hotstuff (4092) - Indiana, USA - FEB 4, 2013
Backlog rating 12-13-2008. Bottle shared by jsquire. When poured, this beer has a small head that mostly diminished, one ring of lacing, no visible carbonation, and an orange hue with a brown tint. The aroma is malty, hoppy, sweet, and fruity. The taste is that of malt, hops and fruity. The palate is fairly smooth and this is a medium bodied beer. All-in-all this beer is very quaffable and a beer that I would drink again.
