger bitter finish and after.

Guest tap at Fat Headís in Portland, RBSG. Medium gold, dense creamy head (looks like a nitro head). Sweetly malty, lightly toasty, with stonefruit hops, a bit of citrus. I donít mind the maltiness, but itís too sweet for my liking, even despite the bitterness.
